Starting to trip-prep my LC and gear as I plan to do Great Ocean Road via Geelong in the next few weeks.

Here’s a image I took on my last trip ... magic!



Also, the CUB as I'm heading off for three days this coming week and hoping to do some of the OXLEY H’Way & Thunderbolts Way.


I'm not certain how far I'll get due to all the flood-damage and road closures.

Sounds great, @JP_in_SD. What was the damage, as we’d say in Oz (how much did the upgrade cost) and were they separately priced?

Don’t drop into a pothole, Mike - the Cub may never make it out! 😬

Ok, so I just grabbed the paperwork to see what the breakdown was. Here it is:
For the activation codes, it was $325 for ABS Pro; $230 for Hill Start Assist. Then for the labor to do software update and enable the codes, they charged $109 for both, plus $47 for the diag hookup (which they were nice enough to waive). Another $44 in tax and $4 environmental fee brought the total damage to $712 out the door for both features.

Also worth noting, I was able to confirm for myself that the new codes now show up in the Extras list through the GS-911 tool. And the hill-start feature does indeed show up on the dash when activated, directly above the gear indicator (the gear indicator temporarily becomes slightly smaller to fit the new icon above it).

I love how the environmental fee is thrown in as a matter of course (likely programmed into the billing software) when no petroleum products were used or disposed of. 😁

My SW Motech air cushion just arrived and very happy with the sizing and fit. I will need to do some air adjustment on my trip to get the comfort level right but seems to be just the ticket.

Looks that way @daaef - the midcoast looks dodgy. I'll still head off via the Putty -Thunderbolts - Walcha with an overnight stop at Tamworth. The weather looks good tho’ and will decide the day's route in the morning.

About the washing. What about the TFT? Can you get it wet? Likewise, can you spray the whole bike down? The switches and keyless start button?

I would think so, otherwise it would be impossible to ride in the rain. I wouldn't turn the pressure washer on any of the electronic bits (or the non-electronic bits, for that matter), but the bike can handle a washing no problem.

Cleaned the rear spokes with cotton rag soaked in WD40. That ACF50 attracts the road dust. Re-apply ACF50.

Update - - yeah, I know. Yawn.

A while ago I fitted the Knight Design lowered pegs which made a massive difference for leg comfort however the brake adjustment was limited and was awkward to use intuitively. Today I fitted the Wunderlich foot brake lever lowering kit (31430-313) which drops the brake about an inch. Must be the cheapest part on their catalog and has corrected the position. Before and after.
