Default Packing...

For us, the AR starts in about 11 hours... So I'm packing. And I've already resorted to duck taping things to the outside of my top box I'm sure that's not in the manual...

When i get back, I want to see at least one photo of someone packing worse than I am (it's not my fault, honest, it was all going swimmingly till I decided to bring a spare exhaust pipe, it's all downhill from there...)

well my box of bits is off down that way already in Mr toads motor, so the bike will be lightly loaded tomorrow for the ride down and my stuff should be waiting me there

Cheers Mark.

That's me you should be worried about because Northy has decided that I am too old and frail has given me the bed !!! Are they for a pointy ??
