    No the CREB track starts at Daintree Village and ends up just past Wajul Wajul on the Bloomfield track, which goes to Cooktown. The CREB is Awesome !.. . when its dry.

    Well said goodbye to my DR today, it's off to a good home with a Simpson trip on the horizon for her, was a tad sentimental when it left even though I only had it for about 7,000km.

    Been selling all my twins - Qld and HD's arent compatible at the moment.

    Kiz is onto it :) Didnt see C2C or Cape trip in my future so sold it to someone doing some of that next year and stepped up a gear in the comfort stakes. ;)

    Thanks Racca. When I bought my DR, after riding the Husaberg FE350 I thought the DR was a heavy pig, same as when I stepped of the DR onto the Tiger :)

    Still reckon the DR was an awesome bit of kit. Will miss mine for a while I reckon.

    I am looking for the DR650 rider who I met in Busselton a few weeks back who was going to sell his bike. If you read this can you message me mate... Or if anyone else in WA is selling their DR650 and wants a quick sale, give me a shout... Only got around 3000 to spend so not looking for a blinged 2013 model (unless you want to sell yours for that price) :rofl

    Before the weekend I might have been tempted Justin, as I don't seem to get time to ride much any more.
    A trip to Perth on the weekend reminded me how much I enjoy it. The DR is still the do it all bike for me.:D

    has anyone bought a DR650 brand new recently in qld?

    a mate of mine wants to buy one tomorrow and couldn't be bothered doing the usual haggling and going from shop to shop. he just wanted to know what a reasonable deal is at the moment where the shop still makes some money but he gets a bit of a discount..... and just go to the one shop and buy it.

    in queensland over the past year or so i've heard of guys picking them up for $7300 on the road with 12 months reg, is that still realistic at the moment? current price advertised is $7500 with 6 months reg.

    any help appreciated!

    I think that's the going prices at goldcoast Suzuki 7500 ride away. A mate and his brother and Dad just bought three of them but I think that it could have been a little cheaper than that?? I bought mine 2 years ago from the same place $7995 ride away (I'm nsw though and came with 12 months rego).
