    Same situation over here with Road Racing. Someone gets killed almost every year on one or more of them. The same attitude prevails, as in the Riders know the risks they are taking. However in the...

    The trouble with lowering any bike is that you change the frame geometry and the damping ratios. For that reason I would purchase a lower bike or wear thicker soles or get a lower seat before I would...

    Of course a centrestand is the obvious answer but if You don't have one then get a length of wood appropriately cut to fit under the head of the axle bolt to keep the rear wheel off the ground....

    One of the "other rides" ready for a weekend away and lightly loaded. We should cover slightly over 1000 kms. I suspect a thorough strip and clean will be required on my return as there is rain...

    Charley lives locally here in Co Wicklow. He drops in on his Triumph Explorer occasionally to a cafe in Laragh Co Wicklow for coffee. Nice bloke. He is the real motorcyclist of the pair.

    I have had the pistons pushing back on my former KTM Adventure and require pumping as a result, but only after riding quickly over extremely rough ground offroad. I admit that the requirement to pump...

    That notion also falls flat on its face in my climate as does the notion that oring chains need very little lube. Folks tend to forget that there is no lube sealed inside the rollers of the chain....

    That Enfields basic appearance somewhat reminds me of my first ever motorcycle a BSA M21. I have a sort of liking for Enfields but I am not sure if I am yet ready to own one. The new twins are nice...

    I agree with Rippin that Tutoro is the best (imho). There is no take off required either electronically or vacuum. I have had both it and the Scottoiler and favour the Tutoro because of its more...

    I just want to add another tip for chain lube. I have been a fan of the Tutoro oiler especially on any of my bikes that didn't have a centrestand. Either way I have always been a prolific oiler of...

    Have a look at the YSS website. They certainly do one for the NCX and I would be surprised if not for an S. I use a YSS on my CRF250L and it works well on it.

    I think beef up the CB500X motor to a 650 and then lighten and develop the chassis and suspension to the standards of the competition. Nobody needs all the power of 1000's and 850's for proper...
