Just got off the blower to Kenno and he's keen too. I am going to meet him at Smithfield at 0700 Monday and we'll probably plod up the range to meet you somewhere if your keen. I haven't ridden Black Mountain Road and am keen to do at some stage but it may be busy so can play it by ear. Maybe you have some ideas and we can just roll with it on Monday. Pm sent with my mobile number

Hi all,

I have been pestered by my sons to find a medium distance track we can go exploring on.

Boys are on CRF50 and CRF70, (me on XR) so can't be crazy far, just want to explore further than the Edmonton motorcross track.

Any suggestions, thinking probably the tablelands. 7 hills is probably too extreme if it is even open.

Please PM if you want to keep them secret.

Thanks,
Ray

Hi Ray, saw your post a bit late but I am heading off with my young fella this morning to a track suitable for the young fellas with some soft challenges.
Will send a PM with the meeting point.

April fools day ride

Ken and I got together on Monday for a ride up around Black Mountain road and thereabouts. Ken's local knowledge is impressive and he showed me some great fun tracks. At the end of the day, we really only skimmed the surface and I look forward to some future exploring with Ken as guide.

We were too busy riding to stop for photos all of the time, but here are a few.

Would you like salt with that ?...

Fork seals.

By the end of yesterdays ride, it was evident that yes indeed my Fork Seals have blown. After taking Ken's advise about a certain e-bay trader and dodgy parts, I visited Wayne Leonards today to see what they had. They usually have in stock, good quality non genuine seals for the DR but were out of stock today.

I was offered to order some and so given the outstanding, friendly and no pressure service that I received from their spare parts division, I ordered them even though they are probably twice the price of the internet thingys.

I feel confident they will be of quality and fit and that they will arrive in a timely fashion. Will keep you posted but for the meantime, Thankyou Wayne Leonards. It is refreshing after the crap service that I used to get from my dealer in Darwin from whom I had bought two brand new bikes from.

rides

Hi Kenno,
i went on black mt road a couple of weeks ago with a mate. Nice ride, want to do more. I have restored an old 87TT600 which i will ride to the tip in June. Let me know if you are doing any more rides, maybe we can tag along? I have made plans for June 23 departure if you know anyone up for a ride to Cape York, 9 days up and back. Have a support vehicle as well.
Cheers,
Shane 0407161734

Hi Shane,
I might join you on that Cape Ride, we should be well and truly back from the Finke, I stopped 200k short last year so would like to complete the ride.
I used to ride my Brothers TT600, loved it!
You are always welcome along, pick a spot on the map and we'll go there.
