Awesome pics! Remember--it ain't your bike, you don't have to fix it if it breaks. Ride it like you stole it!

Strength in numbers

Hey! A thought that might help Jason & Paul in the future; If enough people write to the Safari organisers, via their website, or facebook page, for a video interview with 'Team Rooney Racing' (Paul & Jason) with some footage of the R65GS in action, they might actually take notice of the ole boxer and do an official general interest story,

That would make a great piece of memorabilia for us all and more importantly it would become a very worthy piece of data for Jason's CV for any future team rides and events. Nothing like an official media release to attract some attention.

If you'd like to give some support to a fellow inmate, here is the Safari webpage address; http://www.australasiansafari.com.au/website/home.html

Competitor # 38 (1983 R65GS. Oldest and best bike in the moto line up)

Good luck Jason!!!!!!!!

Enough to break the tank mounts which yoinked a hole in the tank. Not wanted to spill any precious juice into the pristine environment i drank enough to get the level undr the hole and pressed on.

Also ripped out a spark plug wire, but thankfully the bike is dual plugged so it had four, and i discoed one coil, and ran on two plugs. Also munched another throttle cable bit splinted it with some tape and fence wire. (that shit finally came in handy, lol!) then finished the stage.

Did my twenty minute aetvice in 27 minutes and started stage two.

Finished in two years, fifteen minutes.

I think they did stage two in miles, not kms... It was a bugger. Long day. Finished though! :)
