  1. Transalp
    Have few problem: 1, Thursday I started to heading back to Hungary for a holiday, everything was fine, but on Friday, after approx 1100 miles I lost all the power, the engine stopped working. Spent 10 mins on the hard shoulder and the engine started suddenly (I mean I still had to press the...

    BobA's stolen black Rd04, seen wobbling between lanes 1 and 2, looked like it was being ridden by one of the blue rinse brigade complete with handbag strapped to the rear rack! I assume its been stolen by an oap anyway as that was the standard of riding! - anyone else see it??

    Hi, A few months ago I was riding a trail with my Edi Orioli Desert Challenge Replica and came to a very muddy stretch when I had about 80 km/h...the bike started wobbling and the steering went from right to left several times.... I was in deep **** in the 15-20 cm deep muddy tractor track and I...

    Hi everyone i fitted an air deflector to my @ screen today to try to reduce the head buffeting.Comming up behind Lorrys/Vans/Buses my head was wobbling about like a nodding dog in the back of a car at 70 mph and slightly over when overtaking "officer" , Now i can ride with the Visor fully open...

    Well, I had my brand new Alp for exactly two days when I pick up a rear wheel puncture on the M25. I was going along at seventyish when suddenly the bike felt weird, wobbling. My first thought wasn't a puncture but that that something had become loose on the steering or swing arm. I slowed down...

    Hi all I've got a 6 month old TA which has been great with no problems. However, one thing I've noticed about it is that the handlebars have quite a wobble between about 30-60mph. I took it in for a service yesterday and they had both technicians look at it and told me there's nothing wrong...
  8. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    I'm off to High Beech in Epping Forest tomorrow at about lunchtime-ish. I'll be with a northern bloke (it's not his fault after all) on a Rotax CCM , a Bandit 600 and a Hornet 600. I'll be the one wobbling as I ride and saying in a loud whiny voice, 'it was much better here when I was a lad' etc.

    I was at Bridge Motorcycles today and was looking at some of the smaller bikes. One, a 650 trail bike much like my old KLX-650 staggered me at how totally tiny it now looks after I've been riding things like the ZX7, @ and now the Vara. I then thought that it would be quite daunting getting back...

    Had my first motorbike 'accident' today - an idiot in a car decided to do a u-turn in the road whilst I was overtaking him. He didn't indicate or check his mirrors. Luckily I was only doing about 25mph and hit his door at about a 30 degree angle. Completely trashed his door and wing mirror...

    Howdy all. At the moment I've got Trailwings on, the back is fine and good for yonks, but I suspect the front is still the original as it's well shagged. As a replacement I've finally just received my Tourances which I'd ordered several weeks ago. The thing is, I'd kinda expected these to...
