    Aussies, can you shed some light?

    Does it help that it's a leftover from making beer? We had to find something to do with it. Now find someone from Japan and ask them about nato (not NATO) Stubious
  2. Hi all. I've been lurking here in the background for a couple of weeks now reading all the great discussions going on. I've finally got my learners permitt, should have done it 17 years ago. I'm looking for a road/trail bike probably a KLX TTR DRZ. The learners permitt means I'm restricted to 260cc max for the next 15 months due to local laws. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=68# Cry I'm intending to use the bike for a daily commute to work and to go out on the fire trails and tracks on the weekends. I'm 191cm (6'4" ) and weigh around 90kg (195lb) which makes all of the bikes I'm legal to ride rather on the short size for me. The seat height is all about the same, and all of them will need a set of bars and clamps to make me comfortable, especially since I usually stand up on tracks. At the moment the most likely is the KLX250R. I think the water cooling will be better, especially on the road. Also there is a promotion going at the moment for a 300 big bore kit being included with the KLX. So while I'm restricted to 260cc for 15 months I get a free upgrade at the end http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=68# Thumbs Up I've left the XR off the list because of the amount of road miles I'll be doing. Any comments/suggestions appreciated. Stubious
