Hope you get to the MotoGP- it will be the 55" screen again for me..;-)
Heya Mark

Sorry for my poor reply actually, we had our gear sent to Alaska, the Klim site has an excellent fitting chart which I believe is very accurate as my gear is spot on.

Suggest you get your lovely lady to measure you up (maybe a microscope for some parts ) and see check out against the size charts to see how it looks.

GP was awful as usually , wifi here so slow it almost goes backwards so next week or so once we are out of the desert will update all.

Cheers bro

I know a couple of key guys on the other side of the fence at the GP. Could be they'll have access to a suspension lab. Say if you think it's worth a try. You'll have to wipe the sh.. off it first mind. .
Heya mate

Yeap enjoying it over here, plenty of good wine etc.

No worries re the shock and timing wise we missed the boat with your message, will see how it unfolds, at worst we can shove a block of wood in there

You back in Falklands again?

All else going well, Maya fit and well, going desert for a few days now.

They spent the weekend with the team while I was sat alone at the tribune but on Sunday we switched tickets with Claudio and I was allowed to enter into motorcycle heaven...Honda Italy team.

Sorry for the hijack but I NEED to post these pics! haha
Lucky bastard? Yes I am
Heya Jaime

Lucky bastido

How cool is that getting in there ....well done you

We sat it out at the final curve so some nice action and great feel the sounds ... made my skin crawl and my eyes water, been about 4 years since my last GP and I had forgotten how fast these boys go

Some serious talent out there eh, oh to be young and rubbery again

Not sure if Martyn contacted you, he's not going to the MotoGp and I don't know anyone who will go there so I'm not sure what I can do to send you the shock. Hope the problem is not that bad and we can sort this out.

Not to hijack the thread (well, not much) but that looks like a 3 gal Rotopax gas can. did you have any issues with it leaking while laying flat like that? Been wanting one for me but was concerned about it travelling flat. Thanks.

Back to the story......................

Yes, 3 gallon rotopax. My buddy Martyn has made thousands of miles riding like this and it never leaked, not even a single drop

Hi Andi
I just recently got a SPOT Connect for a trip up through centre of Oz later this year, and I'm wondering how long you get out of a pair of batteries with yours?

Are you using the Lithium Energizers as Spot recommend? Expensive buggers, but I recently found out the chinese company that makes them, and they sell to their local market branded with their own name, for $3.50/pair delivered.

Great calendar pics Ellen - not surprised you got two in, as you really have had some spectacular ones over the trip, some of which grace our lunch room pinboard at work at times!
cheers
John

3 Gallon is a good size Jaime, nice to feel safer with that extra amount
