IIRC... I thought I remembered SethS saying something about Austrailian Customs being very strict about the cleanliness (lack of dirt), on items coming into the country. I think it had to do with foreign contaminants/ organisms etc. that may be carried in soil, not native to the continent...

Hello sir...I'm the one on the left and drc42 is on my right. This was taken at black river stages and Doug had crashed the previous day. Those are his crutches. Jason got me into rally so I felt it was an appropriate photo.

OH...OK then! GO Jason!!

here are some posts on his fb..

saturday
Hensley posting as Jason - arrived safe in Perth and comfortably installed in a tent in a caravan park until the Safari begins! Threw some sausages on the barbie last night (this morning?) and planning to do some bike testing tomorrow.

sunday
Hensley posting again, Jason doesn't have internet access so I will try to update until he can post some pics! First day of bike testing went very well - put in about 80km on power line type trails through sand. Getting used to both the bike and the terrain - but felt good, very little jet lag! Plan is to continue to put in at least 2 -3 hours a day on the bike for each of the next few days, and work out any kinks. So far, so good!

Today
(from someone down there linking his name)
Jason Adams Is getting real comfortable on the bike, had a good run today....
Is looking forward to some more riding tomorrow!

Its going really well so far, the bike just keeps getting better. Did another 150k's yesterday and am about to head out again. Paul is a really superlative gentleman, and we had a splendid dinner with Ken (my other support guy) and his lovely wife last night.
Im having a hard time posting picsfrom FB to adv via my phone, but will asap.

Last night in caravan park tonight, moving to biv tomorrow.

Thanks Jack!

Here's more news:

On your mark!

Posted by tanami on September 19, 2012 in Uncategorized
Yesterday I caught up by phone with Jason Adams who is now In Western Australia. He has already done a few hundred kilometers on the Rooney GS special which he described as ‘amazing’ and not at all like the r100gspd he is accustomed to punting through the forest of upstate New York.
The bike has been performing well and has required only minor suspension adjustment to suit Jason. Apparently Paul Rooney and the safari crew have been looking after him well as he seems to believe everyone is “really swell”.
Paul is impressed with both Jason and the machine so it’s shaping up for fun times ahead.
