day 2 was a bit tougher in places but still fairly easy going
took the national trail out of woods point then awsome twisty tar to licola
then back into the clouds on moroko rd up to the pinnacles
pinncles were awesome
robin reckons hes been up there on windy days and snow gets blown up vertically from the cliff face

the barry is always good
found a big stick and taped the cam to it and held it up in the air about 2 metres above robin
a forby came round a corner and saw 1 bloke on a red bike chasing another with a big stick!

theyre demos
not sure if they did the apc
theyve got around 12 000 ks on them so far and we might clock up a few more sedate little ones
yep could definitly use some help for the wa leg

err
met up with woody and his mate from adv in jindabyne
and had a coffee with them
not a latte
and that was the end of the first leg

next leg will be early jan

oh yeah, the poll wants carnage
,
sorry
this is the best i can do
robin reckoned it hurt like hell
but i dunno
seems to be smiling to me

We have fixed them by just by cleaning and lubing and the prob is gone.

The 675 guys that are racing often buy manual screw type adjusters to their bikes and i think thats something i would look into adapting to a tiger if i was using it offroad alot
