    Thanks guys. Had a bit of fun today, although paying the price now. I can barely walk.
    Was good to meet a few more riders today too.

    yep was good fun thats for sure. the old girl did well all up :) though new fork seals are on the way an the good forks will be finally going back in her.

    got slightly misplaced on the way back. though did find old train lines in the middle of no where. must've been narrow gauge once upon a time.

    will have to get out some more with her that's for sure.

    Will go back and do a bigger run in the future. Did this ride with Hoi An Motorcycle Adventures - would recommend to anyone visiting.

    Hope to get the 990 out again soon (just received a new rim to replace the octagonal front).

    Cheers

    looks and sounds like a good trip Konrad, you've been a bit quiet, wondering what you were up to.

    Had a ride last weekend with another 990 rider along, nice looking bike ( for a KTM :D)

    Forget headlights, indicators and brake lights - your horn is the only thing that matters on a bike in Asia! Have fun Kev.

    Any more dents in the car? A quick prayer to the little orange man hanging of the mirror and of you go.

    DR is coming along nicely, 2 things that worry me. Still have quite a bit of shavings on the drain plug, and I think that the frame is bent and that's why the swingarm is on a bit of a funky angle. Weird I've never crashed it.

    Does anybody know if there is a place in Perth that can check and fix that? And any idea about the price?

    Most simple way to check if frame is bent is string line bike from front rim to back rim both sides..
    Then do same from front forks to rear swing arm outer ends.
    They are never perfect straight,,,even brand new..
    Main thing is make sure wheels are parallel, if there not then it will ride like a 3 legged dog..
    if they ar parallel and less than 5mm off center no big deal..
    more than 10mm and it will handle like a standard harley belt drive..Yep, there not straight..lol

    This simply results in a bike that will push the front on lefts and tuck the front on rights...
    We used to get frames bent/straightened over east.
    I do not no of a frame jig in perth..
