All trials riding all the time.

This just came out, though, thought you all might find it enjoyable:

EDIT: WELL I'm not surprised youre confused. HEre is the link I meant to put here: duh: http://www.australasiansafari.com.au...ldecott-winner



The longer version should be out in Tales From the Bivouac, www.tftb.org, and the RA mag and MOA have said they would publish, as well.

AH, nope! Stuart got a chance to take a spin on it, though. Paul Rooney owns it, and as a matter of fact is planning some changes to it for the 2013 Safari. I think in that quote, Stu is talking about a bike that Paul built up for him, but maybe he'll chime in here and make it clear He's Tanami on the forum, I believe.

Here's a link to the Paul Rooney web site if people don't already have it, I think "Tanami" set it up for Paul.

Nice fix man! Though after seeing you weld feeler gauges together to make dragonflies I don't know why you're so proud of welding up a muffler

mixed message...

Easy to be confused...The quote and the bike in the picture are not related. That picture was taken shortly before (or after?) I took the bike for a quick spin more then two years ago I think. 10 years ago Paul built a special for me that I had to sell. I now have another that is very near to completion.

I've dug out an image or two of 'my' first Rooney Special...It's been posted around a bit so you may know it....in fact it was later remade into the bike you may have seen with Rooney frame.





Oh, and nice repair Jason. I recall during your ride in the Safari last year Paul had commented to me upon both your capacity for improvising roadside solutions and practical resourcefulness.

I was thinking of you this morning. I had just heard of the sad loss of a friend in NY, so nice to see you are well. A big world at times.

Stu

Tanami screwed with this post 02-24-2013 at 04:44 PM Reason: additional words/images but mostly shitty punctuation.

Heh- really fixing something is as satisfying as making something goofy, but pretty to me, anyhow, but thanks, regardless

Thanks Stu- sorry about your friend. All are ok, here, thankfully.

Nobody really mentions the Post Traumatic Rally Syndrome.

Well, I spent the last two or three nights getting things together, and am getting the last bits and bobs in a bag, today.

Extra lights, all the gear, the first aid kit, which tools to take, the possible spares, the entertainment kit for the 24 hours of driving its going to take to finish this project

Plus getting the kid on the bus from a two hour delay today, getting breakfast in her and lunch on her, clothes on her, ok fine, wear pajamas to school if you want but take these clothes with you for gymnastics, after... No you cannot take the giant life size teddy bear to school with you. It will be in the car where you left it when you get home today.

Oh crap, I have to go to work, but I havent finished folding the laundry so that i can get the new load in. Screw the dishes, I still need to run the spare clutch cable and get the bash plate on. I just want to relax and drink rum when I get there tomorrow night, not frantically fix crap!

Haha!

Don't worry, I don't mind fixing other people shit, so I'll certainly help out. Just packed my shit and mounted/balanced the new tires and zipped on the number plates. Ready to go. Lemme know if there is anything you need that I may have and could bring. You gonna make it in time for dinner?
