HUGE one for BMW owners




There will be Shit loads of this going on in the next year :'( These guys ran some amazing bike tours



http://www.compassexpeditions.com/camping-gear/


We are clearing out our depot, selling off a huge list of Compass Expeditions merchandise, Expedition equipment, motorcycle parts and tyres, tech and communications gear, workshop equipment and a lot more.

http://www.compassexpeditions.com/product/compass-expeditions-waterproof-70l-duffel-bag/ $20 - bargain


Sad times indeed with the closure of Compass Expeditions, by far the most difficult part was telling our staff they have no job after September, they along with 100,000s of other workers will be unemployed.
With such a saturated job market it is going to be a case of "Who you know, not only what you know", so if any of our friends are in need, or know of someone who is in need, of some exceptional staff please email us directly(info@compassexpeditions.com).
We have staff who excel in office admin, bookkeeping, compliance / processes development and business marketing.
It was our staff who made Compass Expeditions whom it became, we were blessed with staff who actually cared and were invested in the success of our business, a rare quality these days.
We would not hesitate to recommend our wonderful staff to anyone, we will miss them all.
Kind Regards,

Mick McDonald

From Sunyee...Same mob I bought solar panels from and they were complete Shite...200 watt put out 50 watt...replaced...next one was 200 watt, put out 50 watts.  Save your money and get a quality battery.
Having lots of friends on farcebook is the same as having lots of money in monopoly...means absolutely nothing!!

Got any mates in Vic in lockdown???


As Melbourne enters week five of Lockdown, we wanted to do something special for all those (still) staying at home.

So this week we’re helping everyone outside Victoria send some love to their Melbourne mates. Each day this week, the first 1000 people from anywhere outside Victoria will be able to send their mate a free dessert or ice cream delivery, valued up to $20*, from a local Melbourne dessert business. 

This #lockdownlove offer will run from 8pm each day this week, till Friday September 4, and is one way we can all show Melbournians that we’re here for them.

How does Austrac class that as a Hybrid, it a pop-top caravan with an extra outside kitchen? I know the whole hybrid concept is pretty ill-defined, but I can't see how that in any way is not just a pop-top caravan.

you mean the Companion ones?

mine seems to be still working a treat.

the ($99 Companion) battery pack had been sitting unused outside our decking door for months. Then it seemed to "randomly" start to beep. (low charge)

So I laid the $79 Companion solar panels out and plugged them in. One day of sunlight.... battery charged!

Got the BCF Solar Blanket today.
4.30pm, laid it on the front lawn, connected to the second battery on the work ute.
Every thing worked as it should, multi metered connections, unit.
