I have emailed the gpx for saturdays ride to the 3 people coming, this is so people can hang back if they like and suck some clean air with out the risk of getting lost.
Banksia grove to Bullsbrook to Mogumber to OVT, 306klms of easy stuff.. Can get fuel at Gin Gin around the 230klms if required. A few new bits that I have not been on so a good chance of getting lost at some point. But hopefully will have a beer in hand at the OVT by 1:00.

No Problem, Saturday 8:00 start meet at Hungry Jacks at Banksia Grove so we can bypass the normal Nuclear waste zone entrance. Might give Jennacubine the flick and do something else.

Ok Tommy I have 2 ideas both around 250klm of easy stuff.

Sunday start at Banksia grove and ride to Jennacubine and back. Its only open for lunch on Sunday.
Or Saturday start at the Rock Inne and ride to Brookton for lunch and back

I am easy so let me know.

Jnr - I place no blame with you. You were under pressure from an immature individual acting like a 10 year old. I am sure you could return and ride sensibly but I am not sure he could.

I didn't realize you guys had those fitted. I wasn't looking at them when I saw your bikes but did note that your bikes looked great. I have now ordered one (Free freight for Feb). I have also ordered a nice YZ front guard in the same colour to set the front end off. hopefully the new tank turns up tomorrow and most other stuff will be transferred across from the old bike.

Guys

Looking to drop a screen/tower on the mighty new DRZ!!! (OK - don't can the bike). I have had a pretty good look and have come up with this -

http://www.britanniacomposites.com/lynx-r-dual-sport-fairing-suzuki-drz-400-ssme/

I am wanting something that looks half decent, I can hide behind, can mount shit behind and mount the GPS up higher so I can see it.

Anyone go another solution that doesn't cost $750 before I add a few bits and pieces.

That has a dent in it anyway Jnr, steer clear. But it would be handy for the longer trips.

Ok peoples go easy as Iím no computer nerd but itís that time to look into the GPS side of things for the big bike so I can lead more often to take some slack of the regulars, I have the Garmin mount & I was thinking Montana as it has the bigger screen but I c there r a few different models etc, do they all fit in the same mount etc & is this a wise choice & if so witch wud b easy to use/ share rides etc, message me personally to keep the site from build up of comments, cheers

Ps donít panic & stress with people thinking oh no a GPS & all that etc I want it for long rides on big bikes as u can end up anywhere with big kms.
