Last summer I had some sort of engine failure with my AT (weird noise from the lower part of the engine). At least some bearing failure with the clutch has been solved.
Anyway I am afraid that this is not the main reason for the sound.. I have't put the engine back to one piece yet and...
Took the opportunity to skive off and enjoy the Spring Sun for a few hours today
Decided to have a run up to Leyburn for a spot of lunch and take in a few lanes on the way
Not long before I came across a fallen tree, luckily there was just enough room to squeeze under
Just want to put on record what cracking blokes these two forum members are.
I was facing being on my own for much of Motorcycle Live at the NEC or just with my wife at the busiest times at the weekends. These two stepped up and volunteered to help out. Phil even brought his partner up to...
Hi All, next weekend the wife is letting me out for 3 days (2 nights) which is pretty rare indeed, so wanting to make the most of it I plan to ride around Wales, I have scanned a rough route (see below) but would welcome local insight, as would hate not to maximise this opportunity.
and as I'll be working up to the last minute I had better get all my jobs done this weekend ....... eeeeekkk !!
Do I fit the Facet?
Do I fit the new Tourance tyres?
It's still soaking wet outside so I won't be doing either of those unless it dries up
But I will check the oil and pack everything...

As I'll be working in Austria for the summer, and they tend to frown on people just going offroad on a whim, I'm thinking of something more road biased that can eat up the miles...

I was this fall offered the opportunity to winter store my motorcycle at my friends farm. Apparently not the best decision as a death starving mouse decided to eat the leather of my seat :tool:

I'm visiting London in a few days and I would like to use this opportunity to purchase Haynes manual for Xl650V Transalp, since it is not available over here in Croatia. Is there any particular bookstore in which I could find it, even a used one?
I was in my local Honda dealers a couple od days ago ( don't get any ideas I was having lunch ). They had a couple of Gold Wings for sale so I took the opportunity to sit on one. For such a large bike I found it really cramped!! Guess I won't be having one then.
ps Sian loved the pillion seat.
