So its time to go touring mode .
New 1\3 cricket bat grip  and a rest your right hand thingo .



Hand guards ,More for wet weather than cold I expect .


A screen , it looks big but its quite small

A very badly made ( Embarassed ) tail guard to stop rooster tails .I cut the original off , this is a $1 chopping board .


RE-fit centre stand

An air hawk

A modified ventura rack


Swag , mattress, sleeping bag ,ground sheet on the back
Gas light ,2 burners ,  pot ,cup ,wets top\bt , clothes  front . 5 week trip and not a bloody GIVI in sight .

Hi looks good love what you done with the ventura rack. Was wondering what you done with the rest of the rack you cut shelf off as I have got a Universal top box I want to make a bracket up to slide into the ventura l mounts?

Hey Gus,
            That chain guard seems to be getting smaller.  Shocked

Hi Gus No it doesn't just was trying to cheat and use bottom of rack if he had it so don't have to find right size pipe or bar to fit and widths so don't have to tack up on bike. Sorry for hijack

Hotel Ewok highly recommended, take it from experience.

Also welcome to kip at our place as well Gus, the bears go into hibernation soon...

Yes please give us a rough itinerary, we'd love to meet up with you if possible and buy you that beer I owe you.

I have some time off coming up and so may be able to plan an intercept, plus I was thinking about another Southern adventure, without the rain this time.
