I think we should commence a Monthly - Retirees and Friends Ride MB, mid week and to all points.......with an overnighter occasionally .

I'm waiting for my panniers and racks from Adventure Moto and with the red wine carrying devices we talked about today, I will be all GO for a camping jaunt soon.

Good work on the RR too.....

TJ's very expensive ride.

We took Philth's "Tigers around Oz" Triumphs into Peter Stevens today.



Now ask Trev if he likes them.........

First things first, I AM going to take a swag to PBee's man cave one day and sleep there afterwards. Well thought out, designed and built, and just the right place to talk sh*t, eat red meat and drink beer followed by a small amount of dark fruit juice to finish it off.

I am also definitely going to buy a Tiger 800 XC at some stage. I started off a little cautiously, as anyone would on someone else's bike, negotiated PBee's fairly extreme driveway, settled in on some windy country roads and then pulled up alongside Pete at traffic lights and asked him what colours these things come in. I am infatuated with them.

From 10-20 km/h in 6th gear it pulls away with strength, and the sound of the triple coupled to the Arrow box (with baffle removed) was absolute music to my ears. Ultimate power anytime, all the time, and great balance. Shorter than the Tenere, I was very comfortable on it, but would have to do some work to the ergos regarding handlebar/riser placement as the set up on this one was a little too far forward for me (plus it had slightly twisted forks).

The bike was hot, and kept my legs, protected by jeans only, thinking they were going to be burnt to a crisp at anytime, the ambient temp was getting up there and at any other time would have normally meant me getting off this thing as soon as possible, but I didn't want the ride to stop and was disappointed when we pulled up at PS to give them to the service guys/gal to do their magic on them.

Nice bikes, and I don't need to take one near dirt to know that I will love it there too. Anyone in the market for a Tenere within 2013??

And thanks for the little job on the DRZ Pete, appreciated.

You wouldn't believe it! I got home and was talking to the painter doing some work at my place. He's been into PS this week and had a look at the white one for $16k+ on the floor.....think I might have sold him on it.....
