I'm thinking Tuesday to Thursday with flexibility of planning to suit the majority. Post up now or miss out.
I can do some mid week rides, of course I need a wider then average track . Pls add me to list...

Right to go

Where can I meet up, east ,west of Roseworthy,Gawler area 1300+1hr?
Great to hear! You did well to get everything on in time

Plan to leave my work by 1300 and head straight up the Northern Expressway. What if we meet you at the intersection of the Thiele Hwy and Main North Rd, on the way up past Freeling about 1400 as you suggest? (I'll sms you when we leave).

Just got your PM BTW too . Flip me your email address and I can send you some GPX files of some track options I've looked at if you want to install them.

What sort of range will you have?

Hi Berty,

Friday, heading to Burra then up to Caroona Creek CP for the night. Plan for Sat is to do a 200km up to Yunta via Ketchowla and Braemar. The a different return loop (a few options here depending on time/weather). Camp Sat night at either Caroona again or over at the old school hosue at Mt. Bryan East. Sun - back to Burra by lunch, and then head home.

I'll PM you with the trip details I just sent the other guys.

G'day lads, for those that have missed it in the flea market and would like to experience too much power for what we do and love it; I'm selling my 990 ADV....

I'm looking at changing to a 08+ 530EXC

____________________________________________


Due to an expanding family, the bike needs to go. I'm not using it like I used to, for long trips and the like. So now it's time to downsize and limit my rides to short day trips near home.

I bought it new from Kessner KTM in Adelaide in December 2008.

It's done 50,319km. It recently had a new fuel filter and o-rings. The water pump was done and the valves were still within spec at the last service.


It's got the following extras:

Akropovic Pipes

Emig Racing Triple Clamps and Dampner

"Hard Parts" Crash Bars

"Hard Parts" Pannier Racks

"Hard Parts" Gobi Hard Plastic Panniers w/ 7L Water storage

"Hard Parts" KTM Tank Bag

"Hard Parts" Carbon Fibre Exhaust Heat Shields

Unifilter Pre-Filter

Rallye-Raid Products Carbon Fibre Windscreen (Still have original screen.)

Ram Mount on dash for Garmin GPSmap 60CSx (I'll look at throwing in the GPS)

Hard wiring for Garmin GPS


The front suspension I have upgraded the springs from .48 to .58 including re-valving to suit the heavier springs. This was done by Hoey Suspension here in Adelaide. (It's way too soft in standard trim.)

Rear suspension is untouched.

$12990
