This all sounds strangely familiar, ah yes, memories of the early 70s but directed at a group of islands off the Chinese coast. Back when mates were blowing up Bonnevilles running against Honda 4s with 810 big bores and Kawa triples. Those who wanted to play on more equal terms bought Tridents and Commandoes and were OK for a couple more years. Or like a group of RAEME blokes I knew who would run their BSA Lightning through the workshop for new rings and often rhs main and big end bearings after a couple of after midnight sessions for money out on Old Heathcote Rd.
Just watched the news. They suspect the cyber attack on Port Botany came from China.
I took my Sporty over to Fraser Island for 5 days, it was a bit silly. Still had a 19" front wheel on it then, but was running a pretty big 4.10 x 19 Dunlop K81 at 22 psi so gave a pretty big footprint up front, and there was no shortage of torque to lighten the front end a bit. I later took an XT600 Yam over there 2 up on one of my honey moons, which was a whole lot of mistakes wrapped up together, but 2 up the Yam was more of a handful on the loose sand inland tracks than the Sporty was solo.
Hard to pick up a Harley out on the trail...LOL
