  1. 2018 Africa Twin DCT initial thoughts

    So in short I had the opportunity of test riding an AT DCT yesterday with a mind to buying. It wasn't just a suck it and see type test ride as I was a serious buyer and falling short of any major dramas it was coming home with me. The bike was one month old, 135 miles and over £2k saving on new. After the obligatory licence check and signing of forms I had the controls briefing by the salesman and then left to my own devices. Initially as I sat on the bike in the low seat position I was very aware ...

  2. Comparison between GSA twin cam and GSA LC

    I know many people have made the change and love them or loath them everyone has an opinion. Last week had me drop my 62 plate 90th Edition off for its 18k mile service and the pre-arranged loan bike for the day was a 17 plate GSA LC. I was keen to have a go and see what improvements had been made and how it compared to my older steed.

    First impressions were ok with the novelty of keyless ignition and a recognisable layout, but the the change to Japanese style indicator selector nearly ...

  4. Dyno and remap at Hilltop

    Today I made the journey up to Hilltop to see what difference a remap would make to my bike. It is a 62 plate twin cam GSA with 13,400 miles on the clock. With a recent 12k service I thought now was the ideal time to get it done.

    The initial dyno run came it with 83.96 bhp @ 7516 rpm at the wheel and a distinct dip at 4.5k rpm. The bike was also running lean throughout and especially so at 2.7 to 3.5k rpm.

  5. Wife has first run out on the bike

    It has been many years since my wife came out on the bike. It is more than 11 years as it was before my daughter was born. It might have something to do with always having 1 litre sports bikes and her having to sit perched on top of a tiny seat going at ridiculous speeds with anchor like brakes. Anyway, with the GSA she had expressed an interest and bike clothes have been bought. This week end we went out on a ride, a nice sedate bimble in preparation for our Euro weekend next month. It all went ...
