We all like Bling.

This stuff is so much cheaper than in OZ.
Well not on an adventure but close.

The wolfman racks match the wolfmam paniers really well.
Here pics as per request.

Has nice "Metal" clips for tightening up the straps.

Very deep with a plastic base.

Has good steel clips /buckles to enable quick release.

Overall very good quality product thats got just a bit ,ore room than the expedition series.

Good rear plastic / vinyl protection to he stop nag rub.

Picture on the bike.


Comes with good quality water proof roll up bags with clips.

You haven't watched Sean-0's videos then?

Sean-0 only gets motion sickness falling out of iron bark trees.

Or running around in circles with his arse on fire.

Enjoying the read, thanks Hodgo.

How many km have you got on your SE? (got a bit over 41,000 on mine now)

Re the slave cylinder... when I swapped from the SE to the 525 in Laos, the one on the 525 went out on me. I used baby oil... but I had to ride about 50 km before it self-bled and started working. Topped it off every day after that and no worries.

Those orange trousers of yours are going to fade to yellow pretty quick if you keep wearing them

That's just the weekend run about, no way in hell I would let him stay in the house.

The interior can be hosed down, perfect for cleaning up after the likes of Hodgo....

Got just under 50K on mine at the moment. So a few teething problems are to be expected.

The recluse clutch slave cylinder seems to be working very well.

They make a low version I may give it a try. My current seat leaves more to be desired.

I don't think you'll have enough chemicals or water for that exercise

You'll fit right in down under

I was trying to be nice but I realize I am going to have to use fire to set it right. Too bad I liked that rig....

Shit I have to fumigate the guest room too, damn this is getting expensive

Well. Camped at Crowley lake. Few good stiff breezes tonight & temp has dropped down to 24degC from about 34 at 6pm. Still fairly light outside.

Note to self camp further away from Mexicanz. Nice people but only interested I. Their immediate surroundings.

Good run up highway 395 stunning views. Will post more pictures when I get wifi again.
