Spent the afternoon changing out the dirty old fork oil, I went from 10w to 15w and a quick ride shows some promise with less dive without being harsh over bumps, still pretty soft though.
I look forward to seeing how well the forks work tomorrow.

Off for an evening ride with Taz now

Hahaha, and you guys should be envious, too. It was as stunner of a day.

Part of my watch and my license plate decided to stay somewhere up there. The track was a bit rattly.

We were up the summit eating lunch then

It was a cracker of a day, after we all went our separate ways home I headed home around Port Underwood
Better than heading straight home along the SH1

I'll put up a couple of pics, but I am too lazy to do much writing. My phone camera, was a bit overpowered by the brightness of the day, but maybe the other guys will have better ones.



I am not sure what they were looking at, since we already were at over 1600metres.

























The end



Ok, that was more than a couple, but I was really impressed with the scenery.

Can sort you a deal on a Casio or Royal London if you need a replacement man
