I still think they should give me a job it their r and d dept. Perhaps in the "durability testing" section.



If not... then you have something to tinker with when you pick your up from the dealer later next month RJF...
It wasn't going to be here in time for Condo, so I told them they can keep the 690 Rallye, and stick there factory racing contract too !

Regards your float bowl screws... were they those "impossible to unscrew with a phillips head driver without chewing out the screw head cheap shit M6 Mikuni" type screws...? I replaced mine with M6 metric hex heads on my old LC4 for just that reason...

Cheers!
Yep calling into the bolt shop for some m5 / m6 x 16. might get some a bit longer and put flat and spring washers on there too.

One day at the Commonwealth Employment Services Desk...

"Well Mr RJF... I would suggest if your looking at a position in the motor industry as an R&D engineer, you might like to learn to differentiate between the the terms "vibration" and "bone jarring/glass fibre damaging impacts"...

"Now on the merits of your latest contractual negotiations with those lovely gentlemen from Austria... I'm going to set you up with a job interview down at the Sydney ballet Company..." "...The word PRIMA DONNA springs to mind!"


(You'd look goog ridin' at Condo in orange tights and a tutu I reckon mate... guess who'll be the first one tossed out of the back bar at the Condo Hotel on Friday night in that get up... Unless of course Legless and Old Dog come dressed the same!" )


Anyway back to V-max's.... or fat BMW rallye bikes... or KiWi travell plans... or whatever the hell this thread was about... I need a Weissbier!

Heres a Honda one...



was wandering around and found this shot of Glen Hoffman and his 2004 Safari Spec. GHR XR 650... Thats gotta be the biggest tank I've ever ever seen on an XR... No wonder he refers to it as the "Supertanker"

Checked it out last night, but it did not seem to have upgrades for GS/GSA1150s.
Does anyone know if this option exists?

Love the thread by the way.
The "instant boner" say's it all.
Caked myself!

One of AT Gregs riding Mate's. ok that doesn't narrow it down as it appears Greg knows nearly every person that owns an adv styled bike

I think he said Shane Watts' father or uncle, etc owned it.

looked like a weapon!
