  3. Saw this when out riding today-What is it?

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Anyone know what this is? Found it in the corner of a field, middle of no where. Wasn’t locked, the door was counterweighted and came up really easily. I didn’t climb down it, the lid looked a little too likely to drop shut for my liking.

    Chatter

    Africa Twin
    Hi all Idiots had a go at my bike AGAIN last night. Since they stuffed up my immobiliser not so long ago, that I had to strip from the bike, they've gone and f*#ked up the steering lock and ignition barrel now by trying to force the handlebars. So, firstly I need an ignition barrel. Yen, you...

    Africa Twin
    Thought I may as well put this in the forum so others can see it - Yen, what make was that angled feeler thing you used when you did the clearances on my Twin? It looked a lot easier than trying to get a normal one in there!

    Chatter
    I´m a portuguese guy that rides a 2004 Transalp, it´s my first bike and only done 7200 miles on it yet. I was invited to join in by Yen, that knows me from www.dualsportuk.com.
