    For those of us that Ride Motorbikes.... I think it's a good measure of what's what and who's who out there on the roads..... Biker's themselves can be the worse of the worse sometimes..... There are too many of us all competing for the same shrinking piece of Tarmac, Cyclists, Bikers, Truckers...

    Welcome Alex, For some reason the V8 Petrol seems to be in slightly better condition than the 4.2 Diesel, When looking for a second hand one, They seem to be better looked after than the Diesel, Maybe the Diesel tends to be more of a workhorse Than the Petrol...... Personally i would go for the...

    Dakar Classic 2022

    I think most people are expecting to watch it Live, As in sit down for 10 hrs with a Bucket of chicken wings and pop corn and watch the Dakar all day, In reality that doesn't happen, People in Canada were expected to Pay up to 150 dollars to subscribe and view, To then find out it was only...

    Odd brake behaviour

    Could easily be Master cylinder.. Change it then go from there if its no better..... Check all 4 wheels are Braking and nothing is sticking, Just eliminate problems with sticking/seized/knackered/ leaking, brake callipers/pistons etc etc..... But id bet a NZ Dollar its the Master cylinder...

    Parking Brake

    80 series Land cruisers are not known for their Brilliant Handbrakes, A lot of us have made personal tweaks and adjustments to improve them (lengthening the Dogbones etc)..........But it looks like you bought the 100 series so all should be fine
  49. Higgy

    All the 3's............
