I'll just sulk for a week, untill my No 2 team beat the Kiwi's. I'll feel better then.

But, it also means I can ride the whole day for the next two weekends.

It was a great defensive effort for sure.
But man, how you guys didn't win is a mystery.
But read it in the papers Koos.

Thanks for the good ride today guys - once we actually got going (I'm glad I gave you a chance to have a latte - while I practiced my puncture repair technique).

Neilaction, Yep I'm definately going on the no name.

G'day mate - it's all luck of the draw I think - I just waited two weeks, but Alex had a wait of a month or so. I placed my order over the phone and they said that they had a new batch just coming available to distribute - maybe demand outstrips supply ....

HI Vince

Got sent that by someone else as well today. I am sure there is some footage about a skippy doin the same in Aus. I know I have had a few close to me on the bike.

See this video for a mate almost running into camels on the Anne Beadell on his way to Neale Junction from Cooper Pedy in June.

Frome about 45 secs in.

Mate I got fixed years ago after the birth of my third child

And as far as my leg goes - the cast gets removed on Thursday 27th October, so I'm planning to get down to Bridgetown for the long weekend, but I may just take the road bike - still a bit undecided at this stage.

And Koos - that's a top video of the kangaroo - talk about bad timing ! It's in the APC Rally thread, from memory - check out http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=368

If you want to see how one of them goes then let me know when you're in town next and we'll plan a ride with Wasp and the Club Dildo boys

last one that I did with them ( and Joel ) there were a couple of 6fiddy's on it, best stuff was Saturday arvo ride back through the forest, best riding thaat I've ever done, 3 12gs's and an 800 going hard, what a blast !!!!!

great riding company and had a few beers and a great feed at the pub after, talking about going down and doing a Sunday "thrills and spills "with Staino and crew. just gotta see what happens with the shoulder, do I do the ride before or after surgery

I'd probably do that course but it's hot on the heels of the no name.

I really need to get the hang of riding in sand.
