More chance of me drinking VB!
Do they make VB for Men?
Thats one of the reasons i dont drink it......
Bahhaaa, you could always sit down.
Umm no thanks
Now thats what your bike is for......sadly like USA we grab 3 weeks A/L and try to see the whole country. Never gonna happen and you end up only seeing a fraction and forgetting most as you were only there breifly
Never say never. This is exactly what some of us did last year. 14,000 km lap in 18 days and about 213 pub stops. Not all journeys are about sightseeing. Some are about the ride, and what could be better than 3 weeks solid riding.
We've pushed the repeat button for mid April 2018. This time we will take and extra week and stretch the ride to over 18,000 km
And 300 Pubs.
Used mine on the 02 Heritage, 15 Fatty and now the 17 SG. Worked no probs on all three.
I think that qualifies you TJU. At least compared to me on my new bike. Let us know when you are in SA or thinking of coming close. Lot of the SA runs are into NSW or close to the Vic border. Many of the fellas reckon 1000k days are easy. You'd get the invite for a coldy
Can confirm 1000klm days are possible and then back up the next day. Daylight is your friend, it's very tiring at ni get with the wildlife in our big brown land
Well the new addition to the fleet is sitting proudly in the Garage ... 2017 Velocity Red Road Glide Special ... old Bike Lift used alreadt and as all you good people said , it worked fine ... had to get that pesky road dust off my new shiny wheels ... plus move the old foot shifter peg up an notch , could hardly get my foot under it to change gears .
Had a couple of terrifying moments on way home ... we live an hour away from Gasoline out west of Brisbane ... proberbly the worst winds i have ridden in for years , there was even talk of shutting down the Brisbane airport due to severe crosswinds ... not ever have ridden a bike with such a large fairing before , except a couple of small fairings on Jap bikes let me tell you it had me thinking i had made a mistake getting a bike with such more area of mass for the wind to push .
Came past a truck on the right side , truck on left concrete wall on right ... wind caught me and i missed the wall by the most a foot ... PHARK ... another time , me in left lane car in right lane , came out of a cutting and again just missed this little old lady ... talk about heart in the mouth time .
Reckon it didn`t help with the 14" High Ball Burliegh Bars that are on it , the combination of me not being used to riding with Ape Bars having always had Low and wide bars and of course with my armrs sticking up in the air the wind was not only pushing against a greater area of mass with the Fairing and sadle bags but also the great lump of lard sitting behind the bars , would have been like a huge paracute ... don`t see the Bars lasting the duration of me owning the bike ... reckon i will drop back to the 9" Chiseled Harley Bars they have on offer ... but will give them a chance first before making any rash discissions ... have a 7 to 8 hundred K`s ride locked in for next weekend so that should hopefully give me a greater idea of how i like the ride postion .
For the people who have continued to read through my ramblings i had a technical question for the good folk out there ... when i got the bike one of the things that attracted me was the Chrome Turbine Wheels , front and back ... now as you are all aware the standard rear wheel is a 16" ... the rear Turbine they put on is a 18" ... the profile of the tyre is lower than the standard rear tyre but would anyone know how much of a difference in trye profile there would have to be so the speed would regiseter the same as stock ... the last thing i want is to be cruising along at what i think is a 100 K`s and am really doing 110 or whatever the difference might be ... had changed the pully size on one of my other rides and had installed a speed sensor adjuster but was never a real fan of it , never got it to be totally precise .
So the new adventure begins ... have already bookmarked a dozen or so pages in the latest catolouge for things i want to add or change ... one of these days i am going to find the bottom of my wallet and i am going to be broke ... But Happy ... Hopefully , Lol .
Well going to rock the boat here...... fuck off the high bars first, you will feel much better in the wind and twisty bits as well as more relaxing on a decent ride. These bikes can do back to back 1000klm days but only if you're cummpy on it. Enjoy
Nothing wrong with apes. I did the odd big day with them on my Road Glide.
Perhaps your name of lofty bob may help your decision here.... were not all 7 foot tall
That was China's quote, not mine.
They have a digital readout as well as the analogue speedo Steelo, but work off the same sender as speedo not GPS.
My opology lofty
Too many Bintangs.
And am I paying the price today! Not sure what hurts more my head or my arse, gone beyond the wiping stage now just dabbing lightly and about to look for an ice pack!!
