Well it turns out counting isn't Bob or Phils strong point, They purchased a chain that's just a wee bit to short so there going to do the run on the old chain and hope for the best.
Funny enough it's only Phils bike that needs a chain.

Maybe we could lay bets on how many k's they'll get into the ride before the chain snaps.

Just got a call from Phil and there getting paranoid about the chain.

Does anyone in Port headland or karatha have a 525 chain they could buy or maybe a few links to add to the short one they bought.
They have a 120 link chain but it was a couple of links too short.

Just put a couple of links out of the old chain would work till they can get new.

An old dude once told me a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Perhaps they should stick under the 120link limit

Perhaps the hobbit needs to take his elixir to calm down
