For those not using the FB page, Inver rounding the first corner on Lake Perkolilli chasing down the bloke that has been in his way for the last 20 minutes.

I added a couple of stills to the report too.

Anyone interested in a very mild adventure ride from Lakes BP to Yarra Road then down to Metro Road and over to Williams Road and across to Dwellingup for lunch. The return ride can be anyway you want to get back home. I can only ride the forrest roads because of my knee recon so it will be boring with no single tracks. I was thinking Sunday as itís cooler weather.

Well done Inver and JerseyBoy on finishing this yearís KDR Competing in these types of events arenít for everyone with the different types of terrain you have to ride and dealing with the dust and other competitors, all done at high speeds, so finishing and an event and coming back in one piece is a big accomplishment
So well done again guys and good to see Pounce and Jack turning up to get themselves a ride point 😁
Hopefully we can get a few Crusties next year to give it ago

PAR are having a Xmas gathering on the 12 December at Whitegum Farm just east of York. There will be an easy adventure ride out there from Mundaring or tho many will choose to take their cars and set up camp in the caravan park.
Dinner is a "big" roast with desert and breakfast is bacon and egg rolls and coffee at a cost of $52.50. They have a ripper beer garden and a decent bar as well as a swimming dam. Individual campers on the bike are $10.00 a head or you can book a campsite for a camper or van at a slightly higher rate. We have nearly 50 going at this point but we are still a long way out so I reckon we will get into the 60s +

More details on the PAR page in the events section or contact me for more info. Everyone is welcome (Except Hooters and Jnr.

Kalgoorlie Desert Race 2020
Jersey boy, Inver, Ponce and Jack
I didnít post any thing up prior to this year KDR with cov19 and a couple of people getting injuries it was all up in the air if I was going to make it at all.
It all kick off with scroiterning and street party in Kalgoorlie Thursday night. This year they had Josh Sheehan and a couple of other WA boys putting on a freestyle show , they definitely make doing back flips look easy.
Friday it was out to the track start and finish area for prolog this weíre we were camping for the weekend with hot showers and takeaway food vans it didnít fill like we were ruffing it at all.
The prolog went well with no issues
Jersey boy prolog well at 25
And I prolog at 61
The cars had a top ten shot out under light in front of a crowed bar area followed by a live band
Saturday was race day one with 2 separate laps of the 125 kms course
Jersey boy was doing well but had a good stack on the second lap but managed to dig deep complete the the dayís racing.
They had the AFL footy on the big screen in font of the bar area then it was followed by the live band once again.
Sunday morning Pounce and Jack drop in to say Gíday they had been staying at the broard arrow tavern after completing the holland track they then went out to lake Pebkolilli to veiw some of the action.
Sunday was another good day of racing.
With only one lap of the course.
Overall it was great event and itís always a good filling finishing in one peice.
Sunday night it was back into Kalgoorlie for presentation which was followed buy a live band yes it was the same band all weekend but they did a great job.
Jersey Boy finished 30th overall and 10th in E3 class
Which is excellent effort for heís frist desert race.
I finished 58th overall out of 125 starters and 13th in Veteranís
Big thanks to Jersey boys mate Mark for doing our fuel stops at the half way point
Very efficient and fast.
Itís a great event and the KDR committee are working hard to make it bigger and better every year.
Hope to see u there next year
Cheers Inver

Thanks Dave for a good weekend, lots of variety, no dramas (apart from 2T fuel range ;-)
Nice to meet the Barista Bros too, a couple more to challenge Hooters.
Tommy, Hooters, Griffo, Jack, thanks for the laughs as well.

I'll admit it now, but the dunes were a bit of fun, but only because I didn't get bogged or bucked & I made that one steep bit first try.

Looks like summer is here, the difference 2 weeks makes in the same area.

Pemby day 2
Same players as day one no surprises

Boots on 7:30 was the call Saturday night. So we all bailed out from the pub early, too far to drive to blow Sunday by being hungover. So up early, but not 4am thank fuck. Pack up check out and a 7 oíclock eggs at the pub. The boys drove to Manji for fuel as the info we had suggested the servo was closed Sunday, it opened as they were returning from Manji , oh well. The plan was to head out to the yeagarup dune system an return thru the bush. So a bit bitchy and dirt road, followed by sandy national park 4wd track to the biggest inland dune system in WA, bloody huge! See the pics and videos, we rode across em for I think about 8km, a couple of dunes were skirted but most conquered, even the anti sanders Pounce and myself made it, there was winging tho . They were amazing tho and it was awesome to ride thru, breathtaking scenes everywhere. So the dunes finished and we found a bush track that lead back round to pemby, more overgrown trails with bogs and logs to make it interesting. The track terminated onto a dirt road, and Jack had a track mapped so the lead changed and Dave had a chance to take a break from leading and jack who was sweeping now lead and Pounce went back to sweeping. Oh yeah the mystery blown engine smoke on Pounces 450 Just dissolved and she ran like a charm, so who knows what went on there. The track Jack took us on was a cool windy 4wd track better than dirt road and a few laughs, Dave was making the 2t ring ding as he made the most of his brake from leading. Back earlier than expected, we were back in pemby by 10am- perfect! So a great finish to the weekend, no bike probs, no injuries, just plenty of laughs, beers and banter. It was cool to finish early and I was rolling outta Pemby by 10:30, a quick stop at WA Marron and home by 2:30. Thanks all particularly Dave for organising the weekend, awesome stuff from the new guy! Many rides to come I reckon. Cheers to the sweeps and of course everyone for the banter. Itís getting dusty so Iíll be out and about a bit less, I will run some extreme rides, dust isnít really a drama when youíre busting creeks an hills in first an second gear
Catch yíall Hooters

Cheers Dave for Leading us on some epic trails. Jack, Pounce, and Tommy for sweeping. I know Hooters really wanted to sweep on Sunday 🤣 Sweet ride report Hooters 👍

Thanks CQs for getting involved, its always good riding through this region lots of variety of tracks, mud, swamps, water crossings, hill climbs etc, from the trees to the seas !! Great bunch of riders that kept a close pace for the group over the 280kms. No breakdowns or major get offs, so we were able to complete the ride route that was planned. Thanks to Pounce, Tommy, Jack for sweeping, Griffo for bringing his WR450 super tanker that enabled me to run the 2 smoker on minimum fuel supply knowing he was carrying back up fuel for the rest of us, and Hooters for the entertainment, especially attempting to cross the Warren River at and the river mouth, video evidence to follow !! Great ride report for Saturday Hooters, look forward to the next ride.

Thanks Dave for a great weekend of riding that ticked three things off my bucket list;
1. Callcup hill
2. Warren river mouth
3. Yeagurap dunes
In between plenty of logs, stinky bogs, creeks, rivers, single trails, twin tracks, sand and dust. Oh and not to mention spectacular scenery that only the SouthWest can offer.

Absolutely worth the drive to Pemby for 280km of magnificent weekend riding.

Pemby weekend part one: sat
Players Dave(Hoofarted), Jack, Hooters, Reagan, Callum, Brett, Pounce, Tommy
Dave called it, and we came! Great call from a new member of the crew. A few were smart and went down fri arvo and a few had the alarm buzzing at 4am sat morning, including me and Tommy who wasn't feeling to good on Friday and was going to bail but I talked him in to coming down with me. The boots on time was 8:30, and it was over the road from pemby pub we meet Reagan and Callum, a couple of young blokes, friends of Dave. Introís over and straight to it a bit of bitchy an dirt road and into the bush. Dave leading and Pounce sweeping. Great trails and single fairly open in places and tight an overgrown in others a good mix. The young guys were fast , but started off polite and respectful, but were shown the error of their ways quick smart! The bullshit and banter was flowing nicely, everyone left their feelings at home, and no one was safe, but I was getting it from all directions . There was a couple of decent creek crosssings and see the pics for the log choked one I pushed my bike over, my penis immediately shrinking to the abuse general consensus that my man card should be revoked , Tommy and Pounce nailed it! Lunch at the Northcliffe pub, couple of pints plenty of bullshit and some good tucker. We headed off to Calcutt dunes And to the mouth of the warren river Pounce already had enough sand in his gina so waited at the top.... maybe I should have too......! See the video Reagan had to rescue me from being washed to South Africa, again much to everyoneís amusement, more abuse for Hooters! We didnít have any trouble getting back up the dune but it was bloody soft, an big.... and sandy did I mention sandy! More forest trails an blasting 4wd tracks. A brief stop for fuel redistribution for the 2T bikes all running on fumes, as was Dave after his siphoning efforts. Young guys bolted and left the old boy with the dirty work! Back at the pub about 4, few beers outside in our gear stinking of sweat and some of us sea water! Didnít matter how many beers I had couldnít was the sand outta my arse crack! Dave an I were at the pub, the rest of the crew spread thru town, caravan park, motels etc. showered, changed and more beers food, footy and lies about how crap Hooters was! We all bailed early keen for an early Sunday ride.
