Thanks for the welcome fellas.
Motorbikerx, you are right, Obi Obi is a great place. I rode my old Norton Commando up the valley when I was 25 (very long time ago now) and swore I'd be back. I bought 88 acres on the creek a year later.
is a clip of a run up the valley by a Brianbb63, dunno who he is. That's my daily ride to work.
That bike lift is only my roadside flat tyre lift, takes up less space in the saddlebags than a scissors jack. I get a lot of flats; some of the dirt roads around here have very sharp rock flakes in them, and I don't mind a bit of wheelspin on dirt. Flats with tubed tyres are a pain. There's a hydraulic lift in the shed.
Yes, guilty as charged to the car tyre rear, have about 60000 kms on them, some good, some bad. I think I remember you (your bike really), if you turned up to a shop ride with a mate with a nice quick High Ball.
That's a nice list of go fast on the Vegas, I'm sure it puts a smile on your face when you point it down the road and pull the trigger!
Yes, it's a pain that you have to go on Facebook to check out upcoming shop rides. I don't do Facebook either, but it will let you onto the Brisbane Vic/Indian shop site for long enough to check out upcoming events before you get thrown out for not being a member. I generally do that early each week.
The problem of going riding with bikes that mostly look like grandads bike is that most of the owners ride them like grandad. Hang on, I'm a grandad!
Andre, Batam Island looks a pretty place to ride; that suspension bridge gives a good view in Streetview. I'm sure it's mostly good riding weather apart from the afternoon rains. Never been there, but who knows what the future holds?
Thanks again for the welcome, I'll be back,Steve.
