The real "them and us" ought to be reserved for things like dirt bikers vs those who'd like to close down all the places we ride. Struth, if we can't even manage to stick together within a group of people who own the same make of bike, then never mind the forum, we're all doomed in general, DOOMED I TELL YOU!
Quite right, that's why I have been a member of the Blue Ribbon Coalition for many years now and contribute monthly to their legal action fund.

Re: Is the site healthy?

My FE570 does looks fine and dandy in my garage I can't see it getting sold for anything, I just took another look and I can't get behind where you are going "piece of crud" . They just look the part the new LDC's.
I am keen on a 08 450 but am broke after wacking $16K on the 570. More like $17K with the added bling and Subframe Tank. It's a little bit fancy now

hey, don't take any offence to the dribble i wrote the other night davo.
i done it all with a smile on my face.
if the splitcase model bergs were better,they would be racing them in world enduro,but they are not,so they can't be.
it's as simple as that.
i still recon they have gone 3 steps forward & 1 step back, but hey... thats better than going the other way around.
hey davo, 9 of us went over fraser island 2 weeks ago for a 2 day ride,it was fantastic,plenty of riding to be done over there.the taylor is still on, so make sure you bring the surf rod.you just gotta jag the right weather, but hey... it never rains in sunny queensland,does it
give those backpackers a wide berth in those landcrusier troopcarriers.
mate they are shocking, they get all cross rutted & out of control all the time.
i can't bear to watch them.its a wonder more arn't killed.
well,if i would have had a ldc berg,i wouldn't have had the problem of swallowing the carby slide plate when i was right at the tip of sandy cape then would i?
lay $hit on you sometime soon ..weed..
ps...i'm going over there again next week for a working holiday for a day job,but i think i could run into some problems & be forced to drag it out to 2 days
lifes tough at the top

Re: Is the site healthy?

Hi Weed,
I had a good laugh reading your post Sunday. Especially the bit about selling a 2010 for a 2001
Just realised today you live near Fraser. Lucky Bugga!
Yeah saw a few bogged Backpackers last time I was up there. That is always a great laugh. They have just got no idea and I canít mention what country they are from it might ark up again on UHE
We all hope one another get bogged when we are there, so we can take the piss out of the make of car (Nissan Toyota rivalry thing).
I took the beach rod last time but never caught a fish either, seen plenty of Dolphins, stingrays and fish. My other mates that are going are toying with the idea of taking the bikes but I don't think it will eventuate, it's suppose to be a family holiday, plus I think mine might get nicked out front of Seaworld on the way home
It would be good to ride with you, Berglsmerg, Steve and Bushie and the other ozzies one day but I think we all live too far away from each other. Plus I wouldn't like to get hit by a rock out the back of Bushies Tyre, reckon that might put you in a coma for a couple of years

Good luck fixing your little trolley thing with wheels.
Davo.

Re: Is the site healthy?

I'll be over in QLD about this time sometime in the next 5 years or so.

My brother makes the trip over every year and runs his hayabusa1300/cr500/rmz250 hybrid in the Kungurri hillclimb near Mackay. he reckons my bike would be perfect for the hill, I reckon Weeds would kick arse too.

I just gotta build a house and all that boring stuff first and I'll toddle on over with my brother for a run up the hill and meet you guys for a Bush ride, Frazer sounds like my cup of tea.

If the hayabusas in front Davo forget about my roost the 700 is a wee lil kitten she only sprays out bum fluff compared to the 1300

Re: Is the site healthy?

this is a bit off the original subject,but while i got ya bushy...
just on the subject of that chain you broke.
the local bike shop recons,the the rk 520exw is the go for anything with a bit more hp than the average.
i had trouble with the regina's,the quality of the chain seems ok,it's just that some of the links seems to go stiff.
not long after that they will break at the stiff link.i done 1 on the 500 & another on my berg.
dunno i think its the grease they use between the links or the lack of it ,& that was the top of the range $180 regina.
i changed back to a d.i.d & got a pretty good run out of it,it was on its last legs and the split link broke,but still it was better than the regina.
i remember when the regina broke it nearly hit a mate who was following me.he ducked & thought it was a branch i flicked up.
that would be nice wouldn't it, being lassooed around the neck by a flying regina
i've only done about 4 months on the rk so it's still not proven yet,but its suppose to be the duck nuts,costs about $180 aust
..weed..

Re: Is the site healthy?

hey Weed

the sites healthy it seems as long as the Aussies can keep up the banter... we can take it

I just got an RK EXW from rockymountain ATV we'll see how long it lasts

Reckon you're onto it with the dry kinks, lube is good. the link that broke was dry didn't come off just happened to see it looked funny when i put a new chain slider on the s arm and noticed the carnage from where its tried to mate with the clutch slave.

I ran a 50T rear with the first chain instead the 40 that I run now so its got more tension with the 40, if it happens again I''l go to a bigger rear again.

good to know someone else can break em whoda thought it be you eh?

The chain came off the bike in front of me at a track day years ago, and for a second I thought he'd run over a snake as it wriggled along the track.

Lassooed around the neck by a flying what? Oh sorry, I see now it says REgina.

Hey Petem, you should ride in Australia we have the top 9 worlds most deadliest snakes. Some of them love laying on the tracks asleep soaking up the sun. You learn to move your legs off the pegs real quick when you run them over. Some of them would probably kill you quicker than being hit by the flying REgina (I'm not touching that joke ) chain.

Going for a micro force ride on friday, two LDC's and a 07 sikfiddy, it has been pissing down with rain at home last night so firiday morning conditions will be near to perfect, throw a chunky new konbby into the mix and there will be power wheelies all over the shop . If jap bikes come along is it still a force ride or turkey shoot ?
