Rolled a PD down a ravine....

Here's what happens when you go single-track with a 580 lb R100GS-PD in AZ... Came up over a steep incline and the track made a jag to the left at the top. Front tire washed out right and the bike and I rolled over and down the ravine. Soft ground made the tire just dig in so took the tank off to lighten by 60 lbs. My buddy (sitting) would lift the back out of the rut and the bike would move 3-4 feet before digging another hole. Repeated until got it to the top, refilling carbs along the way. I love that bike.....

Put some knobbies on that thing, Stephen!

Metz Karoos or Dunlop 606's both work great.

I tried big Kanobbies, but most riding in AZ is dirt road and pavement..... HUH....What? What did you say..!?

Rarely do I need them for 'normal' outback so have Anakee as compromise.

BTW... is the the ol' Lornce of the Great White North I used to know....?.... The guy that made me buy a Buell by accident on Ebay in 2002? Still have that monster.

Good to bump into again, Stephen.

S3's a great bike. Have you tried a Uly?

Ha! New it was you! Rode the Uly and didn't like it. Rotax is cool, but bike didn't perform how I expected. My GS-PD is easy/cheap to repair and is all the mule I could hope it to be. Here's a shot of my Bad-Boy-Buell with a few farkles added to it.

He wasn't even clever about it. Note how you can clearly see where he dipped it in the mud holding it by the front tire. Sheesh....at least you could have smeared the front a little so it wasn't so obviouse.....

I have a mono too, and the tail rack is connected well in the back, but the front is only connected onto the plastic cowl, which means it's only good for bags strapped to the rear seat and small loads on back. I've never seen a good tail rack brace on our bikes with those Integral case holders.



Thanks -
Can't find anything on my rear rack except that it may be a "Reynolds Rack Model 231". It comes in two pieces. An "H" frame that bolts to the sub-frame with a welded cross piece that bolts to the rear fender. The second piece is the actual back rest, top rack that bolts to the "H" frame. I've attached some pics.

A great weekend away for the oz boxerworks 1981 RS 30th birthday bash (or something like that)
Lined up for breakfast before we all headed different ways home,







inside the Tintaldra Hotel I spotted this next photo on the wall- anyone know the story?
Brad should like this one




back when I was probably still mastering the use of two legs and starting to use the toilet like 'a big boy' there were bearded baddasses with determined looks like this riding around the world on on what would become my dream bike, popping wheelies on a bald rear tyre, with jerry cans on its jugs and a seductively cool and relaxed looking girl hanging off the back.
Hell yeah!
I think I just found my favourite airhead image!




(p.s. this is a poorly edited composite image of two I took trying to remove the flash reflections. I have no photoshop on this computer- anyone want to have a try at melding the two photos I took in order to do it better than me? PM me)
