They have thoroughly x-rayed me and found me fit to travel.
Off-topic but just to show what damage a motorbike impact can do...
The front axis of the Corsa was broken, the whole engine block pushed 10 cm towards the driver....
The bike... well. Not much left. Basically everything damaged and broken, multiple holes in the engine and tank, frame bent, both rims irreversibly damaged. I had put 93.000 km on the clock. Sold a few parts and that was that... :/
Me - got incredibly lucky. I still feel the knee sometimes, 10 years later but I didn't break a single bone. Just the psyche.
Maybe our guardian angels are related
Surprisingly, my twin didn't get a leak of fuel or cooling water and started without any problems.
Holy sheet! That sucks, but glad you came out undamaged.
Scouting TET France, section 1 for a day out (without luggage) tomorrow.
Fantastic trails, fantastic scenery!! Not easy, though...Lots of big rocks in the trail, narrow lanes, ruts. We'll see how Uhura likes it.
Glad your doing okay peter. It won’t be long before your back on the road. Be safe
Thanks Thom !
Heyo! Used to have an Africa Twin 750 myself, I ride a 950 Adventure now but damn do I miss the 'ol 750 quite a bit. It was an absolutely fun motorcycle and I'd love to find one again one day and add it to the stable with the 950! The 750 remains my favorite Honda ever and imo better than the new ATs (not a huge fan of those Parallel Twins) But in any case, I wanna follow this thread and just appreciate the beautiful ATs here! But here's an pic of my AT along with a friend
Looking out my new bike barn.
Glad to hear you are ok, that really sucks!
If you need parts for RD03 just le me know, I have many stock parts sitting around
Many thanks, Norman.
Right now, I need to take it down a gear. But as soon as I'm fully operational again and need spare parts, I'll be happy to come back to your friendly offer
Hi Fellow AT riders,
Are the Tank Decals still available ? Looking for 1995 S model decals for Fuel Tank.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thinking I need a fuel pump, bike started acting like it was running out of fuel, pulled the clutch in and kept it running a few seconds by revving it up, let the clutch out and she died. Would not restart.
I do not hear any sound from it or feel any vibration at all when turning the engine over. When I got the bike a few months back, the fuel pump would do some clicking when turning the ignition on, haven't heard that recently. Took the output line off and while cranking, got nothing, there is fuel reaching it from the tank. So, I need fuel pump?
I've read the fuel pump is an issue on these, any suggestions as to a better pump that will plug/play? 1991 XRV750.
No Suggestions other than to contact Mr Bean for his modified apperture that changes the mechanical points in the pump to "Solid State"
I switched from a mechanical Mikuni that would not keep up in high altitude/ high revs to a Facet Posi Flo 60300 ( the lowest pressure one and closest to oem). Bike is fueling properly but I get a tripmaster and headlight flicker. Pump is pulling 1.6 A inseated of 1.0 A as oem but still dont think thats the issue. Another thing i noticed is that the pump gets really hot down there. Hope it lasts long lol.
Today I drove 200 km to the Desna River
Just back from a British Columbia tour of the Kootenays and Okanagon visiting friends. Now with over 100K kms the old Queen
is still pulling strong. Very impressed with the Mitas E-07 tires. They hold up well even on the hot tarmac with slow tread wear.
It is with immense sadness that we learned the passing of G-funk.Riding his RD04, he singlehandedly organized NAATS 2010 which gathered most of our beloved US ATs into a week long adventure in his Oregon backyard.
For the nostalgic, check out the rally Link, wonderfully narrated by E-Bum:
so long Greg, ....yes the next ride will be for Jim and Greg...
We really should plan the “next” ride.
Won’t be able to call it NAATS though (unless we want all those rich kids with new CRFs to show up)
NAXRVS......doesn’t quite roll off the tongue the same way
Maybe the “Rowley/O’Brien Memorial XRV Gathering”
Anyways, once the Wuhan bug dies off, we should make some plans
