    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Hi everyone, I am looking for a useable thumper. I don't need a show stopper, just use able reliability. I reckon an old xl 600 with a combo start would be top of the list, but I'd consider most things. It needs to be useable and that's about it. I live neat Reading, but can travel? Thanks Jim

    The good news is I have got rid of my Suzuki GSR750, which I traded my Alp in for a couple of years ago. The problem was, I tried the Honda Xs of various cc but none of them did it for me. So I took a deep breath, walked into BMW and within a few hours had bought the G650GS test bike! Hopefully...

    Greetings all. Being a Dommie newbie, I thought I would join this forum and ask at least one daft laddie question, maybe two? 1. Oil is clearly critical to looming after the beast. How often to change the oil and filter? 2. How do I check the oil level? There's no windae in the...

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello you lot, I've just introduced myself as I'm soon to collect my first thumper, & am itching to find out what the mystique is about this type of bike (2001 FX Vigor).

    It seems to me the balance is swaying in favor of greenlaning single cylinder riders. It must be something to do with the realisation there is still some serious fun to be had out there, where the car drivers cannot upset you!! Lets have a roll call of all you guys and where you are to see if...
