Just back from Adelaide. Spent new years with Mr & Mrs H, annoying Leigh whilst he tinkered some more on 'Trek II'.

Happy New year everyone. Hope to spend some time putting in some miles with all of you, at some point or other.

To that end.....

Australia Day weekend - Numeralla Folk Festival


Easter - Honda Broadford Bike Bonanza - Broadford. I've already paid.


July - 24 Hr Reliability Trial. Should be 21st & 22nd.


September school hols - 2 weeks (+?) NSW tour. Plan is that this will be Leigh's first proper tour on Trek II, with the first objective being the Sidecar Rally - Bridle Track on the first weekend of the hols. Then heading east & south on as many unsealed roads through to Omeo & Dargo as we can find. Including the 'stone garden' or whatever it's called north west of Sinny.


Straight in to the serious stuff

who's on for the Numeralla ride again?

Not holding him to anything, but Donks has suggested that he may guide some rides on the Saturday/Sunday, like last year.

Do I waste my time by starting another thread, like the coast ride which attracted no one? (hey, maybe it was the way I typed it.?) (okay, there is no 'maybe' about it.)

Not at all mate.

TDMs have been known as Tediums since they were released. I thought it was a universal response for anyone who spoke English. I seriously think it put people off them.

Of course, it may have been the weird styling, or the price comparison.

Give us an XTZ900, I say. With the TRX engine, apparently that's the one.

Give us another TRX whilst they are at it.

It was neeeeerly as good as this one but nothing beats the awesome sound of the KLR tearing up a hill.

There was one corner towards the end of the video where you could see how much the bike was walking around on the knobs of the rear tyre. It really was unnerving.. Doubt I will ever use a mitas stone king again unless it gets incredible milage.

BTW - nice job with camera work Ray. It seems that you have the angle pretty much spot on to get just the right amount of picture in the frame.
Would be nice to get some footage of the XJ one day.
It's all good, mate.
I've got another camera - Sony this time. I have to work out how to use it. First thing I've discovered is that the auto-off is set at 10 seconds. which is not long enough to get in into the case, let alone have it mounted anywhere. I bought it knowing that it's a turn on / leave running set up. That gives me the option of turning one on & off or, mixing stills & videos or, two simultaneous different angles etc. I'd like to get a separate audio recorder too - mic close to the exhaust sort of thing. One for 'ron.

One thing to remember about these videos is that they have some meaning to the people in them, or on the ride, or whom have some connection to the participants. Not very entertaining to others. That's fine with me.

Maybe I'm just making a catalogue of every rider's road in the country? Yes, one can work out speeds without needing the speedo visible.

Hey Trichromatic (look it up Unc ) how's your shoulder going?


Just back from a from a 700km ride - up through Jindabyne nearly to Adaminaby, met some mates coming from Tumut, came back down through Corryong. The others are heading to Anglers Rest tonight, I came home via Granya. I discovered today that my DR has heated grips, heated seat, heated screen, in fact heated bloody everything Might head up Hotham tomorrow and meet them as they head back (if I get the feeling back in my arse by then )

Saw what looked suspiciously like a Bergdonk near the Buckenderra Road turn off ????

Not I, been playing in the shed in between resting my still dodgy knee fine tuning and servicing my mighty DR. The recent story starts here at #371 FWIW:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...646076&page=25

GP tomorrow and surgeon on Monday are booked in. I hope to get a ride in on Sat, the first since Mimosa with you bolkes, but dunno, gotta work through the pain barrier.

As far as FF weekend is concerned, I'm hoping to ride then too. I'll know more as it gets closer. If I can't, I can still give you maps, or something.......

But Unfortunately I will be on call that weekend. So I am out

This one interests me.
Was thinking of taking some time off about then. Will have to look into it further to see if I can make it.
