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

Cheers, Richard.
Iconman, we will probably be leaving Burekup about 10 ish .It would be good to have another Postie with us. They are great equalisers. You say that yours will only do around 80 , you should be ok ,but let me warn you some of ours have been clocked at 82,it was down a big hill in Pemberton though. The offer is still there for a ute ride with Simon . Went for a ride to Bridgetown today and I reckon the Posties are the go, anything over 70km/h was bloody cold.
Cheers

wet outside or inside doesn't matter, have to chuck Baaaabra in to keep warm I suppose, at least the dog won't steal her



although she's a bit confused when there's a KTM around
