  6. RD07A weight on rear rack

    Africa Twin
    The manual states max 27kg load weight but only 10kg on the rear rack, understand the recommendation but I'm sure riders exceeded this limit =) The reason I wonder is that I'm interested in the 58l Trekker Outback, the manufacturer blinds the specifications like their football team dives but...

  8. VFR750FK now a classic

    Other Honda
    An early VFR750 was advertised locally so went to have a look and brought it. These early models can now be used on VMCC runs (over 25 years old) and insurance is cheap. I have owned a VFR400 and a VF500 in the past so an opportunity to try the real thing. It came with full touring equipment of...

  10. Is it possible to allow the RD07 to start clutch-in in-gear?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I would like the ability for the bike to start in-gear (with the clutch in). My 1998 VFR has this ability - I found it handy to be able to leave the bike in-gear with the engine off to hold on a hill when stopping momentarily, then to be able to re-start straight away by just pulling in...

  13. Breakdown Cover

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, Almost time for me to renew my insurance and breakdown cover. Yes I have so far survived almost a year. Now when I got my insurance last year and looked at breakdown cover I'm sure I read that bikes over 20 years old cant be covered? :( The other month in the car park some dudes VFR...
  14. VFR12/CT recall

    Crossrunner / Crosstourer
    Just a heads up. I have seen several sources suggesting there's a recall out for the vfr1200f & X bikes, aparently the UJ in the shaft drive can unexpectedly fail resulting in locking up the rear wheel! The first reports of issues came several years ago so Honda haven't exactly been quick off...

Luckily I'm only 15 minutes from Salisbury plains...

  17. At it again!

    Bodgers Corner
    This time with the car. The new-to-us Mondeo has a duff boot release switch, you know the touch pad on the tailgate. A quick investigation shows the microswitch has terminal internal corrosion - all internal contacts fell to bits as soon as I touched them :( There are no suitably sized...

    Africa Twin
    Hello fellow lurkers, Having admired the AT for some time I'm thinking of taking the plunge and may be acquiring one! But which models is considered the best?....... (stands well back and awaits the slanging match to begin) ;) Obviously which ever model you have is the "best" as far as...
