    I've looked for differences between RD03 my but I haven't found anything. I'm not talking about differences between countries, but differences between a 1988 RD03 and a 1989 RD03. From what I've seen, the 1989 RD03 doesn't have grese nipples on the rear swing arm and the front hub is...

    Really made myself look a plonker today (yea, more than usual). Talking to a friend and he was saying about the RD01, RD02, and I thought to myself, "Hang on", RD03 was the first version and said so. "I have an RD01 he says, its a shaft drive. The RD02 was the Dominator". "Never realised this...

    Parked the bike this morning at a friends house. As we were talking inside, we heard their 11 yr old niece screaming. We run out and my bike's on its side with her hobbling and screaming. Turns out she tried to climb on it, opposite the sidestand and it fell in her. Dommies are lightweight but...

    Has anyone ever made/bought/bodged a custom front fairing mount for the transalp 600? I am talking about the bit at the front to hold the nose cone and lights on! I am considering trying to make one out of aluminum

    We have a tiny little upholsterers in Ross, and I got talking to Terry who works there and asked if they could do a bike seat. Not bad for fifty quid, he said he would rather not refoam it but leave it as original. No complaints here. He would rather not have his details posted all over the...

  10. Travel
    I'll be taking a ferry from Italy to Greece in the summer and I'm a ferry virgin as far as biking is concerned and I'm looking for some advice. When you leave your bike after boarding, do you leave all your bulky gear still on it ? I'm talking about tents and dry bags etc, not tank bags or...

    Had the Varadero mot'd the other week and was talking to the tester apparently there is a new mot to come in. They want it in for 2016, as they want to bring in a European MOT (may not effect us we may not be in the EU then if Cameron has anything to do with it). Tester told me it would be more...
  12. Insurance
    For anyone out there from Holland/Netherlands, can you tell me how often a Dutch registered motorcycle needs to be inspected by the government? In the UK, this is the MOT I am talking about. In Spain, ITV, etc but I understand in some countries, motorcycles never need to be inspected. Any...

    At last some talking out and talking sense for a change instead of going with it and not upsetting anyone. I've never understood how gay marriage or civil cermonies could become legal, but the ceremonies have. We have enough screwed up kids in this country as it is with out having to confuse...
