So.... I bought another bike...
Needs some work, but $50 is ok buying
PW50 or PY50 (China)
I paid around that for my son's old PW, but it was in worse condition
I think it's a py, no Yamaha on cases, the vin starts with an "L."
Not quite bike (but I did some more on the Bavarian Money Waster) but bike carrier.
My little bike trailer that I built some time ago needed to be lengthened as I wanted to make it enclosed and lockable for a few trips planned for next year. I extended the front by 400mm, made a bigger and stronger headboard covered with padded aluminium from an old caravan, welded in a stub axel to mount the spare wheel and hub and gave it another coat of paint.
I used 20x20x1.6mm square tube to make the frame and a heavy strip hinge along the front.
I found two used 40mm air cylinders in my son's shed and fitted one to each side. I used an old 9Kg gas bottle for the air tank and a two way valve from the engineering shop.
I covered in with aluminium sheet pop riveted to the frame. I also used same sheet to finish the floor.
A few small things to finish off yet. It gives great access to load the bikes and when down and locked the bike is completely out of sight and waterproof. Just two bolts and a few tek screws and it is back to an open trailer.
Tilting the canopy is a bit different, but as you say, gives you better access. Though 20mm box seems a bit small, but I guess once the panels are on, and if you have locators, should be pretty solid. Looks good, might be worth stealing your design! :-D
Also, intrigued by the trip you're alluding to... Maybe to land of crows and salt?
Finally got some time off work, and time to work on bikes (amid the family gatherings). I got a bit of work done on brakes yesterday: KDX rear brake and VTR front brake disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. The VTR master cylinder was taken off the bike I got recently and I saw the red fluid in sight glass. I assumed it was DOT 5, until I went to wash it out and it didn't mix with water - suspect it's ATF fluid. But cleaned it all up, bled it up, worked it for a while and it is working fine - though I did modify the lever as it didn't seem to return far enough. I thought the rear master cylinder on VTR was frozen, too, but it was just air. Sorted a couple of other things and VTR just needs a pair of mirrors for a roadworthy. Then sell! Or I could keep it, they're not a bad a bike..
The KDX is assembled, but no fluid and not on the bike. But I might pull the bike down, instead. However, I am tied up for the next few days, so nothing will get done this year.
down 6 demerit points.
Did you get done speeding or something ?
In SA we start off with 0 point's, so if we are done speeding or go through a red light camera etc you gain point's on your licence.
Once you gain 12 point's on your licence you lose it for a minimum of 3 month's
It is Double Demerit points currently in NSW... so that would be a normal 3 point indiscretion... no excuses at this time of year.
We get 12 points and you lose them as and when you get pinged. It takes 2 years for those points to get back onto your license and it can affect your insurance as well.
Gaining or losing makes no real difference... especially when it is Double Demerits.
heavy accelerater and the points last 3 years so i have to be a good boy[if possible- have lead a charmed 7 years without a ticket].
3 years is it, haven’t been booked in over 20 years. I thought it was 2.
What was that, 10kph over the limit but under 20?

yeh, but could have pinned me at another 5
Just don't pay the fine and keep driving/riding even if you don't have a licence...seems to work fine for many Victorians!
i think the fine for that might be a bit higher and i hate spending money.!!
Nah, in Victoria your publicly funded defense lawyer will plea-bargain you down to 20 hours of community service and when you fail to show for that you'll have a human rights lawyer explain how you've had a hard life and you'll get a standing ovation when the judge lets you walk and wishes you all the best.
I had no problem on my ride yesterday .... couldnt see any speed signs where I was
The 'ton up' club
i like that as we are in a nanny state.
I'm guessing 162kph would be instant loss of licence for 3 months and a substantial fine?
What penalties apply for speeding in NSW?
If your vehicle is detected by a fixed speed camera, mobile speed camera or Police Officer and a penalty notice is issued, you will incur a fine and licence demerit points. Learner and P1 licence holders will have their licence suspended for at least 3 months for any speeding offence.
There are licence suspension periods, similar to the minimum disqualification periods applied by a court, for exceeding the speed limit by more than 30 km/h (3 months), and by more than 45 km/h (6 months). If police catch you speeding by more than 45km/h over the limit you may have your licence immediately suspended and confiscated at the roadside for 6 months.
Police can also impound or confiscate number plates from a vehicle for a period of 3 months:
when a driver is caught exceeding the speed limit by 45km/h; or
a disqualified driver is caught exceeding the speed limit by 30km/h.
If a disqualified driver is caught speeding by more than 45km/h over the speed limit, Police can impound or confiscate number plates from a vehicle for a period of 6 months.
