  1. Transalp

  5. Transalp
    Well, I've given up searching for a ready made PDF copy of the XL700 Owners Manual. Having been made redundant recently and with a bit of spare time on my hands I have scanned in the English version of my manual as jpegs. I've then inserted the lot into a Powerpoint slide presentation and then...

  13. Dominator / FMX
    Hi guys. I swapped my old CB550 café racer for a SLR650 today. I like the ride so far, the CB killed my back at long trips, so its nice to sit upwards again. :) I'll have to fix the fork seals since it's leaking oil, but maybe there is more than that, and therefore I would loooove to have...
