Too true.

I was so excited on my first and only Condo I forgot to use the rollbook for the first day.

The Condo folks are just awesome. You WILL feel welcome and if YOU are realistic in your ability then I guarantee a brilliant weekend. Who knows? A lot of people start with Condo and end up a crack at Safari.

If your interested in Off Road Rally, Condo is the perfect place to get your toes wet.
Thats what its all about to me anyways and some high lighted bits have some interest too.

Just get my head around this Navigation first.

Where is the Australian Safari 2013 thread in Aussie land forum ?

What maintenance work are planning on doing? Air filter of course. Oil & filter? Rotate tyres & lube mousse?

How much black top is there typically?

So looks like I may need to look for a little help here after all.

The signs are not good.

SWMBO last night: 'do you know this place is 460km away .. that's a lot of driving for a weekend' ... how are you going to get to the starting line every day at 0700 ... does this mean I have to get up at 0600' ... 'I really hate sitting in the dust for hours on end waiting for you to show up' ... ' could you not do this without us' ...

Not good at all.

Got worse when I looked up Condobolin on Google to try & see what entertainment I could offer. Looks like the Condo 750 is THE event of the year ...

Not good ...

Nice post. I remember that hill, I took a few seconds at the top to take in the view.

You could ask just about any of the other bike crews to on the Friday night, everyone is very helpful. My dad is tagging along as crew again this year, we can help you out if needed.

Seriously: that would be great, everything is much easier with a little backup. Particularly at my first Condo.

It is a good idea to find someone close to your own pace.

There is normally a mid morning service meet up and then a lunchtime meet up and it's likely a service crew could be late for lunch if there waiting to long at mid morning service.

But everybody is always willing to help out just ask.

Hope to see you there.

Ben.


On a side note:


Could anybody make some off these or know somebody that could.


I can supply dimensions and other info if needed. Happy to pay for it.



I'm sure if some smart chap turned up to Condo with some they would sell pretty quick at a fair price.

I rekon this is a great idea, send me the dimentions and i'll make em up for anyone who wants one for a fair price. I got the tools ,skills ,time and the space.

Excellent work mate. You won't be disappointed. Just ride to your ability and plan on finishing, and I promise you a great weekend you will remember for a fu_king long time.

Sylvia,

If Gimme2 rides to his ability he will not only finish, he'll be in at least the top 20, if not 10.

And I'm talking if he was riding a 990 Adv fully loaded with panniers etc.

Good luck Hein! Being behind you watching you mono fully through every flooded creek on the Birdsville Track at xxx km/h () was inspiring to say the least.
