    Those Anakee's are good, but I'd always want a TKC80 or similar on the front for off road.

    Yes, I think that is what I will fit to Red.

    The front TCK70 on Red has done something like 15,000km on it. Needs replacing.

    I have an Avon Trekrider on the rear and it is pretty good. The TKC80 on the front would be a little more aggressive which would be a good combination I think.

    Things have taken a bit of a change.

    Moving house in 4 weeks. It will need some serious work done on it and we'll need to live in a caravan while that is happening.

    So, we've become a caravan owner, a 26 foot Jayco. 2012 model.

    It needs a serious tow vehicle so once again I'm a Ute owner. This time a new one :yikes.

    Pick up the caravan and ute in the second week of September.

    AND...

    I must confess that I have bought a new number plate for the ute, BOSSHG :lol3.

    A graphic designer mate is tempting me by doing the graphics below. I might just yet get this done :hmmmmm:augie...

    And pics of the caravan itself. You'll understand why this needs a serious tow vehicle

    YES! You should. Not sure about the proposed personalized numberplate though, reminds me to something different:

    Red goes in for a warrant of fitness and a new front tyre tomorrow. I might even take it out for a long ride this coming weekend.

    moving house starting tomorrow. So far haven't sold my red garage so it moves with me, not that I'm complaining.

    Yep, the toy department has grown.

    Both the Ute and the caravan (RV trailer) are sitting in my driveway
