    This trader must be pretty hard to outdo as far as optimism goes. Bike has been on the market for a year now, wonder when the penny will drop he''s dreaming at that price. You'd have thought after a year he might have got round to the little bit of tlc required to get running. ...

    Tag o rama!

    Thread Starter: Owl

    Rules are easy...and borrowed from Waikato! #1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose. #2 - Take the tag to a new location (location...

    Hi guys , Just bought myself my first full power bike, a 2011 Honda Cb600f Hornet. Love the thing, lots a fun! I have one issue with it, I'm only getting just over 200km from a full tank before the gauge starts flashing, I just want to know if this is normal. Apparently it has a 19 litre tank...

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save Merv doing it. Got a big shuffle in teams for this one boys, lets hope Ducati have finally cracked on to a good combination with Miller and Bags after so many years. I'm also hoping Aprilia will have fixed their engine gremlins from...

  • Suspension set up day/sausage sizzle with Shaun Harris 17/4/2010

    COME ENJOY A BARBY AND FREE SUSPENSION SETUP ADVICE AND WITH SHAUN HARRIS

    HERES THE DEAL
    come down to my place from 10.30 am on--- Ill have a couple of bags of sausages to cook up on the barby and tea n coffee for those that want a hot drink.You guys n gals can sit around and talk shit
    MEANWHILE
    SHAUN HARRIS will be in my gargre with his measuring tools ready to advise you on ways to improve your suspension from just simple adjustments through to -well thats up to you-- BUT the skys the limit.
    Guys n gals this is a rare opportunity to meet a man you KNOW might just have a couple of clues about suspension Just shutting up and listening to what he says will be an education in itself let alone the chance to get your bike transformed from an evil brute back into the bike you love.

    Shaun will measure up the sag settings on your bike, Shaun will then give you an educated opinion of what work you might need and what you may need or want doing, to improve your ride, and make it safer to ride.
    The idea is for you to come to my car/bike yard and talk with Shaun face to face, so You can work out any work different or related to a great offer he has going and as a way for determining if you need or want any work to be done, and to confirm bookings for any work in the future .
    Shaun will be based in the main workshop in the yard . Entry will be by the main back door

    As an aside when you get your bike back there is an IDEAL test ride route of 15km that WILL tell you if the bike is transformed--AND its just down the road.
    Please NOTE
    Car/Trailer parking is OVER THE ROAD in the carpark.
    BIKE PARKING is round the back of the workshop
    -Sorry I just dont have room for a bunch of cars/trailers/vans actually in the yard.
    .

    I'll fire up the ol barby in the arvo for anyone that wants to have a Sausage or two and just generally talk some shit .

      to any one that is thinking of going to this day do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      My bike handled not to well when I got it read heaps of suspnsion books had a few people look at it and not much difference.
      5 mins talking to Shaun about what the bike was doing and another 5 with his trusty measuring tape. I then took the bike for a ride and the difference was night and day the bike now handles really well on the track and road.
      Take the time to go this will be one of the best investments you can do for your riding.

      Oh I figured out instead of buying upgrades to make the bike go faster losing 5 kg on the rider has the same effect and is a lot cheaper!

      I don't want to change anything on my bike, but would be keen to come over and socialise. I'll have my 5 and 7 year old with me, so probably wont stay too long.

      When is the BBQ starting, and what can we bring along to help?
