  1. Ride Reports and Pictures
    We met at the Whinelands 1 Sotp at 08:00, where we filled tanks and Nicky led us to the Slent road where we found that the little thatched structure had been moved. I had caused a minor stir as I was suddenly not accounted for as I stopped to get a few pelicans to pose for a pic. Not every day...

    Not sure if this has been discussed already, but I got some plastic penetrating vinyl dye delivered this morning, and have just finished spraying the faded black plastic parts of my bike (chain guard, mudguard etc). The results so far have blown me away. They went from old, tatty looking...

  7. Transalp
    Hi all. Once again I ned to pick the brains of more informed folks than I. My prehistoric '87 VH Transalp has now covered 46,500 miles with the startings of some cam chain noise - not too bad but just noticeable (is it a big job?). I've been using Silkolene Comp 4 10/40 but was considering...
