GTS300 blowing fuses

my 2018 GTS 300 blew four of the 10 amp fuses last Tuesday. Problems started after the Easter Sunday ride, and it’s getting progressively worse. Workshop visit 1: no fault found.iIt cut out just before the entrance to the Burnley Tunnel on Tuesday. As I rode through the tunnel hoping it wouldn’t blow again, I looked for a safe place to park in the tunnel. No parking any time.ive now abandoned it at Peter Stevens until it’s fixed.anyone else had the same problem?See More

MILK RUN RIDE Gippsland - November 18-19 at Canterbury or Bunyip

November 18, 2017 at 8:30am to November 19, 2017 at 4:30pm
ThemeMooo! This is a repeat of a 2-day weekend ride we did two years ago. We'll learn about Victoria's dairy industry as we meander through the rich rolling green hills of Gippsland which produces a quarter of the nation's milk supply. We'll look at modern milk-processing factories as well as the remains of old dairy farmer’s co-ops that have long closed. The scenery is simply stunning as we ride along rural back roads used by milk trucks that pick up fresh supplies twice daily from the various…See More

There are two options available in town. The Leongatha Motel and McCartin's Hotel.Ride leaders usually organise accommodation. However this becomes a bit of a juggle when people drop out late or can't decide until the last minute. I'm happy to book accommodation for those who are confirmed attendees.So far I have…See More
