The tube I used for the Banner is a regular telescopic one for rolled up architects drawings, screw cap one end and it has done a great job of protecting the† Banner and great for travel on the K!

To maintain professional Australian courtesy this photo was taken by Gaz on his visit to Ireland......

Spoke with some airlines yesterday and there is a good chance that you could have a carry on tube up to about one metre or so in size as carry on.† As long as it fits in the overhead locker.† It all depends on the airline and the check in chick/bloke on the day as well as how full the aircraft is.† As long as your are polite, repectful and arrive with heaps of time before check in then you have more chance of success.††

The only airline we see issues with is TigerAir.† After all a budget airline is all about money.† If in doubt book your oversize items in on line as you'll save around 40%.† General rule is one suitable size carry on and a laptop/handbag.††

Dai, we predominantly have B737s here on out domestic routes to major hubs.† Only Jetstar use the A320 and bin loading.† As the B737 is floor loaded there is a bit more room for oversize articles.† The straps in those bays are more of a gate than a tie down, so I would expect a bit more movement on a rough landing.† Of course there are prop jobs for regionals, a handful of A330s and small buisjets like the F100/B717.††

The international airlines use a broad mixture of A330/B777 and the newer A350 and B787 are coming online.† The NZ legs also use the B737.††

Have I put you to sleep yet?†† Sleep

Nice try Stan.† As long as it is empty.†† Rolling Eyes

I spoke with one of my favourite Jetstar check in chicks last night and their limit for both domestic and international is 0.89m for carriage of tubes in the cabin.† They even have a measuring device to ensure it is within limits.† Too big and it goes in the hold for which they usually won't charge extra.

Dave,
I thought my device was a just the shot. No one would know that the sKroll was inside.

the only issue besides the weight accumulation is the baggage limit count

most air lines have a strict limit these days *(around aussie) depending on your travel carrier benefits ...once had a silver virgin card entitling me to 3 bags 32 kg limit for free

but pre purchasing extra† can be quite cheep , don't leave it to book in times , recently an extra bag cost me $62 ...pre booked .. was about $15

Have you ever loaded an RJ-100/BAE-146? Floor loaded, hands and knees, no room to kneel up - I HATED the feckin' things, especially after the day when I knelt on a spike where the floor was peeling and it went right though my knee. 737s have a bit more room in them, but not much.

good to hear .

I will be back in brisvegas on the weekend after all ...work commitments have changed ...yet again .

perhaps I should collect the sKroll - Banner and pass it on when we all next meet† at the new England tablelands meet in a couple of months for further adventures south ?

but before then, there are a few locals that are new to the forum since the last appearance of the banner up- this ways

namely martin†, reg†, black brick , Mathew , and a few others that haven't seen it at all ...yet

perhaps a local meet in the coming weeks could be a good idea?

do we have any events - swap meets on the calendar guys ?

or perhaps just a bbq up at the lookout ,,,before Mt Nebo ...might be in order ...again ill bring snags, bacon , rolls and drinks ...?†† anyone ????

if I get† a decent response perhaps Saturday week 29th ...and twb can pass the banner and meet the new guys ?

unless dazza is up for a local ride before then ?

glorious sounds good on sunday 23rd ??
Righto, I'm back in the Brissie area and the calendar is free from today thru the 1st of Movember, bar the week round the 13th/14th of October when I ride down to the Kozzie. If anyone in the SE Qld/ Northern Rivers region wants to do a weekend day or overnight ride somewhere. I'll be fiddling with minor details on the red RS today then doing day rides on my local roads this week. Bloody hell I've got too many spares in my shed to sort through. Must make a list (bits of plastic trim, indicators (but not RS front), tail lights, engine covers, rubber trim, all manner of grommets, etc) to see if any OZs need this or that. Cheers.

Thanks for putting those up Charlie. I will have to work out how to put photos on here. There is lots of photos on Facebook and Instagram, plenty of the Transport and Motorcycle Museums. It's worth a trip to Invercargill just to visit them alone.
