I agree.......



yes work is a bit ordinary,

It is gettting so bad that I have started scanning the AK thread again and found a F800 for the old boy and a F700Gs for moi sitting in Anchorage just waiting for us....

the 800 sold on sat....

planning to go again in 2 years, still more to explore and maybe go for longer (90 days as long as we can get ?) and maybe buy bikes and sell when we are finished, down to Canada and ??

the old boy has some crazy idea about following the migratory routes of the fluffy bird things and go south with them to follow the weather......plus we didnt ever make it to Haines and ......

Or just sell up and throw the last son out in the street and pack the bags and not come back for a few years.........
tempting.....

PBee and I are going up to the Robertstown property on Tuesday next week for a couple of nights. We have some fencing to repair for the owners plus Pete's taking his DRZ. There's room for a couple of regulars to come up if they want to. Not expected to do any work but either for camping, riding or just chillin'. BYO tucker and refreshments.

Ps. Anyone got any cheap s/hand star droppers?


Cheers

I could do with the droppers Marty. We have everything else. Do you remember how to get there?

Thanks for the offer but might be a while. Back now & hopefully back for good after November. Heading to WA in a few weeks.
Haven't got a bike going to come up for a drink - 650XC stuffed master cylinder, 1200 still on a truck some where from Kununurra, 750 needs work, postie hasn't gone for a few years & sons 650XC in pieces getting ready for ride back to Perth. This retirement lark is seriously complicated. Hopefully catch up before Xmas.

Excuses. Don't bother bringing a bike. Beer, wine, tucker and sunsets on my agenda. Swag and a few good laughs will round it off.

No worries Kiz, not sure which gate we'll use. If normal one locked just use the next one with a yellow rubbish bag tied to it. You, Backonthebike, Pete and I....that will do nicely.

We'll be up the top at fence line below Pop's Hut, I'm sure you'll find us. If we use the second gate, just follow the track straight up the hill....rocky but easy.

Let me know if I can take anything for you, we'll have plenty of esky room and cooking facilities. Seeing as we're working I'll bring a shower too.

Phones should work.

Hi, long time, no post!
My son wants to head up to Port Gawler on his Pit Bike, but I heard rumours it was closed?
Any Adelaidians know if it's still open?
