    Good work Jumma, I like your choice in bikes mate.:D

    I got the 18 litre tank & 'comfort' seat last week for my 625, looks good on the bike & isint anywhere near as bulky as I thought it would be.

    I rode some local single tracks last Sunday with about a 3/4 tank full of fuel & it didnt feel any different in handling to riding the same tracks when the small tank was fitted.

    The new seat is very comfortable compared to the standard SXC seat, which is going to be very much appreciated on those longer rides.

    Cheers, Sol..

    Sounds good Wayne, maybe we should do this before the big ride in Sept. as another trial run (which I think I need) ?
    Would be good to go up there with a group in winter, nominal dust, big camp fire & warming drinks (good red-wine, bourbon, scotch etc..).

    So where? :ear ................................options

    1.Sunset Country?

    No 2. Peterborough?

    "Doc" who runs the Peterborough caravan pk offered to show us his local tracks if we are interested some time

    Other options?

    Cheers

    That sounds great masterbrewer but that date is no good for me as I will be racing up at the Hattah desert race,maybe you guys can come up there and watch some racing and camp would be a good overnighter.

    A bit better idea of track location for you:

    The Hattah race is not actually at Hattah- is closer to Colignan (Boononar Rd).

    Plenty of camping options around that way even if you dont want to camp at the track.

    Thanks for the tip :ear

    You seem to have local knowledge......anyone else can give their "two bobs" worth too.

    How far along Boonoora Rd from the Calder Hwy is the track & what facilities are usually there? ie food, bar etc

    How tough are the following roads/tracks to ride on a "tent/gear laden (for only one night) bike"?; :ear

    Getting there;
    Settlement Rd
    Meridian Rd
    Castles Crossing Rd

    Return;
    Nowingi Line Track
    Underbool Track
    Pheney's Track
    Meribah Rd

    Thanks :bow

    Cheers

    Masterbrewer, I'd say that 'notsoBlase' does have a lot of 'local knowledge'of those areas.

    The ride sounds good I'd be keen to ride along too, hope to have my new panniers by then.

    Cheers, Sol..
