Blog: May 1. KTM 1090 and 1290

Yo everyone. It’s Sunday midday and I’ve had a good week. I’ve been riding the 2017 KTM 1090 Adventure R and 1290 Super Adventure R, and as you can see, I had my new selfie-stick with me. I did bang off a few pics and some video on the phone but it’s being a pest and I’m having trouble moving the images across to the computer. I have a couple, but not the whole lot….

Blog: April 24. Been out to Bourke

It’s Sunday arvo, and I managed a quick, trouble-free run out to Bourke on Wednesday and back on Thursday this past week. Naturally it was for work, and while I’m unbelievably pressured at the moment, it needed to be done, and it needed to be done in a rush.

Blog: April 10. Practicing for retirement

It’s Sunday arvo and I’ve been out on the Dominator. Hooray. I’m pretty sure I explained what’s happening with the bike. Parts are becoming scarce, so I’ve taken the bike off active duty. No more runs out to Cameron Corner, no more being chucked into the rocks at Port Macquarie, and probably no more muddy, tough rides with deep-water crossings and clutch-destroying sand and hills. It’s done all those things in its time with me,…

Blog: April 3. Touratech Adventure Challenge

I’m a bit late, but it’s still Monday, so technically I’m on time…sort of. It’s early Monday arvo and I’m just back from Bright in Victoria where I ran the KLR through the Touratech Adventure Challenge. It was a great event, and because Danny Wilkinson was on board as photographer I didn’t shoot any images of the event…so I don’t have any to post here. I did arrive a day early with workmate Mitch Newell…
