    Put a zero in front of the postcode eg for Mt Gravatt put in 04122 it works 3/4 of time saves going in to the counter and no ATM fees.

    Thanks Craig.

    Here's the pictures of what brake cleaner does to split piece choke cables.

    The little metal bit is suppose to slide inside the tube.

    You can see the indent that the metal piece made. I took a pair of pliers to get it out after we cut the tube in two with the dremel.

    If your anything like this pompous opinionated slack-jawed inbred narcissistic incompetent roo feltching kiwi-wannabe ass-hat then we will be waiting for you....with pitch forks and tar....

    Shit cant find my pitch fork, guess it will have to be a beer instead...

    Oh wait...do you get motion sickness when riding a bike in the twisties too? If so keep your ginny ass self home hard enough having to babysit one of you like this panty wearing lilly...

    :deal

    That would be like licking the plate after the dog got done with it...nothing there to be found..

    Just sayin.......

    You haven't watched Sean-0's videos then?

    Sean-0 only gets motion sickness falling out of iron bark trees.

    Or running around in circles with his arse on fire. :freaky

    Enjoying the read, thanks Hodgo.

    How many km have you got on your SE? (got a bit over 41,000 on mine now)

    Re the slave cylinder... when I swapped from the SE to the 525 in Laos, the one on the 525 went out on me. I used baby oil... but I had to ride about 50 km before it self-bled and started working. Topped it off every day after that and no worries.

    Those orange trousers of yours are going to fade to yellow pretty quick if you keep wearing them

    That's just the weekend run about, no way in hell I would let him stay in the house.

    The interior can be hosed down, perfect for cleaning up after the likes of Hodgo....

    Got just under 50K on mine at the moment. So a few teething problems are to be expected.

    The recluse clutch slave cylinder seems to be working very well.

    They make a low version I may give it a try. My current seat leaves more to be desired.

    Well. Camped at Crowley lake. Few good stiff breezes tonight & temp has dropped down to 24degC from about 34 at 6pm. Still fairly light outside.

    Note to self camp further away from Mexicanz. Nice people but only interested I. Their immediate surroundings.

    Good run up highway 395 stunning views. Will post more pictures when I get wifi again.
