Yeah of course! I couldn't go anything else.... I've got a KTM sticker on the back of my car, how could I possibly remove it for something else!!

In all seriousness, it'll be more convenient (read: keep the missus happy) if I put the bike on a trailer and take the family with me when I go riding/camping... So I guess all is not lost.

Re fuel bladders, I'm not going to the Gold Coast in April as first thought as I have an appointment on North Tce 15/4/13 on the same day.

That being the case, we will be stuck with the shipping costs of $15 each for them and with GST that will make them $140 each. Are we still interested, shall we piggy back the ADV group buy, or try to get to 11 and do our own thing?

For those thinking about the Sunday ride out of Gawler to Truro, the temp will get to 37 later in the day. Last week, we were back in Gawler by midday after the same time start of 0800 at the BP. It should be okay.

It's on again - one of the best motorcycle racing events in SA - the Collingrove Hillclimb, from 9am Sunday 17th March, 2013. More details here. $10 for adult spectator entry. Anyone keen to catch up? It's a great day out with all classes, including vintage, classic, race, motard, sidecars and quads competing.

I'm thinking Tuesday to Thursday with flexibility of planning to suit the majority. Post up now or miss out.
I'm in. Every second week I'm usually free. Monday to Wednesdays usually works for me. Start and finish my shifts on Thursday.

little bit of welding ...

whacked a secondhand pipe on the DR and the middle tab needs tweaking. It doesn't quite line up and is far enough out that a simple hole enlarge ain't gonna work ...
any recommendations for someone up Elizabeth way (I'm at DSTO - near Edinburgh air base) I could go and see over lunch?

I can cut the existing tab off and grind the pipe smooth but I'd like to talk first so I make sure I don't do nuffink dumb!

cheers,
Slap
