My name is Stewart, I have just bought my first Africa Twin, a 1994 model.
Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
I am split between Mid Wales and Wiltshire at the moment, and I am looking to get away across to Germany in the next few weeks if work allows it!
Just wondering whether anyone can suggest any motorcycle clothing shops in the north Wales / north west region that stock a good range of leather trousers? (Or a shop near Leicester as I'm over that way on a course next week.)I'm in need of a pair but can't find any that fit correctly in my...
On a recent trip to Wales my trusty 94 xr250 let me down.
Just before it stopped all the electrics stopped but it was still running.
Then it stopped, I've got spark and had some little fires but not enough to run. And some wierd back fires.
Its think it's a electrical problem
Since changing the CDI my Dominator starts fine first thing in the morning, garaged over night, after work though she is a pig to start. Again garaged all day in a public car park. Messing about with different amounts of choke the bike backfires bad and then eventually starts.
The only other...
I have a rim from Hornet that fits Varadero as "plug & play", with matching brake disc 5 mm thick, I put original 150 mm rear wheel back on my bike so this is now surplus to requirements.
Also set of Metzeler Karoo 3 tyres with around 650 miles on them, for adventerous Vara riders.
Hello. Any one have advice on trail riding in Wales. I have a few spare days in late August and would like to put my xr in my van and head off. I don't want to book a guide as I really am of the gentle pace and have heard story's of guides and groups going flat out. Just want to know my way...
Dutchie needs some help in Wales (update: stranded! But back home)
Sorry for having a first post with a request for help. I'm on holiday in Wales and my fuel pump is acting wierd. It stops pumping suddenly or sometimes directly after starting. A restart helps and thats how i came from...
Hi all I've been lurking in this forum for a few months, bought an xl700 transalp three weeks ago and enjoying it, living in Welshest Wales helps a lot, went for a spin up the Elan valley yesterday and had great fun despite appalling weather.
I will be heading to Wales at the end of the week and while I don't expect any issues I will be happier if I had breakdown cover. I actually have a new insurance policy starting on the 14th February with adequate cover but nothing before then.
Is it possible to get short term cover...
Well I've decided that the easiest way to do my recent tour trip write up is going to be in the form of a blog.
That way it's going to be more easily readable than by inserting a few random images on here.
So, to date I've managed to write up the first half of the journey covering North Wales...
What a trip!
So far i've done just 1434 miles from home in north Wales down to Calella near Barcelona in Spain.
And what roads!!! (well apart from the motorways of course)
They've been fantastic!
They twist, they turn, they bend, they run straight and all the time the views have been...
Just joined the Forum, been running CRF250x for a year and loving it....
Need a bit of advice of compatability of parts with other CRF after experiencing some damage to my
crankcase cover and clutch cover after an argument with a big rock!!
Another new topic to follow...
Hi all, I've been riding for 20+ years and in that time I've had a touring bike and a whole heap of race bikes, the last three were a 1998 zx6r a 2005 749s and a 2000 r6. I've recently got back into bikes after crashing the 749 on a hairpin in Wales back in 2010.
Last year I bought a 1977...
