    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Lovely ride up to Mossman ...very little wind, very little traffic. Stopped to check for the resident croc on the way but he must be off in the swamp wooing the ladies. Treating myself to an iced coffee at my fav workspot in Mossman. Good internet, comfie chairsand pretty views of a nice small...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Extricated the bike from the backyard and off for an early ride shortly. ( 9 am maybe ) Very little wind and a somewhat humid 25 going to 31...typical Cairns weather for October. Might do The Tableland just for the cooler temps but ...hey the Pacific is reasonably cool and decent shade all the...

    Honda NT1100

    It was never in the US but did very well in Europe and UK even challenging BMW numbers in Germany. Few farkles available in North America for Canadian riders and the damn tank was too small for touring so was not a progression from the ST1100. 5 stage adjustable windscreen is good on the NT1100...

    How's your mileage been so far ?

    10,000 km on the CB300F since May which surprised the heck out of me. All day trips 100 km - 400 km. Adds up. Used to do 3k km on a long weekend on the CBF1000 or any of the Vstroms or Burgmans but speed limits lower here and have not done any overnight so 10k on daily rides I'm pleased with...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Damn just set up my monthly log for mileage and realised just under 10k km since mid May ! - 6 months. Now won't get that the next 6 months as wet and hot but still pretty pleased and a couple reasonable months still to go before the wet sets in. Get up early and go to the Tablelands drops temps...

    ADV fad

    I shudder to think where I took my late 60s 305 Hawk in the Hamilton clay pits including a few airborn episodes my knee still reminds me about. One of the guys at uni parked his 175 Honda by riding it up three flights of inside stairs on a regular basis. They were light and tough. Watched my...

    What gear do you wear?

    The Hwk gear I'm wearing has 600 denier on the likely wear areas but the result is very light flexible pants and jacket with excellent cooling for the emerging 30-36C daily weather. I'm considering upgrading the knee armour from the supplied CE1 to D30 CE2 and hope it will not impact the...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Taking low maintence to the edge. Regina has been making chains forever and the tech is solid. Mine is on the way.. https://www.asphaltandrubber.com/products/bmw-m-endurance-chain/ With the low power and weight of the CB300F, new Pilots front and rear, fresh full synthetic and filter plus...

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    Good Bday ride, lots of twists, not much traffic at all and much cooler at 1170 meters. Got some decent shots of jacaranda trees ...glorious solid mauve..all over the place up in the area. and a family of curlews in a busy spot.

    Down Under on a KLR 650

    A tropical Bday present showed up on the bedpost ...since returned safely to the rain forest back yard. Lovely ride again up the Gillies and took it easy as little traffic and no rush. 27 at 10 am even high up on the tableland at Ravenshoe- was good to get out early …no choice these days. Even...

    What did you do in your garage today..?

    The sensors are not heavy at all. That T-valve might be. I don't bother with the lock nuts as the bike is in a gated compound and never out of my sight when riding plus no kids hanging about. That's a good price. I paid $60 for mine with screen and it works well tho screen is hard to read in...

    What did you do in your garage today..?

    TPMS charging cable found. The handlle bar mount broke but unit sits visible in the tank bag map cover. One new bolt found, rack cranked into place with even torque, Locktite Blue AND lock washers. (y) Front tire, rear brake pads, OEM sprockets ordered and Regina chain enroute. Be nice if it all...

    What GPS & mount do you run or are you a phone or paper map rider?

    Only if they are in enclosed space under plastic. If mounted on the bars with airflow they do not overheat in my experience and I'm in constant mid 30s and up here in tropical Australia with very strong sun. We rode three weeks in the west between 15C at the top of Beartooth shown here to...

    What did you do in your garage today..?

    Kudos to Shad and Ridge Living ...the replacement rack arrived today. Pretty damn impressive. New portable compressor worked the charm to bring tires up to 32 from a drop to 28. fine with that tho have managed to misplace the little USB charging cable that came with the TPMS 😩

    Kawi dipping a toe in EV - Electric Ninja

    Will be a while for EV tourers. Between regulations and losing sales to EV scooters some bridge is needed.

    Damn 27 and a bit muggy but strong sun at 9 am. 🥵 Going to 32 feels like 36. I actually considered a night ride last night when it was 22 but maybe too many critters about. Talked to Jude about a road trip to Kakadu National Park ( Yellow Water ) which was wonderfu. Too hot she says....then too...
