    I'm taking the car down as I need a fairly quick return on Sunday, and really the car is cheaper to run :huh, probably have my offsider with me anyway

    OK I count 7 for food, so I'll grab 10 BBQ packs, get some bread from the bakery down there and some sauces and a special salad for Howard.

    I'll be heading down to try and make the 10 AM start, but want to do some dirt down there....so Dwellingup, Nanga, may cut East to some smaller tracks towards Asquith OR

    OR

    from Nanga continue on Tullanulla to Collie and then south to Nannup, picking more dirt along the way there.

    I reckon I will leave home [Doubleview] at 6:00, giving 4 hours to get there ~ 270 km's.

    Jamie & Ian let me know what your plans are ....I'm happy to adjust.

    I had planned to leave Kelmscott at 7.00-ish, smell the roses on the way down and get there whenever,
    at the speed that I ride, I should be there before dark :rofl
    I have emailed a Garmin file, of the rough route I intend to take, to you and Jamie.
    Jamie to the Bat-phone.

    Thanks guys.
    Staying upright and not coming last are my goals for the weekend.
    Ambitious I know, but we'll see how we go.

    Ian & Koos will leave Byford Caltex around 7 AM and head down via Dwellingup > Nanga > Tullanullu > Collie > more dirt to the Special close to Balingup.

    Hoping to be there to see the motos come through.

    Will catch the rest around there or in Nannup.

    Good luck Howard :clap

    I left down there this morning Howard had managed to keep it upright all day yesterday. Grabbo had a nice little chat to some of us about Dakar and his commitments (or lack of ) for the year. No Warren or Matt this year though the field was down to 10. Be interesting to see what happens next year.

    Well done Howard, awesome riding on the big girl and great to see.

    Davey, good on you for helping Howard for the weekend.

    Bully thanks for the arranging the accommodation and organising dinner and brekky supplies….and the guard dog. Big thank you to Ken & Trish for the Nannup hospitality.

    Ian thank you for company and the route down to Nannup…..everyone for the companionship and putting up with the “when we were riding in Bolivia…..” comments.

    *I made it home from the QFR ok. Just slabbed it home on the hwy due to an ever increasing fluid leak.
    It really made itself known 10km out of Nannup where on closer inspection the tell tale under the water pump had a mixture of fluids coming out of it. Mostly coolant.
    $122 in parts and l should be up for a test run this Sunday to Poppo food van for lunch or somewhere similar.

    Great weekend although l may have had a sleep in the gutter for a while at one stage, have to wait for photographic evidence. Good company/food and exciting cars and bike to watch.
    Hillbilly sure can ride that big girl around. Great stuff.

    Top weekend chaps, well done Howard and Bully.

    Went home on a bit of dirt and a bit of tar, the bit of tar felt a lot longer than usual on the Two Fiddy.
