Trivia .....

Post  gus on Mon 10 Jan 2011, 1:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

What does everone think about a TRIVIA thread

Stuff that maybe of no use to most people but really handy to the others. Maybe a good DVD ,something they have made,seen ,heard of ,
cooked ,been too .Minor things that do not really warrant a post of there own.(like most of my stuff ,there beat you to it )
Like taking a tractor tyre up north to float your Bandit across a river to a football selection ,the taste of beer ,who's state is
better at Rugby League. Laughing (may be not that) .Something that may make someone else say ,"why didnt i think of that".

Good idea or just post it on "off topic discussions " or not post it at all? (feeling vulnerable now )

Hey MTB, the head gasket has been leaking for some time now, I hope I have said the right thing - it is the top gasket, um OK I think it might be the valve cover gasket if there is one. Sorry.
Kays on the old tank is around the 103 000 KLMs range from memory. 
Cam chain was done a long time ago - the mechanic never said anything about that, but neither did I. 
It wont win any beauty prizes but she still makes me smile after I've taken it out for a quick squirt. 
I'm hoping to have it done by this Sat so I can join a few mates for a day ride down to Bowen - about 400 klm round trip. 
Fingers crossed . . .[/quote]


Hi Truck, ahh...valve cover. Yeah a bit of a difference there.
I was getting worried for you.
It's a shame you don't live closer, I'd give you a hand in doing most of the work.
Labour does cost !!!!

Tsv Future Sport Suzuki - recomended

Thanks MTB. If you lived closer I would take you up on the offer.

Just got the tank back and cannot stop smiling. 
This bike scared me the first time the first day I bought it and it scared me the second time riding it home on Friday. It must have been wa-ay down on power before the service but now it just pulls and pulls and pulls. I am pretty certain I am not imagining it.

Went for a ride with 2 mates on their African Safari and BMW, while watching them do rooster tails on a dirt track I thought "never done a line lock before" so I tried it and can now tick that off my bucket list. 
Riding home in the rain, I thought "never broke traction before" so I tried it (in third), can now tick that off the bucket list too.

Love it!!

We went for this ride before we copped 250mm+ of rain. A very good day all round.

I'm still saying the Ride and Event section ( the big section ) is a wast of space . Check out the dates on the last entries . One is 2015  Laughing  I rest my case .
Should be just Events . I do believe we have vehicles that can cross borders safely . 2015 ,still think that's funny  Razz

Just now literally ordered a Delkevic exhaust from USA via ebay. $230 delivered.
My OEM exhaust rusted the end cap off, was rusting internally from what I can see and it was starting to sound like a tank, kind of funny cause I call it a tank.
Bit excited as I don't buy from ebay normally. . . had to get a younger family member to help me.

Have you guys seen this?

Post  Re-Cycled on Sat 16 Jun 2018, 6:45 pm

I've come across this, available as an App for iphone and android as well as web-based.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What3words

You can specify a 3metre square anywhere in the world with 3 words, unambiguous and easier than coordinates.

I can see it being useful to specify the meeting point for a ride or if you need help, a location on a long road in the middle of nowhere.

As and example we start a lot of rides at espresso.corrupts.celery ! Smile
