Thanks, just entered and paid.
One more question, are we going up or down the Carricktown track.
My wife and I went down it and I had to ride her bike for her on some of the sections, Having to walk back up the steep hill to get mine wasn't easy. I also had the 1150 trying to get away from me, a full tank didn't really help. The R80GS only weighs 218kg, so it should be quite a bit easier, but I won't be all that fast, that's for sure .
Up, down is way more fun though.
The views would be better down, but with all these rocks rolling around I ended up concentrating on the next hairpin. I am happy we're going up, but I might change my mind later, when I can't get going again, without being pushed.
last year I followed Padmei (The Magnificent) up there, and a guy on a 690 got between us and I nearly fell off laughing watching the guy trying to pass him. Everytime he saw an opportunity, Padmei and his cylinders would block him and he would have to back off and try again. Laugh out loud in your helmet stuff.
No fricking KTM pansy is gonna pass the bavarian beast
it's a good ride up that carricktown track & the knarliest section I took Schmidt on last time. Coming down the road was bloody long - it seemed to take a long time to get down to the main road. Being a soft arse I wish there more shortcuts
I guess I'll try to stay near your bike this time and make it a proper road block, like the ones you get on the motorway in Auckland.
I am about to book a room or a cabin in Fairlie, haven't looked at Alex yet. Is there anyone who is looking to share a room, or has a room to share? I can bring free earplugs.
The room I booked in fairlie at the Galdstone Grand was the last room available and is a two bed room so I am happy to share.
Room is booked for Friday and Sunday nights. Earplugs essential. You have been warned.
First in first served.
First in then , I hope. I guess the pub noise will drown out snoring anyway.
See you there, I am the one with the cool motorbike.
Excellent, but I probably wouldn't even mind if your rode a KLR.
It maybe red... but it's still NO Honda
Wow, registration has filled fast... only 3 spots left for the event!
Just did mine. Hopefully I can find a bike when I get there in mid December. (Anybody want to rent one of their extras out for a month? Will pay )
Just clicked on registration and all 150 spots are taken.
Missed by that much
Only got the bike finally sorted out with reg/insurance etc today.
Is there a back up list if some one pulls out?
Who be the person I contact?
Keeping fingers crossed.
Or there is always the good old fashion method. How much (in real dollars) is needed to grease the palm
I know nothing
Pondering the idea re back up list, expecting a few to try this route. Contact me via this page http://www.db1k.com/contact.php to get your name on the list. Terms likely to be first in first served, no meal or merchandise and only if a space comes free i.e. no guarantees of a space.
Dollars - well wife wants a new bed
This ride might become a victim of its own success.
Have sent you an email and we will see what happens.
PS How many persons bed does wifey want?
Big enough so that when the 2 year old trys to sleep in it sideways he doesn't push us both out. Little bugger gives my kidneys a work out more often than I care for.
That changed the tone of the conversation enough for ya. No where near as exciting as it could have been!
Looking forward to another Great Dusty Ride this year...
Cheating a little and bringing the KTM.....
