    You guys do all that work yourself? In a year or so I want to treat my Z1000 to an overhaul of sorts, something like what you describe really, maybe even more like replacing rubber hoses/lines etc.

    Sure did..
    The only thing we didn't do ourselves was fitting tyres and servicing the rear Ohlins shock.
    Brake lines had already been replaced with braided HEL lines when we fitted ZX14 NISSIN calipers in the past.

    My bro rode it to Victoria for the GP's and is riding over Mt Hotham today, the lucky bastard!

    Nice, Jelly. Yeah I'm looking at going to the GP in 2020 so I'd love to get that all done leading up to it and really refresh the bike. Time to learn how to do valve clearances!

    Kinda opposite to the clear private thought thing - one of the things I have always liked about riding is that because you need to be focused/in the moment, it doesn't matter what's gone on during the day/what's just happened etc., you can, for the most part, distract yourself from it; there's an element of forced mindfulness about it. Though I did ride like an absolute loon last week after I had a dummy spit at work - while riding a bike fucking fast when pissed off is certainly not the smartest thing one can do, it is definitely the most satisfying as zero fucks are given about cops/cameras etc - there's a certain freedom in that.

    As I rode to work today and felt the air passing over me, the freedom of not being encased in a metal cage and the ease with which I moved both through and past traffic, I couldn't help but smile and think to myself "there is something inherently cool about riding a bike".

    Clear private thought with mania on a bike? Never enough likes for that one.

    Very clear thoughts that didn't abate while riding and I was still just as pissed off when I got home! But driving wouldn't have been anywhere near as satisfying as your full system screaming through the tunnel, quickshifting through the gears when taking off from lights and then looking in the mirrors and seeing cars as small dots who haven't yet made it across the intersection - takes me back to the freedom of 10 years ago where paranoia about being sprung didn't exist at the level it does now.

    Love that feeling. Maybe a wind down would help after.

    Rarely do I get that fucked off but I've been single handedly dealing with a software company to develop/refine a software program to our complex needs and the cunce that will be using it haven't really even been involved because they don't have time (but they think I do...?). However I am kicking arse and the program will be great but I've had to carry the entire thing and because no one's looked at it, nor have they refined the spreadsheets that will be uploaded, the info is outdated before it even goes in, and will need updating once in the system - and guess who'll have to do that...?

    I am a firm believer in getting shit right the first time because:
    a) the effort to change shit has to be expended anyway
    b) will take longer than if you did it properly the first time; and,
    c) I'm the person who gets dragged into it because peeps aren't doing what they need to do and so create extra work for me
    /rant (clearly still not over it &#128515

    Anyway, so bikes. I'll likely be riding mine again tomorrow.

    I put some new braided lines from HEL on mine. Theyve got the carbon look.

    Had to set them weird to get them to fit, but god damn the improvement over the standard lines is insane.

    Pics to come.

    Without a doubt one of the best improvements to any bike is junking the rubber brake lines and putting in braided lines.

    Couldn't agree more, and that intangible, therapeutic aspect to riding can be really hard to convey to the uninitiated.

    +1 and then some. Recently(ish) did a Siegler braided line kit with EBC HH sitnered pads and new fluid on the Z1000 and bugger me the stopping power/feel/bite/progressiveness difference is incredible. Night and day. I mean they're no brembo M50's, but after trying them out you don't need any 'more' brakes.

    Tried explaining this to someone on a backroad 20ks north of Peterborough last month. She just didn't understand and her SAPOL 'therapy' cost $430.

    On topic. Rode the DRZ400SM to the coolalinga laundromat this morning. Fk the highway and came through the bee creek side. Got some more dust on it.

    Hoping for some rain so it can get a wash.
