    After reading about the W2 Dirt Adventure boots in the earlier thread, What boots?, at the weekend I stopped by my local motorbike shop (Saltire) to have a look at them. However, apparently they've sold like hot cakes and they only had one pair left which of course weren't the right size. Can...

    Below is the rough route and I am lucky enough to have about 7 weeks to do it starting 3rd Sept. I'm having last minute questions as whether I should take camping equipment or not. It was the original idea, but it would sure lighten the load which is pretty extreme with tent, chair, sleeping...

    I’m selling my Transalp XL650V4 2004. Taxed to MOT to end November, MOT to May 2013. I love the bike and it is in good condition and with a little tlc could be in very good condition, but a major life-style change means I must sell and cannot ride or provide elbow grease. It has one previous...

  12. Varadero
    I've been looking for a tent that's small for my bike, but then it dawned on me, why not put it up front? Is there a rack I can buy for the front of my Varadero? Just a simple two pronged fork thingy will do, so I can fasten a tent to the front. Something like this perhaps...

I've taken some bits off to tidy the old girl up a bit, but I've hit a brick wall that's going to cost a fortune to put right.
