Good luck mate! It seems like you brought enough gear for a couple months. :lol:
Wish my favorite team luck: MV Agusta Reparto Corse

Front tyre is the stock Metzler, the rear is the Bridgestone BT023. Picked it up cheap from a mate ($0.00). ;)
I've heard mixed reviews from these, so i'm interested to see how it goes. Keeping in mind it's a "Sports Tourer", which is what i'll be doing.
Will keep you posted...

Left from Brisbane. Down through lismore, armidale did thunderbolts and buckets to singleton yesterday.
Through putty road, lithgow, goulburn and out past tumut.
Done a couple of thousand kms and bike is performing beautifully!
Trying to post pics, but no luck as yet with the iPhone.
As a bonus, troy Bayliss has a wildcard!

Well I made it. About 2400kms in two and a bit days.
Came down through the black spur which was pretty good. Haven't ridden that for about 7 years.
And how good is the vic high country. Can't wait to head back and do more of it.

The rear tyre has been ok. Broke it loose a few times in some slower corners but nothing scary.
It chopped up a bit on the shoulders after a spirited ride near Tumut.
