G'day Charlie

The 990 just fits in the trailer, have to remove the screen and GPS mount. I could have lifted the tent higher but then it would be way above the roof line of the Cruiser and the ladder would need to be extended. It's also about 150mm longer than a dirt bike so the tailgate doesn't close all the way but I made an adjustable closing system to overcome that.

three clutches?? maybe you should get one of those auto ones or buy shares in the company that make the KTM ones.

Caught a few fish but it was hard going with the big tides, had a feed every night so I can't complain.
Best was a meter long Spanish Mackerel and some nice sized Golden Trevally, other than that there was plenty of small reef fish.

I was busted off by a large longtail Tuna off the cliffs after a long battle.

G'day Mick,

long time, no see. I've got a few things going on this year but no real plans for a long ride on the 990, maybe a few weekend getaways.

I am thinking about riding Tassie in December though.

Awesome camper

How about a few more pictures of your trailer with a description of how you built it / whats on it?

that's a really great idea btw.

Hi LC8TY

Never caught a spaniard but we are stopping in Broome at my cousins for a couple of days at the end of the Gibb River Rd section of our trip and he has a 6m+ boat so maybe.........

A 1m one would be good too.


My cousin was telling me that the tides make it really hard at times to fish there and there is a definite "season" where boat fishing is a lot easier.

Anyway its something else to look forward to!

Cheers

A 6m boat will take you anywhere in Broome depending on the dry season easterly winds, Disaster reef and Ganthiume point are good. A 1m mackerel is only just above legal size, only 3-4 kilo. My personal best is 32 kilo and over 2m in length out from Darwin.

G'day Rooter

Fish'n is more than a past time up here, more like a way of life.

Barra is the main target
