    Drinking and bikes.. how much better does it get? :rofl Don't spose anyone has original sized sprockets I can buy, beg, steal? But I guess I would have to get a new chain as well...

    Oh and I don't think I will be making the mankini judging sorry guys :cry I think I am heading north with an SA inmate next week for however long of fishing our way up the north coast. It's an offer too hard to refuse :evil

    That sounds the goods Simon. Will have a think and check my finances. I know I should do it as the chain seems a bit worn.

    Well I don't need to now but I can if it was me invited as well to dinner. Up to Brian / you. I will be in Freo from tomorrow with a bed when I want it. Leave it up to you guys. I am off on a big ride Tues so hopefully I have more blood than alcohol in the system by then :rofl

    What do I need to buy before Sun.. ie fork oil etc? And I am getting chain and sprockets so I hope that won't be much hassle lol.

    YOU ARE INVITED.

    you need just over a litre of 10weight fork oil apparently, should be no hassle doing chains and sprockets as well.

    I noticed last time I was in "Supercheap Auto " last they were stocking a bit of bike stuff including engine oil AND fork oil. Don't know if all stores are the same but it was Armadale that I was in.


    Try them .They are everywhere and pretty cheap too.

    Cheers Jay

    Rob has been drooling over my GT-Riders maps of Chiang Mai for weeks now and so we've finally booked and paid for the tickets. We'll arrive in Chiang Mai on Thursday 14th February, spend two weeks exploring the north west and north east of Thailand on XR'S or KLX'S or whatever Mr Mechanic can scrounge up for us, and then head back to Perth on Thursday 28th Feb :clap

    If you're interested in joining our self-guided SE Asian riding adventure then drop me a line :deal

    This time around I'll make sure that Rob packs (a) a jacket that actually zips up, (b) proper gloves - rather than just plastic shopping bags, and (c) a proper helmet, rather than a plastic pudding bowl. With such experiences under our belts what can possibly go wrong ??? :lol3

    Cheers, Richard.
