  1. Received my jersey today. Thanks for organising Mr Noodle and Geoffro. ( and anyone else involved)
  2. Mate I’ve only had it out a couple of times. I damaged some ligaments in my shoulder a month or so ago which I suspect will need surgery. On top of that I’ve been trying to Reno a caravan up at eildon. I did manage to get for a couple of hours last weekend at eildon in between work and kids. I can report, I’ve had Tracrite set up the suspension for me which feels good so far. I did manage to get the bike a bit hot on a long steep climb so a thermo fan is first item on the list now. Other than that, I’m still getting used to riding a smoker again but so far it’s putting a smile on my face each time I’m on it. It seems to be running really crisp, it’s starts first push of the button from cold, and it has plenty of power to get me into trouble. Fuel economy seems good so far too. No problems to report and hopefully it stays that way. Have you got yours simonj?
  3. Good game. Cats came to play but I think tigers legs were too strong in the end. Oh and that guy tommy lynch what a star. Cmon tigers one more to go!!

    I’ve seen a lot of different set ups in our local club from enclosed bike trailers with fold down bunks like above, or some put mattresses or swags inside trailer. Frames built above open trailers with roof top tents on them. Vans to carry bikes then swags set up under roll out awning. Horse floats used as bike trailers. Some people get quite imaginative with set ups and it’s good to hear and see everyone’s ideas as they work through them from one meet to the next. There are some awesome enclosed bike trailers you can get but they don’t miss you on price. Really depends on budget, and if it’s only for yourself to sleep in then a big rig is probably an overkill. If you work for yourself you might be able to buy a “work trailer” through your business [emoji12]
  6. Thanks Bear for leading this ride at fairly late notice. What a cracker of a day to be out riding. Conditions were awesome. I met a lot of new faces today with only a couple I’ve met before. The loop Bear put on was exactly as advertised at 2+ with a couple of tricky bits thrown in to keep everyone honest. All riders got through pretty well with only a couple of small offs which resulted in some bent bars and a sore wrist. Bear sorted out bars at the lookout by loosening the triple clamps off and straightening the forks up. There were no break downs or hold ups which was good. It was only my second time at Tallarook and it’s definitely up there for me. It has a bit of everything. All up almost exactly 70km done. Thanks for the ride everyone, and I look forward to catching up with you again sometime [emoji106]
  7. My hoodie turned up today also. Looks good Thanks
  8. Cheers mate. Bike is in getting suspension mods now can’t wait to get it back so I can ride it. Not sure about interchangeable parts personally
  9. That’s good to know but I didn’t keep the original springs to put back in [emoji23] Tracrite bought the original new ones off me after he installed the heavier springs. He might do it again with the new bike, and if he does it makes it cheaper to get my suspension set up.
  10. Took the new beast out for a solo shake down today. First impression - OMG. What a weapon. After nearly 3 years on the 4T dark side I can’t believe it took so long to go back to the smoker. Although it doesn’t smoke much. I had read some negative comments about the power of the TPI and was a bit apprehensive before I bought it, but i was very impressed. It has more than enough IMO. I took it up some pretty snotty rocky hills and it seemed impossible to stall. Just twist and go, sometimes with a little clutch. Now just have to get the suspension sorted, tweak the handlebar set up and enjoy. Anyone thinking of getting one , do yourself a favour and try to get a ride on one, you won’t be disappointed. 2 thumbs up for me [emoji106][emoji106]
  11. Not sure if they would fit or not. These new bikes have had the radiators redesigned so I suspect not. I don’t know if the redesign has changed the mounts. I tried to strip the old skid plate off the 500 when I traded it and the boys at the shop said it wouldn’t fit. If that’s the case then there might not be too many interchangeable aftermarket parts.

  13. Yeh I called them today and apparently the guards are on their way from manufacture now and due to be available mid to late next week.
  14. Same to you mate. Gotta spoil yourself sometimes [emoji12] Dealer told me next shipment was due in next couple of weeks so yours shouldn’t be too far away.
  15. 300 mate. The bottom end suits my lug it around style. Do you have one coming?
