    Both. the best I have eva seen. Search Rigid industries on Google, 6" lightbar 3100 lumens. $315.

    Not mine, it was given to my by a friend to take on the ride. I mounted just under the stock headlight of the KLX. rubber mounted to the gaurd, the KLX has a pretty stiff gaurd.. I might keep going past the corner and try and find Crutchy and Boris down the Strez now I can see whats in front of me.

    Hi Guys,
    I hope to see you all out there. I am leaving from Blaxland NSW on a KTM450. Room has been booked, bike nearly all prepped and ready for launch. It is the first time that I am attempting this ride and I am really looking forward to it.
    I am not going the traditional way from here and hope to take in more dirt. It will be around 1300km for me. I hope to meet you guys there.

    Cheers,
    The Left One :freaky

    So how do you keep an eye on how these mad dudes are going for the day? And how many are involved?
    Do we get an "honour" list posted? :rofl Is there a mag that takes pics and posts a story on it?

    Thats right, I didn't make it last year, but it was a hell of a lot of fun, funny day, lots of laughs, Have a read of lasts years thread. 2011. On the day this thread will be running hot and those who put their SPOT page up, you will be able to follow.

    For me the bike prep and different mods tinkering in the shed months before is half the fun. The serious guys that will be leading the charge are bike fit, crack pot riders. If your not a good rider it would be foolish to try and keep up with these guys without hurting yourself. Better to go your own pace and set your own record not someone elses.

    But it doesn't mean that a nobody like me cant go on this ride and get all hyped up in the emotion of the day and go and have a bloody good old fang.
