Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

I'm also interested in one of these. But Ballards don't seem to have them listed on their website, and the South African company don't answer their emails. Does anyone else in Australia sell these. Google hasn't been much help.

Ballards aren't really set up for online shopping. It's definitely in their curent catalogue which is on their website.

Best way is to phone them.

I haven't tried SA. Was it these people... http://www.gps4africa.co.za/

The 'funnel' is stored in a small pouch and just pushes into the cap neck... I was dubious first time I used it but it's been ok... Didn't fall out and wash the bike. One thing I don't understand in the design is it rolls up in one direction but straps go at 90 degrees ... Hmmm
And the back

(Off my phone so pics are probably big... Apologies in advance)
The 'bladder' is sewn in to its canvas bag...

Yep, it was them. Thanks for the help guys. I've sent an email to flying brick.
