I'm sure it's on here somewhere - I'm in Newcastle (the other one) in NSW, Oz-trail-yah. Close enough to the beach that bicycles (and my precious Toyota Troop Carrier) rust at the slightest provocation.  :'(

I'm coming over to the Old Dart in August for a month, so get ready.  ;D

I saw a test and Vaseline works surprisingly well against corrosion, and Tectyl Superwax.

See: http://www.motorstophelder.nl/anti-corrosie/

Well it's Dutch but the pics speak book chapters as we say down there.

Pedal to the metal! Wind, rain, hills, braking power permitting ;)

Thanks J.

Much better is a great Ozzie invention made from... sheep grease (lanolin)! (What else? ;)) It's called Lanox:

and it is fantastic. Not gooey, but won't come off in the rain. Provides just enough protection, and is harmless to all bike materials.

Not sure if it's available up your way, tho...

Cheers,
Sam

Hi Sam,

Are you taking your Thorn to the UK in August?

Do you have a tour in mind?

Cheers,

pj (in Brisbane)

OOPS!

 Sorry to ask a silly question... just found the detail in your earlier posts.

It sounds like a terrific holiday.

Down under? Maybe the weight of a Thorn gravitates it Southward?
LOL   ;D

There are certainly few on the ground in the Northland, John:  Jim K & I are roughly north-south in Eastern Ontario & the Catskills in NY (with a few days' riding in between!); and Dan, Ron S and David S are far to the west on the Left Coast beyond the mountains.  (There must be a few others, but those are the names I recall in these threads.)

All doing our best to keep the continent nicely Thorn-balanced east-to-west.

Best,

Not contributed to this long-running thread before!  I am in Preston, Lancashire (UK), and am currently in the process of renovating my 2003 Nomad. Next year will be a 'big' birthday for me, and I intend a big tour to celebrate. :)
