It's fine. I've sent an email.

I was thinking the water was stored in the rider (he gulps down litres prior to heading off to the fire and by the time he's there, hey presto constant 'water') - recycling is very eco-cool. :lol:

That's hilarious... I love the little air-siren obscuring the fork crown in both pics. I think that will out do all you proud Air-Zound owners; just have a siren blaring as you go along, no need for irritating occasional button pressing.

Oil lamp.

Looks to be a nozzle to the left (as ridden) of the lamp.
That's a pretty cool first response vehicle.

This could be just the thing for forum member LG. Last heard of fighting the fires down in southern Tassie (and well done to you LG).

Brilliant bike and wish I had one in my office ready for use! Most of my work with fires is out in the bush and these bikes would be of very limited value unfortunately. Looks like it's well laid out with ready access to role the hose out, branch ready to install and most importantly helmet within easy reach!

Off topic, but my thoughts are with the families of the 2 Victorian firefighters who were killed yesterday.
