Post  Chook on Fri 31 Jul 2015, 5:12 pm

First topic message reminder :

Who's planning on doing the WSBK's in February, and who is interested in getting a house on the island?

There are plenty of options but we'd need to know who wants to join in to get a idea of what size place we'd need?

Going


Hammy + Mate
Ewok & Bev
madmax
Chook
reddog and Mrs reddog
Barry & Axle

Glad to hear you made it home safe Chook.  I think it was the best " gathering " yet.

ps.  We won't mention the pool at Omeo.   Very Happy
I must admit today was a struggle, I had to work real hard not to nod off. I went to bed at 12:30, woke at 4:20am, tossed and turned but couldn't get back to sleep, left Frances just after 8:00, coffee stop 1/2 hr up the road at Bordertown, quick stretch at Tintinara (rode in the rain for about 15km before then but it was still well over 30deg), fuel & coffee at Tailem Bend, it was pretrty hot fot most of the trip but when I came through the Heysen tunnels just before Adelaide it was like riding into a blast furnace, by the time I negotiated city traffic and nearly every red light from the Old Toll Gate to home I was absolutely drained
That Sounds like a shit ride mate. I just got back from a ride to quindanning for lunch. 210kms as I rolled in the door. First ride on the bandit for a while
Other than being tired the 1st 300 km wasn't too bad, the last 20-30 was pretty shitty, 
Almost forgot, the 1st 50 km was spent dodging roos and wallabies as well, did that bit pretty slow.

I couldn't make the last session - speedo said 150km.

So I still got lost a lot.

Get with the program!

PS: my odo readings are reduced by the speedo healer.

Hey, that means your maintenance intervals are longer than everyone elses reducing your maintenance costs by 8% 


But on the downside then I only really did 138 kms at the track reducing the number of laps I got by 8%  Crying or Very sad

But I think my tyres last 8% longer than they really do     but they actually don't  Crying or Very sad

But........I think I better stop now Embarassed

Then I've answered the age old question. Silver ones are faster.

Mine was 8% so I fitted a speedohealer.

Which blew up.

I pulled it out and was going to throw it away. A friend said can I have it? He resoldered all connections on the pc board and it resumed normal operation so his bike is now slower.

Therefore silver ones are 3.5% faster than black ones.

Blue ones are more efficient. travel from one place to another and do it over a shorter distance Laughing
