c109r is a go

Got the c1 out for a bit of a thrash yesterday. I know a 900 lbs bike on the dirt is not everyones idea of a good time. But I had a sh*t load of fun. And a very big thankyou to ockrocket aka Steve for being nuts enuf to come along. Cheers Peter

I do question your sanity at times Peter.... power sliding a cruiser around corners on the St Albans-Bucketty road seriously? ??

It was a great day out though, I needed a good wander in the mountains, haven't had time for a day ride in ages.... thanks for suggesting it.

Will you take a dirt oriented bike next time please.... I was shit scared we'd have to pick that bloody great Mofo up out of the weeds somewhere along the route.

Better looking than most modern dual sport bikes, long wheel base low centre of gravity, easy road, what's the big deal

I can think of about 350 reasons not to do it.

I do the Parramatta rd, to & from work Russ. The St Albans-Bucketty rd is a lot more fun . Going to build a bash plate for it. Then get on some more advish roads. Are you busy next weekend Steve

I've taken an M109 along the dirt from St Albans back to Wisemans but not all the way to Bucketty. Lol.

The big deal could be the 120+ on the dirt Russ.

Peter,

At this stage I'm busy this coming weekend, I will check my roster for free days next week though... maybe I should take the Goldwing and we can head out Comleroy Rd- Wheeny Creek and Wheelbarrow Ridge Track, just to make the day interesting.

Hey Russ,

I just heard from Peter, he now has knobbies coming from the US for the Boulevard.

Could this beast become a serious dirt bike

I will be hanging even further back next time.... bloody thing will be a serious "rock chucker".

Had to buy a bike lift for it today{can't lift her onto the stump}. Duro hf 904 rear is going on the front. Thinking about a 4b4 tyre for the rear.

Well I can understand not being able to lift the bloody thing on to the "service stump".

How about an old jeep service recap for the rear? they used to be great on my old Landrovers.
