    Had a bit to do today... @GreyImport came over with some new spark plugs, discovered a bad fuel hose and a leaky fuel tap. Got some new hose, clamps, and inline filter from supercheap after doing the plugs. A quick stop at the RMS for a new number plate and then over to the fizzer factory to do the fuel line bits and have a cuppa.

    Brian took the bandit for a spin up the street and back, too.

    Both of us got a case of wet bum from the seat soaking in water through the seams into the foam... going to have to do something about that!

    Rode from Tamworth to Bellingen on Sunday. It was very cold - wish I fitted the heated grips before leaving Sydney.

    A 2nd hand rear shock has been ordered. I also have a ventura rack kit waiting for me back at work.

    Also ordered a few misc bits and pieces from megazip like fuel tank rubbers, footpeg bits and so on, along with all the gaskets needed to valve clearances - that is going to be a big job when I get around to it.

    don't envy you on that ride. Sunday morning in Tamworth at 7:30am it was 1 degree outside
