  3. Trialer expense

    Bodgers Corner
    I have been wanting a trailer to transport some bikes to events, prices are crazy for what they are. Went to local steel merchants and got quoted for 2" x 2" & 4" x 2" box sections it was going to cost £200 for steel alone not including suspension unit and tow hitches light etc. But would still...

  6. Going tubeless

    Africa Twin
    While spoked wheels look the part on an off-roader I, for one, am convinced of the benefits of tubeless tyres (roadside puncture repairs are simpler and there's far less chance of a blow-out, to name but two). Has anyone out there fitted cast wheels and if so, have you any advice? I know BMs...

  11. Touratech TomTom GPS mount

    Mechanical Advice
    Well, it's finally happened :evil: As posted about on many other forums, my TomTom Rider mount has gone the way of everyone elses and has pretty much given up the ghost. Problem is it's all made of a fairly flexible plastic and as such it allows the RIDER to move about a wee bit when you go...

  14. ESSENTIAL Ridin' Equipment!

    Chatter
    Never mind worrying about how you'll carry enough tools for that Alpine tour - The Yanks on Advrider.com are more worried about where to put their guns.............. "I've read alot about how and why people carry their sidearm with them on their motorcycle. Read all the arguments about smashed...

    Chatter
    Am raging. Happened between 6.30 and 8pm, probably toward the last half hour of that as me and the girlfriend were in and out of the kitchen before that (which looks over the yard). Only had a drill and bits stolen but am really angry! Question- is there any point in letting the local police...

  18. Starting

    Transalp
    Any of you guys find that your alp can be a bit of a challenge to start if the situation requires only a little bit of choke? I'll give you an example; this morning it was brass monkeys, gave her full choke (no throttle) and as she always does, she fired first time. Unfortunately (being a nob)...
  19. Where do you stable your bike of a night?

    Chatter
    So, I've recently bought a house. Being as I chose a career in engineering I can't afford a house with a garage so my trusty steed will now be bedding down in the back yard - I concreted in a ramp over the weekend for this very purpose. Now, I've just moved over here from Belfast where an...
  20. Looking for.....

    Africa Twin
    I've seen centre stands for a reasonable price on ebay. Have a look at the Africa Twin ebay search on the home page to see all of the current AT type items for sale on eBay. I seem to remember it was a breakers yard selling them and they were brand new.
