  1. Ride Reports and Pictures
    we went to the Auvergne last year but due to various circumstances we missed out on most of what we’d planned to do, so we went back this year. I actually have very few pics to go with this, which is a shame cos the scenery is stunning & the roads wonderful, but this lot are not into photos &...

  10. Africa Twin
    Not sure what I'm doing to my brake disks but they sure don't like it. Having felt the brakes pumping slightly for some time I suspected that the front brake disks were warped. I sensed this because I've experienced it before. In fact, this is the second set of disks I've had in about 18 months...

    Has anyone changed their chain guide on the swingarm lately? If so, does the swingarm have to come out and where did you manage to pick one up from? I've tried the usual suspects but no luck yet. I put new chain & sprockets on a couple of weeks ago but they seem to be running rougher than I'd...
  15. Chatter
    The LH headlamp reflector is peeling on my @, apart from the usual suspects such as the main stealer, e-blag and the for-sale/wanted bit on here, are there any other reputable places about to get bits like new headlamp lenses etc? Apologies if its a bit of a bone question, but if it was a...
