A RR, of sorts....

Richmond Maccas for morning coffee meet prior to setting off.

Wardy talking to Thunderdownunder while Ron moves to another photo point.

The sign says it.

Tarana Pub for lunch.

The Mountain.

Rod1 on the dirt.

Lida on the little Yamaha, comfortably cruising the dirt.

GG [from memory].

And now for something completely different.

Saturday night dinner....before we all got rowdy in the pub.

My "home away from home", right next to bloody Frog Hollow where all the residents were in full voice for most of the night.

Packed ready to head for our respective homes.

Another "something completely different" moment.

Take a closer look, apparently I have a church named after me.

A final shot, the little KLE on the road past Hassan's Walls.

"WWA" was the first chance I've had to take the KLE away loaded for an overnight trip with the opportunity to compare its overall ability to keep up both on the road and on dirt against other Adventure Touring bikes.

Thank you to everyone who did the ride and made it such a great weekend.

And finally, thank you to Wardy for starting the idea.

Ock. in Oz

Windsor (near enough)

Did you know Thunder had the best time .... EVER

Stats - 2876klm
fuel usage - 4.9l/100km
offs - nil
Near misses - one - one very large Gander who should run not walk when hearing twin pipes on a country road.
Soiled underwear - One pair - M/L hitting gravel at 110k/hr and me right behind.
Best ride- Mudgee to Brisbane in 11hrs then on arriving wanting to go back to do it again.
Best Bike - Duuurh - it a V-Strom anyday (but a KLE is not far behind.. But behind it is)

OH and I declare the Saturn 5 inagural "overnighter" a complete success.
Thanks Wardy.
P.S did you know that V-chops and Astro Bob are Twins. they dress the same drink the same beer, have the same weird humour, snore in unison and even pitch tents within an umbilical cord distance of one another. You would never know it to look at them but its true I tell you.
