    Hey guys, first time poster , long time reader. Had my my 2015 961 for 2 years in south east Queensland and loving it. I brought it brand new and no issues to date. I'm lucky to have Brisbane Motorcycles as a dealer close buy who have been good too deal with.
    I would like to catch up with any fellow owners on east coast Australia for rides or chin wag.
    Also wondering if anyone this side of the world be wanting to lend/ hire balance shaft gear jammer and spring tension tool before I spend $400 AUD from CNW ?
    I have a new spring and want to have a look in the primary while doing 2yr 7500km service.
    TIA,
    Wayne

    Hi Wayne
    I'm on the Gold Coast and keen for a ride any weekend , My red 961 has 25000 km on it now and still running fine with a couple of mods.

    There are a couple of other owners around Brisbane I have had the pleasure to ride with,
    And some bloke on the sunshine coast who says he rides but !!! Aye Stephen!!!

    look forward to catching up

    cheers
    Paul

    Thanks for that Paul..... lol! But you are right, I don’t ride enough. 2 years in and only 8000 Km on this beauty. A few minor issues but nothing serious, yet!

    Hi Wayne, I am on the Sunshine Coast and we’ve done a little talking about getting together but have done nothing about it! Maybe you could make it happen. I have a minor objection to folding my old knackered body onto my CR and going anywhere near the motorway to Brisbane! A suitable location may be a sticking point. Would be great to get a few of us together and turn some serious heads!

    Awesome Paul and Steve ,
    I'm in Ipswich... half way between you both. Would be great to catch up though just handed my liecene in for a month ( naughty boy! ) ...hence some preventive maintenance . I'll be sure to organize a meet up around Sunny Coast in November to keep them kms down on your bike Steve
    Look forward to meeting up

    P.s..... I'll order the tools

    If you's get it together and going to do an overnight ride or something to make the extra distance worth it I'll have a crack at making it, working 7 and 7 ATM so bit of luck it might work out, I rode two up from bris back to singleton in a day last year, bike went well but would prefer to spread that distance over a couple or a few days. 0432323025
