Half way acrossThe Nullarbor when,

I just happened to look down as my odometer went from 99999 to 100000, I do have the photographic evidence which will be posted when I return home. Currently in Port Lincoln. Not a bad effort for a K9.

Well done BT.

I better get on my '09 more, seems to have "stalled" at just under 62,000km since I bought the KLE500 [spending more ride time on bush roads/trails lately].

Hope you are having a great trip.

Ock. in Oz

congrats Big Tone, I thought I'd done well on my 03 Vee having just clocked 35k, and at that rate I might have this thing till the end of my days and it will still be running sweetly. A mate has an 04 Vee that has over 180k on it and all it has needed is a cam chain tensioner replaced at 170k so plenty of worry free k's up your sleeve Tone. When you get into Melbourne let us know and we may be able ot catch up for a coffee or ride if you have time.

Tassie, heaven on 2 wheels!

That's a lot of smiles you've chalked up BT. No need for the pic, I didn't think you were spinning a porky.

PS. Do you ever have time for a job?

I have an understanding boss,when I was offered the job I told him I could not start when he wanted me too as I was going to Bright for the strom gathering, also told him I needed 3 weeks of in May to ride around Norther Vietnam and also 7 Weeks from October 2012 to knock off the round Oz trip. He said yes to all , should have asked for more money!!!!!!! 4 weeks before I left I also got promoted to the Launceston managers job and he still let me go, should have asked for a shed load more money.
