It's Longest Day 10 this year

Who'd've thought we'd still be tackling it 10 years on.

Crutchy and I will be riding the route we've ridden every year - barring an injury year or two - but we're cruising this year. We'll choke...

I'll try and be there!

Ramdog and Karen are getting in ALL the great rides.

If I can get there I will. It's about time someone ELSE got to enjoy a good ride as well.

MX1 Australia is the retail arm of the Acerbis importer, Off Road Imports, so it's a good site to watch.

A great old favourite

A bog-stock '95 Dominator. Love it. It's a bit heavy and short on horsepower, but so's the rider.
