Great bikes!
Woohoo, I multi-quoted

Unless you're planning on going for a few weeks I should be right

May be sans bike , but I can race you there in the mighty corolla some time.
Would be a nice drive and good to meet another fellow inmate.

I have a few bikes in the fleet for you to choose from here Dave... Well done on the multi-quote!

3 Streets behind me is about 70 acres of bush with a pretty basic, open junior MX track in the middle of it... Even suitable for the big KLR...

No idea on what has been done to my TRX. Only know the Magnum mufflers that are on it are LOUD!! I can easily hear the exhaust over the wind at redline in 4th (about 200 - on a private road of course!) They are a quirky bike but fun AND comfortable on the open road...

KLR suitable?? I like the sounds of that!! Are you up to give us a tour of the bushland near yours? (missing the dirt)

Yeah, no probs... There's not a LOT of bush around up here but LOTS of pretty good gravel roads and quite a few salt lakes up at Cowcowing which is half way from here to Koorda...

Also going to see about organising an ADV weekend ride/camp at West Moto Park (about 6 K's from my house) when they reopen in March/April...

Well msg me if you want to go for a spin, I don't mind the ride there. Not many folks are out on the weekend these days so any excuse is a good one!

Still up for an evening night ride (test the spotlights) if anyone wants!

Got to solve a fuel leak prob with the carby on the pig before I take it further than the shops in town...

What happened to the ride with the yank that's here for a few days? I thought I subscribed to that thread but may not have...

Sounds like a nice break from digging up rusty verandah posts.
Can't talk you into a morning of sand somewhere? I need more practice before Bremer Bay.

Probable around Mt Dayle, Hills and track out the back. Mainly Gravel not sure any sand out that way. This time of year the sand around Perth just kills the bike.

carrying the country..........again.

FFS I wish people could buy up enough toilet paper and baked beans beforehand so I didn't have to deliver more on a public holiday, just a bit of foreward planning would be good.
