2 nights in Gascoyne and then 2 nights in Exmouth...... Ahh paradise....lovely beaches, BBQ's and beer, maybe not for you blokes...but the support boys will be right..... just need to find the best way to get the truck from Murchison to Gascoyne without using the 300 km rough dirt rd ( Carnarvon - Mullewa rd is a "bit "corrugated )

Road up to Butchers is only 14kms from Murchison, the other 290 to Gascoyne is the worry, most ofmit was pretty good, to drive around probably means a 600km detour

Can't believe it's that easy for you to get back into the country. Well done. You're going to enjoy this years event, fella. This will be something special. You're going to have a lot of fun with the action the team will bring. Bully's going to be the Head Teamster and bivouac wrangler. With the double up of two night bivouac locations, you might actually get to enjoy some of the countryside you've been blasting through the past many years. Don't let him lead you too far astray. (It's fairly inevitable ) He really is a bad influence from all reports I've seen. Looking forward to "The Gathering of the Cahns"

I've always just carried 2 bladders in my camel back. No need to carry 2 liters on the bike.

At scrutineering they just ask how I'm carrying it and show them the 2 bladders and never been a problem.

I wont say that they were both full during the racing stage as I'm sure you can work out what you need to do there!

I've been trialing Gany's Condo proven Giant Loop Mojavi saddle bag system on the XR. So far it seems to be rock solid - flaps around a bit over big whoops but really isn't noticable during regular riding. Holds on with the rear clips around the back guard and front straps around the frame near the upper gearbox frame area. Have crash tested without issue. Holds my tool roll, spare thin 21" emergency tube, puncture repair CO2 kit, critical spares and room for the 2 litres of water in a bladder. Was going to go to the expense of a water tank equiped bash plate but I can't see a reason to now. Has also resulted in now only needing to carry a 3litre bladder pack with a bit of room for some food bars and bog roll, etc. That's a huge weight off my shoulders, so arm tingles/discomfort while doing long days is gone. Worth considering if you need a simple, affordable solution to gear carrying and this water storage issue.

A bit more sand training. Just myself, Neil and Matt today.


Neil started causing trouble before we even started. Bike was cutting out.




He then went hunting for the steepest bit of downhill dune he could find to roll down




DO NOT let Neil lead you astray, he loves doing daft shit and then luring others in to doing the same. He proceeded to get back up the dune (pretty much to the top) while luring Matt into his devious trap.








I believe Matt is muttering in his helmet something along the lines ....... "Donat warned me about him, I knew I shouldn't have followed him"






At one point I toppled over and the exhaust tried to cook my leg ..... Note to self "FIT HEAT SHIELD to exhaust on RHS of bike" .....




Lovin' the little 350 =8-)
