    What's the estimated range?
    Do you have a mine spec flashing light on a whip Arial?
    Hate to see you get road trained.

    625km + 10l bladder gets me another 250km .
    I hear ya re road trains.
    Could always grab a flag from work :D.
    Main concern is heading to qld border , got go the quickest way and not back blocks.
    The rear rear tie downs are reflective, .
    Hopefully my uhf turns up today .

    Very nice ...
    I have done a fair bit long distance riding on the tugger, but not with a chair, rode byron to steep pt once in 7 days on it .
    Touch wood never had a issue with trucks , guess it nots going to be as easy to pop over to the shoulder .
    Running out of time Sunday sees me heading for Roma .
    Looks like a bit of conduit a,bunnings flag and a pushy light is tomorrows job then pack and hit the road .:muutt

    My riding 1st's started on a Honda step through circa 1960 when my uncle took me for a quick spin on what must have been one of the very earliest Honda's in the country.
    If went out the window.
    It just became when.
    1st solo was on a step through as well with a bale of hay tied on the back.
    Great machines. I don't know the current production count, 50? 100? Million that is, plus copies.

    Just over 1000km on the 125 duallie motor. Took it for a run to a rally .
    Hill climbing with your drinks sloshing round in the esky is probably not the smartest thing , bit light on the front end :lol3

    Bit of off roading on weekend .
    Hot dry and dusty out there atm.
    Plenty of rough ,rocky , sandy and washedout tracks. not to mention big hillclimbs . Other than the clanging of the leaf spring and a few moments where it wanted to push me off the side of a hill before it picked up the steerer wheel and shot me back where I wanted it all went well.
    Now to build mk2 with the improved suspension and a few other tweaks for more serious off roading

    Here's a twist of fate .
    Looks like I might end up owning the 1 and 1/2 seater chair parked next to the little one . Was going to scratch build a big one but now it will be a subframe build for a gsx1400 and repairs to the chair floor and a few other mods :super
