Couldn't agree more with Morro.

I carry a Cpap machine, a Transend 240/12V unit, best thing ever, cost about $1250 for the package, have had several units, this is the best one by far, airline friendly, lithium battery lasts 16 hours, never leave home without it.

The Northern Territory deserves a big thank you for going against the current bullshit that is being pushed down our throats, and extracting our hard earn, all in the mantra that speed kills, even a couple of k's over the posted limit is akin to murder.

The NT government have acknowledged that removing the unlimited speed limits on the open roads and imposing 130 and 110kph limits has done nothing to reduce the road toll.

They have now gone back to the unlimited speed, initially on the Stuart hwy north of Alice Springs to between Ti-Tree and Barrow Creek, and the next section will be to Wauchope



Interestingly when Mal and I crossed over from the 130kph limit to the new unrestricted speed, we did not up our touring speed of 110kph, mainly because we had a strong cross head wind, and upping the speed meant a big increase in fuel consumption.

With little or no wind conditions, I found 120/130 was the most comfortable, with reasonable efficient fuel consumption.

And very few vehicles chose to open up, it seemed that only the high speeding ones that had NT government plates,(did not have to pay for the fuel)

I was curious and so did a test.

Into the wind I sat on 80kph (GPS indicated) and my on board fuel computer indicated 4.5lts per hundred k's. Then up to 100kph, 5.5 lph, at 120kph, 6.5lph, at 140kph, 7.8 lph, at 160kph it was really using the fuel 10.0lph

I then turned around and with a tail wind repeated the steps.
At 80kph, 3.5lpk, 100kph, 4.5lpk, 120kph, 5.5lpk, at 140kph, 6.5lph, and at 160kph, 8.0 lph.

And another consideration is the vast areas of unfenced wandering stock.

Do you really think that the other states will follow? even to a 130kph limit? Or even acknowledge that it is not travelling fast that is dangerous, as the NT says, "drive to the conditions".

Nope, there goes their prized cash cow, and what will the police do? eat more doughnuts?

Electric Hoodies and Lollypop Ladies

Back to off topic ^^^^^^^ Sheesh.

Spoke to a Lollypop lady at the front of the que. Discussing the cold as you do in CBR. She said she was wearing an elecric hoodie and she bought it from the workwear shop. I went to the fastners place today and they were selling them. They have a neat battery pack 6 hours between charges they say.

A tax deductable winter collection wardrobe from your local workwear shop accessories include M12 heated jacket 12v DC plug adaptor.
They been selling the Overcoat here for the past for years Davo, but this is the first Ive seen of the skivvy or jacket.

As with any battery operated tool, you really really need that second battery for back-up.

I reckon one of these skivvy jacket things under your Aldi jacket a spare battery and you are ready to head into the prevailing westerly.

The beauty is you are not plugged into the bike. I got the flu at the moment and went shopping with my cosy electric vest on.

I reckon you're right about the skivvy under. The Milwaukee stuff here is sold by electrical contractor sales Lawrence & Hanson, so I'll try and dig out their cattle dog.
Just got over the flu myself but scored 7 night shifts in a row at beautiful downtown Port Pirie and now I have a cold. A skivvy would of been perfect under overalls.

I'm surprised Aldi don't have this stuff.

Reckon it would be easy to find that second spare battery at the Markets on Sunday or a garage sale.

I wore one of these on the border run, fantastic. When riding, I would rather be plugged into the bike with the controller out of the jacket as conditions change and it would be a real pain if I had to stop and adjust the temperature.

Jacket is very light and when you tuck the leads in you can wear it off the bike as a windbreaker. I didn't get a battery.

Current draw is low (don't know exactly how much) and there's no way you could have it on max for more than a few seconds anyway. I wore it under a BMW Rally2 jacket (not a warm jacket at the best of times) with goretex liner fitted and only went as high as medium. I had a couple of layers of thin thermals against my skin.
