    Just keep moving about every 1hr or so to get the circulation going, stretching etc, you'll be right...could always suggest to the missus to join the mile high club as a form of DVT prevention :D

    its up to you when we ride but sunday 24th would be cool the forecast is for perfect riding weather
    you would need to find your way to Drouin 1 hour east of Melbourne all freeway easy drive
    you will be at least 1/2 hour west of melb so all up about 1 and a 1/2 hours drive you would need to be up early
    see if you can borrow a mobile phone for the day and a GPS to help find your way
    call me when ever you like once here and we will discuss options
    TE 310 all preped and ready to go for ya

    if you ever had enough time we could ride for weeks and link melbourne with sydney through bush the whole way
    anyway it was a great days riding , you did well keeping up on a foreign (to you) bike
    hope all goes well for the rest of your time in aus

    I was impressed by the 4 stroke 310 the power delivery is smooth but firey quite similar to my 360 power wise wich shocked me i was expecting it to be flat and heavy, pleased i didnt hold you up!
    Thanks for showing me a few of your mates places the madmax guys were awesome.

    I will keep you posted no worries, am going to get sim today so dont be suprised if you get a text from a random number.
    Hope the bike came up alright as it was immaculate when you handed it over to me.

    cheers for the beer mate, im up to can number 8 as I type this! bit more rain before hand would have made the riding bit easier on ya(gets grippier/holds together better) but cant complain bout the weather eh! next time wel get up to the hills & the clay soil not sand. the old 300 came up alright after a bit of a wash & some tweaking haha. il post up about that clutch adjustment but reckon ill just go the whole hog(basket, hub, steels, fibres & springs & that shaft thingy-everything bar the pressure plate pretty much!) from BMP or Halls sometime in the future. shel keep on keeping on for a bit longer yet I reckon-husky tough!!!;)

    ps might look at getting the rmz or yzf fender(whichever fits better) for the more modern look so ill check out ebay. :D

    pps still having visions of you nearly endo'ing that log jump/drop off!:eek: you were hooking along pretty nicely today in that single-I was working to stay on ya rear wheel! was a good coupla days mate, glad you enjoyed it & hope you missed the traffic on way home:cheers:
