Hi Ian,

Hope you managed to enjoy the weekend. I kept my eyes peeled for the truck but didn't see it unfortunately.

Cold enough??

24Hr Trial done for another year. Who won?

Hi to all Adelaide ADV riders.

I rode out to Kapunda on Saturday and watched the start of the outfits and the first 50 or so solo's. What a great atmosphere with all those highly farkled machines to look at. The race bikes have changed a tad since I used to ride enduro's 25 years ago. I saw a pair of DR 650's with swags and the like in the car park so I am guessing there were a couple of you at least lurking around the main control as well. I have been trying to search for the results on line without success, maybe it is too early and the officials are still trying to thaw out!!

Cheers

Had a ball - a well organised event. The weather could not have been better - rain before the start to settle the dust and clear skies during the Saturday. A bit of moon helped during the Sat night and the fog was blown aweay by the wind that sprung up. Had a dozen of us stayed in a cabin on the Friday night and then we were on the road all weekend moving around to some control points and fuel spots giving support to a NSW rider.
Thought the chairs were mad... A couple of us will be back next year riding - thinking don't want anything bigger than a 450 with lights, lights, lights...
That 3rd lap from about 1.00am till 7.00am is the killer.
Ian

Glad you enjoyed it. Some of us live not far from Kapunda so if there's anything you think we may be able to help with next year send us a PM. Good luck.

Here's a link to a ride report on Dirt Bike World you might find interesting.

Hi 1WD

The Underbool Burger Run was a great overnighter organised by my long time no see, burger-munching mate in Renmark so it wasn't advertised. With our old, decrepit, slow & sorry bodies in sand, most of you guys wooda been back home again by the time we got halfway, that is unless you had to rest a few times (if the hat fits................. )

cya soon

Cheers

Well, only 8 days to go till I pick up the new steed. Sounds like i'm going to have to get into training for riding the new bike. Get myself fit for it.

The Andy's arrived yesterday, hopefully the crash bars and bash plate will arrive today or tomorrow.

New tyres will go on about 2 weeks after it arrives; i've decided on Michelin Siracs with HD tubes.

Then there is gadgets and gismos to wire up. Maybe i'll actually ride it as well. Need to get it all sorted in time for the Mungo run, if not earlier. Got plans for a Border Track run as well some time.

Gotta love a new toy to play with.
