Oh and in breaking news looks like the KTM is getting the gurnsey for this years SAR. Yes yes I know I said my intent this year was to actually make it there and back without the assistance of a trailer, what can I say, guess I like a challenge! I'm in the middle of a full on engine rebuild now, plus a few new cables and tyres, and gonna fit a total loss 12v lighting system to it. Some of the guys over on the OZVMX site are helping out with tech info and support. Looks like a few of them might be coming along for the ride too, now that would be something, a few old dirt bikes cutting up that track up to Fords Bridge....the smell of two stroke in the air...mmmmm.

Be good to see you there. Book a room sooner than later.
Make sure you keep a good watch in your mirror when you are leaving Bourke as the Team Inverell Ag bikes might scare you as they go past. Can you image the pace we will be setting.

This is what you will be up against. Notice the fine lines of the Safari Tank,the touring water bottles mounted over the head light and the optional right hand side stand.

Sort of. It is a Scrapheap way of fitting some engine protection. Footpegs to be welded on.

NEWSFLASH

Just in from Mudgee

OldDog, obviously suffering after a LONG festive season, is thinking of a 'change of bike', which is legal under Scrapheap Rules and Regulations, from the not overly sensible 1981 KTM 250 2 stroke to something a lot more sensible!! Must be the Mudgee water

And on a serious note - Does anyone have any good dirt road route suggestions to get me and Pezz from Mudgee north to say around Coonamble? I'm thinking this thing will be a pain in the butt (literally) on anything but dirt.

Cheers

Head for Goolma, then up the Dubbo road for about 10km, right on to (I think) lambing flat ck rd and follow through to the highway, comes out near Cobbora. Then head for Mendooran, mostly dirt. After that I'm a bit out of my territory, although it is sealed on the main road to Gilgandra from there.

You just have to survive the first half an hour and then you get to ride in the car with Pezz, whose bike wont even make the start...
