BTW, SA is looking absolutely stunnning at the mo'
Pine Hut Rd is just a few kms down the road from me, and yes, it's absolutely gorgeous! I don't know the history of the actual property (though I could find out easily enough), but I do know that there was a father and son team who worked for approx 7 years building the stone walls in this area.

The road from Eden Valley with the oval on the corner was the original Pine Hut Rd but was renamed (can't remember what offhand). But you can go down there (and that's a nice ride too), turn left at the intersection, and you'll come to THE Pine Hut Rd on the right. Or you can just follow Jutland Rd from Springton (turn at the pub and it's about 15kms out of town...when you hit dirt, that is Jutland Rd). If you keep going down PHR, you will eventually hit bitumen which is the Cambrai-Sedan Rd. Do be aware that PHR goes through private land and there will be stock grazing on the road. And better warn that there are a TON of roos around here so keep a look out.

Hiya, just added 4 more people to the list, sorry about being so slow, had other things to worry about...

On a postive note my 625 -
just got the forks resprung and tweaked.
rejetted the carby
oil/filters/fluids
new rear spring (oooo so much better)
new drive sprocket
new throttle cables
re-jig of the steering dampner

Taken it out for a squirt the last couple of weekends and its 10 times better than ever before, but as of last Saturday now I have a throttle sticking issue, which is becoming a real issue... like when I smashed through a tree and snapped off a few 2 inch branches on my bark busters and chest armour....

Cornerman System



With a few new faces possibly turning up, I thought it would be appropriate to refresh everyones memory on the "Cornerman System".

The principle is simple:

1. Leader: He stays out in front at all times and leads the group at all times. All riders ride behind him.

2. Sweep Rider: He always stays at the back. All riders stay in front of him at all times.

3. Cornermarker: Any rider who is riding immediately behind the leader must stop and mark the turning/junction indicating for the rest of the group to know where to go. He must stay at this post until all riders, except the sweep rider (see above) have past him. He then pulls away in front of the sweep rider.

If the sweep doesn’t arrive then there is a problem that he is dealing with. The cornermarker needs to hold his ground until the lead group returns or the sweep arrives.

Faster riders can come through from the back to re pass others in front of them except the Leader, but N.B. use caution & only re pass when it is safe for everyone & yourself to do so.

If you are aware a bike is behind you, you can indicate which side you want him to pass by eg sticking your boot out on that side. If you want to stop, it is good to use a stop hand signal and pull over to the left.

No one then has to race to keep up, just follow the cornermarkers (and there could be several).

I always find it also usefull to keep an eye on the rider immediately behind you, ie if you lose sight of him then slow down and/or stop to offer assistance if needs be, that way the group won't get too far ahead.

Happy & safe riding

Woo Hoo! Another KLR. G'Day Chris :-)

Bike has been running like a bag of crap recently, well, it went in to Boltons today to get the new inlet manifold fitted. Didn't make it there though, had to put it on their ute from Edwardstown to the workshop. It was running so rich it eventually died and wouldn't restart. Anyway, cut a long story short, there were up to 10 or 11 ANTS in the float bowl, and it was stopping the float from closing, hence the flooding.

Where said ANTS came from I have no idea! However, it should run like a dream from now on.

:)

Mike

Doesn't the 20,000 k service cover checking for ants?

Looking forward to Saturday. Haven't been back to riding for long, expecting to form a deep and meaningful relationship with the sweep.

All the best.

Chris

You would have been right at home in the recent Flinders Classic, Mike



Maybe it's the new KLR anti freeze system they're using
