Re: TKC 80

I've had 80's on my Africa Twins for around 15 yrs now, and like them a lot both on tarmac and gravel/mud (nothing too radical off-road).

Re: What’s happened to all the cheap bikes

I've always fancied one of these, an XL600LM, which harks back to the early days of the Paris - Dakar, when Honda won the bike class using a 500 single in 1982. Unfortunately, getting hold of an XL500R PD is virtually impossible, so settling for a slightly later 600 version is more realistic and the...
