    I just got home from a great day on the bike. 6 hours and 350 km. Loop started with Taylor's run, fuel at Kapunda then over to moculta, down the pipeline, back up sedan hill, then through the Barossa ranges down cookes hill to Palmer, then back up through mt pleasant to williamstown for lunch.

    After lunch a bit of black top fun out to cudlee creek and back to one tree hill before going to the Barossa goldfields, allendale road then to trial hill and some more Barossa ranges roads to end up in angaston, then black top back to one more Taylor's run ride to end up here.

    Top day. I need to find a midweek riding buddy I think. This is too good not to share. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I was working today on Calton Road in Gawler. I hear a motorcycle start up inside the neighboring garage and either crash into the back wall or fall over. A lot of swearing commenced then I saw this helmet come flying out of the door, land at the end of the driveway, break off the shield and roll all the way across the road. The bloke came out of the garage and dribbled his helmet like a soccer ball for 40 metres back to his shed...lmao[​IMG]

    Ozjuju mate just a small tip the tenere is not a trials bike, but hats off for the effort at 40km/h.

    Wishing you a fast recovery, hopefully you get back to the saddle soon!

    And take care bad luck comes in trees :pope

    All,

    Just come to SA from the eastern states and a keen Adventure rider. Have two BWW 650s, a Dakar and a X Challenge and keen to latch onto regular riders either on the weekend or weekday. Live in Kingswood and flexible with ride times.

    Welcome aboard GG. A great bunch of blokes here IMHO!
    Usually plenty of choice for rides - both local and longer trips.
    We're pretty well scattered all over the place, which makes for plenty of options.

    Welcome Graham. Quite a strong crew of adv riders here in SA with loads of riding options. Have a think about the Flinders Classic (see thread) you would meet a fair cross section of local riders up there.
    Cheers

    Yep Advrider.com's been great for me, after getting back into riding last year after a long break I had no one to ride with, but now after being on here for a short while I've made heaps of new riding freinds and been on lots of great rides, thanks everyone and thanks to Adventure riders.com :clap

    Thanks for the welcome guys - what is the best way to find out about the rides or make contact with those planning rides in the future.

    Hey Pete, maybe we should organise a 'welcome aboard' ride. I know it's close to Christmas an' all, but I need to bed in the suspension on the Tenere once I pick it up from Hoey, probably Monday, and I'm very eager to see how it travels.

    I see that GG has got a stable of BMW's, do we need to carry any special tools, emergency beacons, coffee grinds??

    Got a couple of commitments down at the shack over the next few weeks though, had a flexihose let go under the sink on the top floor early in the week (for a few days :cry).....so me and the insurance company have some dancing to do.....but I might be able to take part in something.

    I guess we could also think about a mid-week ADV Christmas drink up at One Tree Hill??:freaky

    Edit:
    Graham, fill out your profile.
    It will help us work out who is the easiest for you to hook up with.

    Thinking of doing a ride down at the beach at Goolwa in coming weeks.

    Need to get in some practice on soft sand with the Big Girl.

    Will post a date on case anyone's interested. Could finish off with a ride down the Fleurieu or back of Meadows.

    Would like to see that, worst part is getting from the carpark to the beach through the dunes, after that you should be fine.
