No worries.

Have you got that long range tank yet?

I did a spur of the moment ride this afternoon to checkout some possible camping spots along the ovens river and had a fun time on the dirt roads in the wet. I might have to look into getting some knobbies for Winter. I came home at night on some more dirt around Balldale and Brocklesby. It was the first time I had ridden the KLR at night and I was very impressed with the stock Headlight.





I am testing some new fork springs at the moment so if the weather is reasonable I might go for a ride next weekend.
If you want, message me with you phone no. and I can give you a call when I know what I am doing.

No unfortunatly family stuff has stopped my chances of doing anything on the bike at the moment, so the tank is still bog stock.
I MIGHT be free next weekend, few things on but i think i might be able to juggle a ride. Ill send you a message.
Thanks Scott

Beers

It won't be hard to fit but I never knock back beer.

The ride was good for a spur of the moment thing. Great weather and I discovered some lovely scenery I hadn't seen before in some areas that I have ridden many times.( Mt Pilot,Woolshed, Eldorado area)
I had no real plan I just followed the hills to see what I could find. I might have to plan a full day ride one day and see who wants to come along.

Yeah, saw that. I had the same thought

Haven't started to read it yet, been working and saving/spending on other projects.

Social Night?

Woo hoo got my bike back today with a spanking new (second hand) safari tank on. So happy with it, barely notice the extra size and weight at all!
Just a thought, but who would be up for a social night/lunch or something, just to put a few more faces to names? A chance to catch up and talk some crap (maybe some of this ).
Get back to me if your interested, and I am happy to organise it.
Scott

It's not a bad idea I would be in that , the only problem is we are all fairly spread out. We would probably be better off organising a ride one day and meeting up somewhere for lunch. Just a thought.

Poff!

Whats wrong with a nice day ride, dinner, a gut full of beverages and the necessary chit-chat and BS, a sleep, and then another cracking ride home?

The Riverina is not that spread out after all... compared to the NT

Cheers
Ian

There is nothing wrong with that. We try to do that as often as we can. But it didn't sound like that is what he had in mind.
