  1. I have 2 episodes left. I'm a sci-fi nerd too. Have you watched The Expanse? That's meant to be pretty good too and is on my to watch list.
  2. Started watching the new Star Trek: Discovery tonight. Pretty rad!
  3. No we've been pretty savvy and picked up things on sale. Being tall 8 & 10 year olds they're in adult sizes mostly. But they have literally nothing so helmets and protective gear add up quick even on sale!
  4. Something like that would suit me perfectly. Light and easy to tow.
  5. My niece and nephew are getting bikes for Christmas so I've spent like $700 on mxstore/ama so far... whoops. Did get some great deals though!
  6. Epsom salts baths often work a treat.
  7. Fuel tank out and heat shielded. Bit of a clean with the compressor. Some wires rerouted & tidied, connections checked. New speedo cable didn't arrive so couldn't do that. Was pretty stoked because I managed 90% of it on my own, just needed extra hands for reattaching the air intake. Arts and crafts. Back together running sweet.
  8. Do you find it makes you hot though? I wear a pressure suit so I already have undershirt/armour/jersey which is warm enough. I imagine as a 4th layer the vest would block a bunch of the airflow to cool you down.
  9. This is REALLY important. You do not want to end up with pneumonia with broken ribs.
  10. Ever get the feeling you're not meant to ride some days? Have done a couple of cruisey rides on the new bike so wanted to try something a bit more challenging to continue getting to know it. In saying that, for me that only means L2/maybe a slow 2+. Was going to be riding solo so I always go slower and more cautiously on my own, but on tracks I know well. Gear up mostly, pull the bike out to warm up - hang on no front break at all. Fix that, check the rear - no rear brake either so have to fix that too. Strange since the brakes had only been bled and topped up the ride before and were wor
  11. I use an oztrail "camping" hydration pack. Very small & lightweight but can fit 2 bladders plus essentials/1 bladder and a bunch of stuff. Much cheaper ($39) than anything with motorcycle stamped on it and does the job just fine with some cool little features. They come in a bunch of different size capacities and colours including high vis.
  12. I went on holidays in the blue mountains for 4 days, took some stickers... and forgot to do it. Went to some great spots too ugh.
  13. If I was in Vic I'd attend in a heartbeat. Hope some of you girls can go.
  14. It's only your first bike, not your last bike. You can always upgrade when you feel more comfortable. I started on a ttr230 for the seat height - now when I sit on it, it feels too low and cramped. You'll get more confident.
