Hey ya all
You are correct miguelito, I wont be riding at night, its way too dangerous.. the animals in Tassie are feral!! lol A lot of animals come out at night and I just couldn't bear the thought of hitting one of them .. or them hitting me. We shall be off the roads by dusk. Just safer all round.
Saw a post on advrider about a guy riding round tassie and he did a skinny dip in the ocean at the top end of Tassie... I laughed and thought man he was keen and then thought.. hmmm.. what a great thing to do.. so that is on our agenda... no photos necessary of that bit I think. My b/f might get embarrassed esp if its too cold hahaha
Hi Andreas...Sliders are already fitted. I made sure they came with the bike before it got trailered out of the shop. This is my first bike ever and I didn't want to scratch it too badly, as i just knew i would drop it at some stage. and guess what? second day i layed it down on a corner and it saved so much damage on the bike. They got scratch and the barkbuster hand guards but nothing else. Money well spent. I have given up worrying about dents and scratches, as I am sure by the time I get back from Tassie, there will be a few more to add to the collection. Nothing of course dine by me, just just by stone chips etc. I dont plan on laying the bike down again... well that's the plan.
I have just recently added to my V a perspex headlight protector.. nice fit and moulded to the light which is great. looks good..
A Givi windscreen. no more wind noise and head buffeting.. which is also great
Next month, or possibly this month, will see a radiator guard, skid plate, fender extender and rear mud slinger..
I think I am good to go!!!
