  1. who has heard of kiva.org?

    Chatter
    Now I'm a skeptical old git, especially about charities (many of which spin a tale about something genuinely tragic to get your cash, and then spend much of it on some dodgy political lobbying they never told you about...) but kiva.org look interesting. There's waffle on the web site but here's...
  2. Which tyres do you reccomend? 1998 600 Translap. (and waffle)

    Transalp
    Evening, I would like your opinion on tyres please. My riding experience covers all types of bike over 16 years, commuting all year round in all weathers and playing at the weekends. I brought my 1998 600 Translap this July after the last 8 years on a 955i Daytona, which was reluctantly sold...

  4. Economics

    Chatter
    Boris's Moral Dilemma thread, and also that by Africajim regarding warranty work, have got me thinking about the cost of owning a new-ish bike. Notwithstanding the fact that most, if not all, modern vehicles have way more electronics than the Saturn V moon rockets and therefore need Deep Blue...

  13. Wrong Shock from Wemoto - Hagon or Rebuild?

    Africa Twin
    Quick version without the waffle: If you have fitted a Hagon shock to an RD04, what do you think of the performance? Is it okay offroad (I've heard stories about failures)? Should I just get an original shock rebuilt and reconditioned and, if so, where? Maxton? ABE? Long version with all...

    Dominator / FMX
    As a newbie to Domi's any advice welcomed. I recently bought a '91 model, and was out enjoying a rideout in the sun today. Along the way we stopped in a small chalk pit at the side of the road and had a little off road blat up and down some of the slopes and bumps, I stopped for a breather...
