Re: Will these fit an R75?

Hi
they dont look like Airlhead panniers to me. Mine all have a straight side (rather than the V shape) to the inset part,

Good guide price though

Re: Advice for a returning biker...

Hi welcome, where are you based? When can you play out? If you put the bike and your location in your profile or sig you will get local information shared with you. Are you thinking of taking a "return to biking" refresher? Your local IAM can usually help for a modest fee. Cant help on the boots I'm...

Re: MORE UPGRADES TO MY R1150r

Hi Basher how about Motorworks, Bins or Sherlocks? I always think it odd that you have to be a member to buy on the GSers site. Maybe paid up members for the first week and then anyone, cos after all you want to help members sell it. BTW I perfectly understand the logic of not being able to use the ...

Hi +1 with Rob says Since Phil's passing the club has been paying for the forum since we dont seem to have a way I can think of to accept donations.

Re: R80 Tubeless valve

Hi
I had the problem of air leaking around the valve seal on a mono, it turned out to be a chip in the rim where a po had punched the valve out from the outside with a tool. I was patched for me with "Devcon? sp? a two pack "Epoxy"?

Not sure which would be the better valve

Re: Pannier Latches - request

Hi
I solved the "Which Key" problem with a blob of nail varnish, but the problem I have not bottomed is why one lock can be opened with multiple DIFFERENT keys. As far as I can tell none of the wafers in it have not been removed
