Great Day

Fantastic ride...10 riders, some old favourite tracks, some new ones, great riding weather, no dust, a cool down sprinkling, fresh smelling Aussie bush.

What more could you ask for.

Thanks...

My K75RT has a K100 diff so it runs 500 rpm lower in top gear. That is fine in Aus where there are less mountains.

Sorry to hear about the withdrawal. Tough, tough day by all accounts. Great campaign & preparation, much more than most of us can ever do.

Hi Jay

No send off?

Can you give us a bit of info on the riding prep you have done e.g. Long hot rides, maybe similar terrain, sand, rocks.
