Good pics Tony, showing off our lush green pastures. Some nice bikes amongst that lot.

At one point we had Brett’s GSX1400 with the USD front,
A mates back-to-stock B-King,
Jules’s GSXR1000 Streetfighter,
Robs 260-something hp H2
and my H2 SX together.

Certainly an interesting mix!


Really is dry. I just hope with have some gentle rain for a while before this years storms hit. Heavy rain straight up will just run off and take a lot of stuff with it as it is at the moment. 
H2-SX-SE, GSX1400, Hayabusa, B-King, Bandit 1200, GSX1100ET, GSXR1100G and a few others.

Worked in Sydney a couple of weeks ago, had a hint I could pick up my bike from the shippers (after my ride around Europe), picked it up on the Friday, and true to form, Aunty Jack fired straight up :clapping:, and went to Eastern Creek to see some mates racing in the BEARS.

Pictured all loaded up, making an adjustment to the return throttle cable at the Creek.

Did The Putty Rd, up the New England and right at Tenterfield, down though Casino and then Kyolgle, where I went past a parked up 1400, and then shortly after went past a parked up Candy Car, no chase, hope there wasn't a camera onboard  :rolleyes: Through Mt Lindsay Hwy to home in Brisbane. 

Again, not any bike issues, it just loves being ridden. But, I must do something about the seat, I think the foam is buggered, cause my arse was hurting after about 600klms. Just as well I was moving around a bit off the seat on the Bruxner Hwy and Mt Linsay Hwy. ;)

As a suggestion for the seat, buy some gel inserts (ebay) & have them fitted in the std seat, thicker gel the better.
Always looking for the next corner.

Great run out to Thomson Dam and Walhalla pub for lunch yesterday.

3 x 1400 (K3, K7, FE), 1 x 1250 Bandit, 1 x BMW F800GS (as Stig's 14 isn't running right - in the shop Wednesday).

 :cheers:
I plan on living forever - so far, so good!

One of my friends turned up on one of these Saturday. An awesome bit of gear and for a BMW cheap deal.

8-10-19.... 835K’s / 518 miles.
I know my SX-SE is OK around the mountains and dams, it does OK in the twistys, but I wanted to see how it went on the boring, more distance type roads before I plan any longer runs. I put in 835K’s / 518 miles today. Seat and bars aren’t super comfy but I can live with them. The cruise control is excellent for what I do. Tank size isn’t a drama as it doesn’t drink it badly when off-boost. My iPhone works well as sat-Nav but shut down twice in the heat, temps were up in the high 30’s C / 100 degrees F. Up at those temp there’s a LOT of heat around inside legs / thighs. No bush fires but a couple of dust storms on the way home, not bad though.

Saw 41 degrees C on the dash going into Dalby.
That was when the phone shut down, I had sweat in my eyes and my inside legs were bloody hot!

I had a wee trundle around the Dales today, that ended up being 280miles & 12 hrs long...

I even got an entry in the silly place names game, but I saved Star Bottom for another trip even though I rode through it.
