I lashed out!

Yeah, I now have a new tank bag (thanks Gregg) - the old one was getting a bit sad after nearly 8 years of daily use. I also have winging to me (well it's with Australia Post , so winging is probably not quite correct) a set of Hepco and Becker "street" panniers and the CBow mounts - should be here Friday.

Last year on the way back from the Budgie, I went through some roundabouts just on the south side of Tamworth, I had to really struggle to get it back up after one of them as I leaned almost to the point of no return. 2 x 50 litre bags makes the bike a bit top heavy, lowering the centre (spelt correctly too) of gravity will do wonders for luggage bound trips. Dang, I can try it out in 4 weeks - yee haa!

Well it's good to lash out - and your 'lashing' makes sense, as does your spelling! Very Happy

Be interested to see pics when all set up! Cool

Actually, it took the best part of an hour, using the destructions instructions that came with it. it only had a (very rough) picture of the right hand C-Bow mount, which I could not get mine to look like the picture for quite a while (I know, slow as a wet week).

Anyway, all came together eventually. The C-Bow painted bits are good quality, the fasteners, I think, are zinc plated. These will get replaced by Stainless (maybe tomorrow) and spring washers instead of the flat - don't want a fully loaded pannier to have a different journey than the one I had planned for it, do I now?

Awsum stuff Tony.
Illawarra fasteners in unanderra are always good and helpful for bits and bobs of the stainless stuff.

Remember where I work Ralf? should be "off the shelf". You are not venturing north in 4 weeks are you?

It all makes sense.

Work said no!
No point butting heads with blue scope at the moment.

For a one day consolation prize, the Guzzi club is heading southwards from Heathcote on Sunday 23rd.

9am for a 9.30 departure from the southbound Caltex - yes I know it's late, but it will be the morning after a night before. We didn't know the route on Tuesday night, but it should be known by the Saturday.
