Suzuki Dr250, specially prepared by Team Inverell Member, for conducting the pre run of the route to be taken on the Charity ride on 30 August.
Note the essential equipment secured to the bike and the latest in communications equipment fitted to the fuel tank.

When travelling the wilds of the Inverell District, on a bike such as this, you never know where you may end up or when you might get home.

If it belongs to the respected member of the Inverell community I'm thinking of, I'm surprised theres no firearm mounted somewhere!

Looks the business though

It is concealed in the front light and is only used for blowing KTM's out of the way.

Don't you mean putting them down after they become mortally wounded?

Give Aways

There will be a few lucky Draw prizes during the ride.

One is a "Free" entry to this year's SAR.
With a bit of luck, Pezz will be there to draw the ticket.

Question Answered

A question has been asked in regard to the difficulty of the ride.
A. The track consists of secondary shire roads and farm tracks that a two wheel drive vehicle, with reasonable ground clearance, can negotiate.
Saying that: there is one section of about 300 m that may need a bit of thought.

Another Question

Do we have a GPS route to download?

A - No we do not. It is a led ride utilising the corner man system. Every one will be given a map in case they do get separated from the group or need to exit the ride early.
Reason - Within Team Inverell, only one member owns a GPS, and he doesn't know how to use it. We usually depend on a map, good luck and dead reckoning. This way we get to travel longer distances.

SAND!!! I hate sand. That said, I hate hangovers too but that doesn't stop the excessive beer and wine consumption so we will still be there.

A couple of us are leaving Coffs Harbour Friday morning, probably heading up via Old Glenn Innes Road and back Sunday possibly via Guyra. If anyone wishes to tag along or join up somewhere let us know and we will keep an eye out.

Cheers
