Would be a muddy run out today!

I'm back home after a few weeks in Asia itching to get some dirt under the KLR. Got to rip around an industrial area in a stripped down CRF150, great for the locals but it struggled to get me up to speed while I struggled with the controls!

Any one out for a Sat or Sun dirt run? Refueling available, hehe.

Border run

Bully I am interested in this ride.
Are you doing a far ride or just cruising the black stuff to get there?
Work and a passout from misses may yet get in the way!
Are you on bike or chair?
Don't you dare say you have given up the drink!!

Ttaking 2 days to get there and home, leaving early Friday, heading out through Hyden to camp on the 90 mile straight, leaving an easy day on Saturday to finish with. Return trip should see me camping out at Lake Johnson or thereabouts on Sunday night. Home by mid arvo Monday. Taking the Paris Dakar. Chair is still not finished

Brewery would go broke if I stopped drinking.

Bully, that border run looks to be a fun trip!

Learning to change gears with the new MX boots, bit dodgy but getting hang of it. Have some armour, bark buster type guards, grippy pegs and decent helmet for the bush so the bike and myself are better setup for the dirt.

Any recommendations for a track logging topographical mapped GPS? Colour and decent size would be cool.

Jay, you out in the back yard this weekend? I'm good for a run anywhere Sat or Sun with anyone willing to go for a rip. I can take some fellow nubes to Sawyer valley power line track if guys are up for it as I don't know a lot of places just yet that I won't get lost haha.
