I am going to give the bmer a run on the par ride. It's like riding a lounger down the road haha, I have never ridden a more comfortable bike. Its more of a soft-roader than a dirt bike but I am loving it.

Cheers boys for another great JB500
My new 500 is well and truly run in now. As XrCass said conditions on the ride where perfect. Day 1 you couldn't get any better and on Day 2 in the afternoon a couple of sections had dried out a bit but compared to the last couple we have done no where near as bad. Day 2 it was three up heading back on the bikes as xradam,s back was playing up and would have given him to much grief to ride back. Cass thought he would match my effort on day 1 and scored himself 2 rear flats. Luckily the boys had brought plenty of spare tubes and co2 canisters. The beach was pretty soft this year and didn't make much difference running up high or down low but at least this year we could get all the way through and not have any cliff sections to deal with. It amazes me how much rubbish is washed up from the boats,so much rope and floats and plastic
Both Inver and XRCass did a great job of leading and we couldn't have done this trip without the help from Xradam partner Helen who drove up the support car carrying our much needed spare tubes:)
XRCass sourced out great accommodation for the Friday night and it was just around the corner from the pub which was a bonus
So again thanks for another great JB 500. I'll be back again next year and maybe we might get a few more takers

If anyone else wants to join in the PAR Capel ride this Saturday there is still time to make it happen. You do need to join the Ironstone Club and pay $30.00.

We are going down on Friday, dinner at the Capel pub Friday night. Riding Saturday with a pub lunch. Staying Saturday night with a BBQ if you get $10.00 to Peter so he can cater. Details are all on PAR or I am sure Bunga or Darin can help you out.

Darin,You have weakened like me and bought one.
Join us on the Holland track.
I am an adventure ride virgin, but virgins don't stay virgins for long.

The only scary part about the whole ride is tents (I don't do tents ).The magic pop up one is brilliant, but is too big.
So I practised putting up the standard one today.
If there was an alternative I would have burnt it....
This should be fun.

Thanks Jack, one of my mates who still works for BMW says he services many of these and some with 150000 on the clock motors still unopened. Rotax build a good engine. Plus I got it at a very good price. Very happy.

In breaking news!!!

The world is invaded by Aliens and Darin buys an ADV bike.

BMW 650 Dakar

It's an oldie but a bit of a fix-up-er-a

I have always been a closet B-mer fan, having worked for BMW motorcycles in West London. (in my youth)

Looking forward to the travels.
