Re: Scum !!!

Serious crime makes the news such as stabbings and the like, and sure, its note-worthy but I often think its stuff like this; the apathy and petty selfishness, the inconsideration and disrespect to others in the community that makes living in certain places unpleasant and I'm pretty sure that if soc...

Where has your Transalp carried you?

Yes, those who play the overlanding field may have seen this question on another forum but it seems members are not tA fans there, so.... As the title says, if you own a 600 Transalp, where has it take you? And to make it useful as well as inspirational, what did it do well and where was it lacking?...

Re: Decent brands when talking lids, please.

I tried a Held Flip-Up helmet. Not bad. Another brand was MT, but felt like a torture device. At the moment, my gf is using my Caberg. Its comfortable and fits her well. She'll have to buy her own at some point, as will I as they are all a bit old. I will start scouring the Sharp testing resources t...

Decent brands when talking lids, please.

Been out of the game for a while, eeking out a mere 200km per year these last few. The upshot is I'm out of touch, not just with bikes, bikes prices but also kit. I'll be looking to help my girlfriend choose a lid and I don't want her to be herded toward the €500 Arai's but nor do I want her to buy ...

Re: Stunning

I want!! You lot should see the Renard bike shop 5 min from my house. In it is the Guzzi motored Renard concept bike running a sweet €150K. The bike shop is twinned with a steak house called "160/OneSixty". In it there are bikes here and there and you can see the workshop through the window where th...

Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

You say you’d like a GS but they’re out of your budget. How about a post 1998 1100 (later gearbox). You can pick up a good one in the UK for around £2.5-3K. They are very reliable (I know I did 170K miles on mine) and very comfortable for long distance 2 up riding (just upgrade the rear shock if it...
