    G'day Hugh. How goes it? Hope your health is going well.

    Need some advice on the DR's. I've dropped the DL twice on gnarly dirt tracks and lucky I had friends with me because I can't pick up the DL on my own any more (blaming old age).

    How easy is the DR to pick once it goes down?

    Other question is about long distance seat comfort. I've read that Sergeant replacement ones are the way to go (bit pricy though). What were you using on your recent trip to Birdsville?

    Any other good/bad things you can think of?

    G'day Hugh,
    Thought I sent a PM before but I think I stuffed it up! It's an OBD-S01 from Australian Motorcycle Components. Also I seem to recall you having a service manual, is it the American one? The Oz manual has a different part number and they want $195. US is only $90. Do they list the differences for the different markets? eg, E24 ,E28,etc?

    Hi Hugh, yep, got the site with the fire pit. Told the caretaker I was expecting around 15 small tents and he has grouped us up. Not sure about site numbers. So far a slow response so we will see if that target can be reached

    You a home brewer as well? A lot of friends I use to ride with in the GOD's are also brewing. Maybe you have something with the sub species. Use to race motocross on a Bultaco mk 3 Pursang and had the Ossa for beating around the bush on. Originally from Whyalla in SA so heaps of scub to ride in. I am away this weekend so will try my mate back home during the week and let you know how it goes.

    Cheers Hugh

    Hi interesting that you are into Home brew as well as Ossas and the like. Perhaps people like us belong to a sub species.
