    Hi there! I'm going to sell my TA650. Is there a chance to sell it with the custom fairing or I have to fit the original one back?

    Hi everyone.

    I just heard a rumour that Damien from the now closed Japanese Motorcycle Wreckers moved all his stock to a farm on Angle Vale road. Anyone know if this is true and if he is selling from there? If so how can I/we contact him?

    Last I spoke to him a few years ago, he said he had a car wash in Mount Barker and the dismantlers shop what she was trying to sell at the time.

    How many car washes in Mount Barker?

    You may be able to do a quick Google and find him there.

    I bought a motor from him last xmas and had a discussion with him and he has a child that needs a bit of close parent support. His property is out that way.
    Hope all is good with him and his family.

    Hi Flodder

    Yeh I got to know him over the years and knew about his son (Alexander, I think). It's a pity he closed because he always looked after me with prices etc. Even bought a couple of bikes off of him. I could use his services right now.

    Don't ya love it when you go to the local tire outlet for a specific tire and they tell you they have none in stock and there's none in Australia and if they can't get them in no one can , lmao , a Google search and one phone call , tire arrives 36 hours later from Interstate... Typically Adelaide for service, Rob in sunshine coast was very helpful IMG_20170908_144547.jpg

    Hi guys new to adv rider.

    Hope you're all doing well. I have a 09 ct 110 postie with white walls and a 97 low ks ttr 250 which im trying to turn into an adv bike, just need a long range tank and a Giant loop coyote for my camping gear. Not new to dirt bikes or camping, new to having a bike licence and combining two of my hobbies.

    Will be keen to do some rides if anyone else likes going on dual sport missions

    I am chasing a ttr 250 long range tank 20l or an acerbis 1601w 20l xr 250 400 650l tank. If you have either of these hit me up with a PM.

    Cheers

    Hello threshold and welcome. There is no specific SA Rides thread, most people post in the SA forum here when there is a public ride, so keep your eye out.

    Go the Postie! :ricky

    There is a ride section in DBW that you might want to keep an eye on, otherwise I do most of my riding in the NE

    DSMRA are having national AGM at Murrayville on 14/15 October with rides in the deserts. A couple of us are heading on to Emmersville NSW for the Tony Kirby memorial ride, that is on the following weekend. TTR would be better than a posty for that ride, Approximately 140 km range and fuel can in backup ute.

    I rode up to Brisbane for my younger brothers 60th a few years back, was a good excuse for a ride along the Darling and to head on to Fraser Island.

    Went for a ride and a night camping at Gulnare on the weekend. Found some muddy roads on the way.

    G'day everyone.

    I just find out "Bondy" who used to own the Rhynie Hotel died a couple of days ago.

    For those of you who didn't know him, he used to host a pub run every year for around 20 years and was one of the best pub runs/rallies in South Oz.

    His funeral service will be held tomorrow 15/9/17 at the Riverton Football Clubrooms at 10.00 am.
