  5. Outer Hebrides Tour

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The planning for the ABR Highland meet in Ullapool had always involved a day or two in scotland either before of after the event, but a look at the leave chart at work and the fact that I had never been to the Outer Hebrides changed that to virtually a whole week gently running up the Outer...
  6. North West Dyno day at Quill

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    If we have 10 or more wanting a dyno run it costs just a tenner each which is a bit of a bargain. Frad is up for it, I can make numbers up with 4 bikes/runs if needs be, others have expressed an interest. Running on a dyno is a great way to check/compare performance & gives the oportunity to...

  8. quick suspension question

    Africa Twin
    After following various threads regarding rebuilds / mods on this site I decided to splurge and opt for an Ohlins HO645 rear shock as part of my rebuild. However after speaking with a motorrad dealer today, they suggested either the WP or Wilbers equivalent favouring their superior quality over...

  11. Best Place to sell bikes?

    ...other than on here, of course. Is ebay the only game in town? Bit of a silly question, but after years of only buying bikes I'm having a bit of a sort out, and selling an old BMW that hasn't run in years, a less old Ural that hasn't run for a little bit, and probably (gulp) my RD04 (I know...

  15. Is camping worth it?

    Me and my mates like our trips to the Island (I.O.M. that is) but getting there and staying there can be rather costly. So camping is considered as a way of cutting the cost. But I question the logic, we decided to go for the Manx GP this year and have found a nice place to rent. The cost split...

    Well, today is the day... The neighbours two doors down have been repossessed and are on their way out. It looks like they are stripping absolutely everything they possibly can from the house. Will we miss them? No way! No more dog barking for hours on end and in the middle of the night...

    We've had a set of these manufactured for a customer, and he is very pleased with them, so I thought I'd post some pictures to see if there is any interest in having a batch made?
