    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    First of all thanks lads for all the replies and also
    the txts, its a great feeling to get the responces

    This is just a wee quick up date on me moto
    will fill you all in on leaving Iran and Pakistan
    in a day or two...

    So anyway the front forks seals went after
    that nitemare of a road from Taftan to Quetta
    about 440miles, lads n ladies i will be honest here
    i was crapping meself on some off it, its different when
    you travelling with someone you know you have help
    or if the shit hits the fan you know you could probably
    go faster than them so they would get caught and not
    you

    but back to the oil seals, i brought spares with me
    so no problems there (thanks Jockser for the offer)
    This morning started to take the moto apart to fit the
    new ones, but the bolts for the right fork brace would
    not move so a wee bit harder and snap didnt i take
    the heads off both bolts, aah the joys of motorcycling

    Even with the bolt heads off the fork would not come
    off the brace, half a can of wd40 and a hour later wiggling
    the fork back and forth, i got it out...so now to get the
    bolts out, tryed the trick of two nuts together but no luck.
    So next thing the wee man in the hotel, waving to me to
    follow him, got in to his van, a 5 minute drive to his friends
    and 10mins later his mate had the bolts out in his work shop
    all off this done for the heavy price of 40cents....

    lads where would you get it

    so tomorrow its find fork oil and put me moto
    back together, nobody said it was going to be
    easy, but i love me moto

    on the road sure ya ave to
    Travel is fatal to hatred, bigotry and prejudice.
    love n laughter

    Sorry te hear of the wee(??????) problems. Hope they get resolved quickly and you're back on your way.

    Know exactly how you feel about being on your own. It took me about three hours to do 90ks of piste on my own in Mori. Just had to be sooooo careful.

    Go n'eiri an bothar leat as they say

    As Alte said.

    As for the wee problems with the forks. Sure all you needed to do was wait until the back-up four-wheel drives and the TV boyos turned up. Sure yer not thinkin' straight!

    Good luck on the road and keep her lit.
