    That would be great. I'd appreciate the opportunity. Although, I have about 10 years worth of experience I have had a twenty year gap, kids, house, dog, job etc. But times right so I'm keen as mustard.:D

    That would be excellent. I have done about 2500km over the last couple of months by myself. Got lost on Mt Lloyd, fell off at Ben Lomond and scared the crap out of myself at Griffin ParK, so appreciate the opportunity to tag along:thumb The video is handy as well as I have to do my 'P's in two weeks because I let my bike licence laps. Ill keep an eye for your post. Thanks again.

    Cheers Des

    Always good to have new riders come along,
    There is nothing more dangerous than riding on your own in the bush, especially if you have an accident with no way of communicating with the outside world. :eek1

    I carry a spot and ride by myself a lot due to the nature of my work. I dont see it as dangerous but ride accordingly.

    I'll post when the next ride is coming along, just working on some time off in June and heading south again. Exploring the many tracks in the Styx & Florentine Valleys. Might possibly get some snow to make things interesting. :lol3

    The new Pirelli Scorpion Knobbies will soon be here to suit big bore Adventure Bikes. I've already ordered a couple of sets for myself. Don't worry about the Yamies in the clip just watch how the tyres handle different terrain, they look good and speed rated to 160 kms. :ricky

    Look good. I am riding with the original tyres on the DR650 and they certainly make things interesting, especially on wet dirt roads.:eek1

    Spot = piece of mind. Riding by yourself can be very rewarding. I suppose i dont need 2 people to pick up the dr though :lol3

    Bourbon, Goonbag Wine & Sambucca does weigh a fair bit. That's why I drink Dalberg to save weight.:freaky:freaky
