    Yeah, I didn't realise that because the brand isn't listed on their online shop. But I called anyway & they're happy to get me a pair in to try on, no obligation.

    I'm always "interested" in a ride, but I'm in the throes of house-moving, so that is taking priority for a short while.
    A good loop I did years ago was Canberra-Bombala-Mckillops Bridge-Omeo-Dargo on day one, then back to Canberra via Bright, Tallangata, Corryong, Adaminaby, we did it on an Australia day weekend, a damn fine ride.

    An alternative is to make a tube spanner out of a bit of appropriate diameter pipe by crushing the sides against the nut in a vice.

    Thanks guys - doing a lazy fix on my G/S 34 mm fork cap which keeps undoing - just want to nip it up in situ. DD is helping - all good.

    Well while we're asking, anyone closer to me than Bergdonks (100km!) with a press that could seat a lower steering head bearing on a Yamaha lower triple clamp? Guess I could use a bit of pipe, block of wood and thumpometer, but pressing it on is preferred.

    Had a big turnout for a ride to Jugiong yesterday, via the gravel roads around Rye Park / Binalong / etc ...
    Nice day for it - a bit dusty in the arvo, but the roads generally softer than they have been lately ...
    Home through Wee J - including a new bit of track that lets you travel on dirt from Jugiong, right through to the top of the hill on the Wee J / Tumut road - having established this as a way through, there will some variants to explore - PM or email me if you'd like a GPX file ...

    Shutting down the computer now, about the last thing to take down to the Bega Vally.

    I'll be back when I figure out how to post without having to pay Telstra (code for "thieving cunts") $145/month.:eek1 I shit you not.

    TPG do it for $59/month, but are not available where I will be.
