When I listened to that recording of his Mayday call I thought "Wow, that is one very cool and level headed person. He can hang out with me when I go fishing anytime he likes." then I read a little bit further into the article and a tiny little bit of me died. Are these organisations a breeding ground for these Tools, or are they magnetically attracted to them? I'm really glad they banned him from using a radio. That'll really work. Bet he starts hanging out at the local McDonalds drive through now pranking the order monkeys to get his jollies.

Righto, about this Pooncarrie/Mungo business. It draws nearer and times a wasting. My bikes ready, almost. Have rebuilt the carbies one last time with the new needle jets from Mick Hone (thanks Masterbrewer for the tip), changed the front tyre to an old K490 that I had laying around, ordered a Mitos E09 Dakar ($130ish from Chappy at Road and Race, cheers mate.) for fitting over the weekend, rebuilt the forks and added a touch more oil to sort the front end, replaced the rusty old bars with nice Renthals alloys and test ridden in. Feels like it'll do the distance with ease. Just need to organise the beer esky, strap the swag on and I reckon I'm good to go still for a Thursday departure.

KevS69 and Masterbrewer, I think you're still go for then. Am I right?

Hi HumanOne/Predator, How do we get the eskies collected by the ute of knowledge crew? Do we ice them up before we give them to you or will we meet you guys along the way at the Thursday night campsite or wait until Pooncarrie or Wentworth for ice? Can we give you money for ice before hand so when you go through somewhere early Friday morning you can ice them down while the cans are fairly cool? Does anyone want to share an esky (for cans only)?

You do all that in a carpark somewhere or at home?

A mates shed. At 10pm I had the bike stripped of all parts except the rear wheel, swingarm, frame and motor. Mate said he didn't care if I stayed there all bloody night, as long as it got finished. By midnight it was done and back together. He went to bed when his wife got home so he didn't get to see my little victory gopher dance.

Speaking of such, TurboRob, have you had your forks rebuilt yet? I do a home rebuild service nowadays. Yell out if you want them sorted. It'll cost you a couple of cartons of beer plus parts.

Sundowner,

I'll happily pay a few cartons for the forks done on the KLR. They're shot after the Melbourne and back run. Leaking and dripping.

Can you do new brake fluid too? I assume it's that - brakes aren't too progressive at the moment.

Please PM me.

Rob.

Mungo/Pooncarie/Top Hut - SA/Vic/NSW Border Run '09 from SA

The plan is to leave Thursday morning:

Meeting Bwvtom (tiger), Sundowner (super Tenere) & TonyRDR (DR650) & anyone else who wants to tag along at Birdwood Cafe 9.15 am Thursday & heading for "The Mullaroo Council" meeting that night at the mouth of the Mullaroo Creek on Lindsay Island (a third of the way between Renmark & Mildura) The inaugural meeting details here: Mungo 2008



Via Palmer/Punthari/Lenger Flora Sanctuary/Black Hill/the suitably nick named by those who have ridden it "Wolfe Creek" track/Swan Reach/Old Loxton Rd/Bakara Well/ & so on to the Loxton Pizza Bar for another delicious steak sandwich sometime around 2.30pm.

The 11km eerie "Wolfe Creek" track



The Steak Sandwich


Then depending on time meandering the river to the Mullaroo mouth for the all important "council meeting"


Next day onto Pooncarie. (last year was a very slow start for some hey Dogs? )



Returning Sunday from Top Hut via Pooncarie/Coombah Roadhouse (fuel) & Dangalli Conservation Park



to a Murray River campsite for the final night/sessiom somewhere near Berri/Lyrup rendezvousing with "The Couger" who will be sailing back to Renmark from the Morgan slip yard in his famous booze ladened "River Rover"

If we can get fuel at Pooncarie, I estimate maximum distance between fuel stops of 280kms will be between Coombah Roadhouse to Renmark via Dangalli.

If you would like to join us (usual disclaimer i.e. everyone's welcome to join me and as usual & understood at their own pace, risks & responsibilities), lettuce snow who we should lookout for.

cya soon

Those heading up Thursday:

bwvtom

TonyRDR

KevS69 (late start meet along the way)
Aussieotto ( ditto )

Those returning Sunday:
