    Thanks John. Lifting - the RE weighs 180 solo, I'd hate to see what it is now. All the best

    I'd have one of those 12v boat winches mounted to the chair frame somewhere useful. Not too heavy or bulky, and strong enough to pull that rig out of a hole. Bugger lifting. ALDI do them once a year for not much money. My 2c. Good luck.

    Normally road is closed. And you would have to have better footware than you had at eudunda when it snowed years ago. :lol3

    Hey Joe. For your info a cbr600rr file pump works on a strom. Pressure is close enough. oh, and so does a street triple tank. fits good.

    It wasn’t that long ago, but I reckon Joe would still have nightmares about the snow and how cold it got, ☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️

    So my road trip showed up a few issues(yes I was warned) I've replaced the 23inc wheel with the more normal 21inc and just to be real silly I stole the rear 18inc from Winnie and put that on the outfit. Just need to refit the front brake and then do another test ride. The joy of it all.

    Jeepers Beet you will not cover much ground or go very quick if you take those spanners as they are the snail type.:lol3:lol3.
