You can see it in the background leaning against the door. Busy trying to find a strap for it now.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Now that is service. I owe you boys a beer.

I'm flat out today getting final packing done for the 20th time. Pretty sure I have too much equipment, but am planning to camp most nights. It won't take long to work it out, and can post surplus stuff home if not required. The cold high country stuff is on 2nd half of the ride, so will wait 'n see.

This years rally is said to be more technical than in the past, and it sure looks like it from the maps. Should be a great way to see the Great Dividing Range, Western NSW & Vic High Country.

I've pretty much rebuilt the bike in the hope of getting through it with no major dramas. I have fitted new UHD tubes & tyres - D606 rear, HP4 front, antisiezed spokes & chain adjusters, new brake pads, new wheel bearings & seals, all bearings greased, cables checked & lubed, new chain & sprockets 15/46, tank & radiator mounts tweaked, new light bulbs & harness checked. Front and rear suspension has been rebuilt, properly by a professional this time. That dodgy, lying, rip-off Caloundra suspension mob can go and fuck 'emselves. WANKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Montana GPS is hardwired into DC circuit and works well. This is fused & switched, but I have a supply of lithium batteries to run it seperately if required. LEDs on the same circuit, but won't use these unless I have to.

The bike feels heavy, but balanced and solid. I've done a couple hundred km (wet) shake down ride this week, and realised pretty quickly that I am going to have to pull my head in and treat this thing with respect if I want to avoid a DNF. The weakest link is definately the rider in this case.

We depart Marburg QLD tommorrow at 7am and head north. Here is a link to my spot tracker.

I will try to send pics and info along the way to Sean or Phil & he can post 'em for me, thanks mate.

Cheers, Smithy
