  1. Have just bought a TT600R Belgarda 98 in Sydney. 13,000 km, Ohlins Legs and in good nick Plan to get back to VIc after the winter and ride the highcountry

    '98 Husqvarna wr250 pickup coil is your best resource for any WR related issues, the guys in the States are really knowledgable and they love their WRs over there. Unlike our racist aussie krew
  3. Ive still got the Au with same towbar and have thought of this also, my trailer is a pro built one and bloody heavy But Ive come to the conclusion its not worth it, youd have to change towbar to the square one and no one wants your old one as there are heaps around. Bikes are much safer on the trailer and realistically Ive just driven down to melbourne again from sydney with out the trailer the difference in fuel is probably 50 bucks at most Falcons are awesum they dont care what they tow just drink a bit more

    The 500+ club.

    Ive just put the front end from a YZ 250 on it and now its much more dirt capable. I can load it with as much gear as I want and It will do 300km on a 14litre tank regardless of how I ride it

    Smokers Lounge Saw this for sale in Thailand, Ive got a place over there and thought itd make a great little rice paddy ripper. Only thing is it may be a bit of a bitch to kick over in the thongs after 6 beers

    Just love watching a vid from a WR perspective, those sweet Husky 2T tones Im taking mine out tomorrow Cruiser - it looks like we are both 1964 gifts to the world is yours 250 or 300? I gotta get back to Victoria
  9. Ive got a Terra 650 - its my daily ride - adv bikes are way kool. I got a 650 because you cant really pick anything bigger up if it falls over on anything other than a road, Ive had it for a couple of years and I dont think Ill ever part with it.

    Beta 2016

    WR300 with stock Mikuni carb and JD jetting kit 9.5 l tank well done in 80kms Didn't want a bigger tank which are ugly for the husky and who wants to carry more gas anyway ? so bought a Lectron carb from the states Heaps better fuel economy and performance everywhere, I haven't tried to run it out but would be confident 100kms really night and day difference so yeah sorting out the fuelling is much better than carrying more fuel

    Property Investment

    Ive got a few pptys in NZ which are just coming good so Im selling this year. Overseas investments can be good, just ask any chinaman who is buying up Sydney. NZ has no stamp duty and no real capital gains tax, cash-flow neutral pptys are the norm and yes you can claim the income and depreciation on your Aussie tax affairs.
