Dec 02, 2018 - 1:25 AM - by Otischop
Hi all, is it ok to leave on bobbins on your bike even when not using the paddock stand? I'm sure it's as they are just bolts secured in by a threaded nut.
Also anyone else find it hard to get a vulcan 650s 2018 up on a paddock stands? Took me awhile with a bit of balancing act :)

OK - time to raid the piggybank and get some new gear. Has anyone used Oxford's Laminate Tech jocks/johnnies? Their pricing looks great when compared to Dainese.

Also who stocks Oxford clothing in Ireland(Cork preferably) ...

» What do you wear?
Nov 26, 2018 - 8:46 PM - by Aato
Hi guy's, just curious to find out what you guys wear when riding in this cold/wet weather? I recently ordered new (first time) gear and I'm not too happy with the fit on the textile pants. They're super baggy and I was hoping to tuck them into my boots but no chance can I get them in. Also another thing is the padding on shins and knees's sits below my knee's even when fully adjusted to maximum height. On the other hand I was thinking of some kevlar jeans but not sure if they'd suit this weather? And lastly is it even worth thinking of leather pants in this weather or no?

» [newbie] Chain wax general question
Nov 26, 2018 - 12:11 PM - by n2o88
Hi all, brand new rider here, this is possibly a silly question, please bear with me

Yesterday I've done my first cleaning&lubing on my motorcycle's chain (it's a 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650, the sport-tourer one).

I've cleaned the chain first with the WD40 Chain Cleaner. Then, after cleaning the rest of the bike, I've applied this WD40 Chain Wax (for wet conditions says the can).
I've read that with wax you're supposed to apply that after a short ride, so that the chain is warm, but I did the cleaning first, so I couldnt. Instead, i've put the wax on and left it sit overnight.
This morning I noticed that the chain appears... [Read More]

» What a Kick in the NUTTS
Nov 26, 2018 - 11:42 AM - by The Road Runner
Just home after spending almost nine weeks in hospital , bike accident,....and the first call this morning was to my bike insurers.......I have fully comp cover, never made a claim in over 30 years or more, and was told when i asked about my gear that had to be cut off me at the scene, oh you are not covered for any motorcycle gear or helmet......approx 2,500 for me to replace .....Feeling very hard done by i have now asked for previous recordings of renewal phone conversations.

I cant remember it being offered as an extra, i thought fully comp covered everything..........if it was never explained to me verbally, do i have a case....or am i just fucked......

» What has your biking extremities been weather wise?
Nov 26, 2018 - 1:17 AM - by R.M
Had a 320km spin today (NCW to Burren return) with a buddy of mine. Started off this [email protected] & it was 1C & didn't pass 8C all day.
Didn't suffer too bad, as had heated grips....wore 2 t-shirts under jocks & 2 pairs of socks. Toes were frozen though & cold got through me in the end.

During the summer I endured 38c in France in full gear (didn't want to ride on t-Shirt) Sweated bucket loads & drank loads of water. Bit of a mind thing the hydration lark. Always I going to hallucinate if I don't keep hydrated, amongst any other worries you may have

» Consummate lazy so and so needs to dispose of used oil..
Nov 25, 2018 - 7:37 PM - by RobbieBeGood
I have 30 odd litres of used oil which I need to dispose of in an ethically and environmentally correct manner.
Contained in their original 3 (or 4 litre promotional) containers which have built up in the lock-up for the last couple of years.
All containers bear the label 'Castrol' (so none of that awful Halfords/generic stuff)
Can anyone please tell me where around the Bray/ Wicklow area I could dispose of them?
Free is preferable with minimal cost coming a distant second.
I contemplated tipping it onto the local childrens play area as the wood chip play-grade ground covering is apparently highly absorbant, but with cc cameras everywhere these days, one can't be too careful.

» Mystery Motorcycle Seat?
Nov 25, 2018 - 3:33 PM - by Jack-The-Nodd
I was doing a bit of early spring cleaning in the attic and came across this which I got in a job lot about 12 years ago, I've no use for it and was gonna fire it up on Fleabay but i'm not sure what's it off.

If I was a guessing man I reckon its from 1980s Honda CG125 or Suzuki GP100/125. Whatever its off it would seem to fit a bike with a rear fairing or hump behind the seat.

Its in really good shape with only a very minor nick in the covering a few mm long in one spot where it folds around the plastic base.

Any ideas what it might be for and what it might be worth?
