But did you rename any waypoints? Trimming might also explain why his program won't display your tracks.

You are not leaving me behind!

Besides I know where Wal lives. It would be a great opportunity to see his big boys toys. Like his 32 foot wide lawn mower.

The other guy is Longone (Geoff from Adelaide) on a DRZ400

Trip around Feb 2014

Mick and I were talking tonight about a possible trip and seeking some preliminary interest

www.dlra.org.au

copy and paste to look.

Lake Gairdiner speed week. Camping available on site for about $60 with toilets and showers. Would be hot too but something for a once off.

No matter what happens XR, you could be the support crew for the ride carrying all the spares and gear in that big bike of yours with the extra pair of wheels and no need to wear a helmet or neck brace. I'm sure the fellas would thankyou at the end of the day when the beer fridge is opened and the coldies are distributed

The new tractor shed. it is huuuge. 35/32 whats the difference, I still could 'nt use it on my yard.

Re: Geoff 's nickname (spell it either way and it still applies)

We could eat at the community road house burger joint or the pub.

JO is referring to my big white VW van methinks. if I have to it would make sense to bring my 4*4 and trailer. As long as the drugs are working I feel fine at present. when they wear off my ribs remind me of the healing in progress.

Hi guys

Back from the Simpson and nearly in one piece!! Had an off on knolls track and had some pain in back. Rode for another day (drugged up) until something went ping. Mate bike out and home but a great trip.

MRI shows fractured scapula and other tears so seeing specialist next week and go from there. It's all good fun until the dolphin catches fire.

Hope your feeling better X-RAY.

Bad luck re : crash Cougar.

Well done to ride out under your own steam though. Balls: big ones !

Eek

Top effort riding through the pain Scotty, would have been a worry being so remote like that. Here's hoping you heal well and fast.''Looking forward to hear of your exploits and how many wines/100km you acheived.

I did not quite make it out (once the last twang went and could not lift right hand/arm)
and had our support driver road it out and he had a ball.

Good wines were had plus laughs ( especially watching get in out of tent and dress!!) they reckoned there was only so much as distance they would give me!!

They are upset that the go pro footage did not include the fall (knolls track)
