    Fitted B&B radguards today. Then removed them for a refund as they don't fit properly.:fpalm

    I guess that is what I will be buying eh.

    So much for supporting local businesses. I did try, but now I wonder why I bothered.

    Packed up ready to leave tomorrow for Mt Augustus. Halfway through making a set of custom panniers, ran out of time ( my sewing skills are lacking, off to see mum )
    All the super light stuff in the rear bag, packed an epic amount of food/tools/spares just to see how it all goes in preparation for an major trip across OZ, if we ever get to travel again.... 20200804_110314.jpg

    Funny that you mention the SRV. I have been keeping my eye out for a LAMS naked road bike and I saw a pic of a SRV yesterday and I decided I wouldn't mind one. I remember when they came out and my boss at the time was considering getting one, but I haven't thought about them since then, and now I see mention of them twice in less than 24 hours...

    Strange that.

    Yes there was one advertised recently for $3500 gumtree or bike sales.
    Mine was $3.5 also.
    Gets lots of attention and looks great.
    All l have done is changed the bars, was like pushing a pram.
    Be warned there are only used spares ex Japan now so make sure all the major components are not to worn.
    There's a 250 Gamma 2st for sale as well for $3k. Tempting.

    I got a few different bikes I'm keeping an eye out for, Aprilia RS125, and ZX250r are two that were high on my list. I tried for the RS first, and when that became unworkable, the ZX2r had sold, so I missed out on both.:lol3

    I bought a set of newish hard panniers for road tripping.

    The soft luggage is great but the wife can't come as I use the top bag and foot peg mounts for this setup

    Unfortunately I'm land locked at a WA mine for 2 months on with 3 weeks off this year whilst our Southern Clan get version 2 of the super flue sorted so no riding for me. No need to even wash the new bike just months on end on a float charger:dirtdog On a positive I did manage to get 10,000klm down her throttle bodies from September last year to Xmas so life could be worse. 20191021_142554[1].jpg 618118526[1].jpg 20191021_142609[1].jpg

    I also added some Braking front discs as the standard KTM ones (brother was nice enough to install whilst I'm away) are well documented as warping and giving all sorts of unwanted side effects. These have improved the brake feel according to him whilst he was running them and the pads in.

    Oh and I sold my mine site CRF 250 for more than I paid for it and bought a $1000 dollar Camry. Not a bad bike but just not for me and the Camry is a beast when it comes to off road rental car like performance. 20200428_075105[1].jpg 20200303_195728(1)[1].jpeg

    On the “Not Quite The Border Run” ride I didn’t bother taking my Hippo Hands.
    While they are excellent at keeping my hands warm and dry, they are just one more thing to pack away when on a long trip and they are are not being used.

    I like the Oxford half covers, a sort of cut down Hippo Hands, but sometimes I decide to be a tight arse.

    I decided to fill in the underneath gap on my Suzuki supplied hand guards.
    About $6 at Officeworks and some small bolts and nylocks I had in the shed and I have ended up with this.

    I will see how they go.

    Big job yesterday.
    Looking for that feather light clutch on my IT250 build.

    New Venhill cables and Protaper levers on the way. Should be as smooth as silk.
