Hooters - It really comes down to numbers and how much you want them to do. COVID hit hard and they were looking for some more exposure as most of their business came from interstate and overseas. They have been splatted across the PAR site plenty of times now so hopefully they will get something out of it.

We provided sweep and support vehicle ($5.00 a rider extra). They put up the lead, had two other bikes in the group to keep things moving and a support truck who carried everyone's camping gear to the camp site. They also put on pre dinner nibbles, dinner and breakfast and camp site fees at $150.00 per head. They supplied the big eskies and ice and you put your own beer in it. They carried firewood for the camp fire.

They are now looking at running a more enduro style ride with limits to the size of the bikes early next season. There really want much in it for them on this ride but they are happy to negotiate a tour based on numbers and what you want them to provide.

PAR hooked up with DACA tours last weekend for an "Adventure" ride. The skinny bikes enjoyed it and the larger ones found it a bit of a challenge. Batesy will learn what big bike friendly means. These guys run a good setup and know the south pretty well and can certainly put on a ride that will challenge the best of you. Great support truck, catering etc. If you wanted to have a weekend away with all the logistics dealt with by someone else I would recommend these guys. They also have 8 ( + lead and sweep bike ) nice new 500 EXC's you can hire if needed.

I'm just putting it out there to let you know after the good weekend had by all.

I reckon you need to get Acid Gloves to the CQ Xmas drinks. 76 appearances over many years without one whinge or judgemental comment. He embraces the true meaning of CQ hood and deserves acknowledgment and an award.

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
Cheers

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
