I get earthing faults with indicators and brake lights on the towbar when it gets wet and i have lost the interior buzzer and indicator light for towbar. I want to cut...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

    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...

    ...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...
  11. Varadero
    Ok, heres the deal, I have an old Africa Twin, which is literally falling to pieces around me, and I have decided to put her out to grass and get a newer bike. I was torn between a 2009 Vstrom (with 1500 mile) and a 2009 Varadero with 13k on the clock, both with a similar price (£5,500) the...

    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...
  14. Africa Twin
    Got an acerbis high guard fitted, but i get loads of crap thrown over the front of the bike when its raining or muddy, so decided to make my own lower rear mud guard. Using styrene based resin, as the stuff you buy in halfoirs is more like glass and breaks easily. Cover my original guard in...

    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? I had 2 sets made, so I could trial a set - and I've got to say, I'm very impressed with the quality - better than...

    AfricaJim & I decided that the bikes had had enough of a rest, so we took them out for a little spin. In the snow, of course. This photo taken just after I'd had a rest and we decided that the ruts were a bit too slippy Evidence of laying down - snow inside the crashbars Midgets...

    I is very, very bad. Why? Read on. Seeing as Lowflyer couldn't make it to Galloway earlier this year and Raymo, whilst actually making it to Galloway never actually rode in the forests there, I thought it would be nice to get them together and take a wander on the dirty side of XRV'ing...
