It came with a camping caravan (trailer) that I inherited from my parents.
I think the model is a crapper 1000
Deposits removed by achieving red line in 5th, and pulling shute. Ideally after passing several sportsbikes.
Cost: zip, diddly, nada.

It has a quick release mechanism so that deposits can be re-deposited in a nearby bush similar to the bush nearby.

Quit putting gas in your beer?

OK, crapper on a bike. Two questions arise in the mind:

1). Why is it facing backwards? I would think it would be easier to get on the bike, drop 'em and then scoot back for the perfect throne seat. But it needs to open to the rear, not the front.

2) What's under it? How did you handle the seat pan with the solo seat and the rear subframe? This requires investigation. I find the pizza pan option, the worlds largest goldfish pond, you putting gas in your beer, more worlds largest goldfish pond, The Bike With No Sidestand. (or center stand, interesting option), Worlds largest goldfish pond under construction, Joy of your life, having a personal tech day in the middle of a camp out, Fish in the worlds largest goldfish pond, Fishin' glory (we know where you caught them and that you staged the shot), and this:



No lines on the glass.

I wondered how you got them off so I just asked. never did find NFO on the seat pan or subframe and I got tired of looking at the most excellent goldfish pond (really, very nicely done!)

Aha! my photobucket list!

1, There are no lines on the glass because there is no glass. It's plastic. Those GS riders will drag their feet in the gravel and do all sorts of things to try and stop me passing. I got tired of broken headlight glasses.

I field tested the crapper facing the other way. Roared past a road train and the vacuum lifted the lid and covered me in.....

That's not gas in the beer, it's beer in the bike!

The crapper fits snuggly behind the solo seat. No further mods required.
After fitting the solo seat, I just had to come up with some 'outside the square' ideas.

Glad you like my swimming pools. With fish.

Now where did I leave that link to my photobucket account.............

That one. looked like it was holding up some trees here and there too.


Looks like the area has been prepped for a repair. How did you do that in the field?

My brother's RS, insufficient care when crossing a creek on the way to the alpine Rally here in Aus and a rock got it!
We fixed it with JB weld and my dessert spoon. (after cutting the handle off 'course)
We were lucky to borrow some JB from a fellow rallyer but it was the 'slow cure' so the old RS spent a little time around the camp fire warming its belly.

My brother is a real good bloke. He even fixed my spoon and gave it back to me.

I meant, how did you get it all nice and clean and ready for the JB weld? I carry the stuff but maybe not the best equipment to prepare an area---get it really clean so the JB weld will stick.

Prepped with a stainless steel pot scourer and fuel. Easy.
The repair wept a little, but he easily made it about 400 k home.
'JB quick' is the one to have, with a 4-5 minute set time. I used to always carry that when trail riding and repaired holed engine cases on more than a couple of occasions.

Here are the latest pictures of mine, which actually runs now!
