Edgecliff had 1-2? left - You call call headoffice and ask whom has stock left. I just could not refuse at that price - a greater power made the decision!

The tank bag is a ripper. I bought one just for the hell of it. All I need is a bike to fit it too and I'll be laughing. The BMW's have the same brand bag, but slightly smaller and labelled as BEE and are absolutely shit-hot too!

They came from e........b............a............y.............. .!!

Not as good as an Airhawk. And not as good as having Gel on the seat pan.

But - they do make those long hauls a hell of a lot less painful. I suspect the gel doesn't do as much as the tight fit and no seams ....

Not bad at all Al

Fair bit of traffic calming in the hood. Painters dropping pots off the back of utes and I noticed you infringed the road traffic rules of NSW on at least one occasion

Aldi ADV Bike Cleaner!

Really!

Well sort of... was wandering around in Aldi a few weeks ago and came across their Citrus Orange Cleaner in a spray bottle.

Tried it on the bike. Just spray it all over the bike and hose off. Simply amazing stuff. Takes bugs off the windscreen, crap off the rims. Just magic and under $2 a bottle. I get 2 washes per bottle.

In the old days.. when I were a lad.. I used to spray the Honda with Nifti and do the same thing.

Give it a try.. I have 5 bottles in the bike shed.

In fact going out to clean the bike later on today. And when its clean, I spray the engine case with RP7... dust sticks to it and then when I get home from the next ride the Aldi orange stuff takes it all off.

Cheers

Thanks for the heads-up.

I use the citrus stuff from Woolies, but they charge a lot more than Aldi (bless their souls!).

Has anyone tried the compression suits and if so how do they go as far as body temp is concerned especially during single trail stuff? For $17 you wouldn't be upset if you bought them and they didn't work out but you would be upset if you overheated 10minutes into a ride and had to strip off completely

What kind of shorts would these be, German leather lederhosen for the BMW rider maybe?
