No the CREB track starts at Daintree Village and ends up just past Wajul Wajul on the Bloomfield track, which goes to Cooktown. The CREB is Awesome !.. . when its dry.

Well said goodbye to my DR today, it's off to a good home with a Simpson trip on the horizon for her, was a tad sentimental when it left even though I only had it for about 7,000km.

Been selling all my twins - Qld and HD's arent compatible at the moment.

Kiz is onto it :) Didnt see C2C or Cape trip in my future so sold it to someone doing some of that next year and stepped up a gear in the comfort stakes. ;)

Thanks Racca. When I bought my DR, after riding the Husaberg FE350 I thought the DR was a heavy pig, same as when I stepped of the DR onto the Tiger :)

Still reckon the DR was an awesome bit of kit. Will miss mine for a while I reckon.

Question Looking to buy in WA

I am looking for the DR650 rider who I met in Busselton a few weeks back who was going to sell his bike. If you read this can you message me mate... Or if anyone else in WA is selling their DR650 and wants a quick sale, give me a shout... Only got around 3000 to spend so not looking for a blinged 2013 model (unless you want to sell yours for that price)
