  1. Hand guards & screen

    Hello again Thanks for the help on the previous post. I am looking to fit some hand guards & a taller screen on my 650v. Is their any recomendations, or any to avoid. The hand guards are more to keep the wind off, not smash into trees. Or do I just buy a new AT? thanks trevor

  5. This is one cool tent!

    Chatter If I didn't have a tent already (that I'd spent good money on), I'd be tempted to buy one of these... Although I'm not sure they're of any use in Scotland (not many trees in the highlands, are there)... JB

    The plan: IanS and son Matthew, Whealie and daughter Molly spend the day at the outdoor show and then head for a campsite near Chipping Norton for a convivial evening chatting round a camp fire and eating off a barbecue. Me, I've just bought a tent, so I went along just to try it out. I set...

  18. Sump Guard damage.

    Has anyone else damaged their sumpguard? They look stronger than they are I guess. Not only is the base of mine a little sick, the side welds are too. It is a Touratech one, looks v. strong, but I guess not bomb proof! I know the bike isn't built for ruts and crossing fallen trees, but I didn't...
