?

The Tigers leave Melbourne on the 8th of Nov will they make it all the way round

  1. Yes they will blitz it in and look good doing it

  2. The tigers will make it but only just (assuming they can find enough lattes)

  3. Nah they wont make the border

  4. They aren't a "insert favorite bike" here so there is no way they can make it

  5. Who cares just show me photos of the carnage

    Have fun Philth and Bob. I'm in Kalbarri at the moment. It's been hot and windy north of Exmouth and then much cooler and windy south of Exmouth. I realise your going inland so it'll just be bloody hot! :lol3

    It'd be great if we could catch up for a beer again, we might have to see if the planets align?! :freaky

    looks like it could be hot on those pommy shit boxes...

    I looked at the spot link, saw the legend page, but didn't see no pictures of Philith or Bob... maybe they aren't legends afterall:evil

    ride hard and stay safe lads.

    how much fuel is left sloshing round in the sides of those 30 litre safari tanks when the motor starts to splutter? does it all get used or is there some left?

    just put one on, and looks like the pump pick up is quite a bit higher than the lowest point either side.

    Bugger all left it sloshes up into the fuel pump pickup area. I try not to get that low on fuel as having low fuel is what causes issues with the pump. I haven,t had any problems with mine and have run it low twice.

    cheers podge

    got a bit of a fright today, i put some in. thought i might've just paid 900 for a 30 litre tank that would only let me use 24ish. i knew there'd be a bit of slosh but carting fuel round i cant use wasnt the idea

    could put a jerry on the back, run it dry and see.

    cheers
