There is a lawyer here in Victoria in deep trouble at the moment, who had a leg on each side of the fence,  her name, Gobbo. I hear they're  making a movie about the saga. It's a tall order,  but that has the ingredients  for a better movie than Chopper.

Just another example of police incompetence in Victoria. Don’t know of any other informants who received compensation exceeding one million dollars. Also was involved in a relationship with one of the police officers.
Police should be held accountable for their conduct and they wonder why the public don’t respect them.....

I thought it was about what was done to the brick.  Reading between the lines I assumed the frustration just caused a frustrated, emotional outbreak involving a ball peen hammer and a gas tank.  I've heard a pebbly finish on a K bike fuel tank is all the rage now.

Finally replaced 35 year old rear disc at .14inch.  And split caliper for reconditioning.  And a Speigler.  Pucs coming tomorrow.  Interior piston was not retracting heating the disc too much.  Pistons retract now.  Busy busy.

I've been fighting a slow battery drain. So I figured if I got it to started, I'd be able to ride for 15 minutes and it'd charge and I'd be able to easily start it and ride away. Well I was wrong. Luckily I was able to get a push start and get the Brick running and ride it home from the meeting I was at. A humbling mistake and one I don't plan to repleat. I never considered how to push start a FI motorcycle but letting out the clutch and pressing the starter button got her fired up as I was pushed down the street.

I was considering riding to a meeting 4 hours from home but I'm reconsidering now.

Put more air in BOTH tires. 42 rear, 40 front. Looked at oil level at sight glass. It was ok. Plugged in battery tender out of habit. Got a beer out of garage fridge. It was cold so I drank it. Threw empty in trash. Shut garage door behind me. Went to bedroom and took a nap. Woke up later and typed this post.

So I ordered blanks from Bob's BMW in Maryland.  Today the locksmith duplicated the ignition key and they worked fine.  Just two plain steel keys.  The blanks were $51 including shipping and cutting was $14.  A lot cheaper than my Vespa key since it has a chip in it but still....

Went for a yeehaw ride on 2 wheels, and a workout ride on 2-wheels. The improved rack is much more solid (Reynolds and steel tray) than the aluminum Ver.1, and hauling the bike is not noticeable unless you grab a fistful of brake too aggressively.

Best part is, drivers notice you better with the bike than without, as 3 cars paced alongside so passengers could video and take pics on the motorway.

As a bike and Brick enthusiast, great design and use of the iconic Reynolds Rack #240 ver2.0.

Gawd aweful shame if that pretty Eddy Merckx become a projectile into oncoming motorist traffic or the like.
Check your insurance that could be a legal chitstorm waiting to happen.

Installed OEM Low Seat Kit from Eville Rich.  Great outcome.  Dawn patrol tomorrow with lower c/g and new radial Battlax T30s.  Question to those w low seat: latch actuator rod seems 1/2 inch too short.  Is there a parts diagram out there showing a fitting for the threaded end?

Thanks, criteria revolved around "legal, stable, light weight, ease of use."

Original 7-11 Corsa with first year Campy SR Ergo :) Roadraced 2 season's, and forgotten for 25+years in storage. It's heavy, but an unstoppable Beast on climbs and cornering.
My background is in legal, so making sure it's not citation worthy, or going to lose my house was a concern. Local Sheriff's keep a lookout while training around here, and think it's super cool. The rack also double's for carrying deer from the woods ... just to be "yooneek."

Why?

Curing Sloppy Clutch & Brake Levers
Why?
Well, in the case of my lever, the hardened steel nipple/barrel, has worn out the softer aluminium lever hole where it sits. I.e, it’s not round anymore, so now it’s a ‘sloppy’ fit. I’m sure not everyone’s is like this, but it is 30+ year old aluminium under a lot of friction. Yours may be in a better state, but an older one like mine, will eat clutch cables over time. I’ll take some pics of new V old when I get it, for comparison.
