It is all a mystery to me, thank goodness they are only painted red, if they had come out in orange they would be everywhere.
Catch you Sat.
I know mate - I bought it for the wife but she seems to have lost interest. Its actually our 'second car'

Kev.
Ride down to Burekup with me then see how the Harley goes on the gravel? Sounds like I'll be leaving real early...

"The leader of the opposition" has finally pulled the pin so i'll be on my pat.

The shite weather was the final nail. But, brownie point still earnt IMO. It's the thought that counts.

Iconman, I live in Mandurah ,simon lives up the bush near you ,we were trailering to save a bit of time,bit more of the trailwork. I know posties are quick as hell through the tracks, however the ones we have seem to be severely restricted by the riders. We were going to head off fairly early to make sure we got to the pub on time. I know Simon said he has it mapped ,but trust me ,we have followed some of his "mapping" before, it doesn't always go where it is supposed to.

Jt, I was planning on heading down the SW Hwy anyway and stick to the black stuff. My postie has a top speed of around 80 with gear, on a flat road with a tail wind and I need to do a dump before I hop on... I will have two guys on Harleys giving an escort up front - real mean guys too

I thought I could join you guys for the trail leg. What ever I'm keen to go with the flow.

Cheers, Richard.
