Dare I say it. . A DR650.
Leap frog, must be our turn @UncleGra
Where zigackerly is the "bong"?
And when? Bit fresh beside the water for the next month or two
Woops, I think you typed that out loud
PS you're not old enough
On Billabong Ck. at Wanganella..terrific big camping ground..no dunnies tho'..scoot over to the C.P. on the other side of the creek...beer and food at the post office. Black soil to get there from Conargo...so gotta be dry. A bit later on when the weather warms a little and Tripod is back...Trokel wil have his new purchase by then..
After much indecision I now have a DR and spent today in the shed working on it to get it running better and although I still need to do some jetting work to get the most out of it, after a short ride this afternoon I am much happier with it's performance. Looks like I might have to go for a ride tomorrow.
Somehow the answer always end up being DR650SE, or HE650RS, or HI790S. There is no end to it now Troy!
Do they have 2 spark plugs..?
You should know that better than me as I have only just bought mine but yes It does appear that way.
I have really enjoyed my DRz over the last 4 years and seeing as i already had the safari tank and racks on it I decided to make some other improvements and set it up for some longer distance work instead of getting the 650. So last weekend i made a touring screen and bought a new rear sprocket to gear it up for the road and was planning the get the seat concepts seat for it and also figured that I better give it a good service in preparation for some longer rides but that is when my plans changed. It had been around 6000k's since i last checked the valve clearances on the Zed and unfortunately it appears that in that time one of the intake valves has started to fail so I have had to park it until I can get around to a top end rebuild or I may even part it. So then it was a tossup whether to buy another Zed or the 650 and this bike was available so i decided to give it a try.
Dual ignition, just like a Cessna
I havent seen either engine up close so Dunno..
50 000kms on the original spark plugs?
Pack Bill a bong, they are all over the place wherever standing water gets cut off from the riverflow. Mostly on flatter country

Yes..58443 km...would I need to change both..?..or could I just swap sides..?
I finally got reconnected! It was a drama. The bridge is built. Having a rest day near the Germany border in a cabin on a farm near Asenray. Trip has been great. It tried to rain one day in England but failed. I booked covered seats at Assen in case of rain. The cover meant we only got sunburnt on Saturday. Campers are great for travel but, we wouldn't bother with an internal shower next time, didn't use it at all. Only used the lol for no. 1s. Now getting about in Renault Captur. Should be nearly used to driving here by the time we drop it off. We went to sidecarcross yesterday, that was good. Proved Holland does have a hill. That's sufficient for now. I don't like using the phone for this as it is sensitive and just another thing to get used to. So cheers and see us.
Just planning a trip for later in the year was wondering if anyone knows if the pub at Beckom (near Ardlethen) is still open and if so does it have accommodation?
Their facebook page is pretty active.
Maybe give them a call : (02) 6978 2313
Let me know when your passing through. I'm only an hour away.
Thanks for that. Still a couple of months away and have to get a consensus at least half dozen of us, and then start booking rooms. It will be like herding cats!!
London pub in Ardlethan is cheap and basic,good feed,Mirrool pub magnificent,good feed dont know about accomm, and when I stay at Ardlethan I go up to the Beckom roadhouse for a early morning coffee as nothing is open in Ard!l
Also camped in the showground at Ardlethan!
We stayed at the London last time we did this trip and it was great. Just looking for alternatives in the area just in case. numbers of riders may also rule where we stay. Got up to about 8 last time through. Forgot about Mirrool I will have a look.
Finished the jetting changes and other carby modifications on the DR this morning and also did the valve clearances and balanced the front wheel so this afternoon I just had to take it for a spin to see what it was like. Did a little 120k loop that included twisty bitumen and flowing gravel roads as well as a few fire trails and apart from the poor handling of the E09's on greasy clay tracks I was really impressed with the bike itself and in particular the greatly improved low to mid range throttle response and overall smoothness of the acceleration right the way through the rev range. Now I just need to do something about the seat and it will be already for the next adventure.
