Abuuser, can you find out if those blokes are on adv rider, cause it may take some work but i reckon we all need to meet , take some pics and drink so beer or wine in my case and get an all time awesome pic

Hi Mike, I know the bloke in moree is on adv rider ,I haven't seen the rest on though.
I got mine from New Zealand as there were none for sale here when I was looking in 2009 ,was great as I got to have a ride around the north island for a couple of days.

May 2014. Flinders Ranges SA. Nice weather that time of the year. Great riding location. Reasonably central.

Begs to be another thread in Oz forum though.
Ok this is a start, nice one farcall.
The main prob is being central to all points of oz . I love the flinders however im happy to except whichever state has the most guys riding a hp2 can decide on the location of the meet. 2nd I think we need a tshirt and cap ;)

Baja Designs SII LED's

I bought these for my Africa Twin and after a bit of thought, fitted these up to the HP2 in a couple of hours. Quite like the placement and are quick to swap over to the AT. Got to use them in a 6 hour night ride recently. Unbelievably good light... I've bought a few cheap LED's off eBay for my 4WD over recent years and they don't come close to the performance of these BD's.

They are http://www.bajadesigns.com/ProductDe...mNumber=480003

G'day Noel
Yes; that was mine for sale, a good thing you missed it :)
Here it is in its element down in Bridgetown with some other Perth Advriders (Dan) about 3 years ago now
great ride, and it was on this ride that I realised how great the bike was.

Cracked rear disk mount

Shane,
I checked my rear disk carrier yesterday and there are 2 cracks in the disk mount holes!!!
Could you post any info that you have on getting the carrier replaced and is the new carrier an upgrade? It would be good to have a price on the replacment part.
Cheers Hendo

Will do Mike.

Based on what I've read on the net, the replacement part is on its 3rd or 4th iteration.

Poll

Hi guys,
if u get a chance please check out the poll for our "australia meeting" as to where to hold the meeting. If you are from overseas and ride a hp2 and would like to come your very welcome.

Aussie hp2 owners if you can contact anyone who owns a hp2 and let them know we are getting together that would be cool.
