    Dominator / FMX
    Well lads that time again where I'm thinking of my next bike, I'm leaning towards another Dominator but they seem to be slim on the ground in this neck of woods (ROI), I am wondering if anyone here has had both and would you recommend one over the other? Thanks in advance:thumbright:
  2. Exploring around the Southern Alps

    Africa Twin
    After a little trip on my own I was keen to get back to the Sestriere area with a mate - it all felt a bit bold on my own! True adventure indeed. Anyway, mate turned up with a GS and we had a "quick" lap round the Col delle Finistere and Strada dell'Assieta in the afternoon. Quick until we hit...

  4. 2006 xr250 head light

    I have the above bike with elec start and no kick start. Is there a way of putting a inline switch in the loom so the front and back light can be switched off for starting on the button.

    Africa Twin
    Well after over a year of K60 Scout on the bike I decided today to get the Mitas e09 + Pirelli M21 combi fitted.
