Spot trackers are great, give you peace of mind to know somebody is following your trail online, and if the worst happens you can press the sos or breakdown buttons, from Innamincka to Cameron corner I didnt see a soul till I got to Cameron, but from Cameron to Tib Seen quite a few riders on the scrap heap ride, just depends on the time of year and school holidays etc as too who is about, I suppose there is plenty of cockys out there, I'm not sure. but probably best to check in at Innamincka let them know where your going

Im sure If sundowner or PBee logs on they will tell you more info I think they have been all over the place

PBee's new Bum Jewelry

Thanks to the eagle eye of Stuart (Gateshutter) I aquired a new bike today.

It's a DRz400e, Late '08 with a genuine 3500km on it.

Them wot know me well, know I've been looking for one of these for a while.

It's got a B&B bash plate, Bark busters, Bar risers, Rad guards, Rear brake cover, LED tail light Number plate assy, Fancy stickers, Grippa seat, new tyres.

Rego just ran out.

All for $4500.00.







Did I do good?

Looks bloody good, well done & have fun,...lad at work got a new DRZ400 for $7700 on road with a bash plate thrown in the deal...good deal as well.
I might join the DL650 clan later in the year, can get good deals on them as well.

Thanks Dave, the funny thing is I'm stripping it & going thru everything and the bloody thing's still got all the restrictors in it.

The engine can't have been thrashed, oil is as clean as a whistle.
