Journey Home

Hi All,

I acquired an XRR in Melbourne from a friend and instead of shipping it the 1300km home to Newcastle i decided to ride it over 3 days. Shocked

I would do the first leg into the VIC high country alone after spending the previous day going over the bike. I needed to fit an Acerbis long range tank, and rebuild the most gummed up carby I've ever seen.
Plus build a makeshift rack for my gear. Luckily this bike has a rear subframe which the american ones seem to lack, with an old golf cart and a grinder i decent rack was fitted.

I got away first day fairly early and a few km down the road stopped for a check on the bike, everything was good except the fuel pissing out of the bowl overflow  angry i took the bowl off and reset the float level to try and put more pressure on the needle and it seemed to help. anyway other than that and a sore behind everything else went well.

I met up with my Dad and his mate on their DR650s at the first camp and we all headed back together.

now pics.
