G'day fellas

Got home alright. Thanks for helping out a Truro. I think I know what went wrong. Not sure but I reckon the bottom mounts moved down which moved the bottom of the bike out hence causing the lean in. Also I think one of the threads has bent.

Have taken the front shocks off and will send them to Hoeys to get rebuilt tomorrow.

Was a great days ride but was I stuffed when I got home. I'm sore today. Used muscles I haven't use for a while.

Kym, can you PM me with your front tyre details please.

Cheers

I watched that from behind & was laughing my head off.

Thanks for the ride MB there were some ripper side roads or tracks like the one that claimed Trev's rear tyre..

I still can't believe you punt that TDM so quick on dirt.

That's what I get for laughing out loud as I came up alongside you, you must have heard me and got out the way....bugga.

Anyway, don't worry about it, you won't have to look over your shoulder each time were out there - trust me

I had a great day out there yesterday and I've rung the guys at GC's and they're going to put another HD tube in for me tomorrow and reverse the tyre to sharpen up the approach lugs...might get some more kms out of it. The bloody thing popped into place on the way home and looks good, but I'm not taking a chance with that standard tube I stuck in there.

If you look closely you can see me working on the sidecar. this is VERY unusual for me to work at anytime but it did get me to tick of one item on my bucket list . work on a BMW sidecar on the side of a road. An other great ride with some nice peoplethanks to all involved. particularly like riding the track that Trev got the flat

Trev, can you get a UHD rear tube in a 17 inch, might be a better move for the rear vs. just a HD.

I think the real problem was that the outfit was made in the owner's likeness

You can Dave, sometimes pretty hard to get, but you can get them. The problem with them is the difficulty getting them in and out of the rim on the side of the road. I've done one before and it caused me all sorts of hell. At the end of the day, the nail would have deflated a UHD too, and I've had that happen to me. They are really good for low pressure single track stuff to avoid pinches - really the HD are more than suitable for what we do.

Like Kipo says, it's the Karma. My turn, again!

I think a caption contest is needed here



Eventually a great day was had by all ............ or most anyway.

Thanks for the 471kms (for me) of fantastic company yet again.

Feel free to add your version of events guys.
Hey Trev, i was standing behind you when you were doing the tyre change and I thought you were a drug dealer 'cause there was about 20 kilos of crack hanging out of you pants!! - (Oh yeah thanks for the info on the Flinders, it looks like you can count me in) Rusty

I guess that would account for me snorting so much towards the end of the tube change!!

Good to hear you might make it up there. It's only three weeks away. If you're camping then just turn up, if you're thinking about the dorm then I'd consider booking with me so as to guarantee a bed (don't forget that I'll be picking up gear for guys from MB's place if they're riding up).

MB has some fantastic Gorge rides up there and there's some lengthy semi-enduro stuff too.

cheers

Well done, Kym. Your rides are always a pleasure. Thanks for the opportunity to join in once again. Love the photos, especially the one Sol's highlighted.
It was great to meet plenty of new faces, catch up with familiar names and enjoy another relaxed, entertaining ride with local inmates. and already looking forward to the next, Richard (on the blue Super Tenere).
