  1. Well my wife’s Miata can beat you on the mileage but unfortunately loses dismally on the time it took to accrue them. 2001 NB with 110,000 KM on the clock. No major issues yet. Although from the rotten egg smell we occasionally get when we park it in the garage I think it needs a new catalytic converter.
  2. Correct, Terrigal is in New South Wales Australia. A little north of Sydney.
  3. Thanks for that Grum, I won’t be doing it myself but I use an ex Honda mechanic who will be happy for me to supply the chain and sprockets, and the best part is he charges very reasonable rates AND is happy for me to watch and learn. Great bloke whose (nick) name is Grub.
  4. Cleaned, lubed and adjusted the chain which now has 40,500km on it (original chain) I think it is finally giving in, I noticed a couple of O rings that are starting to fail. Still I’m pretty happy with its mileage. Just starting to wear on the rear sprocket, front will of course be worse so will replace both.
  5. He’ll be fine it’s a Honda 😂
  6. Just a few photos from this mornings ride. Rode to the lookout atop Mt Stuart, always a nice view. We then rode around the Mt Elliot National Park (hills in the scenery shot). Unfortunately there was a bit of fog around (was once again reminded not to open your visor if you wear glasses 🥴) Such fantastic riding weather otherwise.
  7. Just had a look at a new BMW R1250 RS, I couldn’t take it for a demo as it was sold but just having a sit on it for a few minutes had me thinking. The seating position is slightly more upright than the VFR and the footpegs definitely felt lower. It was the sports model, full electronics and Akropovic exhaust. Also had full luggage kit on it. I have never ridden a boxer engine but have read some very good reports about the new shift cam engine, it’s smoothness and torque (145Nm I think, and 135hp) Of course there is still the Elephant (Blue Whale maybe) in the room $35,000😳🤯 However if money was no object I think I would find room in my garage for one of these. This is a very good video to demonstrate the sportiness of the RS. BMW R 1250 RS sound [RAW Onboard]
  8. Finally clocked up 40,000km 🐌 didn’t think it would take this long, hopefully the next 40,000km won’t take as long.
  9. While I think this mod looks great ( I would do it for the looks alone) I have never noticed a problem with bugs getting through this gap? Is the main issue getting hit by the bugs or having to clean bugs from a hard to reach area.
  10. Dutch Colonies in the 1800’s and 1900’s. And before you feel insulted Dutchy I was born in England, need I say more. The world is still a screwed up place mate, and unfortunately I sadly suspect it always will be.
  11. I can only dream😍 If you go to the auction site there are some very high quality photos of this bike. Only a couple of days left guys and girls. Did you get the ten you ordered from those long lost RC30’s found in that warehouse Grum? 😂 If not here’s another chance mate.
  12. No black cats, broken mirrors or ladders around your house mate? They say bad luck comes in three’s so you should be OK now🤞. Any way much better than having an accident, especially when you have your partner on the back. Best of luck getting her on the road again (the bike I mean)
  13. Didn’t quite get that far on the North Coast of Spain, made it as far as San Sebastián and Bilbao. The mountains in your photo look very similar to a mountain range in the South of Spain called The Serrated Mountains (Montserrat) thought for a moment I’d picked the spot. Had about three weeks in The Netherlands (Holland😳)in 2000 and we loved it, especially the Poffertjes, ate too many.
