  1. Africa Twin
    Evening All When I bought my bike I noticed that some of the large fairing / cowl fixings were chewed up and two weren't correct. Ordered some new ones and have managed to get four of the five undone but one is absolutely stuck fast and in a sorry old state. The cross head is non existent and...

    well I can tell you all now as I was sworn to secrecy until today. Ruth was doing her training for her Mod 1 the weekend of the national and passed on the Monday AND, she's just passed her Mod 2 :D we've got a nice little BMW F650CS (the one with the elastic band drive) in the garage for her...

  4. Africa Twin
    My new set of pads arrived from Lings.. The old ones weren't as bad as I first thought they might be; Lots of life left on them. However there was a shower of bits of pad as I removed the front ones, and some strange wear on one edge:confused: There were also some bits of gravel in there too...
  5. Transalp
    Hi guys, Sorry if this question seems to have been asked before, but I think it's slightly different and is causing me a bit of head scratching. Similar threads are ones like these: http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/transalp/45700-front-sprocket-way-round.html www.TransAlp.org • View topic - Front...

    Morning all, Was riding to work this morning, mulling things over - as you do - and I was thinking[1]: Whatever happened to "scramblers"[2] or "dual sport" sort of bikes - aka "soft-roaders"? You know, 350 to 500 singles, slightly knobbly tyres, wide-ish bars, but not full-on enduro’s? IE...
  7. XR
    Went for a ride with the local DSMRA club on Sunday and foolishly tried a few tracks that were a bit too hard for me as I've just returned to riding. Unfortunately stalled the bike on one of the hills, came off and ruptured my Achilles.:mad: I really enjoy the XR400, but not having the e...

    Just been on the bike for the first time in seven weeks, since breaking my ribs green-laning. Whoohooo! (I think that is the correct technical term;)) Only did a little 40 mile circuit. Testing new gear and the full body armour option I think I will be wearing from now on (the ribs are still...

    We had a little run through the Lake District today and stopped at the Royal Hotel in Dockray near Pooley Bridge. Now, we were early on account of the clock changing and my stomach not changing with it. But bang on 12.00 we ordered 2 Sunday lunches and a couple of drinks. About 20minutes later...

    I was outside the front of the house a couple of weeks ago marvelling at the moronic driving and near grid-lock caused by the school run. A Thrifty hire van went past and there was a loud bang as the passenger mirror on the Thrifty van hit the rear corner of my neighbour's van. I got the...
  11. Product Reviews
    Just thought I'd post up a small review of the Sena SMH10 intercoms I've recently bought you can buy the units either singly or as a twin pack, I bought two single units as they were on offer and the supplier had sold out of twin packs. Helmet Fitting, the kit comes supplied with a choice...

    We managed to break 2 lightweight Gelert folding camping chairs today - brand new first use. I suppose at £6.99 I shouldn't be surprised but as they are supposed to take 100kg and weren't I am disappointed. I will get my money back but need a couple of light packable comfy chairs by next...
  14. Mechanical Advice
    recently changed my pads on the front end for the first time – only had the bike 2 years! Anyhoo, there were no shims behind the old ones, and in the manual it only states "remove shims, if fitted". Now they wouldnt have bothered to put them in there if they werent sorta important – So, not...
