Ha, I still need to officially ask Sven if he's interested, but me thinks he'll be keen, I'll catch up with him on the weekend and flag it properly!

He's definitely into the bikes, and he has awesome cooking skills. Pretty sure getting the time off work won't be his issue either. We'll have a chat and see! I have a back-up if needed, Jeremy (I think you'd know him?) is a good cook and said he'd be keen to go...

Ha, no third tier needed, talked to Sven today and he's 99% sure he's a starter, so that's great news! Quality food won't be a problem!

Dave and I went on a shopping spree. He bought a shitty old KLR250 4stroke for a bargain price. I bought the XR later in the day. Dave's already talking about racing the KLR...after we bolt a milk crate to the back of it, to collect the bits that fall off both old shakers.
Lots of fun bike prepping ahead of us.

Oh, and I want orange team shirts...
My first aid cert is still current Dave. Apparently with CPR it doesn't matter so much if you hear ribs crack when you're doing chest compressions. You cool with that ????

Michael, make sure you let me know if any of the lads are using your beautiful creations so I can take some shots of them for you to flick up on your website.

I'm cool with the ribs cracking, but adding tongue is out...!
