  1. For Sale / Wanted
    I'm selling my Africa Twin summer wheels, having sadly parted with the AT now :( My bike was an RD07a, but the wheels are the same an the RD07 -- and I understand will also fit an RD04, though the rear rim is 0.5" wider on the RD07. These were built by George Spence (Cupar, Fife) just before...
  2. Africa Twin
    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...
  3. Transalp
    So I have a 2009 XL700V, which I love but which has been used and abused as a commuter all year round since new ( 8 years now ). It's getting to the stage where I'm beginning to think about doing something with the front forks - not so much a re-spring / re-valve, but more that the external...
  4. Great Roads/Routes
    A while ago I brought I brought an’ Ordnance Survey Cycle Tours for Gloucestershire and Hereford & Worcester’ containing 24 one day routes. These are mostly all on road with few partial off road at the end. They are generally 30 to 40 miles long through country lanes. The routes are shown on OS...
  5. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I'm finishing my TA ==> AT bodywork mods. I have RD04 bodywork on a US-spec '89 Transalp. I also have the RD04 front fairing stay (#12 in the image below), and the headlights and frame that I *think* were off an RD04. However, I was missing the smaller brackets that attach the...
  6. Transalp
    No mention of the transalp! ----- Used Spotlight: Small adventure bikes Published: Yesterday 12:19 BIKES FOR SALE The eagerly anticipated Royal Enfield Himalayan has broken cover, although it looks like the small capacity adventure bike won't be coming to the UK as we believe it fails to...
  7. Dominator / FMX
    The sarga continues. I have now managed to access my workshop manual and have tried all of the stuff people have suggested. I have now come to the throttle position sensor , according to the manual this should have a reading between 4-6 ohms and mine is reading open circuit . I am hoping this...
  8. Africa Twin
    Hi guys! So at the end of the last season I started noticing a rather slight power loss. Here is a list of observations: Front cylinder spark plugs are black, rear cylinder plugs are white (=> running lean) After sitting for a few weeks, she is hard to start and misfires on one cylinder for a...

  10. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Went for a wee spin up the Ullapool road on Sunday past. Coming from Inverness, after Garve, you come to a Loch with a dam at the end, cracking bit of road, nice little twisties. Been on that road tons of times and knew this little road went straight into the loch. Glasnacarnoch Dam was built...
  11. Insurance
    I've recently read that if you sell your bike you must notify your insurers and cancel the policy ( or change it if you have a new machine ) the reason being that if the new owner is uninsured and has a prang you could be liable and pursued by your insurer if they have to pay . Many companies...
  12. Travel
    its all well and good to go for a bit of a spin like the long way round on a bmw r1200gs that looked like it crashed trough the front window of a touratech warehouse :lol: if you got the money and the time . but if life has got in the way and you got little time or money to spare for such...
  13. Chatter
    With all the debate going on about E-Cigs, I was wondering if anyone here was using them and having success with ditching the fags ? I've not had a cigarette since 3rd May, not actually given anything up, just substituted smoking with 'vaping' .
  14. Chatter
    Yes it's that time of year when the sun and rising temperatures brings out an urge to change tings in life. It would cost me to much to exchange my wife and kids so I have to settle for a "new" bike. I have been very happy with the F8GS but it's time for something different. Unless something...
  15. Africa Twin
    Hey Gang, Took my first tumble in the rain last month and broke the pillion footpeg on the right side. Wondering if anyone knows where I can find a replacement as I can't locate one on any of the parts sites. The right side is formed to go over the exhaust making substitutions a little...
  16. Bodgers Corner
    I've just bought one of these: And I've got one of these fitted to it: and I've just bought one of these to use as a small top box: What I want to do is make it easily removable but when fitted, to be securely held in place, initially I was just going to bolt it to the rack but my son...

    Shropshire, Mid/ S Wales run I am needing a day away from the joys of homelife and I've kind of worked out what looks like an interesting run out* from home, down the Marches, into mid Wales, down to the Valleys and then back up via Brecon and mid Wales then home. 6-7 hours probably... Not...
  18. Transalp
    I got this with my 87 Transalp it appears to be some sort of pannier frame, don't know if its to support soft panniers but it seems substantial enough to take Givi type or Ally boxes Does any one know what make it is ?
  19. Africa Twin
    I bought this rare beast in April 2012 from an Oz advrider inmate from Brisbane. Brisbane is approx 4500kms away so I had to roll the dice on its true condition by purchasing over the net without eyeballing it. The AT was never sold in Oz... big mistake there Honda-san. Previous owner dropped...
