    I believe its old growth timber from protected native Tasmanian forest. Pretty expensive cause your not suppose to cut it down. But your neighbors really judge you on the quality of timber you use in your fence so I figured it was OK.

    Damn its a fun bike. Still as quick as I remember her :thumbsup:

    After a long hiatus I pulled the R1 out of the shed today. Paid for some rego, did a quick oil change, quick clean, slap the belly pan back on and she's ready to go again.

    After I get my act together I'll be booking it in with Motogarage for a jet kit and tune. But I've been trawling eBay and after deciding a Ohlins steering damper was a little far for the budget I came across GPRV4's. I've never heard of them so has anyone had any experience with them?
