    Hi jav,

    welcome aboard. There's a few Australians here. Though I have no idea whether or not they're close to you.

    We'd be glad to hear more details about your bike, modifications, etc. Also what kind of terrain and climate you're dealing with. How law enforcement treats you. things like that. Photos would be good, too.

    last couple of days have been around 100f. Terrain, anything from good roads to tracks through the long grass on old cattle droving tracks. Law enforcement , so far so good. Modifications, the normal so far, match exhaust and intake, next step up compression.
    Will take some pics in the nextcouple of days.

    A hundred degrees Fahrenheit........

    Yes, I think that's happened here in North America too.

    But it's been so long that I can't be sure if it's a false memory or not..........:)

    welcome jav --------- ride that THING

    welcome jav

    yes -- that's smoking hot
    out here in southern Calif in the deserts get close to that sometimes
    if riding for long periods in 120f -- any extra plans for your engine
    such as maybe --
    the best 2-stroke oil that you can buy ?
    going to stay to the rich side while running in very hot weather ?

    just some thoughts -- have fun as you ride that THING

    don't think the will let me take my bike with me, it's a fly in, fly out job. 24 days on, 9 days off. Never been on a plane and I'm 38y old, not looking forward to the flying part.

    ride that flying THING

    my buddy took his bicycle with him on the plane a while back
    he had bought this plastic bicycle carrying case
    from what I remember
    we had to remove at least one wheel
    then we just packed that baby up

    it was a very strong case
    be fun to have your MB with you

    good luck with that first fly job

    ride that flying THING

    speedo is a huffy from kmart, works good till you start the motor and goes straight to 99km. 66 thunderbird is my next project. think it will be cheaper to run the bike.
    Bris boy, I'm on the other side of town at Walloon.
