That got me around the 50 metres of deep sand.

The outfit went well that weekend. A lot of the country was similar to the pictures. I didn't drop tyre pressures (rear car tyre 32 psi and front and chair tyres were on 34 psi) and this was the only time I had an issue.
Should go really well when the pressures are dropped. S'pose you can get A/T and M/T for that fat Suzuki arse too!
