    Yeah, flasher, but not as capable off road, but still pretty good. Killer on the road though.

    So after a leisurely ride over Barrington to Gloucester only disrupted by a big mob of bastard cyclists, we headed into Krambach for a beer, then on to Long Flat, then finally to Walcha where we've pulled up for the night. Another beautiful day tomorrow.

    Glad to hear that.
    I remember back in the mid '90s heading to Kal to maybe look for work in the mines, drove into town within an hour I knew that it wasn't my kind of town the next day kept driving and after a few weeks I ended up getting work in Paraburdoo and then Tom Price followed by Newman where I met the towns Occupational Therapist, she's still hanging around :hmmmmm:crash

    I suspect Dave might be referring to my no longer being a resident of Kalgoorlie? :hmmmmm:scratch
