  2. Transalp
    Uploaded with ImageShack.us The below one was taken a while ago, I have since cut the rear mudguard extender right back. Part 2. of the story of my tall transalp.. http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc210/chrisyabass/Graffitti%20on%20Hosier%20Lane%20%20-%20Melbourne/alane1.jpg OK, I...

    Wire them into a switched circuit!!! I've just killed a battery with my direct wired set. I thought that I'd had a dim moment and left them turned on but have discovered they failed in a bizarre way It seems that the controller stuck them on on. No lights illuminated on the unit to let me...

    Well, well. For those who had the courtesy to indulge my rant about Konvoi; The panniers are apparently now in Salford. Atlassib, the shippers will release them when they get my £20 which I despatched today. I have arranged for a UK carrier to collect them for delivery to me. (Another 20-odd...

    I'm somewhat surprised. Governments usually only increase controls, tighten constraints: BBC News - Ministers to consult on 80mph motorway speed limit

    I won a pair of tyres on ebay today and for once considered I had a bargain. But guess what? the ebayer cancelled the purchase claiming he could not find them. Why list the things in the first place then. To add insult to injury he listed them with a photo, couldn't find them indeed! So if...
  8. Mechanical Advice
    Now I'm talking cars not bikes here, I've got a slight leak on what I'm thinking is a crank case oil seal. I'm looking for the easiest (and def the cheapest) fix possible. It's not a massive leak, more a weep that has collected over the months/years and gone unoticed by previous owner. Instant...

    I did the valves on the 700 this weekend for the first time. Not too difficult, but very time consuming. No doubt the next time will be faster as I now know the knacks. Below are a few of the things I came across. Hopefully they will be of help to anyone contemplating doing them themselves. It...

    A word of warning to anyone using this route to cross the Channel this Summer. I crossed that way overnight last weekend and won't be repeating the experience in a hurry. LD Lines have a new boat. There are a few more cabins and a few more sleeper seats, but they were all fully booked, leaving...

Friday the 24th of October was the date, the location was junction 1 of the M48/ A403/B4461 at Aust near the Old Severn Bridge. I had travelled to Avonmouth to collect Mel's ( a friends...
