Heading put to the airport in a half hour or so. Figure two hours to JFK and the flight is at 6:55p.

I think this is a 22 hour flight to sydney :holy shit

Three hour layover then another couple hours to Perrth


So basically you get six more hours of nervous posting from my phone :)

Good luck... i'm sure it will be a blast!!! And I'd think if anything it should be easier than racing your bike as it should be lighter! Shouldn't that make one less nervous???

Nice. Where are results getting posted? The rally's website kind of sucks. Where can we follow along?

On your mark!

Posted by tanami on September 19, 2012 in Uncategorized
Yesterday I caught up by phone with Jason Adams who is now In Western Australia. He has already done a few hundred kilometers on the Rooney GS special which he described as ‘amazing’ and not at all like the r100gspd he is accustomed to punting through the forest of upstate New York.
The bike has been performing well and has required only minor suspension adjustment to suit Jason. Apparently Paul Rooney and the safari crew have been looking after him well as he seems to believe everyone is “really swell”.
Paul is impressed with both Jason and the machine so it’s shaping up for fun times ahead.

To wet your appetite, Ross Briggs took these awesome action shots below of Graham Grant at the 2010 Safari on the Rooney gs rallye.

He did do a "Double take" as I parked it next to 'The Beast'.
