    Was in Harrison up the west side, we've had such a mild winter it's been amazing. I got the bike insured Dec 18 and already have over 1000kms on it

    Well I haven't done much to Charlize since I posted last October other than getting the seat customised. It is a fair bit more comfortable than the old cement fence post which masqueraded as a seat before. IMG_20190227_145847.jpg IMG_20190227_145902.jpg

    Who did the seat for you Hillary, the guy in Goulburn? I wouldn't mind a better seat, using an Airhawk for now.

    Yes Mick at MJM in Goulburn did the seat. I dropped the bike of about 8.30am and was ready to go by around 1.30pm. Had a good day as we both knew a lot of people some from within the motorcycle community and a fair few from outside as we both have a pretty similar background. The day he did my seat was the 30th anniversary of being in the business. We decided to flatten out the rear of the seat (I don't carry a pillion) to make it better for putting stuff crosswise.

    How long have you had your Versys-X300, I've had mine a little over 4 months done nearly 10,000 k's I don't do much distance riding due to health but still manage to get out there and enjoy.

    I got it end of December 2017, so just over a year. It is in for its 12000 Km service on Friday, I had to get them to do the valve check as specified as they were going to leave it to 24000 Km service.
    I have two other bikes as well, last year I rode about 30000 Km on bikes & only did about 10000 in my car.
    I will be down with the VX300 at Sidetrack Ones Tiddlers Rally at Trunkey Creek on 6/7 April if you can make it over there.
    Good to get out & about whenever you can.

    There are a few pics of mine in action earlier in this thread.

    What was the cause of the failure?

    Looks like the bank washed out in a flood. End of concrete looks like transition to asphalt and guard rails hanging down look different than on bridge.

    Hurricanes last year washed out much of the road between San Felipe and where Mex 5 meets up with Mex 1. These were just 2 small portions that we traveled.
    Road crews have been pulled off the new construction to deal with fixing the damaged roads but it will probably be years before all of it gets fixed.

    Mother nature is awesome in so many ways, sometimes absolutely beautiful and other times sadly devastating.
