  1. Never used heated grips or heated gloves. I have had a few road bikes with dirt bike style hand guards and they made a difference in keeping the wind chill away.

  3. Mate Ben's 200+hp Intercooled Turbo MT09 (6th or 7th MT09 he's done) [url="http://postimage.org/"][/url] [url="http://postimage.org/"][/url]

  6. Still alive. Still putting in the miles. Went South and met up with a few Mates in NSW. Im an Old bloke with arthritis, ugly bike with a rock hard seat and a 16 ltr tank. Still managed to get in 1208K's ( 751 miles ) over the weekend.

  8. Just remembered, I did like Tintagel Castle. Not much there but a great location, a good walk down to the ocean then a climb up to the castle remains. Perfect place to defend and hold up. Have you been to St Micheals Mt Dave ? Mont St Micheal in France is bigger and more impressive but the Cornish one is certainly worth a look if your that way inclined...
  9. Quite like Cornwall. Went after the GP last year. Eden Project, Jamaica Inn, Lost Gardens of Heligan, St Micheals Mt, Lands End. Rented a house at Port Mellon next to Mevagissey. Took my old Dad around a few of the huge old pump engines. Did the cliff walks to Gorran Haven with my sister. Wife liked most of Cornwall except for Newquay which she said was "too tacky", I liked the fact I could get Chicken Tikka Cornish Pastys!
  10. Steve Burns Turbo Spondon "Monster"... or BigCC's Turbo Spondon Kat...
  11. Autumn starts on Tuesday. Was a little cooler today. Went out at 6.30am for a quick 232K (145 mile) lap. Home for breakfast before 10am. Looking forward to some cooler days.

  12. Just phone Suzuki Australia. Letters will be going out and we are getting the 2nd recall. Thanks for the heads up.
  13. No mention of it here yet but at least Suzuki are starting to do the right thing. I'm guessing its not a Suzuki part but one that's outsourced like calipers, tyres, ECU's etc. Still, its down to Suzuki to take responsibility for their suppliers. Much as I dislike the US's "we will sue you" attitude, it does set a presidence that makes it hard for other country's to ignore such issues. Many of our recalls start in the US and I'm not sure they would be so motivated without the "see you in court" culture.
  14. I recently worked out my bikes horn becomes "live" when the ignition is on. Obviously gets to sound by the button giving it earth. I ran a relay switched by the horn to feed my accessories (wasn't sure about overloading the horns feed) now any accessories are only fed when the ignition is on. Stops me being a dumb-arse and leaving stuff powered up and draining the battery. I'm piss-poor at electrics but it seems to be working.
  15. I've had a couple of bikes in the past that have been stood down / parked up due to holiday travel, work, weather, needing tyres etc. We being real busy (and lazy when I'm not) I rarely swap my trickle chargers from bike to bike. Busa and B-King with their immobilisers, relays, fuel pumps etc have been know to go "click" and not fire until I charge the battery's or frighten them with the jump leads. The mighty Bandit, crude and simple, might spin slow but it almost always fires up, cough's, and comes to life. Harder to kill than cockroaches...
  16. Today: An enjoyable morning. Went South for a change. Only a brief 285K's (177 miles) but I missed this mornings rain, had a nice breakfast, enjoyed some fun roads, and was home by 11.30am, just starting to get a bit warm.
  17. Today: 8 years and 3 months, still not bored with it yet... [url=http://postimage.org/[/url]
  18. Looking forward to our Winter. Winter here is cooler and dryer and better suited to riding. Today wasnt too bad tough... First ride of 2016...... [url="http://postimage.org/"][/url] [url="http://postimage.org/"][/url]
  19. Well, yesterday wasn't the last ride of the year! I managed to get a couple of hundred K's in this morning too. It was a bit cloudy but still dry and very warm. [img=http://s22.postimg.org/rqm7730e9/image.jpg] [img=http://s12.postimg.org/srni3o5m5/image.jpg]
  20. Managed to get out on the 14 today, scrub the new rear tyre in. Weather was nice, got in nice lazy 781K's (485 miles) Would have been more but I had to get back as I'd promised to go out tonight.

  21. Not to my taste, but I sort of understand the 4 cans, In the spirit of the old Z900 type exhaust... 6 cans just looks odd, unless your playing dress up and pretend on a 4 cylinder bike. I don't get it.
