» Tyre Wear
Jun 08, 2020 - 9:57 AM - by Big H
Noticed some scalloping on my rear tyre - is this an indication that the shock is past it's best (more specifically the rebound damping) or is it just a normal wear pattern ?

While bobbling/wear is normal on the egde of a soft compound tyre, this is a hard compound sport/touring Continental Conti-Motion on a Bandit 12....

» Emailed Co. Co re: Poor road surface
Jun 07, 2020 - 8:13 PM - by R.M
A section of road near me has been repaired recently, with the usual loose chips left on top. Banged off an email earlier (see below)

Lets see what if any response I get.

"Hi,

Can you please forward this complaint to the correct department?

A section of the R521 between Ardagh & Shanagolden has recently been resurfaced.

A top layer of loose chippings has been left on the road, and as a motorcyclist, this is a hazardous way to leave a surface. The 4 wheeled traffic has pushed all the loose chippings towards the middle of each land, and this is the part of the road that we motorcyclist use.

It's downright madness & dangerous.
Yes, there is signage advising loose chippings, but why... [Read More]

» Paying VRT on a bike that has been stored for years
Jun 07, 2020 - 6:51 AM - by dub 24
Howya folks

Looking for some advice I'm thinking of buying a bike that was shipped from the states over 10 years ago but never had the vrt paid and it's still on american plates. The chap selling it has the american logbook and that's all no import paperwork etc. Does anybody know what the story is with the vrt crowd in this situation . The bike is a 1986 if that has any relevance.
Cheers

» Bike collection
Jun 07, 2020 - 1:23 AM - by Christopher Livingstone Eubanks
Go on japcati, show us your collection. I think you have 20+ bikes? Or tell us your job. You must be earning way above 100k. You do have a generic CEO name and face so I have an idea. Stereotypes exist for a reason.

» Letter to public bodies on the benefits of motorcycles
Jun 06, 2020 - 7:55 PM - by sprockets
Hi all,
Ok so there seems to be a good bit of chat going on about doing something positive for motorcycling.
Let's face it, Covid-19 is going to be around for quite some time, and motorcyclists can use this to our advantage.

Every one reading this can take action as an individual simply by sending an email or letter to your local politician, both local government & national.

So step one is to put together a template that we can use to create the letter/email.

It's interesting that I couldn't find much about motorcycles on Irish site. It's like we don't exist. No surprise there.

Here are some ideas I have.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I wish to bring to your attention how the use of motorcycles... [Read More]
