    Not many other places to go then.

    We didn't get out until 1pm or so.

    Good fun but I'm still hurting :D

    Where did this thread come from??

    No riding Sunday as its raining. Went to the shed to work on the KLR, turned the light on, looked over the bike and realised that there was nothing to do and you can't improve on perfection so switched the light off and parked up in front of the fire watching Rugger and car racing.

    well just think of all the fun you've missed out on then.

    Ah the halycon days of KLR ownership -where you just get on a bike & ride.

    I remember them fondly:D

    I dismantled the front of the TT, measured the bearing surfaces and stuff up and put it back together...

    I want Intimininininators.
    Drain the oil, pull the fork caps, pull the springs, drop the 'nators in, re-oil, springs back in and do them up. No need to even remove the fork legs...

    Easy is good :freaky

    Do they make Important-termite-matters for TT3fiddys?

    Who's up for a ride in Hira on Sunday? I'll be up there Saturday arvo for a bit, as I need to run this in with a few short runs and then longer waits for it to cool down.

    Also...shed night next Thursday night? Venue? Happy to host, and then I can change the oil in the forks on the LC4 - someone, can't remember who, said they wanted to see that.

    Well, Mrs Warewolf was 8 months pregnant with the wee fellah when I last rode it. He turned 4 two months ago.
