Just Dan has left the building.






After a whirlwind tour, he's on his way back to Melbourne and the boat for the trip to Devonport and ride to Hobart.

We had a great day yesterday doing the Hills and museum

I'm servicing mine tomorrow, so I'll let you know.
Balances at the bottom, breather at the top and fuel pump in the middle ?

Did 180 klms on Saturday and the thing I noticed most was the lack of wind thru the dash.

I hope we're eating crayfish Wednesday n Thursday night - Pt Lincoln, Coffin Bay. Woot

Guys,

I'm trying to set myself up for some SA winter riding, riding gear's okay, am waiting for a Fly Trekker dual sport helmet to be delivered, but need some warm, waterproof gloves....any suggestions?

On MB's last ride my open face helmet let the rain onto my face, then drip down into my jacket, making its way down into my groin area and setting me up for a nice comfortable ride..... The new helmet should fix that, but wet and cold hands were no fun either...

PBee won't be much help 'cause he doesn't ride in inclement weather - apparently!

Let me tell you a story 'bout a man names Stu
Had a pair of Gloves that didn't fit too well............

Anyhoow, they fitted me & 100% waterproof.

Now if I was to be "much help" I would tell you they were Xxxxxxxx Xxxxx Gloves.

Fongy & I went from Penong out west to Quorn on a 10c day pissing down with rain, well over 500km soaked to the bone, Fongy thought his nose was gunna drop off, BUT, my hands were 100% dry & warm.

The gloves also have knuckle armor so are protective as well.

I would thouroughly recommend xxxxxxxxx xxxxx gloves....................................




If I was to be "much help"!

Trev what about the handle bar mittens we use in the 24HR. I had them but didnt use them in 2010 and had inners in my gloves. That was ok but hand movement was very restricted. In 2011 I used the mittens, they are excellent you can wear normal motocross type gloves and still be dry and warm, no cold wind. In a touring situation I guess you can take them off and stash them somewhere if not needed. I didnt like the idea of heated grips for the 24 HR just another electrical thing to stuff up.
