But you can remove valve stems with them. It's getting harder to find caps that will do it and I hate the rubber ones.

24"+ of snow at the house today, plus wind. Shovelled the sidewalk, loaded the bike in the truck and headed over the Rockies. In Fruita, hoping to hit the Kokopelli trail tomorrow:

I have had similar alloy caps corrode onto the valve threads, that was on a used car I bought. I had to get the valves replaced.

In short - yes.

Got the Rally Raid. Took the 'paint shaker' buffeting right out of it.

Good picture quality can be had quite cheaply, and in a compact size perfect for bikes. Panasonic LX5 same as the Leica De Lux 5. You get excellent optics, full manual control, and the ability to shoot video in 720p

With the Leica you pay more, but get Adobe Lightroom software which brings it equal

I also have the previous model LX3 with the wide angle lens 35mm EQ= 18mm

This is a professional set up without braking the bank or going to SLR's

In the old days I carried around a 1978 Nikon F2 and two FM Nikons with an assortment of lenses. I need to know a good way to convert my old 35mm B&W and Trannys to digital. It needs to be top quality........ 40years of bikes and traveling the world........ Geek/anyone ??????

LX3 plus Wide angle adapter:-



Yeh Vic........... in your dreams..... Yamaha crapp...... De Lux5



LX3......... Good little camera. My missus took these on her 3 day of photography.

I like your choice of fuel hose. I have started using this stuff again. Originally for my vintage bikes, but now on everything........

good to hear others are using it, I was little reluctant at first but thought I'd just use it and see how it stood up.
