Tyre Wrangling

Man, how I hate it...wrestling Adv tyres on and off is a serious wrestle when done in my shed... Anyway, got a wee ride coming up next months and the bike also needs a WOF so today was the day to finally put on that front E-07 that has been in my shed for over a year and also to chuck one of the new E-07+'s on the rear. Here's a couple of pictures to try and show what a new E-07 front looks [Author: Andrew Thomson]

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 47: Painted Rock Petroglyph Campground, Day 2

Decided to hang out another day at the campground after all.  It promised to be a sunny and warm day with some clouds.Dawn came and while started clear, a low layer of fog moved through the valley as I waited for the sun to show itself.  It made for some nice lighting in spite of the lack of clouds overhead: As the fog grew thicker, it made the nearby hills and distant peaks appear to be afloat on clouds.  Oatman Mountain  The fog got higher and partially blocked the sun as it finally...

Blame China: Jaguar Land Rover Layoffs Won’t Be Exclusive to Europe

On Thursday, Jaguar Land Rover was reported to be in the midst of a plan that would eventually lay off roughly 10 percent of its UK workforce — roughly 4,500 employees.

The Honda XRV750 Africa Twin is almost thirty years old, and fast approaching legend status. So most Honda fanatics will probably baulk at the thought of customizing one. Luis Correia and his crew at Maria Motorcycles weren’t keen to cut into their client’s 1992 Africa Twin either. But it wasn’t just down to reverence for the adventure sports icon. “We accepted reluctantly,” Luis explains, “because a bike like this is not a walk in the park to make. There are lots of limitations when deal...

2020 Ford Explorer: History Repeats Itself

The 2020 Ford Explorer arrives as Americans demand more and more SUVS. Ford analyzed consumer feedback and designed the 2020 Explorer accordingly.  New, more powerful engines compliment a host of convenience and safety tech. In March of 1990, minivans broke into a cold sweat when the 1991 Ford Explorer moved into the neighborhood. While the two-door Explorer “Sport” helped the single crowd pursue all things 90s, the four-door became a viable option for families. Contrasting the minivan, the Ex...
