James, are you interested in a good look around the Jimna area in the New Year?

You can drive to Jimna itself and cut down on your bitumen time, and we can show you around a bit through a few different areas! You shouldn't have any problems getting a permit from Woodford or Kilcoy.
I'm willing to do anything that gets me out and about. So you name it and ill be there.

Seat suspension is all guesswork at the moment but I am guessing they use a mountain bike rear shock as it should be fairly close to a good spring and damping rate for a seat. Dougs seat also allows for an amount of tilt fore and aft and sideways to allow a para to lean without chafing all the time thats the mount we need to figure out. Hoping I may get some joy from my emails.

Hmmm, maybe a ball joint type setup underneath to give the smooth movement on a strong base. Will be interesting to see what Doug uses.

The Airshocks from Cane Creek, Fox and Rock shok may be the go as you can adjust them easily to get the desired setting you want, and they are pretty damn reliable these days.

How is your back old fella?

Doc says no off road for six months, burst disc had damaged the sciatic nerve in my right leg apparently they recover at a rate of 1mm a day so quite a while until back to full strength at least the back operation has released the pressure on it. Gettin old So it looks like I am the trailer driving bitch for Bumblebee if any rides start and finish at different places.
Be good to get some further rides under his belt for development of his set up just need to know the route in advance for Police Approval.

Blew two of those disc thingies out a few years ago. Well sore.

The bumblebee is looking good, need to get it dirty soon.
