Oops

Yes thats right or there abouts. It was a bit late for me here I think.
Increase the length on the calculator as you say and it gets a lot softer.
I don't get that. Perhaps once it is preloaded it would be normal?
I can see with more length that the ride could be softer so to speak.
But I will have to see the pro about it.
Cheers

Well it's off to Phyllis place this coming weekend to finally get mated together. I've been dragging my feet for too long on doing this and finally bit the bullet to get it organised. I've had lots of ideas running through my head over the last 3-4 months on what I have been wanting to do configuration wise but another good chat with the man should straighten things out. I am hoping to have it back before the Dargo Rally to get some ride time and get used to it, but it may not happen. I just have to work around Phil's schedule and am happy to do so. Only one question remains !! I will I be able to handle riding one of my other bikes for a few months ?? I have been really spoiled by the the Super Ten with traction control ABS heated grips comfy seat really good brakes etc.

I'll try and get some photos of the progress on the union for those interested so stay tuned.

Dave and co I'm hoping its gunna be By the way Dave I would love to have a look at your camper outfit you have, it's been giving me some bad ideas along with the setups that everybody else has . Most of the blame has to go towards Neil tho with his great setup. I just think I will have to top Gad's chair, just gotta have something better than his eventually. I may be looking a rendering someones electrical services soon as I have a few ideas I need to run past somebody.

Brendan, what suburb are you in?

Name a time and day and I'll come for a ride and you have measure/photograph the camper to your hearts content.

Dave I'm on the other side of the known universe - Reservoir. I dont get down your way much I will send you a PM with some advance notice of when I am.

3legs do have any plans of the camper you made ?

Neil I hear he is too busy trying to fix all the toys he OWNS !!!! Especially the one that likes to convert back to 2 wheels while going along. To do yours/Gads job.

Sorry Brendan, no plans and I threw the moulds out down at the dump. Just go to TD's place, beat the f@#ker over the head and steal his outfit to make a mould off of.
