Re: Groan

Yesterday I was washing my motorbike with the girlfriend.








She said "Can't you use a sponge instead!"

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Just got back from a Prague city break with the girlfriend from Thu 12 - Sun 15 Mar. Seeing the city close down gradually was quite a surreal experience and main tourist attractions being empty until 10am (like 50 people on the entire Charles Bridge). No enforced isolation and public transport still...

Re: Triumph...now all made in Thailand

More production is shifting to Thailand. The fact a vast majority are manufactured there isn't news. Has been since iirc the last of the carb Bonnies (certainly since EFI Bonnies). The situation for a long while (and may still be so) there's an initial time frame where they are solely manufactured i...

Re: Norton in administration

I'm not surprised from a purely motorcycle perspective (not taking into consideration other troubles owners may have had).
They were selling purely low volume, hand made, high price bikes but from the outside looked like they were trying to run the brand as a higher volume manufacturer.

Re: Two-stroke revival?

Now that sounds very interesting!

I'm a fan of VisioRacer on youtube so hopefully this does link to the 2 stroke search with some nice vids of 2 stroke cars and bikes (usually with all sorts of stats and facts too)

Re: Africa Eco Race on TV?

99% sure there won't be any tv coverage. Their youtube has daily updates like the Dakar one does, LP usually gets things out daily as well which obviously covers the team very well. ADVRider has a specific coverage thread for chat and links. People over there seem to have a much bigger interest this...

Re: Exhaust querys

I'd personally be inclined to go for the full Akrapovic knowing actual R&D goes into their systems, unlike many many other aftermarket manufacturers that have a silencer and make headers to fit them. OE are built to pass noise tests and help with emissions, which they are optimised for. Aftermarket ...

Re: Dakar videos 1997 - 2001

love the old Dakar stuff not to take anything away from the modern competitors, like most motorsport it seems to have lost its soul, from my perspective (distant spectator only of the Dakar) thanks for the link. Agreed there is definitely a charm to the older stuff when it was still in Africa! bril...

Dakar videos 1997 - 2001

Found this channel uploading what looks like every Eurosport video of the Dakar rally from 1997 to 2001
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-cpXY ... uery=dakar

With the Dakar just around the corner (yay!) seemed like good timing!
