    The time has finally come again to launch the Official 2012 Scrapheap Adventure Ride thread :freaky

    [​IMG]

    So on April 6-7, 2012 we will be converging on Kosciuszko area.

    We are planning a bigger event this year for all who turn up, on a Scrapheap bike or your usual ride :deal

    Adventure Moto will be arranging a Scenic 2 day ride from Sydney, leaving on the Thursday, as well as a loop ride on the Saturday! Thanks Steve :thumb

    Our web page is still being updated. Registration links will not be up for about 2 weeks, along with plenty of information and updates. So keep an eye on it!

    www.scrapheapadventureride.com.au

    Rules are the same as 2010.

    Start with a bike which cost less than $1000 and spend any additional sums on the bike to make it roadworthy, all machines participating must be registered.

    Let the Scrapping begin :norton

    All funds raised support Down Syndrome Association of NSW

    I'm in, not sure what I'll be riding as I sold sagy the other day and the new build is progressing at a glacial pace.
    I'm guessing that it may be a bit cooler than the corner LOL.

    This year we invited some classic clubs to come along

    So club plates are ok, also working on a MA solution that will allow UVP's - Unregistered Vehicle permits

    Here we go again Pezz! I can hardly wait. Work has started on the mighty Tenere, and what of the XR460? What needs doing on it to get it to the starting line? I'm in for the Adventure Moto ride too :D

    I'm in for that, where about's in Brisvegas you at?
    I'll be going on the Dommi like last year as i won't have the time to do a scrappa.
    Will possibly have a back up vehicle and a couple of extra guys that might be interested in coming.

    Hope to have Bev ['Mrs Ghost'] with me, she hasn't seen much of that country yet.

    Well it's been a busy weekend for me!!
    I followed the Scrapheap thread last year, thought about it, and that was it, it had come and gone. I saw the new thread, went to the link and WOW!
    I was aware of Pezz's personal story, I had been told it by difernt members on here over the years that I have associated with ADVers,but when I watched the KAK video, I had tears in my eyes. The love in that family is HUGE,and I made an immediate decision that I want to assist this cause.
    Now I am no stranger to Charity work, my boss has raised hundreds of thousands for Variety, and another collegue is deep into Camp Quality, away on a bash at the moment aamof,and I have been involved with repair and maintenance of Bash Cars for 10 years or so
    Anyhoo, Down Syndrome NSW is my chosen charity for 2012:deal
    I grabbed a local rag and unbelievably there was a suitable project!
    The guy knocked a substantial amount off when I told him of my plans, and his wife kicked me off with a donation, so no turning back now!
    The XT looks OK in the photo, but theres a fair bit to do, I have a line on a XT600 with a blowen motor so it may get a suspension/brake upgrade, or I have a more devious plan running around in my head, so...............
    First thing will be regom in the next month so I dont have any hassles in this regard, tickets I can handle!:evil
    Anyway, just confirming, I am 100% in for this:clap STB
