    I wish I had the time on my road trips to take some pic's & do a Thread.

    It was the same thing in Australia drive most of the night to get to a mine site the next morning work the day & drive back in the night.
    1 of my last trip to a mine site it was a Valaduum Mine Mount Magnet WA
    Going up there at night hundreds of Roo's never hit any, did the job I had to do.
    Comming back to Perth at night & not a Roo in site thinking this is good.
    1 hour into 6 hour drive, went to change the radio chanel & fu_k.
    2 sheep head to tail, dead centre of my Truck lifting the front wheel & then the back wheel as a Road trail rough pastat 100+ kmh the anuther way.

    Them came the smell as now it was a long drive back with this smell from hell, lost the air con, not very much of the head lights left, at 1 stage my head light was very bad I stoped & found the 2 bolbs had gone, so only parks worked.
    I kept go I did stop for fuel & whated to get a new bolb but they only had 24 Volt
    & my system is 12V OK put it on the right side so car comming can see me.
    Limping home about 2 kilometres to go & I see a police car, thinking here we go only 2 k to go & they going to stop me, they followed 500 metre The front of the truck was a mess.
    Any way they drove pass me & let me get home, what time that was I got no Idea.
    The Ex wife wakes me up in the morn & wanted to know what with the truck & it stinks

    20,000 in the Mazda BT50 and 14,000 on the Kawasaki Versys, both since September 2012.
    I've also now got another bike, Yamaha TDM900, so that'll lessen the average on the other two in the future.

    I know the new CB500 are 48 hp

    90K kms in just under 4 years, BT-50 hasn't missed a beat, needs new tyres though, most driving has been road trips and visa runs in the north.

    OP, nice effort, but according to your dash, you'refuel tank is empty, oil is low, battery is out of charge, pump is stuffed and all the doors are open.

    Ye mate like it like that & also no brakes, Nu pump station 500 metre away fuel up in the morning, that if I take the truck to work.

    Your tires must be very hard by now 4 years old.
    My tires 2 year old are crap. still a lot of tread, just hard as a rock.

    Yeah, I took her in to get the tyres checked about 10K kms ago, plenty of tread but it just doesn't feel right, and has screeched a few times at hard stops. The Thai mechanic laughed and said no need for new tyres they have years left in them, I asked to rotate them, front on back, ya know, he looked puzzled and I had to explain.

    This was a tyre shop / workshop too. I went in to get the breaks tightened up as Mazda do a crap job but won't make them tight how I like coz they gotta go by certain specs I was told. Mazda also told me tyres were fine. Will be getting a new set for sure before the next road trip.

    9999 I travel a lot & like good tires.
    I guess this should be in Bettys Tires thread, but it is also about how many Kilometres you drive.
    Your tires should be good condition when you have that screeching noise on take off, heaving braking & turning it time don,t wait for the tire to be warn out.
    When they are warn a lot the rubber is thinner & will puncher very easy.
    If you drive fast then you need good tire under you.

    Yeah, think I've left it about 10,000 kms too long, I don't drive fast though mostly because the roads up here don't allow for it, but lots of twists and turns, mountain roads, steep 2nd gear climbs etc, and started to get the screeching sounds when making sharp turns at standard speed, so yeah, gonna get newens. Just checked out BB's thread some good info there will report over there what I decide on. The factory ones on it now are michelin so might change it up and see if a different brand is better. Defo not gonna skimp on tyres.

    The TDM900 is very low on the hp side of things
    85hp is pretty respectable for a 200 kilo package.
    It makes a little more hp than my r1100GS, but the GS makes more torque at about half the rpm's, which makes the GS feel very strong. But the GS weights in at 250 kilo wich makess it a bit of a pig.

    When I posted this I was thinking 5000 kilometers in 1 week you can not do this.

    Well after a very long week & very little sleep, I have clocked up 5000 kilometres, I still have 36 hour left , l hope I don't have to go any where.
