Re: "Is it Spring Yet?"

Our Club does not really have a season - we've has 6 rides out since Christmas (between 6 and 10 bikes at at time) although this Sunday is looking a bit flaky due to Storm Ciara. Wrap up warm and make sure you clean the bike afterwards - I hose mine down and use a wash mitt and brush and then dry wi...

Re: Norton no more

I did always worry about the amount they were spending on a T.T. bike and highly priced exotic specials when they should have been ploughing into production bikes that many more people could afford.

Re: Pleasant Surprises on my recent R1100S purchase

Feel free to explain to my pea sized brain :wink: I'm familiar with iat sensors on injected engines but surely unless the carbed engine is running too rich or too hot or both, cold denser air won't improve performance unless of course its turbocharged? :shock: All I know is that when I was a younger...

Re: Ilemberger head cover bolts

Have you tried Sherlock's they also keep Previously loved parts from breaking up damaged bikes - have had items from them in the past.

Call them or E mail them as they don't list every s/h part http://www.james-sherlock.co.uk

Re: Pleasant Surprises on my recent R1100S purchase

I've regularly fallen in and out of love with my 11s over the years ( or is it decades :shock: ) . But this time of year I always tend to put up a lot of miles on it , it must be the lower temperatures , it just seems to run so much better and smoother. In recent years I've fitted a lennies and the...

Re: Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you too Dave, and all the other Trixsters. Here's to dry roads in 2020. I'd agree Happy New Year - but we've been out twice over the Christmas holidays wet roads or not - two rides out totalling about 260 miles on the 27th and 30th mashing rides from Essex to Cambridgeshire for lu...

We are are small club but apart from one or two older members (over 70) no-one puts their bikes away for the winter - it makes us laugh when dealers and Magazines start talking ...

Re: 3 wheeler

It's quite cute but admit it - would you actually be brave enough to rock up at say - Box Hill or the Ace Café on a Sunday morning riding it?. Thought not.

Re: Lower fork mounted driving lights

I would not mount to the Carbon Fibre as the lights will bounce up and down and crack it - the carbon fibre is quite thin as I recall only one layer. I had extra lights on my R1200ST mounted in the oil cooler air intakes (didn't affect the running temperature) and later replaced with LED mounted lam...

Re: This Years 4 Day in France

Were all the fines for the same location ? No Not even the same day. Ficed cameras that dont show on the Sat Nav (illegal in France) also apparently they don't look like our cameras and are painted Grey - as they all captured our number plates I assume they lloed like this one https://www.google.co...
