  1. g'day , i've just joined the forum so i thought i'd jump straight in say hello.(hello!). i'm the proud owner of a 05 vt750c honda shadow. i've just clocked over 20,000 klm's since sept 05 . the bike is set up to tow a trailer i built for long distance touring.all i need to do now is save enough dough to go on those long tours. until that happens i'll have to stick with weekend rides.until next time ride safe,

  10. Welcome Missing link!

    There are very few Netriders down our way unfortunatly, It's good to have someone else hanging around!
  11. Great Z650 ML - those bikini fairings are just so part of that era


    Nice Shadow as well - where did you get the trailer? What is its weight?

  12. Welcome to NR missing link hope ya enjoy the forum. Love the Zed.
  13. G'day, Toecutter. I built the trailer myself, it weighs 80 kg's empty and I try to run it at about the 130 -150 kg mark. No trouble towing at the speed limit , and the fuel consumption seems to have stayed about the same. In the mountains it suffers a little, but then I'm not in a hurry.
