3 or 4ks and thats it there's not much else down there all the good stuff was closed years ago.

This is begining to sound tempting.
It'd be good to meet & greet as well.
33.33% for me at this stage as I may either be at Lameroo with the Areil bretheren or getting dragged along to the Hospital by the misses as her sis is about to pop one out
How's that for scenarios

Hey DRTrev, not selling your PE are you?

Read the ad, they're not too bright around that Gawler area

What sort of start time did you have in mind? I might be free for 3-4 hours in the avo if the kids will give me a leave pass! (Yeah I have to ask them too now!)

Wouldn't mind seeing your new toy! (BTW - time to update your avatar! Unless you're sentimental of course).

I've taken the GSA down the main 4WD track to the lookout above the beach, but not all the way down (from memory, was a walking track only). Only nuisance were the concreted rock speed-humps on the way down - first time I really wished I had steering dampers.

I get back from Mt Barker at 11.30 so if we head out from Meadows Bakery around Midday we should fill the arvo quite nicely! unless another start location is preferable, Bubba is coming up from Mitcham as well. As to where to go, the mouth could be a go, the last trip down to Goolwa was great, if you don't mind replicating a big chunk of that ride, I do some research on an alternative route, unfortunately Sunday is Brownie Point day for me.... Cough cough I meant fortunately.

It's the urban sprawl heading further north. Should buy it for the spare parts seeing as it was made 6 yrs after they finished manufacturing them...

No, not mine Kipo. I actually had Capt Kaos show me how to ride it and the thing's got a sh*tload of go in it, so I might keep it for those enduro laps around the Robertstown property, and anyhow, how could I sell something that the missus bought me for Christmas.....

The line in the ad saying it just needs 'break' fluid and it's good to go. Oh, hang on, perhaps he ment 'brake' fluid, well that makes sense now, them drum brakes must need a top up

Keep it for next years 'Classic', there might be a couple of 'Classic' bikes in attendance

Remember our moto: "Old blokes on old 2 strokes, what could possibly go wrong?"

Not sure I could trust its 'all or nothing' power band. Might be down to the Tenere only by next year's event. Who knows?

Might have to have a best 'Classic' trophy though.

Will have to get up to Blinman for a few days in Sept, will try and encompass a weekend and see if you guys can get up there.....nothing serious, just a few reds and a campfire...

ish........I've got 5 weeks off from work between 29/8 and 3/10, one week in KI in an attempt to deplete their stocks of King George Whiting until 7/9 and then will have to fit in with a couple of other lads I ride with, but we will get up there.

Been doing some research, I reckon we could have a look at range road and then duck down to Cole Crossing Road.
And then deep creek road across to compass road, play around nankita area then onto Goolwa or Deep Creek NP
Any thoughts?,

I'm being forced to have 1 month A/L starting next Monday.
Thinking of a trip to Mt Dare or similar.
But can take more leave in Aug/Sep when/if you can narrow down a time.

Pooncarrie is 3/10 BTW

Talk to you @ the 24.
