Re: A photo you took, today

tigermoth.jpg The old man in the front is me having a one hour flight in a Tiger Moth . This was on Good Friday. We flew from Headcorn Kent - a lot of bikers there - the group of houses to the right of my head is where I live. It took a bit of finding everything looks different from up above. We we...

Re: Himalayan side stand

The way I shortened the side stand my bike - not a Himalayan - was to run the bike up on a piece of 2 x 4 broad side down. Lower the side stand and then pack thin pieces of wood and hardboard under the stand until I got the angle I wanted. Then measured the height of the stack and the difference bet...

Re: RE Interceptor price announced

I'm very much drawn to this style of bike as I have a W650. I note the RE has a rev counter and the rear shocks look better than on the Kawasaki plus the RE has rear disc brake but perhaps not a kick starter. I think the front mudguard needs extending at the rear or the oil filter will get covered i...

Re: cush drive sprocket rather than hub ??????

Hi Mike - My thoughts are how much road work are you doing. If you are mainly using the bike as intended for off road then there will be give in the tyres and the rough track surface. Therefore no need to go for cush drive. I've been looking into this myself as I have converted my PR5 to supermoto a...

Re: Heated Grip fitted correctly?

Why do Oxford Products make several types surely a heated grip is a heated grip. Anyway, in my day in the seventies I remember arriving home after a night shift my hands were so cold that I had to use both to turn the key in the lock to open the front door. And the joy of bringing feeling back into ...

Re: Xt660x

Have you measured the voltage at the battery. I had a similar thing happen to me. I started my w650 as normal at work to go home. When I arrived - ten mile run- I switched off the engine while I went to open the garage door. Mounted the bike tried to start it - nothing, no starter no click from star...

Re: Classic from our local constabulary

Just wear a burka over your crash helmet and you'll be alright.

Why can't SORN be for life

Today I received in the post a letter from the DVLA informing me that it's your last chance to tax or SORN a vehicle. Failure to do so will result in a £80 fine or more or worse the vehicle could be impounded and crushed. Yet, I remember going on the DVLA web site to SORN the bike towards the end of...

Re: The new AJP PR7 Adventure

Without a UK dealer I can't see them ever coming here. As PR5 owner I have to deal direct with the factory to buy spares. Even down to getting rear brake pads. It's not a big problem at the moment but could be if I have a major engine component failure. However, I expect any competent engine man cou...
