Just thought youd like to know where all our postie's end up when they die. It's not to the big Post Depot in the sky, but to NZ! Can't remeber exactly where this was but it was the south island.
RIP CT110

Not at all surprised. There's been a real rise in interest in these things over the past year or so.
Still tonnes appearing at Pickles auctions too.

Hi!

First post for me - might as well own up to being a Postie fan straight away!

This is my 2004 in sunny Tassie (3 degrees this morning! Cold fingers...)

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2072/...f92a42f8_b.jpg


Looking forward to my stay here and hopefully a long life of riding!

Cheers

For real.The ag ones were about $4000 no compliance.I wonder if they'll be a x model with the heavy duty bits or a light weight.Suppose aus post won't need as many now electric tricycles and prams are coming in.

Is there a difference between the engine bars on the old points style ignition bikes as apposed to the cdi type newer ones?

Does the cdi bit stick out further than the points cover thingy?

I just went to fit up my engine bars (the bit that the crash bars attach to) to my ct and it is hitting the cdi cover and won't fit.

I think the engine bars were from a early model but I'm not sure.

They could just be bent...

Hi Joe, thanks for the welcome :-)

I'm using these tyres: http://store.onetenmotorcycles.com.a...b_category=113

The 2.75 is on the front for a bit of extra guard clearance and the 3.00 is on the rear. The knobs increase rolling resistance and the back end feels a little more 'wandery' but the extra traction on dirt is worth it. Bear in mind that I'm a learner rider so this might all be blindingly obvious to you.

One Ten should be pretty close by for you. Give Joe a yell - he's looked after me well whenever I've had an issue.

Hi to all. Have been using the same Cenew tyres myself. More than happy.
