    I had my bike serviced last Friday and it was discovered that the Headrace Bearings were notchy. Cost of Replacement £200+, I queried the fact that 9000 miles was a short time for the bearings to last under normal conditions, the bike is three months out of warranty. I have just had conformation...

    Since buying my bike I have had the little nag in the back of my mind that I should have bought the F650 instead. My bike is in Vines at the moment for its annual service and getting the Head race Bearings replaced ( it is true they are made of Cheese). I have a 650 on loan, It is a great little...
  3. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Just back from a two week ride around Portugal. Having never been to Portugal before it seemed like a useful way to use up some holiday entitlement from work I was in danger of losing, and get some dry miles on the bike. So, I booked the Portsmouth ferry to Spain, changed the oil in the Africa...

I have not been doing mega mileage but am close to the 6000 miles so it will get a full service. Since...
  6. For Sale / Wanted
    Hiya. This is one of those oh-so-slightly annoying adverts as the seller isn't even one hundred percent sure he wants to sell it, but then again I don't know if anyone actually wants to buy it, either - so lets find out... I've also never sold a bike privately before so please forgive me if I...
  7. Chatter
    More thoughts on motorcycle emissions Being the sad geek I am I’ve been monitoring quite accurately my fuel consumption on the TA. The current most accurate figures are an overall mean of 46 mpg this year. This is all my riding, which is predominantly city rush hour, local shopping trips...
  8. 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...
