You just wait until you don't make it cleanly through a gate and then see the name we can come up with for ya.

Is it a British club run or swap meet or something similar? Lots of photos please if you do head there. I might head to Bills and fondle the merchandise. I need some new fork gaiters and hand grips for the beast, if they're included in the sale.

tyres......................................

ok, so i finally decided on the Hiedenau K60 's.... only to find out there were none available.....

So today i settled on the TKC 80's.. (not much choice really...??) only to find out the 'local' tyre joint is wanting to charge me about 15% more than what BMW quoted me to suppy/fit whan i bought the bike 4 weeks ago...wtf??


so, in ADL... wheres the cheapest place for TKC's??????????

(oh, also got me lady a present....photos soon )

Hey GoneAgain. No idea re the TKC's - did you try Martin or Richard at GC's? Was thinking about new shoes for my ride but decided I'll run the old ones down first. Have got a shed load of Desert rears, but they're all 18"s. What size tyres were you after? I was considering the Hiede's or the Banglop 908's if I can find a 17"er.

lookin for 90/90/21 and 150/70/17......

the Heidi importer (bruce collins, melb) doesnt have any or know when they'll send more..

and the TKC price was from GC's (after a discount)

btw..just went to the dunlop site... how shit is that... doesnt even list 908's, and their search doesnt find stuff that is on the page you search from

(guess who's grumpy!)

might be cawfee time..........................................

From my very small knowledge base:

The 150 TKCs are nearly $100 more than the 140.

Aaron (1WD) got a pair of TKCs from Road & Race (Churchill Road) a couple of weeks ago at a very good price, but has found the rear to be wearing VERY quickly.

The 908RR are unavailable in Australia at the moment.

There, my knowledge is now exhausted.

heres a couple pics from Angaston Vincent bikes today, must have got there a bit early as there wasn't much happening and I only hung around long enough to eat a pie
I did notice the collingrove hill climb was on today but didn't go there either
did have some fun when some scallywags on dirt bikes came along between eden vally and Springton road doing wheelies all the way, wonder if it was anyone from here??

So it was you at South Para on the KTM, dropped in on the back home to see it the water had reached the overflow.

I was on a blue & white Triumph, forgot to take my camera just in case so thanks for the photos.
