Lowood Motorcycle Swap 21st and 22nd July. Charlie if your going to the July Laidley swap meet, don't. You will be too early and it will be extremely boring waiting till October. If you want something to do in July go to the Lowood swap in Lindemans rd Lowood. Who's going and I'll definitely be bricking it at this stage.
Regards Martin.

Charlie have you thought about getting a social secretary. It would take the burden off where and when to go. I do have more free time these days.   Marc looking forward to the meet up, you need to stop typing and put all your efforts into getting your Brick going.
Regards Martin.

I have ordered parts from the UK, Germany and Aust. They are still coming and I am at a loose end until they arrive. The only problem I can have a go at fixing ATM is the bloody annoying park lights. I would love to be fixing the gearbox leak, fitting the dual seat and duck tail, spraying everything with DeoxIT! and fitting my mirrors . I too am looking forward to meeting you and Charlie.

ye Gods no ...no social secretary for this old bloke ...I was fortunate oops unlucky enough to loose the other half quite some years ago now 

i did attend her funeral , which some other members may remember .  just to be sure she didn't get out of that box …. giggle ...

hope you make it Marc ...always good get acquainted with a familiar face on the forum that we haven't actually met yet .

tis actually quite amazing the broad spectrum of fellows on the forum ,,,and share the enthusiasm and Komeraderie with other appreciators

we have met some fantastic guys and gals over the years ...and after the initial meeting ...we always catch up whenever we can … always a blast

maybe Matt could make this one ?  apparently he sailed through roadworthy with his rs first go .

and its a nice run up through ipswich along the warrego  then up to fernvale and left to lowood ...will be leaving Goodna caltex about 8.00 am ish

possibly reg fisher (minden area ) may join in as well  )confirmed just Now ...in another place)
 

cheers guys

Hi Charlie 

I'm in  yes the RS went through  rego without a problem

but I have developed a rear main leak, parts just came from motobin  to fix

just trying to plan if I have enough time to replace before the 22nd or after

good to hear matt

the rear main leak , I guess a drip or two out the bell housing ?  ...pretty typical actually ...many have just let it be for a good while ...I think gerty was a drip every now and again for more than a few years ...without too much issues at all ...but if you are going in there ...possibly a new friction plate … unless its very low ks ….more than likely just the oring under the big nut could be the likely issue ???
and about a comfortable days work ...if you've never done it before .

I hope you read the tips on gearbox bolts longer than necessary , heads cut off  to help with the removal and refitting ??

if you need a hand I could be available mate

workshop day ? giggles

Thanks for the offer Charlie  

I brought a new oil seal, o ring , nut and the six new clutch bolts and washers + new friction plate because I think mine will most likely be original and clutch cable 

+ some extra parts when I do the valve clearances 

Planing on trying to do most of the work this weekend  but  I do need to find the  correct dia and tread pitch for the gearbox slide bolts  

Do you know what they are off hand  ???

Rick how was the weather this morning, nice and brisk for an early morning ride? You're right about Saturday being the best day and due to the fact I am now free I can attend on either day. I probably need to ask the following question what days can those attending make it on.
Regards Martin.

About -7°C, a cold one but not the worst by any means, -11°C is the coldest it's been here since we moved here 20 years ago.
2°C ATM but its going down like a manhole cover.

Charlie what do you mean no K parts at the swap meet. What about all the K parts at the Samford swap meet, one and a half sets of panniers. My mate with the ute is not coming so I'll expect help with getting all my booty home.  See you on Sunday.
Regards Martin.

I didn't see you there. I got there at 11am. it was too bloody cold to leave Ipswich before 10am.
Not that you missed much if you didn't go. The bikes in the car park were more interesting than those inside!
I parked at the bottom of the 2nd row from the fence, next to a ratty looking K100. I looked out for Gerty!
As there wasn't much there to occupy my attention, I went for a ride down to the Gold Coast after.
The uni joint/s shat themselves at speed without any prior warning noises, destroying the driveshaft and possibly the swingarm and locking the real wheel.
I also destroyed my undies, but kept the bike upright with the rear wheel locked.
That happened at 2.30pm. It was 9.30 pm by the time the bike had been recovered and I finally got back home.

I think think I would have destroyed more than a set of undies

Think all of the port/ rum in the house would be consumed

Glad to hear your ok

Hopefully I should be there at the servo Charlie.  I know it well from days gone by.  

If I leave home at 7:15am Sunday morning, I should be there easily in time.

Martin, 

It's on Brisbane Road, just past Church Street, parallel to the motorway.  You'll pass the BP first, then Church St.

I haven't worn my cold weather gear for quite a few years, at least ten. About five years ago I nearly got rid of it but the Honorable Minister for Finance and Recreation put it away, bless her little cotton socks. Around here my winter gear consists of a liner in my summer jacket an Aldi bike shirt and jumper. Should I carry snow chains?

Regards Martin.

I just saw my previous post number 666. As I don't want to go to Hell, although it wouldn't require cold weather gear. I thought I'd better post another so now 667.

Tell me about it!
I don't live far from the rear entrance to Amberley RAAF Base.
We've been getting -2 & -3 in the mornings over the last week or so.
I know that's summer weather for Smithy in Guyra.
You know it's bloody cold outside when I open the back door for the cat to go out in the morning and she takes a few steps outside and turns around and comes back inside.

On a positive note, I sourced replacement driveshaft, front yoke and (black) swingarm for the K1100.
I've had the swingarm repainted gold as mine is a 93RS, with gold wheels and swingarm.
Hopefully it will be back on the road in the next week or so.

a little ride out today with some of the local K Crew and a wee bit chilly for us lot on the coastal strip
first there was 3 ... an S an Rs and a Rt …






which then became 4



 about to set off for the Lowood Swap Meet a short while later



4 became 6 with the arrival of some other, yet to meet, friends at the swap meet grounds



after a good hunt around the vendors at the meet... Matt scored a win with some parts at great prices ...and a good chat with other "k" riders .as the warmth returned with the sun .










then off for the "long way home" loop around the greater environs of Brisbane and the brisbane valley



thanks for coming along Mat , Martin, Dave , Paul and Reg

a glorious day to be out and about on old K bikes and good mates

A good day out with a bit of a chill around.  

An amiable atmosphere to meet some new faces.  If we keep boosting our numbers we may even overtake the Krew.   Cool
