    As far as we know, it's on. Fingers crossed Dan et al will say, "Fly. Be free" and Steven Marshall will say, "Bring your money with you".

    I gave up on the notion of going to Queensland. Anna was doing the "Yes, yes, yes. No, no, no." thing.

    Just about finished rebuilding the front end; greasing swing arm bearings,doing service,freeing seizez chain adjuster bolts,new chain etc, swapping steering dampener from original (foreground)to replacement. Got back from north coast last month,had exactly 160k km so decided thats time for a rest. It will sit in the shed now &I'll try to punch out some kms on the next generation. Should be fun!

    The first bit of farkling. A fly screen. Easy fitting except for dropping little screw down intake tunnel. Bugger. Only had a couple of beverages. Bit of headlight mount dismantling to retrieve screw. This bike is actually designed for easy servicing. Even has a little rod to hold the fuel tank up for access to battery/top of engine. It inspires me to do some more exploration of the dismantling process. 20201023_175544.jpg 20201023_175559.jpg Screenshot_20201023-175805_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20201023-175854_Gallery.jpg

    Gave the 350 some lovin yesterday arv. New rear tyre and mousse, new chain and sprockets, new brake pads front and rear, ready for more fun and laughter. Good time to clean the brake pad pins, adjuster bolts etc as well and make sure everything works as it should.

    Hey mate, been running mousses for nearly 4 years now. I like them although a bit spendy when purchasing. This is my 3rd rear and still on second front. Awesome for trail riding, haven't had a flat since:lol3. Don't carry tubes or tyre levers, just the KTM tool kit and cable ties. Line selection is not as critical to stop pinch flats and i reckon i am getting more life from my tyres. It feels quiet dead to push around and us quiet noticeable compared to a tubed tyre. Probably not everyones cup of tea, but i rate them. That Mousse would have gone back in if it wasn't split. It was pretty dry when i pulled it out, was me being lazy and not pulling it earlier and re lubing it i reckon.

    Yesterday in sudden burst of enthusiasm I put some motard rims on the SE and went for a ride around (still within our 25k radius)
    Went and saw Andy Strapz, called and had a yarn to @camoktm and generally had a bit of fun.
    After seriously not riding for 5 months, was great to get out.
    Nearly dropped it turning around on a grass nature strip.... road tyres dont grip on anything other than bitumen.
    I wont mention the glorious SE exhaust note....
