  1. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Firstly should have introduced myself properly ages ago ! I have been on the forum for a while now since buying my RWB 2002 @t from a member down in Bristol ( sorry you name escapes me ). Had always wanted an @t but just hadn't quite got round to it until some scumbag gave me the chance by...
  2. Africa Twin
    All this talk of the new CRF1000 has got me wondering how long my RD04 might last - it's 25 years old! If I can get another 10 years out of it I might be able to afford a second-hand CRF...maybe. It's got "only" 52000km on the clock (which might be genuine) so on mileage alone it'll do another...
  3. Africa Twin
    Want Dakar styling without breaking the bank? Try one of these rugged beauties Honda XRV650 (RD03) Africa Twin (1988-1989) The original 650 Africa Twin was never officially imported to the UK and is neither as powerful nor as well braked as the succeeding 750/RD04 (which was imported to the UK)...
  4. Triumph
    I am heading down to Germany the weekend after next to collect a 1970 Triumph TR6 650 that my mate blew up 20 yrs ago and I need a parts supplier. This engine might turn out to be a total re-build and I need info as to where I can get the parts i will need and probably a parts catalogue. The way...
  5. Dominator / FMX
    As you may know I've replaced the original silencers on my 2000 NX650 with the end cans off a Triumph Street Triple (see original post). Now the winter nights are here I'd like to 'up' the main jet a bit as per comments on other people's posts about changing exhausts & air filters. So, I've...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    I havnt posted for a while because I got pissed off when the arsehole danish dickhead I hired made a balls up of my wiring and torched my CDI. The only thing I have done is sent my loom over to Catteeclan as he kindly offered to sort it for me. My seat is ordered and should be here soon unless...
  7. XL
    Hi, I have just bought an XL125. I have been told it is a 1984 model and possibly a R model (square headlight). Unfortunately it came with no documents as it was used as a field bike. It does however have a vin plate and the same number on the headstock so its looking promising. It is very ratty...

  10. Varadero
    I've got a 2006 1000 XL Varadero. Ridden her all over Europe and love her to bits. However, she's now got a £2k repair bill and I'm letting her die. I'm thinking of a Cross Runner as a replacement.. Anyone have thoughts on that? I'm: Not an off roader Do want Shaft drive (I go through a lot of...

  12. Dominator Technical Specs
    My project bike is done ,just needs wiring up and a good thrashing. I need £300 to pay for the electrics but that can wait for now. As I am still un-employed I think I will wait a while and save up for my next project. This one took two and a half years to build and I only started it because...

  15. Chatter
    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...
  16. Yamaha
    Hi all, while waiting for my new Africa Twin to turn up (spoke to Honda Ecosse today, confirmed I'll get the first one in)I decided to have a look around at what's out there that interests me as I feel the need! I've still got my Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer which I love to bits and am heading to...
  17. Triumph
    My friend Al bought a new 800 now with 4500 miles and has never so even looked at a dirt road and the head bearings have a nasty notch right in the middle. Keep a close eye on them. Probably over tightened and under greased at the start.
  18. Chatter
    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...
