    Well getting close now and it's freezing here in Perth and possible storms clearing, should be an interesting ride.

     Be safe mate, you still need that crate and trailer??

     Yes please lofty, I hope to arrive in Adelaide Monday arvo, pm your mob no please as I lost number when I did the phone swap. Cheers Stropp

    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

     

    Realizing this is a very old post, but got interested due the the recent posts - the url returns a 404 (error) so not sure when and what this ride is all about

    Anyone able to fill me in - it might be to late but perhaps next year :) like the idea crossing nulla from WA (but would be great if I got some company along the ride)

    Stropp. Why don't you let us know when you'll be in Adelaide and maybe a few of the SA crew can meet for a beer or meal. Cheers

    Well big change of plans, made the border run but I'm heading back to Perth as I had made an offer on a house and I didn't expect it go through but when I asked to withdraw my offer due to the high price the vendor came back with they accepted and I need to get that sorted so the bike will sit in Adelaide for a few more months now ??

    Nice effort Stropp. Many people turn up at the border?

    Probably just as well you went back, some wild storms here in Adelaide Sat and Sun. Wet weather doesn't put me off from riding, but the wind we had!

    Numbers were way down, they had about 20 pull out due to the wild weather over east but around 50 turned up, one guy did 4100 k's each way in 2 days either side, now that's serious riding.
