This SA riders section is about as busy as the Rundle street markets, any noobs lurking would think there wasnt a SA riders section, I had to look for this thread way down in the bottom of the files

Yeah, welcome Pete. Kipo could even be a lost fogotten relative seeing as his family invented Port Wakefield.

Hey, Johno, what's wrong with Elizabeth?? Some history maybe??

If you're friend is still looking, I've got my KTM540SXC going for $3800 now. He won't find a better machine for that money. WP forks, new halogen enduro headlight, standard tank but spare plastics and all books, registerable. Going to advertise it here as soon as I sort the indicators and dash. Yell out and I'll tee up a test ride. Should have the Tenere back together this week as well.

The 24hr Road Trial is on the 10th of next month. Anyone keen on having an overnighter bbq/piss-up get-together trackside? Have a couple of great spots in mind for the campsite (but still need to confirm the event route). Meet up near Adelaide like usual and ride to the location via a butcher and bottle shop. Real basic - swag on the back, beanie to stay warm, bag of wood, sleep where you fall. There was mention in a thread already but thought I'd throw this in as a reminder/feeler. Post up if you're keen. Chance to cheer Kipo/Knackers on as they circulate.

My transmission has the same problems as it had last time - happened last week at the end of a pretty good ride, apparently thousands and thousands of $ isn't enough, there needs to be another thousand or so added to the bill.

So I haven't been coming in here cause it makes me annoyed I can't ride - again. Means the 24hr is out, just like the Flinders Trip got missed too.


^ that is an understatement.

I looked at CT110's on eBay today......

I have never managed to kill any other bike I had (I dumped one in a creek and had some slight issues after, but all pretty minor, oh and blew a piston on a 2-stroke - but thats my fault, and its a good project bike anyway), but this thing, blimey, treated it nice as pie, and its still being a cow.

Hello there, been lurking in the digital shadows of this forum for a while now. Thought better do the decent thing and introduce myself. Im based in the northern Suburbs and have been riding for all of 2 years. Currently have a 08 DRZ400e with 17 litre safari tank and an 07 SV1000n. Did have an 08 KLR 650 but after the SV came along it didnt get a lot of use so I re-homed it for a reasonably price . Ive been in Adelaide for just over 3 years now after moving from Ballarat Vic.
Busy few weekends on the Horizon with Hattah weekend, 24hr Reliability and a 4 day riding trip in the Flinders. Would be great to tag along on a weekend when Im free.
