Thanks. I've worked hard on it, but I don't think it really shows. Yeah, the shock spring is just what ever Penske provided. I think it's an Eibach. The forks are Showa from a 748 with Penske internals.

We have one guest bedroom with a queen sized bed. We can only accommodate two people, but let me know in private first if you're serious.

Here's a video of my bike warming up:

Yep, the same bike that's in the For sale section:(. I love my old 900 but it's time to move on and buy something a bit more ergonomic for 2 up sport touring. Ah yeah, a new 1200 Multistrada........................

oldscratcher u left one of the gilles out
Yeah, sorry. It's my daily ride (& my favourite range road). But I rarely stop for photos. Unlike my recent range-riding holiday, where I stopped at every photo-op. Here's a couple of old shots of Heale's lookout, on the Gillies.


This is another great local range, which runs between the Atherton & Evelyn Tablelands, & is known locally as Gentle Annie

& here's a pic of the rig I took south to ride the range roads.

I covered 8K klms in the van, & 4K klms on the bike, in 25 days.
Best holiday EVER!

It wasn't all solo riding. I hooked up with these recidivists on the Gold Coast, who showed me some fantastic roads in the hinterland.
