    Does anyone on here have any experience of the Kawasaki GTR1400, I'm thinking 2008/9 and onwards? Handling, performance, maintenance, running costs, picking the giant whale up off the floor, re-sale value etc?
  2. Buell / Harley Davidson
    Refreshing the Harley threads as no one has posted any for a while, well it is Honda Trail bikes after all!. I purchased a solo seat for my Great White Whale (Harley 91 FLHTP) at the Shepton jumble. The seat is for a 97 on RoadKing so it is not correct for the bike, but it was cheapish (for...
  3. The Longest Day
    Ok, Here's my problem. I did the 1st TLD (JoG-LE) on my own and had a fantastic time (rode miles and miles with Z-Weiser and met loads of great people) Missed the second :( Did the 3rd with the Mrs on the back for half of it and had a brilliant time (I could share the event with her 1st hand...
  4. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hiya All, Just popping in to say a quick hello, I'm a newbie member who's just joined the forum.

  6. Varadero
    The original idea was to have a post retirement sauree and take six weeks to do Alaska and the Dempster/Dalton highways on the Varadero but alas the offer of a new job has curtailed that for another time. Sooooooo I have permission from SWMBO to take a month and travel around Canada and the...

    The last thing possible in my mind was to actually visit South-Africa this year and to top it off also get the old R80GS aptly named Die Walvis (The Whale) in Namibia last year due to it's uncanny ability to drop in the sand and lay there like a big beached whale. Allow me to illustrate To...

    'twas me day off (from the kids) so thought i'd go for a ride. I did my usual thing & set off to ride one of the routes that i've done so many times before, but always with mates & therefore always so fast that i spend the whole time a) trying to stay upright & b) trying to keep up... also as...

  10. Transalp
    I stand before you a pathetic sinner in front of my judges. May you find it in your hearts... Ok, here goes: I recently thought about parting with my Transalp. It had become afflicted with the usual condition (corroded rims that had started to crack) and I considered chopping it in against a...
