    2,900 km’s in 3 days, lots of sticky mud through the gorges around the Northern Flinders after the rains up north. The Pig handled herself quite well.

    Wow taz great collection I am envious, have had a T140 and a T160 in my time, not much that could keep up with a well ridden Trident in the hills. Also had an 850 commando and I remember off the line that thing was quick, blasted away from a few superbikes at the lights and gave them a scare lol.
