    Country town and no farmer had a welder that we could borrow just so we could do a dodgy repair to get us back for that last lap.

    Wrll, got a few hours in the shed today and got all the front-end all back together with new bearings and hardware. Keep thinking of upgrading the front brakes so might have to do some re-engineering later this week. IMAG1450.jpg

    How does the Iced Coffee fork oil work?
    Hey Beet, I took an offroad ride mid-week with my neighbour, and it reinforced for me the importance of wearing proper offroad boots when offroad. Crashing, having my left foot belted clean off the footpeg, multiple rocks and tree limbs, my boots protected me from a lot of nasty stuff that tried to hurt me. The wellies might be waterproof, but only until the first stick penetrates the outer and pierces your calf muscle.

    Thanks. I was half joking, but then again I do ride 90% of the time in work boots. In saying that yes I have motocross boots. On another subject, my sidecar is actually finished, did a test ride with the small front sprocket and I recon she will climb a vertical wall(let's hope passenger and I can stay on)

    Suppose it was the usual set up "draw" The right names get the good spots. Rigging sport, not good IMHO
