  3. I wish I could have been there.
    How do you like the new tyres?
     
     Top
  4. Yeah good, probably should have deflated them during the rocky bits but I had no compressor to re-inflate them.

  5. Ahhh - was that you Zol on the Chocolate Mill run with the Strom and the Akrapovic?

    I was thinking - man that pipe sounds really nice on there......

    If I'd known it was you I would've come over to say G'day :D

  6. Cheers >>;] Where about were you in the line getting there? I also parked next to greybm, I was kind of overwhelmed by all the riders, haha, people everywhere.

  7. I have one, dad gave me one last week, I guess I can put it in the back pack, just need to replace the cig lighter plug. Also really slow, 0-24 took over 10 mins, not sure how it pump up a tyre from 20-38~.

  8. 20 to 38 tends to be much faster.
    Anto's one, had little alligator clips that connected directly to the battery terminals, it was very simple on his bike just neede to remove the seat. Took no more than 60s to connect up.

  9. I was down the bottom end of the car park behind the two white Aprilia RSV4's - I was one of the first out of the gate and ended staying up the front until I had to corner mark coming down the steep hill just as we were leaving Daylesford.......

    Never mind - catch you next time :D

  10. Hehe I'll +1 and just plug it in my cig lighter socket! >>;P

    Ahh ok, so that's when you probably saw me take off, I turned left up the road a bit, wow, that bit country side was pretty! The bridge photos was taken 10 mins into the gravel bits.
