Aunty Mavis (world famous Agony Aunt)

Now Allen my boy (sorry she doesn't know "boy" is no longer considered a term of endearment)

These are real dilemma's that you are dealing with, of course family is important and comes first but getting out on your bike is also good, it makes you into the best man that you can be, for your family. (I don't mean those over weight (sorry politically incorrect) under powered bikes, where you sit on the side of the road and brew coffee but we are talking about your Enduro weapon, where you go hard and then drink beer.

A mega shrimp dealer once said "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get"

Al, my boy (sorry) small steps and deal with each chocolate as you open it. before you know it, "Bob's your uncle" (or your Aunty, we don't want to stereo type Bob) You will be making decisions that you feel good about and also keeping everyone happy.

This is a free expert service from Aunty Mavis.

Just checking with the experts.

What is more important.....
A great ride after the rain or
Family commitments....

Seems to me that it rarely rains but family is there all of the time.

Sorry, just having commitment issues, I should be more committed to my riding!

Aargh, keen to ride but need to take my daughter to the airport to give her a pep talk prior to a 6 week Europe tour.

Bunga, I am a big fan of cubes, open the throttle as much as you need and lower revs means less wear and maintenance.

Hey Mick,
I had a 530 myself and it was super hard work but chatting to a few people they said add the remap to reduce the aggressive output so I will ring the mechanic tomorrow to run this past him. Was looking for a 450 but nothing secondhand in this condition.
Cheers

Bunga I had a 525 and the first half of the throttle is nice and mellow and well suited to the average rider, but if you choose to use the second half of the throttle it can scare the shit out of a good rider.

Patience is a virtue Eddy. Ride is on for Saturday meet at the lakes at 8:00 to then drive to the parking spot out east. Will be around 85klms of twisty stuff. Plenty of rain so it should be good.

Good to see the rain has arrived. Was starting to worry Capel was going to be a dust bowl.
