I thought you'd enjoy that ...
She did well, but she does stink a bit - it's not an unpleasant smell - a bit like following a Mitsubishi Colt up a hill - not quite as bad as Baza's bike, but then ...
oh my god, I've been relegated to Mitsubishi Colt status.....
buys foxtel subscription instead
On that note, some wisdom says it might be valve seals.... might do that before rings
PS it's a he, not a she.... BIke never complains....
Which one? :eek1
Home again. Thanks for a great weekend, Numeralla!
Good company, good weekend, just a bit of rain. Yeah, it came down hard, for short periods. The Tiger broke down in it about 10km east of Numeralla on Sunday arvo - fuel pump died. Still, much easier to deal with that up my sister's way in Bundaberg, or my brother's on the north side of Brisvegas.
Thanks to Donks for rescue '1'.
Thanks to Dobbo for rescue '2' - about 3 or 4 km from home when it became apparent that I not only have a fuel pump failure but I also seem to have a fuel tap problem. Diagnosis to follow.
Of course, if Dobbo hadn't decided that we should take the two or three extra long cuts from Tumut, then I would've got home on the fuel I had. That would then mean that I would be none the wiser of the fuel tap problem. It's ALL Dobbo's fault.
I do hope everyone else got home safe & well.
Myself and Tripod managed to get home tonight without incident.... ?????
Thanks to Donks and the local community for a well run weekend
Once again great to catch up with other Adv'ers

That'd be when you bailed out of Angle Crossing. it was only .4m ya big girl's blouse.
Or was there any other incident?
Maybe getting horribly out of shape, many times, on Tinderry Rd? What was that about "no brakes, no traction, no steering"?
Ok, that was a bit greasy. And perfectly illustrates why I've decided to have a training wheel. Whilst your eyes were wide and your sphincter tight, I was enjoying myself.
Angle Crossing 40cm deep on Sunday?
Amazing what a days rain will do... it was only about 15 on Saturday.
Sally and I made it home late afternoon yesterday, after spending a very pleasant night with friends at Cabbage Tree.
Thanks to the BergDonk/CJ modification to the sidecar suspension, we had no troubles, and the rubber block looks as good as when we left Numeralla.
Thanks Steve, you did a fantastic job, and I appreciate the help both you and Ray gave me. True ADVers.
10km from Numeralla. 'Out' of petrol. More correctly, unable to pump the petrol I have. Thanks for the petrol, Donks.
3km from home, out of fuel again. The main tank fuel tap seems to be broken. Thanks for the petrol, Dobbo.

There WERE people playing actual instruments. Not Dobbo though - the 'heavy metal harmonica' remained invisible.
Crustyvarmint & his opposition leader head off, after the Donks Repair Service.
Not quite successfull panorama from my digicam. Badja Forest Road or Tuross Falls Road. Can't recall now.
This one worked a bit better. Less near the camera to distort. The Cascades.
Monday morning on Tinderry Road. Fair bit of wet clay.
Heading towards the 'bidgee at Angle Crossing. More rain in the Brindabella's?
The clouds held back all teh way home.
Martins Rd, Corinbob. I still had petrol and the camera still had battery.
Mitchell Rd, Lake Albert. I've run out of one of the above mentioned.
Reckon I need another one of these too.
We all had a top weekend, a good destination for an excuse to ride to. With a folk festival thrown in for something to do when you’re not riding. The food was great at good prices, with the odd bit of dessert here and there.
I meet Uncle Gra on the Friday and rode the dirt roads up together, Dobbo and Tripod were all set up at camp when we arrived. Then Bergdonk came down with some cold liquid for us all. Thanks Donks.
Saturday Burgdonk took us out for a ride in his home town on some fire trails and some single track,For a bit of a look around. Thanks again Donks.
My wife and friends arrived Saturday arvo. They came up a different way on the black top.
Us lot from the south all left at slightly different times and went different ways, we all meet back up at Bruthen to camp for the night. Then all rode home together Sunday.
Thanks again to Bergdonk and Tripod for fixing Crusty’s sidecar, well done. Not only did it get him home, he is off out on it this weekend.
