You dont really expect to see that on WA TV news??? Between the 10 mins of interstate news and the 20mins of sport where would they fit it?

Dakar

Inmates,

I trust you are all suitably inspired by the Dakar this year. Lets hear a big cheer for Rod Foggotter 16 ( but not riding a free race) Ben Grabbam 19th and Warren Strange in 31st. Great effort.

Hope this is is inspiring you all for some serious adventure riding when the weather cools. I was outside Laverton when Cyrel Dupres allegedly broke his toe in last years Safari, but rumour is he found the race too tough!! Not sure if we should be happy or sad if he wins again. Suppose you have to give him credit, it's an amazing achievement.

Yep - you could say that. I'll be saving for one giant adventure ride at the end of the year.

Has anyone gone through the process of "B" Reg on a bike? Wondering if you get to pay stamp duty when you get reg'd for B Class like you do for A Class?

Mate - the dongas were flattened to the ground. Both Ch10 and Ch7 lead with this story, and Ch7 showed the dongas as nothing more than a pile of rubble.

New Perth Rider

G'day guys. Just thought I'd post up and say g'day. Please forgive my ignorance if this post is in the wrong place.

I am keen to connect with local riders for a ride or get involved with a trip.

I live SOR in Rivervale. I've done a lot of riding in SEQ, FNQ, PNG, and Turkey (all on smaller capacity bikes).

I am now riding a KTM 990 Adventure R. It is being delivered from the east coast 26/01/13. (I'll be waiting in my driveway with my riding gear on!).

I'll keep an eye on this thread for rides that are posted up.

Cheers,

2013 events calendar

Was talking to Loose Bruce ( if you don't know him you need to get out more ) the other night about an overnighter down to Cuballing via Guzzimikes tracks, we haven't been down for a couple of years, anyway we got to talking about setting up a few events for 2013.

One of the events would be the Cuballing run, obviously another would be the OCBR in November, Guzzi and myself are looking at another venue for a ride/pissup at another rock out in the wheatbelt area. So would be looking at first weekend in May for Cuballing, 2nd weekend in November for the OCBR ( 1st weekend is Albany hillclimb ) and perhaps somewhere in the middle for the wheatbelt ride. Not forgetting that the Numduc/Numbat Rally is on the June long weekend.

I reckon that we need to get together when Kev and Alex get back from India and have a few chicken wings and beer to chew it over, what do you boys reckon.

here's a shot of bruce in full flight



and some other familiar faces






Guzzi doing the "Bus stop "
