    Got a PM tonight from Safari Berg saying wouldnt it be a good idea to start this thread. Now I dont know why he didnt do it himself but lets not let shyness get in the way of a good idea. Besides this forum has been getting a little boring of late and could do with some nice pictures to brighten it up a bit.

    So who is going to post the first pic c'mon safari berg we know you want to show it off.

    While we are waiting heres one from the past thanks to GT:

    I'm old enough to know that the Oz safari used to be called the Wynns safari and recall the dominance of the early XR600s.

    Being only 15 at the time I recall when steve chapman built a USD forked XR600 with a monster tank.

    The chapmans were great riders.

    So if there are any ealry XR600 photos that would be cool!

    Of all the photos I took, these series, in 1999, near Humbert River in the NT, are my all time favourite, my only regret is I forgot to give them to Bob to put in his book.

    This one is of Andy Hayden in 1997, at the prologue in Cairns.

    My daughter was one of the official photographers for that event, and this picture is a photo taken of the 12" X 14" print she did for me (hence poor quality), and is hanging in my office.

    I seem to remember having a 10 X 8 print of it also. If anybody wants it, I may be able to find it, however it may be forever gone.
