Just realised that my old beast qualifies for this thread
Did fairly sandy outback trip in 2010 - Off Centre Rally [OCR] @ Wannaarring, [outback NSW]

heading north towards Louth

unschedualled stop north of Louth

looking east towards Bourke

west toward Louth

think Macca was looking for his kidneys!

l to r; Strudy - DR650, Smithy - TT600 ['82], Macca - XT600 ['83] & my XS650 'Adventure'

signpost in the middle of nowhere
Cheers

My '63 TR6SS is in the process of becoming a Desert Sled. Still several details to complete . . .

Hello Mr President! This looks very much like the B25T I had back in the mid 70's, an excellent bike and something I dearly wish I still had!

Hey LC Garage, you racing motorcycles this year? I am going to run the same Sherpa S but hopefully will have a heavyweight trials bike ready for 2013.

Am racing at least two races on my modern bike and then taking the vintage twin to Crooked River for the Steel Stampede. We have been making good progress on all projects and once the twin is up and running again should be good to go for at least a couple of seasons. Looking forward to seeing you and that Bultaco!
