crash bars

A question mostly for series I (3VD) owners I suppose.
I am going to try to mount my new Renntec crash bars tonight

and I am considering the best way to bolt thru for the lower mount. Do you think I should use the maximum size (not sure, about .5") that fits thru there or should I go a bit smaller to allow shearing thereby transferring less force to the frame/engine?

Gawler Ranges/Lake Gairdner Dry Lake Speed Trials

The Ride Report Preview



G'day guys

The annual Dry Lake Speed Trials are held at Lake Gairdner in northern South Australia, but for the past two years have been washed out, so this year was going to be something special ............ little did I know the truth when I left home early Wednesday morning!


Reporting to you from my bed ........ and quoting my doctor "quite an impressive fracture of your fibular there my boy, your leg will be in plaster for at least 6 weeks"

Aussie Jase not much better off, still not knowing the extent his damage as of yesterday, after being carted out of the Gawler Ranges National Park late Wednesday, with his bike being left in the park.

Full report in the making (after another "healing" ale or two or three or ..... or ..... and )





from this ..................



to this .............



finding two unbalanced legs when I removed my boots after riding over 8 hours & 600kms in the saddle to get home a day early



BUT! .................... An absolutely fabulous location for a major organised destination, with cold beer and freshly cooked food available at the lakeside canteen overlooking the track with views from the erotic to the exotic
