    How's the weather also, hope it's not going to be a problem too, the first camping trip is the most important as it can put people off if it's a bad experience.

    Hope all is well.

    Perfect start to a camping trip - you packed the tools, hellinox, AND the coffee!

    Fuel cap wouldn't unlock. Took about 5 minutes of hitting it to get it open. Then pulled it apart and took the locking mechanism out.

    Now having an orange coffee and traveling along fine.

    G'day Redback

    The weather is spot on. I have winter gloves and a balaclava.

    I'm too forgetful and stupid to be put off doing it again and again.

    3rd day and finally on the dirt after 2 bay dirt free days.

    I can carry a full slab though. 12 in the cooler bag and 12 on top. Also the tank is a perfect table to put a can.

    I don't think I could ask for anything more.

    Got to love getting out and about on the bikes and camping when it suits you.
    Enjoy the trip. Bloody cracking tome of year to go inland a bit. Good on you and I wish I was there.

    Great bike and nice photos. Enjoy.


    I wish my own original model XT600 Tenere had never been stolen. It's the only bike I ever sold, then bought back. The day I bought it back it was stolen from outside work. :cry

    I never realised you could have such a cunt of a time riding a motorcycle.

    I had to sit here in the shade and have a few beers to realise it was was worth it 20180604_161509-1008x756.jpg
