Yeah, I didn't realise that because the brand isn't listed on their online shop. But I called anyway & they're happy to get me a pair in to try on, no obligation.

I'm always "interested" in a ride, but I'm in the throes of house-moving, so that is taking priority for a short while.
A good loop I did years ago was Canberra-Bombala-Mckillops Bridge-Omeo-Dargo on day one, then back to Canberra via Bright, Tallangata, Corryong, Adaminaby, we did it on an Australia day weekend, a damn fine ride.

Anyone local with a small metal lathe? I need to turn down a socket .5 of a mill?

Will pay in cash or beer.

An alternative is to make a tube spanner out of a bit of appropriate diameter pipe by crushing the sides against the nut in a vice.

Well while we're asking, anyone closer to me than Bergdonks (100km!) with a press that could seat a lower steering head bearing on a Yamaha lower triple clamp? Guess I could use a bit of pipe, block of wood and thumpometer, but pressing it on is preferred.
