RAD do a great job. They did my Africa Twin Rear Shock with new spring a few months ago. I was happy with the result and very happy with Rodney's communication. He's a good bloke and yes he's old school which I like. I would definitely recommend them!

SW Motech Racks and Rotopax fuel containers

Found out that my SW-MOTECH ALU-RACK



is perfectly holed to suit a RotoPax DLX Pack Mount













And that the SW-MOTECH QUICK-LOCK Luggage Rack Extension



Also fits perfectly on the SW-MOTECH QUICK-LOCK EVO Side Carrier



As a soft bag support

Thumb Cool racks (I've got the B&B one)

If you do got the top mounted rotopax option, put the opening on the opposite side of your pipe to cut down on the risk of fire in case of a leak or crash.

Gave the xt a workout, after recent rain the local 4x4s have been out digging up the tracks so there was plenty of ruts, corrogations, washouts and just the usual rocky bits. Bike handled it all very well (at my pace at least). A little bit of tuning in the suspension and engine management turn it into a pretty competent adventure bike.

B&B Bash plate came tonight. Does anyone have a pic of installation or instructions. I haven't had a look at it yet to see how the attachments all fit, could be quite easy, but just putting it out there..

holiday snaps

Hi All,
Just got back from a trip down the Darling River to Menindee Lakes & Kinchega NP. The Xt's didn't miss a beat in 2700 K's of bull dust, sand, corrugations and fast tar.


75 K's down the road time for a coffee. ( well it is ment ot be a holiday)

First nights accommodation, hot showers, cold beer & a good feed.

Centre of NSW

Not many bends out hear.



They like digging big holes in Cobar.

Louth Pub

Tilpa Pub

Signing the wall at Tilpa Pub.

Bugger.



Sydney North Shore girl gets her hands dirty.

Not many trees out here.

This was the best of the dirt roads but there was a lot of bull dust and sand as well in places.

Camping out.

Kinchega NP.



Darling river.



Menindee Lakes (bloody big lakes)

Heading home.

Slabbing it home in the rain for 8 hours cleaned the bikes so they looked like they hadn't been anywhere.

Cheers
John

Weather

Hi Maddy,
Yes it was a great ride. As to the weather in NSW it would probably be a good idea to get the warm gear. Out west the weather was perfect, about 25 degrees but having good warm dry gear for the 8 hours of steady rain on the trip home saved us. It's been cold in the Blue Mountains, only got to 7 degrees here in Oberon yesterday.
Cheers
John.

The Mrs

Hi Robbo,
Yep the Mrs is a real good sport & sort, we hadn't been home more than two hours and she was asking where we were going next. Got home from work today and the bikes were washed and gear cleaned, including my boots. I know when I've got it good.
Cheers
John

300+ km Jarrahdale to York WA return.
Great ride.
Tried out the new S2 air box intake with restrictor for no fuel mod.
Well worth it. Cant wait to get the fuel mod to open it up even more.
