    Call me a glutton for punishment, but another addition to the yard.

    I thought the fitting of a heel and toe was a neat idea on a agricultural bike.

    Very useful to stop muddy boots slipping up off the shifter when changing down.

    The old Honda Posties used them.

    This is what I call a chain saver.

    I am in Northern New South Wales.

    Byron Bay is the most Easterly point of Australia, I live in Casino where the blue dot is.

    The guy that bought my kdx is there. Sounds to me like he restores vintage bikes for a living.

    Well the DT 175 has gone to another home.

    Did a bit of fabricating today, made a bob weight to replace the broken one in the AG175.
    Hopefully it will start in the morning.
