I just wonder what the skids looked like!

Then again, maybe not....as you were gentlemen.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Thanks for that Joe, by the look of Lentils posts, Tim deserved a few cleansing ales!

Hope to the Tiger out and dirty on Monday. Between mates weddings, kids school & sports, dental emergencies, work, study and working on the house I haven't had much time!


At the moment I'm doing timeline & costing for our Cameron Corner/Birdsville/Popple Corner trip.


Did you get the electrical stuff sorted? Did it end up being just the soleniod?


Pete

I asked a few people what the two relay's were next to the battery, but didn't get an answer... fingers crossed, swapped the relay and seems to be good..

Phil called earlier and said that yesterday was some of the hardest sand riding he had ever done.
They woke up to find a puncture on one of the bikes today so had to fix that before they set off.
