Easter 2013 I rode a well-sorted RaceTech/Ohlins-equipped R100GS to Patarau and back. It was pretty bloody amazing on the tarseal, but not so good on the gravel. It was okay-ish once I started to get...

Anyone fancy a fossick around in Hira forest tomorrow? I have finally got the 640 back together. Not up for any road riding until it gets a WOF and rego (soon as I can swing it during the week).
