Maybe it's an indication of their federal election voting preference

I think the beaks may have parted company from the bikes due to user error

A distinct possibility Joe mine went on leave too on the way to the Kimberley. I am thinking it is related to the use of the Safari tank. Plus it stops them looking like a BMW.

Or maybe forward thinking.......makes it easier to take the tank off to check/replace the airfilter

Doesn't make any difference to taking tank off, that's only a 3 minute job anyway.

I think one of those beaks is buried in a sand dune in Israelite Bay!

These bikes must be getting recognisable. The operator of Angorichina Village emailed me to say that he'd just filled them up with fuel at 1230 (SA time). Boys seemed to be going okay.
