    Did it last year. Damn why did I decide not to do it again this year?

    Will probably do it next year. I seriously need the fix of a challenging and fun 14 days on the bike.

    Enjoy the ride guys ....... As many have said already, it's not a race. If you treat it as a race you'll either come to grief or you'll miss lots of the little things that make it what it is.

    Don't hurry, don't worry, don't forget to smell the flowers (or mud/sand/high country air/snow)

    Ran into a mob of WA riders' at Mt. Glorious who were heading to Marburg for the off tomorrow. Lots of work has gone into the KTM 690.

    There was also a bloke there on a 1200 Triumph chookie, you can just make out part of his bike in a couple of my pics; he only had one bag and was intending to pub it. I wished him good luck when he got to the desert and he just grimaced. :lol3
