?

The Tigers leave Melbourne on the 8th of Nov will they make it all the way round

  1. Yes they will blitz it in and look good doing it

  2. The tigers will make it but only just (assuming they can find enough lattes)

  3. Nah they wont make the border

  4. They aren't a "insert favorite bike" here so there is no way they can make it

  5. Who cares just show me photos of the carnage

    Well it turns out counting isn't Bob or Phils strong point, They purchased a chain that's just a wee bit to short so there going to do the run on the old chain and hope for the best.
    Funny enough it's only Phils bike that needs a chain.

    Maybe we could lay bets on how many k's they'll get into the ride before the chain snaps.

    Just got a call from Phil and there getting paranoid about the chain.

    Does anyone in Port headland or karatha have a 525 chain they could buy or maybe a few links to add to the short one they bought.
    They have a 120 link chain but it was a couple of links too short.

    An old dude once told me a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

    Perhaps the hobbit needs to take his elixir to calm down

    Are they coasting it or in-landing it? There are a few termite mounds with hard hats on them in one section that we noticed on our way thru. Some have been dressed up. :huh It must be a West Australian thing? :lol3
