My pick however would be a 2000 model 2WD Rollux with the 2.7L petrol motor, running on gas. I've driven one around town and on the highway, they average 8km/L city, 9km/L highway ON THE GAS, which is really cheap (the one I drove had a gas-ring LPG conversion into the intake pipe before the throttle body). On petrol they get 10km/L and 12.5km/L. Tough as shit, but those 2WD models don't drive like a billycart. Plenty of balls coz they weigh less than 1200kg. Loading height less than 600mm to get the bikes up easy. Bench or buckets, A/C, P/S, it's all good.

+1, couldn't agree more, shout ya beer MODNROD next time I see ya!
Cheers
Baza

Depending on budget the new EcoLPI ones are awesome though the old E gas is still pretty good.

Couldn't agree more.

An early-mid 2000s falcon ute would meet your criteria.

2WD, bench seat, cheap to buy, cheap to run (especially on gas), parts cheap & plentiful, lots of power, long tray. Remember if you get a tray back it will be that much higher to run your bike up on, so a styleside might be easier to load & unload.

If you have a business, and you get a one tonne model you can claim the entire cost of the ute & running it back on your tax without keeping a logbook

Anyway, that's my 2c

He left MotoGP because he didn't like where the sport was headed and didn't want to race on production based machinery.

Talking recently about the Atlantic Way with one of my mates on that ride, we both commented that the best time to see that road would be in stormy weather like that in the video. It was a bit hard for us to get too excited about the Atlantic Way as we'd just spent a few days riding through some spectacular country full of mountains, fjords and winding roads.

Norway is packed with spectacular roads and its about 2,500 km long!

That spot was about the only place, other than in the Lofoten Islands much further north, that we actually rode along any of the Atlantic coastline.



Sorry for being on topic...

Pretty sure I heard a specific Greenwich Mean Time mentioned, which equated to 21?? hours yesterday. Still, after all those years, what's a few hours between friends!
