I was talking about a 230+kg bike Garry. when most of the others would be around half of that.
I would be surprised if anyone was slower.
I will try to get down for a look this year.

Quit Forest Rally Promises Plenty of Action on Four Wheels and Two


Date: 10-Feb-2012
Australia's leading off road enduro bike riders, quad-bike exponents and the newly announced Side by Side ATV challenge competitors will do battle over a challenging enduro course as part of the upcoming Quit Forest Rally at Busselton in WA on 31 March-1April, which will also be round two of this year's Bosch Australian Rally Championship.
While the car competitors in the Bosch ARC will lead the Quit Forest rally away, the impressive array of Side by Sides, enduro bikes and quads will attract plenty of attention from fans and some of the top riders and drivers in the category from all over Australia. The motos, quadsand Side by Sides will cover close to 200 kilometres over two days using much of the rally route along with some select detours from the car event to spice up the challenge for the off road machines.
According to Ross Tapper, clerk of course for the Quit Forest Rally, the Moto and Side by Side section of the event will present a wide variety of challenges for the bikes, quads and side by sides with all of the back up and safety that comes with a round of the Bosch ARC.
"The inclusion of the Side by Sides gives the event even greater 'critical mass' ensuring our viability but more importantly competitors will have an array of conditions and challenges over the rally route. Spectators will also have plenty of action from the Bosch ARC cars, the Classics and the new SUV category as well as the motos, quads and side by sides," Tapper added.
Headlining the moto entry will be four-time winner and reigning Finke Desert Race champ, KTM works enduro rider Ben Grabham, along with his his brother Husaberg works rider Damien Grabham who is the defending Quit Forest Rally moto champ.
Three-times Australian Rally Champ Cody Crocker will be piloting the works backed Polaris RZR in the Side by Side Challenge at Quit Forest Rally making a comeback to an event he has won in the past with Subaru. Fighting it out with him and the many privateer Side by Side competitors will be former WRC campaigner Michael Guest who is the factory driver for CanAm.
"The fact that two of Australia's best moto enduro riders are travelling all the way from Bathurst in NSW to tackle the Quit Forest Rally says something about what we have achieved with the event over the past few years," said Ross Tapper.
"Above all we have set out to make it a fun event and one that everyone can enjoy with 216 kilometres of competitive stages with many of the stages in clear felled forests which will mean spectators will be able to see the cars, bikes, quads and side by sides for vast distances," he said.
The rally will again kick off on the evening of Friday 30 March with the hugely popular Busselton Toyota Super Special Stage on the foreshore in Busselton before hitting the forests around Nannup, 100km inland on Saturday and Sunday.
The Quit Forest Rally is now one of the major events each year for WA's popular South Western region and is sure to draw huge crowds to the Busselton stage and in the forests across the weekend.

I hope I passed my "Clerk of Course" exam otherwise we need a "Plan B" or everyone gets to stay home for the weekend.

The event is shaping up well. Should be a real hooot for everyone!
Ciao

Give it a couple of days and then everything should be available on www.rallywa.com.
I don't think entries on the day can be accommodated but we will have day licenses available. You would have to join the club to take up one of those. It will also be necessary for the bike to be presented for machine examination in Perth the week beforehand, unless you're not residing in Perth in which case arrangements can be made for a examination in Busselton. The bike needs to have the necessary nav gear (roadbook scroll) but it should be relatively simple to get sorted to enter.

Cheers
JayBo

Hill Billy I am certain based on last year given the general open flow nature of the firetrail course, even with the course mods proposed this year that a GS could hold its own very well, in fact I think the perfect bike for this event is a KTM950SE with good firm suspension, it would hose pretty much all comers

Next best would be a worked over Berg FE650

Great. so all I have to do now is find someone to lend me a 950SE or a 650 Berg. I'll start asking around.
I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be drawing any comparison between a standard GS and a 950SE. With the GS having half the suspension, 1.5 times the weight, and a19" front wheel, not to mention about half the power, that should make it about the most unsuitable bike there.

That didn't stop you trying get up that slippery gnarly hill on the no name.
Not to mention your, errrrr, "well being" at the time.

Now, isn't this right about where Pilbara turns up from left of stage with his stripped down SE, the steering damper screwed up and a fresh labotomy scar hidden under his redbull sweatband (another present from Cyril )

You guys just want to see me hurt myself. I can do that in the pub on Saturday night without the risk of damaging my bike.
I will look at the regs and see how much will be involved to comply. I'm flat out at work and won't have much time for bike prep. If it looks easy I might have a go.
I lent my nav gear to my mate for the Yilgarn last year and it is still on his bike. I don't like my chances of getting that back.
