    Mag wheels for the Honda?

    The Click that is .... how much do you think?

    After the flat tyre a month or so back I got to thinking about going 'tubeless' - penetrations don't cause instant blow-outs. [Mmmmh, should I edit that???]

    What do YOU think it costs for stockie 'mags' + new tyres + tubeless valves? All fitted.

    I asked around and was surprised by the 'spread' of pricing but found a very busy shop in PT today with EXCELLENT prices and top service!

    Sorry, no prize for best guess.

    Cheers, Rob.

    Rivo, you are correct, 5k for new mags (only) from Honda. At the bike shop I found yesterday, I was offered a choice of 4 styles and colours @ 2,100 the pair, fitted! I'll be buying new tyres and tubeless valves so that takes the total up to 3,460 Baht, fitted! Around AUD$110. Cheap as chips.
    Cheers, Rob.

    Pure Arabica all the way.
    We go thru a fair bit of it, 2nd 5kg shipment arrives from CM tomoz. I can drink espresso before bed with NO adverse effects, only +ve - fresh made espresso is low on caffeine - quality coffee and a wee bite of cacao (70%), I'm laughing

    No Coffee for Noy after Midday or she will not sleep all night 555. Personally I am not a coffee drinker but my dad is a big coffee drinker and has a coffee to help him sleep at night...

    KR sounds liek a good deal for the bike and the best way to go IMO.

    Gary, there's COFFEE and then there is QUALITY fresh espresso... the latter is low in caffeine.

    Yes a good deal for the bike, not for bling value but for safety-sake. Having had one flat, scary enough at relatively slow speed and light traffic, I will feel far safer with tubeless tyres!
    Cheers, Rob.

    Like I said i am not a coffee drinking (I do like the smell though 555) my dad considers himself and a Coffee Connoisseur and imports his coffee beans from somewhere ( I have no idea where) and then keeps them in an vacuum-sealed container. He would not have Siht coffee in the house, That would be sacrilege 555.

    If i am after a good night I just try to convince Noy to have one after noon :P

    We did sell a Coffee called Rock Hard which has the same effect as Viagra. Dont want to mix it up with the real stuff and have it before work in the morning.

    Dont ask for any as its just been banned by the Australian TGA for obvious reasons.

    LOL ..... that stuff's laced with sildenafil, the active ingredient for Cialis. Safer to use the actual drug if you need any help in that department.

    G4, we have the coffee in Phuket, you can't buy it off-the-shelf in CM, the producer's are further north. Remind me to give you a pack next visit.
    Cheers, Rob.
