What do you think about riding to TK's cairn on the Sunday? Might be a caravan park owner doing the same thing from Peterborough and then contemplating staying at Blinman Sunday night on his way home.

Bernie has bought a WR250F and wants to dial that in over the PAR's so he'll be doing constant laps out there just getting used to what the little sceamer can do......he'll be at one with it by Monday!! Once he's worked out what it needs I think it's getting a rest down with GSMoto.

Flinders ride

Hi SA residents,

As an ex-pat SA living in Victoria (go Power!) I am looking for some suggestions for a ride in the Flinders in October. A couple of Green Triangle riders are planning to drive over to Stone Hut, leaving the trailer where my sister lives, and take a few days to tour the Flinders region. So does anyone have any suggestions on good tracks on GPS file or a route sheet format, or just good tracks that we should ride?

Thanks in Advance.

No rude comments on my choice of team. I get that from my Crows supporter wife already.

I'm happy to do anything. I did want to see TK's cairn & put another rock on it.
Are you thinking of riding to Farina & camping off the back of the bike?

Riding and dinking.....cups of tea naturally......do it get any better?

PM me your email address and I'll send you two word docs with great rides out of Blinman. My suggestion would be to either set up your base in Blinman or Angorichina Village in the Parachilna Gorge and work out of there. There's endless rides all over the place.......time is your enemy.

Pete, I think he wants to ride over there and camp alongside the bikes one night. I might take a swag, chair, food and red. A ride to TK's cairn has an attraction.

Dilemma

With the weather starting to warm up should I start keeping my stout in the fridge instead of the laundry?

Staintune

Finally got a chance to remove the Staintune muffler on the weekend.
An "as new" standard muffler now sits in it's place.
Very happy with the decibel reduction.
Haven't had a chance to take it for a spin yet but warming it up on the stand and giving it a rev didn't produce any backfires.
Staintune without the insert was just too loud and with the insert wasn't that much quieter....just moved the pitch up a bit.
Might offload it.

I know someone with a 640 ADV, he might be interested if you flog it.

Mate you have gone so soft!!!

Here's a bloke that is known for having the loudest bike in the known universe that shoots 4' flames when riding though dry tinder mallee...standing proud as punch when blokes from Murray Bridge hear him start the bike in Callington...

Now he takes his little soft stain tune off...what next mate...ear plugs...maybe some road tyres

I have just finished repacking the Barrett on the 610...
