He needs to stop pushing you off when you get in front. @Bluetonguejak
Thinking I need to get out on the SE shortly or even get the 690 out and see if I still have much love for it.
The 1190 is on the stand ready for love and tidy up for sale. I have a funny feeling I know what is going to happen when I clean her up and take her out for a spin though. 150 horsepower, smiling, skids. Hmmm, do I really need to sell this.
Bullshit. Keep it.
I not sayin' nufin
3 to 4 hundred k loop of south gippy leaving from Drouin this Wed. Big bike friendly. As much dirt as possible. Hit me upi f your interested.
I just thought I'd bring this thread into the new year with my new toy. I've only given it one short ride but hope to have another two this week. What a cracker!
Nice bike !
I have been busy, I thought this would take a weekend, 50 hours later.... But it's my first build so things take longer when you are learning.
I'm doing a test ride this Saturday, just faffing about so not worth inviting others. I am still having trouble with the front brake and abs cable rubbing against the controls from the LHS handlebar. I have wrapped them and will see how it goes but I'm not confident it's solved.
I may need some expert advice if anyone here has rally tower experience. I've had so much trial and error and am still unsure of the tolerances.
Ooooh I like a rally 701!
I have a 701 SM and those cables rub on all sorts of stuff. They're a pain in the arse.
I've never looked at the ends of the cables. would you be able to lengthen them and run them across the lower triple tree clamp? I think I've seen them run the front brake like like that, but I've never seen it with the ABS module.
Out for a ride with @bigborett yesterday, generally easy run, found some gentle but greasy clay hills around Gentle Annie ... good stuff.
Found an interesting track with about 10 x 4" high humps in a row... like a giant set of whoops, or a rhythm jumps section. Might have to come back in the dry.
Ooh that Gentle Annie climb is a killer in the wet. In the dry, I've made it up on my Supermoto on road tyres.
There's a few fun tracks around that area, but many are still closed after the fires a few years ago. Head towards Neerim and take the side tracks for some fun too.
Have to agree with you Neonasty. Only experience I've had with this so called Gentle Annie was on my IT many years ago. I nearly gave up riding that cold miserable day.
My son was 4WD there a few weeks ago in the wet. He reckons there was carnage galore.
To richo and bigborett I take me helmet off to you.
People being recovered in their 4x4s from Gentle Annie
I've tried going up about 4 weeks ago, it was not raining but the base of the track is slippery clay I was by myself, after dumping it in a rut I decided to turn around and go back down. It was lots of fun up to where I got. I came from the Gentle Annie camp at the start of the Tea Tree track, going up from this side is steeper.
Hello knowledge base!
I've done a search, and had differing views regarding Victorian Recreational Rego being used in other states. The Vicroads site says nothing regarding use in other states or territories.
Most states say they require full registration, but also recognise other states registrations. I take that to mean they recognise Vic Rec rego as long as you stick to the rules as designated by your state. I don't like the idea of a local cop pulling you over on your Vic dirtbike and explaining to them that you don't need full rego, but maybe a print out from their Govt. Website may help?
Anyway below is what I've found on an Internet trawl of their websites. I haven't looked at Tasmania and didn't have any luck looking up WA.
Has anyone taken their rec rego bike interstate and had any problems?
From SA Transport:
Vehicles registered in another Australian state or territory can be driven in South Australia. People visiting temporarily can drive vehicles registered interstate without having to register them in South Australia.
From Dept Roads NSW:
Visitors to NSW
If you are visiting from interstate you are allowed to drive in NSW using your interstate registration provided:
your vehicle is in NSW temporarily
your home state registration is current
you display the number plates and registration labels required by your home state.
NT Dept Roads:
Visiting vehicle classification
To be a visiting vehicle it must be all of the following:
only temporarily in the NT (less than three months)
registered in another state or territory for the duration of its stay in the NT
fitted with number plates required by the law of that state or territory
issued with compulsory third party insurance within Australia.
You must drive your interstate vehicle on a public road or street under the same conditions, restrictions or limitations that are placed on your interstate registration. If you don't do this, your vehicle can be deemed unregistered.
Vic rec reg is for vic only , you'd have to get temp reg/ permit in the state your in at the time .if you can
If that state has a rec reg system or a day permit manly for racing purposes
I know that these states recognise VictorianClub registration for Historic vehicles 25 years or older, as long as you stick to your own states regulations. Ie log books, so it makes sense that the rec reg system will be accepted too.
I don't see why if you stuck to the laws regarding rec reg, why it wouldn't be accepted.
Have you had problems with it?
Vic has had rec reg for decades most other state it has not been that long , it is manly liability why take the risk for none of the reg fees ,eg stack it nsw end up in nsw hospital when you have paid a vic rec reg , that's about it in a nut shell , full Vicreg part of the fee is a national levy so your covered for a small portion of travel , that's why you suppose to change your reg after 3 months in the one state .
I know for a fact over in Robe/ Beachport SA Vic riders with rec rego get fined.
Great. Thanks I'm glad someone has first hand knowledge with it.
