well the year
is about to come to a end and its been a torrid time for me thru this one for sure
didn't want to post negatives all year so haven't mentioned it before
its a blog of fun not misery lol
lots of medical probs that are not getting sorted out to well and to be blunt shit me to tears that its not happening
lost me job in november and im not old enough to retire on a pension
so thats cheesin me off with a tad bit of worry
but am hoping that
will be the change that can turn a few things around for me
a few trips away on the bike would be nice instead of short rides so im not to far away from home is the objective for the new year

so hope all of you are ready for a great year coming up and all the best to all for it

Seems like the ability to get the comfort riding is a universal thing
your either to hot and getting heat stroke or your freezing and need to get warm.
Have beeen looking at getting one of these for the summer riding season
a cooling vest

then your needs for the cold may have been found with a aussie vest
but am waiting till they may make it 12v as to have it wired up and not rely on the battery pack but i keep looking at how to use it
So hope these may get you looking for a solution to a sometime problem and make our riding even more enjoyable.

UPDATE and woes

Heres the 1st post

well had a bit of trouble with these bags as they are held up with a clip that dont seem to want to hold anymore .
really not happy so called the importers with a complaint about the issue I am having

so after a few emails back and forwards as you do I got the answer back that they were going to send me a new set of bags as they had come across thi same problem once before .

Always the way that I am the one to get the faulty product.

so have now received the new ones and yes you can really tell the difference in the problem part so am right to go again.

oh the importers and best service yet has come from


 give them a try -----great service

No not keep it simple stupid
the legends of music KISS

Well my other half went to her 1st ever concert last night here in Sydney as it was a birthday present and something she has wanted to always do.
Seems that when she was younger her mother banned her from going to there concert way back when we were all younger.

So before she went she sent a tweet about going to the concert and how as a young teenager she was banned and how excited this was going to be.

Well after arriving home happy as a pig in shit [as they say] she checked her phone as it was dinging away and gene simmons had retweeted her original tweet

and I got to hear about it all day and I say for the next few weeks
So happy that it was the best ever time of her life as it has brightened all up.

So the battery died on the bike
wouldnt start and would not take a charge so after a jump start and got it going the EMS[engine management light] came on and suppose to go into a limp mode .
Take the battery out and to a battery place to check it and it has dropped 2 cells and the test says its got 38cca instead of 270cca so its stuffed .
Buy a new one and installed and the bike fired straight up but the fault light is still on and of course its the weekend and no one open
SO the net provides a lot of answers and reading about this problem there seem like a fix may be able to get it out so will be trying some of these fixes tomorrow when im not peed off about this

not even 12 mths from a battery and this light thing is a pain as im going away and cant really get to a dealer before the leave date but may have to delay the trip a bit

will let you all know what the outcome is and what fixes it .

as the title

damn technology


so a lot of reading and asking on some forums and have tried this
light ems is on
oh damn

found the code thru just pushing the right button and it shows up in the instrument panelo and what it meant from a pdf list of codes that was supplied 

then do this hot cold thing which they talk about being a fixand  this is my version on it

1---started the bike and let it go to the fan started so it was hot then shut it down[light ems still on]

2---2hrs later started again and let it run to the fan started again and turned it off [light ems still on]

3---another 2 hrs and started again and before it got to the hot fan bit the light went off so let the bike go till the fan started and switched it off

4---tried and light goes off when started so am hoping it is fixed


so hoping the world is good and can get away on the trip with no more hiccups
