Should I book a ferry? I'll be crossing around 6pm on the 16th.

Oh, and I had a look for a fire extinguisher. Couldn't find anything light. I used to have an aerosol type that was pretty light, but couldn't find anything like it.

I found these on trade me, they would be perfect. If anyone asked, I could truthfully reply, yes I do, I even have two.



I just found this at cycletreads, that should be good enough.

Those look a bit heavy to me but nice mounting clips. I'm just going to take a can of CRC. That way I can lube the chain & if there's a fire it should be able to put it out - it's wet.

That is the stupidist thing I have ever heard.

You don't have a chain.

He has at least one :-). But it's easier to lube that with the on-board oil supply.

If there is a fire, I'll just roll in it, isn't that what you are supposed to do?

Had mine since round about the second Dusty when it was up out of Nelson (actually got it for the Capital Coast Adventure and then carried on DB1Ks as well) and it is a 300gm size, looks a lot like that. Just pressed the test spot and it's still hard so still good to go according to the label.

Crossing fingers and toes

All is looking good for me attending the Dusty Butt.

Have just spent the best part of a weekend at Clint and Rosies home giving miss Heidie some much needed TLC, my x-mass presents from Moto Bins arrived Friday, Santa did well considering that I only ordered them about 14 days ago!

All is ready to go, had a great shake down run this afternoon from Clint's to the Grand hotel in Wanganui.
Here to Friday.

After last week riding around the Hawkes Bay area, 2500kms 60+% gravel, on what I call looe ball bearing gravel, the Motu was a breeze, and having a couple of liedowns (at very low speed) and I did have the front wash out a few times( tightens up the sphinchter(sp?) real quick, I would like to fit a Conti TKC 80 for the front for more rolloy polly gravel/bluestone. Who stocks them and where? Not cocerned re saving a few dollars. My new Metzler Tourance front is great, wore out the 1st one in 5 weeks, and I can push that hard on tar and smooth dirt, but it is a little bit unnerving when it wants to twitch side to side.

The rear is holding up well. The bike tyre that is! Shinlinko(sp). At a $140 fitted It is good value.

I had bought one for the CCA a few years back, I think it's on a trail somewhere.......(no there wasn't a fire).

I went into Cycletreads the Monday after you'd been there and had a set fitted. I really love them on the R80, if only they were a bit cheaper.

If that was the last one, it might be the free one that I scored out Makairo way on the south coast...

I bought this from Supercheap for $31. If you find it on the trail, it's mine and I expect it back along with the other stuff in my tail-bag.



It's still not as small as it could be, but then, I have a 24 litre tank and it it's not for putting out cigarettes.

Just confirmed with Ryan and sent the dues.
Managed to get a room at the Mt Dobson motel on Friday and Sunday, with the owner kindly allowing me to store my travelling gear over the weekend, and got the last room in Alexandra at the Centennial motel for Saturday night

That's good news. I just realized that I'll need a room on Sunday as well. Better have a quick look.

I thought you were sharing with me Friday and Sunday. Mind you after the Friday night snorefest I wouldn't blame you for not wanting to share with me again.

Oh, if I can do that, that would be great. I Know I'll be absolutely stuffed on Sunday, I could probably just lean against a tree somewhere.
