Well done GA, great report and photos. Sorry to see the Beemer played up.

You keep some pretty ordinary company though

Thanks for your photos and story, I check each day and enjoy immensely. Sorry about your fuel problems.
Its well known that the DR is hugely popular in Aussieland, the photos a page or two back of 4 DR's in a row are proof enough - here in South Africa the DR is frowned upon by the owners/posers of expensive bikes though.
Our government will be prohibiting the import of DRs, KLRs & XRs from 2014 I think - a sorry and devastating state of affairs.

Ok, bit of an update.. but no pics.. to difficult to upload etc at the moment..

So, I picked up the bike from the dealer in Brisbane, went picked up all me gear from the hotel n packed it all on etc..

Was just putting on helmet when phone rang .. old mate who'd moved to brisbane..

So spent the night at his place.. next day, used his computer to upload all the pics for that last big update..

Next day headed out... Hit the freeway..

First impressions..

Queensland drivers don't know what the right lane is for..
These e-09 fronts are real noisy..
Engine is a lot more responsive..
Full efficiency has increased dramatically..
Headstem bearings feel like shit...

So 80 km up the rd, I'm passing the next dealer..
Pull in and ask em to have a quick feel.. the mechanic being a technical fella, says"yep, they're fingered"

Got no room in their schedule to do em till next Thursday..!
(This all happening on a Wednesday)

Eventually they move a few things, postpone stuff and say Monday..
Ok, that's better than Thursday, and they need to order in the bearings anyway..

So I head off to noosa and check in to the backpackers..

Today I went down, caught up with Lachy, the oz Jesse distributor and sorted
The missing pannier frame mount..

Then to the dealer and got the headstem bearings done under warranty..

Tomorrow we get this show back on the road...!

Sure seem to need those BMW dealers a lot lately .

Just bad luck or poor engineering/manufacture? Bet your wondering what will be next .

I am just going to order a set of those MitasE09Dakars, so I am expecting a full on/off road review...................so make sure you find some mud somewhere!




.................oh and throw in some comments on those Sidi Adv Goretex boots too..............as I have my eye on a pair.

Really liking the sidi adv boots..!

Real comfy, worn in real easy/quick, fine to walk in..

...maybe a little hot in 33 degree weather.. but maybe I shouldn't be wearing thick winter socks then.....

Haven't hit any creeks etc in em yet but but a few showers haven't given me wet feet..
