I got some sad news last week a mates mum passed away, I missed the funeral so he has asked me up to his property near Dalesford next week for a catch up.
I'm planning to take the long way, mostly by tar, I'm a bit excited I have never done an overnight trip before, those of you with young kids will understand.
After a good cleaning session it's off with the dirt shoes
...and on with these.
I recon tyre choice for the Melbourne area in winter is difficult. I tried using Dunlop 606's but I found I wasnt confident in the miles of twistys we have out to the east and when you get into the bush its mostly snotty clay and they clag up. So I tyre swap between the MotoX and road tyres, its a pain... In the perfect world I would have a V-Strom as well.
It will be the first time I load the WR up with gear, so out with the ocky straps ( I am open to suggestions here) I have seen posts with WR's loaded to buggery, i'm wondering how they handle like that?
So over tyre changing, it's like a gym workout, takes me about 1hr and half for nuts off to nuts on including a counter sprocket change from 12 to 13 for road (mmmm where's that V-Strom)
Ahh must be beer o clock, tools down.
