Re: Just signed up....

Hiya Cloggsy, Have a browse and enjoy the forum, some really useful stuff gets posted. V Strom is on my list to test ride, will test the 650 and 1000, hopefully I’ll prefer the 650 as it’s cheaper and lighter. The 1000 though, does have better brakes and suspension. Get yourself on a ABR rally, Ecky...

Re: Wood gives me wood

Blimey, some serious wood stores going on there! I’m a mere novice obviously, with only about 4 cubic metres of wood cut and split and stashed. After buying a chainsaw, PPE and rest of the gear, I reckon it will take 2 years to get my money back compared to buying the wood. Managed to get some nice ...

Re: Recommend a tail pack

Have a look at the Lomo stuff. Lots of people on forum rate them, well priced too.

Re: Looking a tent can keep in top case

Nice idea Sefa to get all your gear into top box and panniers, but I reckon you will struggle for 2 people. Tent, sleeping bags, mats, plus clothes and any cooking gear you may need. Hope you succeed!

Re: africa twin

Unfortunately the cross tourer DCT weighs a mighty 285kg, and I’d like something lighter. That V4 engine and shaft drive must be the reason. VFR is a bit lighter but too sporty riding position for me. NC750 better, but perhaps that engine is a bit short of power. Most owners seem to love em though. ...

Re: africa twin

Whilst at the bike show last year I asked one of the Honda staff about the possibility of tubeless tyres being offered on the AT in the future. He replied that he wasn’t aware of any plans, but said that loads of other people had asked the same question. Like you Boggs, I must be a wuss. For road us...

Re: Peak district adventures

Nice one Sir, I like it! Appreciate the time it takes to edit, don’t think I’d have the skills or patience.

Looking forward to more footage of blue smoke from those exhausts.

Also liked the link to Fred Dibdahs overhang climb. Wonder what Health and Safety Exe would say about that now?!!!!

Re: Leaking fork seals.

Yep, works well for me too. One of the best tips I’ve picked up, so thanks for reminder. Always a nice feeling when a quick fix saves you a shed load. Made mine from a lemonade bottle as the plastic has less friction. Think a lot of off roaders do it as routine maintenance before they leak. Wonder h...
