    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Touratech are running another weekend event in Ystradgynlais South Wales Anyone going? How about if we put a small label on our bikes identifying who we are - last year there were lots of @ts there but I didn't know who they belonged to. I thought it was a good event for the talks and show -...
  2. Thank you

    The Longest Day
    I have received a package from Scottoiler to help us on out way for The Longest Day 2009. Nick Muddle from Scottoiler kindly donated a Universal Kit and 5 crampbusters After talks with the committee it looks like an auction is the best way forward so we can raise as much as possible for "Make...
  3. Is the AT really tough enough for off road?

    Africa Twin
    I know that people say the RD07A isn't as sharp off-road as the earlier versions - I don't really struggle with it myself but that's just me. What I am intruiged by is if the RD07A is also less tough in general. I'm happy with the capabilities, but due to the mass of it it really tries to pull...

  6. XR650R still won't run more than about 90km/h

    without shaking the front end all over the place. I'm now getting really sick of it. Someone out there talks of getting 160/170 km/h out of one! I'd be in a ditch!! Anyone understand the dark arts of suspension? Admittedly I'm a weedy 11 stone max, that 154 pounds, a little inderweight for...
  7. Overtaking

    I'm currently doing my IAM Skill for life course. I'm due my last observed ride, before my cross check and my test. I'm concerned about many things, but overtaking is worrying me. I've read the theory and those that have ridden with me will know that I don't hang around and I can overtake at...

  9. So what would you like to see next year?

    Past National Meets
    I'm interested to see how you would improve things for next year so I'm going to prompt some questions to see if we can get some useful info. Good location? Same place again next year? Anything we can do to improve things? Enough loo's? Waste of money putting the two extra in that we got in...

    Just returned from HU meet at Ripley. Had a cracking weekend :cool: I'm not going to post any pictures 'cos they're basically the same as previous years. I'm summising weather put a lot of people off (girls ;) ) which was fine by me because there was no trouble getting to the bar or into the...

    Africa Twin
    Obviously from my sig I have 2 bikes....and believe when I say that my my wife gives me reminders all the time as to.."Why do you need 2 bikes? " "We could use the $ here..or there.." She then gets the usual blank stare from me until our little talks blow over. :lol: In the end she realizes...
  14. Jeremy Clarkson....Why?

    Personally I think the chap is a motoring pleb. He's just not relevant anymore. Talks gibberish mostly and god I'm sick of that tweed jacket and jeans. What say you?

    Great Roads/Routes
    Decided what the heck !! Me and my better looking half are taking time out to go visit all of our friends who have opted for the 'get foreign girlfriend/boyfriend and move abroad' option. Am planning on setting off in June/July and looking for nice routes. Not necessarily the quickest but not...
