Wink Re: Hello from Queensland Australia

Hey Dave, welcome to the forum! Howzit down in Queensland these days? Say hi to Noosa Heads for me.

You're fine going up hills as you are, but going down hill if it long and steep enough you're best off killing the engine and coasting down. The reason being is when you're idling down the hill and still going fast, your engine is not getting sufficient lubrication and can over heat. If your going down hill fast and on the throttle, you're ok as lubrication is in your gas and all's well.

Have fun and ride safe!
