About 350 miles.

Not a great average speed but allow time for photos, lunch, walking down to get feet wet in the ocean.

Nice! 500kms. Not bad... I might be slightly jealous...

Funny, same thing happens to me. I get home after a ride, empty my pockets and whoops - I had the darn camera with me the whole time... I went for a 3 day 1300 ride through the Karoo and took 7 pictures. Terrible...

Centre stands

I fitted one to Daisy after I had 'motoed her. It lifted the bike so far that it became unstable. I needed to cut out 40mm on each leg. Fit some bar and re-weld the legs. I've got about 60mm under the rear wheel when on the stand.

I did 420 over the last two days, went to meet some of the guys from the DRBig Info forum.

My chain flew off

Top box half-filled with liquid (leaky drinks)

Got hailed on (twice), and rained on (a lot)

Thanks Ladder, your pics cheered me up

You should try a different Manchester. Why not give ours a go. Lots less rain in summer.



A bit less crowded too, I'd wager. But then there's no football

Freight

Does anybody have a rough estimate of postage (DHL) from Germany to Australia for a muffler only. Package would probably be 600mm long and about 150mm square and would be in the vicinity of 2kg.
Cheers,

guys,
RE: centrstand...
drawing is done, but I asked couple more questions to Ausibatla to make sure it will be relevant not only for my 800 SR43 but for 750 and SR42 800 as well. I will post all today in the evening. I also added some "lever" on drawing which is not there on centrestand, making it too difficult to use. With "lever" sticking at 90 degrees from stand it will be way easier to use.

Hi guys.. Well I went down and seen charlie boorman off and got to meet him which was cool ( will post pics tonight but bike didnt get going as the carbs are flooding with fuel badly. This is why i'm here now.. I've got the tanks off, and everything ready to pull the carbs out but do I need to remove airbox first and remove that way as they seem really firm in there.. I am going to have a go myself at looking into my carbs..Scary but fun. You should have seen the ammount of bikes on a monday morning!! Over 400 bikes but none as cool as The DR BIG!! heaps of BMW's though..

The years are flying...I have been travling on the west cost 15 years ago, all the way up from San Diego to Seattle, unfortunately not on a motorcycle
GREAT PIX!!!
As for Manchester and football- first congratulations for the championship
(although I was with Liverpool...)
And next week I will be with Barcelona

My method is to start by removing the inner guard from in front of the back wheel, then the electrics around the battry, then the battry, then the airbox, don't need to take it right out but pull it back as far as possible.Saves bending the rubber bits too much and stressing them, also gives a bit of room to put things back together easily.
I guess it takes a bit longer this way but makes the job less frustrating for my big sausage fingers.
Others here may have a different method, which I'd bee keen to hear/read
