Thumb nice RR Shaggie

nice report Shaggie - great narrative and nice pics - we (XF650 and myself) arrived at the Dansey's Pass Pub just as you were leaving. We came back over the Black Forest Station in the opposite direction on Monday in fine conditions.

In the Haka on Friday I managed to 'belly' my 1150GS riding two up across one of the fords - had just enought momnetuum for the exit

Cheers Aslan aka Stephen

Nice, I've got to get down to the Brass sometime...

...but why is the back tyre on the XT on the wrong way around? Did your mate decide you would be better served by an excess of braking grip instead of orienting the tread for maximum forward traction as per normal??

Cheers
Clint

Went to the airport last night and found this interesting looking DR650 in the carpark. Hmm I've seen that before me thinks! (sorry about the cell photos).



Cheers R
