  1. Thanks for everyone’s interest, the wheels have been sold. Not sure how I feel about that.
  2. https://www.yamaha-motor.com.au/products/motorcycle/road/sport-heritage/xsr900. I reckon this is you FP
  3. The simplicity of the Tenere attracts me, no rider modes etc. Just click her into gear and away you go.
  4. Haven’t ruled it out, but at approx 230kg, that’s a lot of bike to pick up if I drop it. I would probably be okay the first time...
  5. Yes mate, of course you can, but it better be soon, seriously considering replacing it with a Tenere 700

    Im Back...

    Good to have you back Ronnie, I may have to visit more frequently
  7. I had the pleasure of racing with Dave at IMWA in 2009 and meet him again at IMOZ. A true loss, it’s a sad day.

    Argon E-112 Small

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say, it’s red, so you know it goes faster!
  9. I bought these in 2009 to race IMWA and did a few halfs on them, but they have been sitting in the shed for too long and it’s time for them to go. VGC. They come with a Zipp Titainium rear skewer, sorry the front one is MIA, and wheel bags. The wheels are in Shepparton Victoria, they can be delivered to Melbourne or posted at the buyer’s expense. $1,000 firm. Still the fastest wheel set on the planet.
  10. Finally getting around to clearing the Tri-gear. This was my race bike, so I didn’t do a lot of training on it. Purchased in 2009, from Otter when he had Cyclespeed in Brighton Melbourne. I used it in IMWA 2009 and a few half IMs after that. It has sat in the shed since my last race at IMNZ 2012. The running is is Shimano Durace 9 speed with profile carbon cranks. It could easily be converted back to a road bike or updated to 10 or 11 speed. Very good condition for it age. The wheels are TWE alloys and I guarantee they have the best hubs you will ever experience. The lowest rolling res
  11. Finally getting around to clearing the Tri-gear. This is my wife’s Argon E-112. Purchased in 2009, it was Stacey’s race and training bike, so it has plenty of Km’s on the clock, but is in good condition for it’s age. It comes with Shimano 105 10 speed running gear and pedals, Flashpoint 50mm Carbon clincher race wheels and Mavic Aksuim alloy training wheels. Stacey’s last race was 2015 IMOZ and she hasn’t touched the bike since. All you need to start your triathlon journey. $700 the lot. I will throw in a double wheel bag if you buy the complete package. The bike is in Shepparton Vic, i
  12. Our condolences to you and your family Paul.
  13. You should have got the deluxe model, with the milk crate as standard.
  14. Yes, I have recently discovered him, a great time waster, but I have a lot of time to waste in stage 3 lockdown
  15. Come and visit Ian and you can have a go on the Ninja, or CRF.
  16. Any preference Dalai? Always been pretty keen on the Fire blades myself, but the Ninja is a lot more comfortable, but plenty of options in the 1k super bike category
  17. The Ninja 1000SX I have had for a few years now, fantastic all rounder, sports tourer. The CRF 450L is the latest addition, it took a bit of doing as I didn’t want to sell the Ninja. The goal for the CRF is to adapt it to a light adventure bike to do a bit of dirt and camping.
  18. Matthew Keenan tweeted no Froome or Thomas for team Ineos for the tour. I am too much of a tech numpty to copy and paste the tweet.

    My personal view, it would be highly irresponsible to bring together 10s of thousands of people from all over the world, into a confined environment (the Olympic village) for an extended period of two weeks. Given that fit young people are likely to be asymptotic, when infected, that would be a recipe for disaster.

    I would prefer a refund as it is unlikely we will be flying anywhere for the foreseeable future. We aren’t frequent travellers anymore. But thanks everyone for your responses.
  21. Hymie


    I am happy to wait.

    We were invited to a wedding in Bali in May, now Jetstar have cancelled all international flights, I have applied for a refund via online. Anyone have any experience on how successful getting a refund out of Jetstar might be?
  23. Is Brady to Tampa Bay the biggest shock in the NFL, since I don’t know when? I never thought he would leave the Pats. Will the Pats rue trading Garroppolo to the 49ers? Is this the end of the Belichick dynasty?
  24. It would appear few are going to miss Chieka. I am still not sure if it was the coach or the cattle, most likely a combination of both. The only real world class player we seem to have is Pocock, and even he threw a crucial intercept pass. My biggest bug bear was the consistent handling errors and dumb decision making when we got close to the try line. Example we got within 1-2 metres of England’s and just continued to bash against their defence until we inevitably turned it over. When we finally went wide to Kafusi, the pass was appalling, he has to wait flat footed and never got going.
  25. Generally at least 3 sides to every story, your version, my version and what really happened. 😉
