  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.

  4. WindJammer 2, Bloody Awesome!

    Since passing my bike test I have developed a really sore neck! I have finally found out the reason why, my head being buffeted around by the wind. After speaking with people about it they have said it could be due to my helmet not being streamlined enough, me not “tucking” my head down enough or a combination of the two.
