Yes, I sometimes browse through Bikesales.com.au and I saw it was just newly advertised so I was quick to make a deal with him. They dont come up very often. I paid $5500 but I've been told this is a cheap price for one in this condition in Australia.

The AT population in Canada is rising every day it seems with RDO7eh's. What a beauty!

It looks like it has some 'jump' to it.

Toy run

Annual "feel good" fun.

grandpa xr and granddaugher cr. hope you can keep up today old man...


Romy had to cancel on short notice as they were short-staffed at the restaurant. That left Layton without a date and all he had to play with was Romy's octopus. Being a Yammie man, his 1st ride on a real bike (i.e. HONDA) left him with a big smile...


Some time to catch up and shoot breeze wduring the line up at the racecourse


Mick and Kelly saddling up for the run. There's daddy's girl...


Being on standby and not being able to go more than 10min away from town, I had to duck out of the throng and miss the "loop", whihc is about 36km of which more than half has no mobile coverage. Layton said he'd keep me company- thanks dude. Plenty of good scenery during the wait for the guys.


Not all fun and games in paradise- business calls!! In some ways moblie phones are making our lives so easy. In other ways, they seem like a chain and ball...



And here they come:

Yeeehaaa That was fun, wasn't it Minnie?


Bit of a break at West beach before hitting the main drag and showing off to the local crowd


Peter's beast- A guzzi with hanging tits...




Ending a nice morning with coffee and cake at Ocean Blues- Sorry you couldn't make it Romy- now where's our coffee???





Now what do we do with the rest of the day?

brake discs advice?

Just 8000 km ago I replaced one of the front discs of my RD07, and now is bended.... Now is time to replace the other one plus the rear too, and just dont feel like spending 700 € on the Honda original stuff, but I will if that is the only relaible option.

I dont ride fast, but two up and fully loaded.

Can you recommend me any source or brand?


Thanks in advance.

Check to make certain the pads are located correctly in the calipers.

There are small metal parts that snap into most calipers to allow the pads to slide in and out. Often these do not get reassembled correctly.

If your calipers use removable pins to guide the pads, check to be certain the pins are not worn with a groove that will fix the pad in place and not allow it to slide.

New discs should not warp if they are of reasonable quality

I have these ones here: http://www.braking.com/catalogue/intro.php?lang=EN
Model: HO18FI

Less problems with heat building up, much cheaper and definitely worth the money. Did a trip around world with these and was happy all the way.

They look like the Rugged Roads crash bars. They're the only ones that I've seen with the extra outer bars attached on each side. I'm going to get a set for my AT soon.
