Nice to see you lurking on here, no room in your busy life for a new bike yet? You could always borrow one of mine if you fancied coming up to the Flinders - about 83 sleeps.
No new bike as saving to take the family to the USA. Thanks for the Flinders offer and I will see what happens closer to the date.

So I'm looking at replacing it with a KTM 450 EXC or 525 EXC. (ears out for anyone with one ). I'll probably buy myself a track bike too. This will allow me to get the family involved with the bikes and weekends riding.

Am I crazy?
G'day Aaron, yes Cass told me the good news, congratulations again mate..

A mate has recently purchased 2 new Triumph Cruisers for him & his wife & he now needs to sell an immaculate 625SXC & a DRZ400, low kms & have only been used for cruising on dirt roads, he lives near Norton Summit.

Cheers, Dave..

Being both Gemini's, our birthdays only a few days apart .................... you being the elder ..................... it makes you very aware of making the most of focussing on quality of what life you can have now, to the max.

Hang in there ol' boy you're a classic ........................... errr a "Flinders Classic"

I'm thinking about that story......

In the meantime, get through this ride without running out of fuel and I'll never say another word about your 'issue'... Trust me, I'm from the govt and I'm here to help you.......
