    Hi lads! I recently fitted some new tires, and to begin with I tried the 39psi on the rear, as indicated on the tire, and about the same on the front. It sounded like a lot compared to my old Anakees ... and I simply couldn't keep the bike going straight. When I leaned just a little, they...

    Searching the net as you do over the xmas bloatiness and came across this. Owner claims it was entered in the race. Restored, all original. Is it worth that much? Not that i am considering it. Father christmas hasnt been that generous.

Normally his drawings are of Classic Bikes his favourite being the Manx Norton which he gets prints of...
  12. Varadero
    I am taking advantage of the Xmas holiday to service the bike. I have read the owners manual which says that I need to do oil and plugs, as well as checking chain, brakes and other obvious bits. Is there anything else I should be checking, lubricating, greasing etc? I use the Vara as a daily...

    Well, that's me now until January 2nd, and when I go back I'm officially with a new employer. It's the same job doing the same thing but I was contracted in before but the firm is taking me on, more holidays, a pay rise, better rate of sick pay (although I've not taken a sick day in the 8 years...
