  1. Hmmm

    Africa Twin
    Long time since I posted on here, but I've just found a rare treat in need of some love:p I say rare because bikes of any size are anyway extremely difficult to find here in Myanmar, but an AT is an even more stunning find:thumbright: This one is up for sale for around 1800 US$ so I'm sooo...
  2. 700 Top end on a 650 ?

    Has anybody attempted or know if it's possible to fit the 700 4 valve heads and barrels to a 650 Transalp ?
  3. Rear wheel no longer fitting

    Africa Twin
    The whole bike is now fully restored. Now that I am trying to fit the rear wheel, it looks like the combination of wheel and spacers (one on each side) is 4mm too wide. I really don't know what to think even though I have attempted a dozen times to refit the wheel. Can the trailing have...

  5. Talk me out of it!

    Africa Twin
    There's a lovely 2004 ducati multistrada 1000 for sale here for very handy money, I'm very tempted by it to be honest. I know if I sell the twin I'll regret it so can you help me out by dissuading me?
  6. Oval slot in rear wheel hub?

    Continuing my research into the Vara, and the more I read the more I'm tempted :blob8: Anyway, I've come across a couple of pics that appear to show an oval shaped slot in the hub of the back wheel...wassat then? Also, has anyone got a pic or two of the exhaust gasket and/or it's location that...

  9. Grouse sales plummet

    Horrors of horrors :D I am tempted to the light side of Glenfiddich 12 yr old malt. I know, but the price of this delightful little dram has dropped considerably, so much so that I have taken on a considerable amount as a wee stash for the cold weather don't ya know ;) I'll see how things go...

  13. Tempted by the Dark Side...

  16. Anyone had one?

    I've just seen a Kawasaki W650 for sale - I rather like the look of them. I don't need another bike, but I'm rather tempted, it's a bit different, and I've not had anything like it before. Has anyone had one? Anything to watch out for? I realise they're not the fastest bike in the world, but it...
  17. Call me a heretic...? (tempted by Tiger 800XC)

    ...but I was at the NEC show yesterday and having a good look at the new Tiger 800XC on the Triumph stand - and I was VERY impressed - to the extent that I was thinking "Hmm... I want one of those..." I've often felt that Triumphs were nice bikes, but that on closer inspection, they were a...
  18. BMW 650 GS (800cc) Tempted

    This is going to sound like blasphemy but after 10,000 hugely enjoyable miles on my TA 06 I am seriosly considering deserting the fold. Entering an easy ford last week I lost balance and was forced to gently lower the bike to the ground. No damage, the Graves crash bars did their job, but the...
  19. Tempted... so tempted

    Africa Twin
    In the local dealers picking up some exciting bits today (rim tape and a 525 chain link!) and chatting with the guy behind the stores counter and I mentioned I was being increasingly tempted by a Big V instead of the 'alp as the Vara would be a better long haul tourer. The mischevious so and...
