    Well after me up and coming annual flit over the bridge and blast around S.Wales I'm toying with moving my Bandit on! I fancy something I've not had before and currently thinking of either: Honda Dullville and an older DR350, and yes I know two very different tools for different jobs (and prob...

    t'was 10am, the sun was shining and the day bode fair as the intrepid threesome met at the agreed rendezvous, the Mile End Service station at Oswestry. Home of overpriced "food" and fuel. steveR, ostensibly the Run leader on the "sensible" lightweight NX400 Anive, riding the trusty Transalp...

    Looks like I will be able to sneak off for a ride this Tues/Wed and I fancy a mixed road/trail ride, heading from Telford out towards Bala on and off road. I'd be delighted to have company, many lanes are new to me in the sense that it is donkeys years since I ride them so may be a quite a few...

  7. Africa Twin
    Been a while since visiting the forum, but a few more miles on the clock. I need some advice. I can't quite work out what the problem is. On road, the bike handles well despite the squirmy Mitas Army Special front tyre. However, the bike has a tendency to veer to one side when running straight...

  15. Africa Twin
    I thought I'd share an experience that happened to me yesterday while commuting to work (55miles, mostly m/way). I have a German import '93 RD07 - one low beam headlight rather than 2. I was riding on a section of unlit dual carriageway just before the M4 (A4232 for anyone in S Wales) when I...
  16. Africa Twin
    Hi folks, is there anyone in South Wales or the border area who can take my RD07 for a spin? Sounds daft but I want someone to confirm whether the engine is running rough. I haven't been riding long enough to know but I suspect the carbs are out of sync or maybe a plug is breaking down. Just...

    First race last weekend - the Hafren rally in Wales - a grade 4 (out of 5) on the difficulty scale. A 210km mixture of tight enduro sections and flat out fire road in the beautiful Welsh countryside ... t'was great fun and the old girl made a good account of herself. The suspension mods and...
