The Border Run has been going for 32 years and is on the first Saturday of August. It is not organised as such but everyone who’s game turns up has a meal and a drink and heads back East or West or in some cases North to the Off Center Rally next weekend.
Who's game for a longish ride in the middle of winter?? mmmmmmmmmmmm
It'd be a good ride. Will have a look closer to the time - starting a new job between now and then.
On a side note, is it just me that thinks that riding a few thousand k's for the purpose of bragging about riding long distances is a bit poncy? just my take on the farriders.....
Each to their own I reckon.
I've meet one or two of the farrider members on my travels, casual talk about where your've come from and where your going sort of thing. These guys were riding jappers and I never get into talking about bikes with these guys as they always end up trying to better what ever I,ve done. They seem to be happy with their accomplishments but is not thing.
I guess it would be ok if your were headed in that direction in the first place, to ride those distances for a patch I'll leave for others.
Is this our equal to the ironarse over in the states.
Well I have an iron ass now !!!!!
I am in on this, will fill 4 days of riding so that can't be a bad thing.
Haven't been out that way since summer of '92.
The only Harley Davidson at this years border run
A few of the particpants at Border Village
This is what it was all about
Stopped in at the Super pit at Kal on the way home.
Sure is, August 5th
Thanks lofty, may have to see if I can make it
Only so much of the Nullarbor one can handle in a century Stropp, but sounds a challenge ?
Yeh but what the hell, a few yrs ago I did Perth to Mandurah pass on a shovelhead, well it was 1982 but the bike will make up for age yes ??
Not a lot has changed at the Madura Pass roadhouse since 82' , fuel prices gone up and the potholes in the driveway are bigger and deeper.
Yeh mate if I'm driving I avoid it like the plague but the bike is different, car I try to get to Eucla in one day, not so easy on the bike ??
Are you riding?
Yes mate taking the streetglide
Be safe mate, you still need that crate and trailer??
