Hey Rob, you can always fab your own steel braided lines.. Just buy the banjo fittings and matching PTFE steel braided hose and do it yourself.. they may not look as good as a goodridge but they work as well..

Take a look:

Jabroka, nice work with the lines, when you make them with that connection is it as secure as a swaged line? Never seen them done like that.
Rob have ye an ebay link for the full system from your email? Would love to see it.

Today is Irelands first day of full on sunny weather since i rebuilt the old girl. With this in mind i had to get out for a blast.
Theres a load of great little back roads all round where i am so i went exploring but not before giving her a clean


Shiny


Up a forestry road nearby. Goes on for a good bit.




Bouncy bits all doing as they should, even being a total novice onboard i was comfortable enough, just. Not mad on the steeper downhill bits. My drum rear aint great, must adjust it.


Back out onto tarmac and some bend swinging, this is the Liam Lynch memorial near Anglesborough Co Limerick.


Weather was fantastic!

Kyle, cool snaps lad.
Those bridlepaths look great. Im finding that the DR is a great bike for exploring on, especially the backroads eh.
How did your DR fare with the likes of your mates bike (beemer X Country?).
Yeah we must all hook up, would be class to see three sweet examples of what is such a relatively rare sight of bike.
