Spotted a nice DR 650 leaving my house in the back of a van this afternoon.........

Which means that I will hopefully spot a KTM 640 Adventure arriving at my house in the near future.

Spotted a brand new (about 30 k's on the clock) DR650 at Allcycles in Gympie today. Someone doing it all from day one. BB's bashplate; BB's rack, muffler (something like TK from memory) those flash black barkbusters and stickers indicating the suspension had been worked by the bloke at Beerwah. Coulda been more, only had a quick look. Gee those BB racks look alright in the (alloy) flesh.
Cheers

Around Canberra

Spotted today before lunch heading into Canberra 5 or 6 early model GS's, one of them very similar to DFR's new restoration - also a KTM (looked like a 690) and a Triumph Scrambler.

I also past a Vstrom 1000 and a DR at around Exeter heading north.

I was on a Triumph Rocket

As discussed the 690 was Craypots and the Scrambler was moi

Spotted 3 bikes east of Broken Hill

Hi
I saw an F800GS, DR650 and a Honda? about 40k's east of Broken Hill at around 11:30am.
Anyone from here out that way?
It was during a dust storm, very strong winds. I was in a car and feel sorry for anyone who was out riding in that, could hardly see and the car was almost being pushed off the road.

Must have been treible on a bike!

Hi Olddog
I was in Cobar last night, stayed at the Great Western, got there about 6pm and left around 7:30am.
Nice place had a few beers and a feed.

Heh the westerns okay, a bit unrefined but the beers cold and the foods good. No sign of those riders so they may have gone onto Nyngan or something.

Talking Pubs?

Hey Olddog, or anyone else
Do you know of any bars in Broken Hill that have good barmaids, lingerie barmaids etc?

Looking for some where to have a beer. I'm here for a week.
