  3. Tollesbury > Maldon > Burnham-on-Crouch on Tigger 955i

    Great Roads/Routes
    Out & about early on Thursday for a bimble on the hottest day of the year so far. First stop at Doc's for a repeat prescription, second stop Tollesbury for a snack - little independent butcher with a mad glint in eye and blood splatters on his apron that was selling sausage roll by the length...
  4. Where have all the big trail bikes gone?

    Other Bikes
    I was at the NEC for Motorcycle Live this week, and whilst the pages of the motorcycling press are plastered with "Adventure Bikes", it was noticeable that there weren't any big trail bikes at the show. If you want to spend £20k on 125+bhp and 250kg of touring bike on long travel suspension then...

  6. Oil consumption

    Hi, my TA650 (80000km on the clock) has high oil consumption on the higway. When I returned from France (1500km, at 120km/h, 3 panniers) it used 0,7l. It seems a lot to me. My theory is too high oil temperature. It was really hot (engine case), compare to brothers Tiger 1050...So I am...

  10. Transalp 600 oil pressure boss crack

    Hi, I've just seen the boss which holds the oil pressure sensor has a crack, probably from over-tightening the sensor. I'm thinking of drilling a channel on the length of the crack, clean it and put some Al epoxy then some tiger seal at the end of the boss just as a sealant. I don't know...
  11. What do i replace my Transalp 600 with?

    i'm thinking of replacing my TA 600 and Tiger 955i with just one "do it all bike", and though I'd ask here on everyone's opinion 75% of my riding is in/around London, so it must to be manageable in heavy traffic it needs to be able to sit comfortably at 70-80 mph on the motorway/A-roads no...
  12. CB500X Adventure - the new Transalp?

    i called into the Ace Cafe today - it was 'Adventure and Overland' day or something like that. I had a look at Rally Raid Products' "CB500X Adventure" and it's a great looking bike - possibly a (non-official) successor to the Transalp with a parallel twin motor in the same way that the Africa...

  17. My next bike project.

    I just got back from Germany visiting a mate who has had his Triumph T120 Tiger TR6 650 parked in his spare room for 20 yrs. He bought the bike in the USA and was promised it had a genuine 20000 miles on it..........They lied. He told me it was running fine the last time he rode it and it only...
  18. New Triumph

    I guess some of You Guys knows this already, but it's new at least to me. Triumph has added two new premium models to their already excellent 2015 Tiger 800 range. The XR and XRx have been joined by an XRT while the XC and XCx now have an XCA as their stable mate, resulting in a total of six...
