    Would you fellow Victorians be keen to head a bit further up north, beyond the (mandatory) stop in Jindabyne? Like Blue Mountains, just west of Sydney?

    I don't know of any, we tend to either go for quality, there's a few of Germany's finest, or pretty ordinary. Not much of the in between stuff.

    There's only 45 in the country. Doubt it.
    No idea yet how many 890 rallys will make it here.

    I wouldn't get to concerned, I’m sure a slightly bigger better one will be along in no time

    Not saying anything, simply implying that there might be a composite number sequence... To present a square / rectangle... The principle square root of 9 is sqrt(9) = +3 (or -3).

    We have 2 already, maybe No3 will make a come back (?) Sub 200Kgs wet?

    MPE has done about 30 x 790’s suspension and has a $500 upgrade option. A mate phoned last week. He’s going with that option before he does the $8000? suspension upgrade...
    I think I might get my 900 done too.
