    Cheers for the kind words..

    Generally riding by myself.. a few with others.. if there's no pictures of other people or bike's.. then there ain't none there...!

    Yeah... I like it! Definitely likes the corrugations more... And..Seems more planted when it gets loose....

    Do have to soften up the front end a bit more before today's testing..

    Bit of a hill climb to start off today's 'testing'... :jjen

    Then some bitumen.. then some crap rocky dirt..

    Oh great.. Just committed to a hillclimb and it starts raining!

    Here's a picture..

    Looks like you're going to test on the salt :)
    Seems your investment has been worth while.

    Is Greg going for the land speed record on a F800 at Lake Gardiner? Or did he just take a wrong turn at Mt Ives Station?

    Glad to hear your behind is getting a smooth ride.....................but that rear tire in the picture is looking pretty thin around the centre. Hope the weather stays dry and there are no sharp rocks on the journey.

    Well, a bit extra air in them for the highway and they made the extra 900km home..

    Thanks for the close-ups! You're certainly getting your moneys worth out of your tyre purchases!

    A ware pattern analysis on this back tire would suggest you lean a little more toward the right most of the time - or is that just the direction of the prevailing wind downunder?
