    Last time I let my bike rego run out for a while the nice people down at the rego dept. sent me a letter saying if you're not going to register your bike we want our number plates back, I guess this is their way of getting you to rego your vehicle wether you're using it or not, it worked, nice scam hey, gotta love that crafty gubberment. :cry

    I've got one of mine on seasonal rego. Bike has to be registered for a minimum of 3 months per year. Organised over the phone with transport SA.

    Hi everyone,

    Just moved back to Adelaide and looking for people to go riding with, keen any day of the week, looking for offroad riding, enduro type stuff, although used to live in Adelaide 10 years ago I don't really know where the tracks/trails are etc, so happy to tag along on a ride if someone is going learn the spots. Hopefully picking up a bike this week, KTM 450.

    And if anyone is interested in a adventure riding story see my blog below.

    Cheers guys and can't wait to get out there!

    Welcome (back?) to Adelaide.
    What a ride! Just had a quick look at the blog. That is some serious adventure. Well done!

    I couldn't help but notice your mention of the Simpson Desert. I guess it is kind of sacrelidge to mention 4 wheelers on this site but what the hell.
    I drove one of two support vehicles for three riders across the Simpson in mid October and it was a tough gig because I had picked up my new Tenere 660 just weeks before our departure. I was itching to ride but as it turned out, the extra support vehicle was a handy thing. We had one bike on board (KTM 990) following a hard 'off' (broken collar bone and 6 ribs) and the 40 plus daytime temps took a toll on the last two riders. Left two perfectly good BMW650's on the side of the track at the 'Mincer'. (20 km west of Poeppels corner) Went on to Birdsville and dropped off unnecessary people and gear and went straight back out to recover the Beemers.
    All good in the end but ever since, I have been itching to do the ride myself sometime. The desert is now closed over summer until mid March? I think but would like to catch up with like minded people for a ride West to East (or East to West) in 2013.
    I am new to Adventure Riding but have had a series of dirt bikes and a lone road machine (TDM 900) in the past. I am quite familiar with the Simpson Desert but have never ridden a bike right across. Bit of cattle mustering on the western side at Adria Downs Station and numerous 4x4 trips across. If you or anyone else on the SA ADV site is interested, give me a shout.
    I would also like to catch up with anyone doing some local rides, to tag along and get to know anyone interested in a Simpson Desert ride in 2013 when the desert opens for traffic again.

    Cheers

    Oh yeah will be going to KI in Febuary if anyone is interested, is about $160 return for the ferry one person and bike, temperatures should be about 10 degrees less over there than here so good summer trip, one, two or maybe even three nights depending on what time people can get off. :evil

    The entertainment book has a 25% off voucher for travel to KI. Used it myself in Sept. I thought that the terrain and options would be great over there for a few days...

    G'Day Bubba,

    Going to be difficult to do before Xmas - just about working 7 days a week at the moment, but should be good shortly after.

    As for the lifting permit, OzJuJu will testify that I've got lifting the big girl down pat! :gdog(Yes, it was in thick sand, and 'Yes', that's why I want to get some more sand time in!!)
