Come on Sean, you know all XRR's look the same except for Diggers. It'll be red with two wheels and a kick starter.

Now as for a ride, we should be able to get a few of us organised for at least a day trip somewhere. I could show you the local loop around Clohesy River - Davies Creek - Tinaroo area. Not a bad day depending on one shitty hill.......

Good question, never actually measured it but fuel normally isn't an issue. Servo at Koah and Emerald Creek if need be.

What sort of riding ability though? It's nothing to challenging except for a hill or two, in the wet it's a bit slippery in places.

Hi Ken,

Planning any mods to the XRL? I see those extra wings on the tank have gone already.

Hi Ray,

I will set it up just like my 94 & 00 even down to the kickstart but will put extra high risers on for the bars as well, when I ruptured my Kidney up at the OCR is was terrible up on the pegs for 165klms but I had to keep the vibration away from the abdomen.

Hi Folks, I'm Brett , aka, Chewy,I've half moved to Cairns, got the important things here but keen to get out and see some of the sights around this neck o the woods. I,m here till the new year ,so if anyone is able to show me around a couple good tracks over the next couple weeks ..... I'm keen. Then i gotta go back and finish my house in Delaide. Any one suggest a good place to buy tyres ? Any 1 with a XT660Z tried a few different tyres to now what works best here. Hope to catch a few of you soon otherwise toward the end of Jan. Chow 4 now.

The DSMRA guys are pretty active in and around Cairns and a good buch of blokes.

Scroll down here to find Jim's contact info. Ask him if he's got a Berg yet, he wanted one badly after he rode my FE650.

Hey guys - return to Aus time

Globalstar Coverage....

heading over in a month and considering getting a sat phone. Globalstar 1600 are cheap $200 or so and there is one kicking around for even less.

I understand their satellites are being upgraded so there are some coverage gaps

http://www.pivotel.com.au/optimum_coverage.php

Anyone have any experience with these phones and coverage

Looking at the Qualcomm 1600 tri-mode. Heavy clunk but I don't really care as I have a top case to shove it in tho I suppose a pocket might be smarter.

Thoughts? Options??

Any suggested coverage plans - this is all new to me.

TIA

If you stick with the Iridium system you will suffer less dropouts and disconnects. Slightly more expensive, but IMHO a lot more reliable.
