Good Day All,
I will go for my first ride 2020 on Sunday 12th Jan through the Mundaring forest.
Start at Catalano's Cafe around 8:30am up to Mundaring through the forest towards Christmas Tree Well, back up north to Core Cider Brewery.

Short trip to catch-up and get dust on the bike +_110km :lol:

Cheers

Great ride on Sunday. We waited for the bus to arrive at 8:30am as advised by BOZO. (5 riders) Luckily we had Chris arrived before the bus on his DR and we knew it was time to go.
Made our way to Mundaring Wier onto Firewood Rd. After tricky hill clime, very loose pea gravel and dust, we made the call to do a round track back to Mundaring Wier for a liquid cool down. 8)

Thanks for joining me on another great ride. Looking forward to the next one.

Cheers

Thanks Jean for your Sunday Ride,
I dropped my tyre pressures by 10 psi and suffered by very vague handling by the front tyre especially. Hence my decision to drop out before I dropped it.
I went to the nearest Servo and reinflated to normal. Handling was OK on the bitumen at 10 psi under but not on the dirt. I have ridden it with as little as 18psi in the front with no ill effects on the roads when I have been a bit slack and have read that the road racers normally drop it a few psi for racing.
I was a bit more fussy last year when I took the Beast to Philip Island for the MotoGP and went 36/42 psi with camp gear.
