    Default I gave her the bloody horn a little to hard!

    I had an erratic legend driving an HSV surge out in front of me in peak hour yesterday. I mounted the tram bump strip and wedged myself between an approaching tram and the HSV.
    I yoinked on the horn with plenty of time for them to react, but they didn't! On second application applied with a quick tweak of the wheel the bloody thing popped off...
    Felt like jumping out and sticking it up their a&$Ä.

    My sister lives in Seoul, Korea. Drives a nondescript Hyundai. Doesn't drive a lot, maybe 40,000 km over the past 10 years. Wore out the horn and had to replace it. Her mechanic says he has never seen or heard of it happening to anyone else.

    G'day,
    how is Kermit ? Haven't seen or heard of him in a long while. He was sold a while ago, from memory.
    regards,

    Hi John :-)
    I wish I was in Kermit, I could have squeezed between the tram and hsv at speed to cut them off, I bet that would have made the hsv driver draw mud
    Kermit is my first born and would never be sold, he was repaired after the rear end insident and I recently did a little run up to cape york and back with my bub.

    Up until my assualt on the cape I would always use castrol gtx, simple, but I've now found a little bottle of magic...
    On the viking raid, 2012, the motor was leaking oil and blowing a lot out exhaust at high revs...
    On the cape york assualt I added Lucas engine stabiliser. Amazing! No more oil leaks and no smoke blowing out the exhaust! I recommended it to a mate with an 1986 k series bmw bike, horizontal 4 cylinder, they always blow smoke on start up, a lot, not anymore.
    I also used penrite 10w50 fully synthetic, as this is what my new Alfa uses, I'll be sticking with this combination from now on.

    I use Castrol GTX for Daffy Duck as its available at grocery stores in the middle of nowhere. I use Mobil One 5W/50 synthetic on the Xantia and 2CV Charleston. The latter is the better oil. On both I use Nulon Manual Gearbox additive for a a smoother gearchange.

    Harley, Kermit looks great. Looks like you haven't gotten around to painting the rear mudguard. If you do get to repeat your HSV/Tram episode, go real close to the tram - they have a similar coloured green that you may be able to transfer across.
