    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Boots on the way - no rush as cyclone offshore…bit of a damper on riding already blowy bands coming through Cairns It’s blowing a bit now on the deck but the Cat 2 is well out to sea at this point - we are just in the outer bands not likely to lose power but possible as the damn thing is...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Scored some barely worn Alpinestars for $70 plus some shipping. Much better on the Burgman than the tall Gaerne Trials and cooler. Given up trying to find mesh pants here. Stick with good knee armour and tactical jeans. They dry fast enough and Burgman is protective to a point compared to KLR...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Yeah staff in Sauga was crowing about sunshine. Went out to the Bowls Club up the street last night with our family gang ...very busy - nice to see full tables and people enjoying themselves sans masks. When you swipe the membership card it location traces you. Very convenient. My Bluetooth...

    Simple Bluetooth Helmet Speaker Recommendation Needed

    You always need the correct tips for your ears. With a thin balaclava on can't see how they could possibly "fall out." Happiness,,,,,got my 215 BT headphones - finally riding with books and music and directions - easy fit under helmet ...easy pairing with the phone.

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Managed to get in a couple hundred k between rain showers. Tho two of my fav places were closed scored a burger in Palm Cove - dog is just now polishing off the remains of the fries. Lots of people out - Palm Cove is jammed often and mcycle useful for finding a park. Did not dodge the...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Certainly prices have jumped under new management but lunches $10 and seniors meals $12 is just fine. For those from Canada ...prices are always all in and no tipping so if it says $12 that's what you pay out of pocket. Aus dollar worth a bit less than Cdn. The kangaroo steak was $24.50 and just...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    He told me and I didn't recognise the marque so makes sense. He was happy got about $4k off new and something like 1300 km plus a ton of farkles. Since he retired as a pilot he's been loading up on toys....now I've added the Burgman 650 to his care stable. He's just tarting up his 2008 KLR for...

    Time to stop waving

    it's a bit more than a nod in this part of Aus. It's a nod/twist of the head saying "ain't it great". Never could quite get it.

    Ear plug recommendations?

    The Shures fit well as long as you rotate them to the proper orientation ...a thin balaclava makes on an off easy. I have a pair of Pioneer Rayz that are noise cancelling but they do not get the seal that the 215s with proper tips do. Happy to see BT version of the 215s tht functions with the...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    You got snow ?? We got the monsoon - think hours and hours of rain like you’ve never seen Trying my patience but windscreen almost here, oil filters arriving and mechanic wending his way back from Canberra on his new toy. Likely damp as he gets closer https://goo.gl/maps/mLY4wohHx4WCq4m97...

    Ear plug recommendations?

    A number of riders including me use the wired Shure 215s so I know it fits and sounds decent Just ordered a pair of the BT version - The bonus is it's the same ear piece so all the existing cables and tips we have are adaptable / interchangeable. For $149 I get the earphones I want with BT...

    Who's still riding? (Fall & Winter 2020 Edition)

    I pulled that off from St Kitts to Fort Erie on a snowstorm day they closed the QEW ....was riding the 305 Superhawk all winter anyways and slid and slithered the back roads for a couple of chilly hours....fell a few times. I did however have my licence and no cop showed.
