Noticed there was quite a few "stalled engine" shots in there. How's the gearing on the T? Is the 1st as long as the old Tiger's? Any good off-road?

FEEED ME!!!! PLEASE!!!

Looked like an editing thing to me. Vid starts again with restarting the bike rather than a stall

Nah he's just a learner rider.

He hasn't quite mastered clutch control yet but he is getting better.

There's new fuel maps and a recall for some idling issues with a warm/hot motor... If you have the stock pipe it's apparently more a problem, but a couple months ago Triumph released a new map that made some of the Americans happy (no more complaints at least) and I picked it up on my last oil change even though I never had a stall that wasn't my own fault for falling asleep at a red light.

If I wasn't such a n00b I would be busting to come along. I'm really happy to see my baby doing it right vicariously though.

I haven't really tried to mono mine but looks like you had no probs, even with a knobby on the tar -- it does look like you had the tyres already at pressure for the off road fun. (by the way, 20 psi? What do you recommend for that load and rocky stuff?)

Sir rallyfan plans to dust off the Scrambler and lead us north from gingabyne
and burren rider and lentilhave got the route north from bathurst under control
wiggy from wilcania will be along as well
Hope to get the gps files for this leg up some time
but for now, heres a map...reading maps is good for the soul
we used the rooftop series and the detail was awesome
day 1
melbourne to woods point via warburton,big river and mount terrible
You have a plan, WTF, I thought you were just going to point the pointy end, crack the wrist, and HOPE for the best!!

yep err we are big on planning and the plan was to get the gps files up
but
err
i realized as i left melbourne that i didnt actually have a gps
if anyone has a cheap garmin 60 theyd like to sell let me know
anyway
day 1 was a few pages back and you should be able to trace it on a rooftop map
it was
melbourne
warburton
reefton spur
big river
mnt terrible
knockwood bridge and
woods point pub, altho theres awesome camping nearby
theres no fuel at woods point but if ya stay at the pub, the publican will sell you some from his private stash
its an easy half day ride out of melbourne
