    Back to normal programming... I had to go to a funeral 430km away. I took the scenic route via farm roads. A long ride but very fast on wide and well maintained roads. Unfortunately the scenery is dull this time of year as its around seeding time. No wildlife this time so speed was high.

    Hi Chuffa, nice pics. I miss that scenery, so special. How many km on your Terra now? Any issues so far?

    Issues? Maybe kangaroos? Sorry, had to toss that in after reading thru your rebuild (and rehab) after the kangaroo incident a few years ago.

    Cheers Scott, Kangaroo avoidance is at the top of my mind every time I ride these days. Just have to live with it. CarstenB, I've got 66k km with not many long rides in the last year. As mine got dusted early, it's using a bit of oil. It's a pretty steady amount but no drama. Cable loom needs regular checking if your off road. It's wearing in places & I've used silicone repair tape to strengthen some areas. I still love the bike.

    Hmmm...maybe give a bottle of Morey's Oil Stabilizer a go....I wrote up a yarn a little while ago in another forum about the better half's oil-burning KLR (slowly increasing, too) after a mate recommended this stuff.
    It's still got me baffled, but oil-consumption has dropped to zilch (from about 500ml/1000km).

    Yes, this is part of the road! Jagged and steep. Oh, and don't slip or you fall into the Devils Punch Bowl.

    Finally got my own photo of the Crystal Mill in Crystal, Colorado. This is one of the most photographed spots in the state.

    Thanks for posting. It was a great ride! Now that I've recovered, next time on Schofield Pass, the TE310R, with LOW tire pressure! Oh, and "I" could lose 20 pounds and spend the year before working out!!

    Ya, but I could only see you benefiting on the TE310 for about 2% of the ride and regretting taking it for the other 98% of the time. The TE630 was perfect for 98% of the ride and a bit of a hand full on only 2%. I think you brought the perfect bike for the ride! Here you are now, right in front, just after surviving one of those 2% sections. :thumbsup:

    Finally found some time to take the Terra on a proper belated maiden voyage. Slabbed 500mls from Houston to Big Bend NP where i will spend a few days and try to hit as much dirt as possible. Love the bike! image.jpg

    Quite impressed how well she handles the dirt roads and at the same time doesnt mind to do days of 70-80mph on the highway. Smooth, 50-70mpg and dead reliable since the recall.

    Back home now. Stayed one day longer than planned in Big Bend and had to ride the 600 miles back home in one day. Terra did it just fine and my bum is not too sore.

    Awesome part of Tassie, innit?
    Hope you made it across to Mt. Barrow, the crosscut to Ringarooma via Mt. Victoria Plains and Ralph's Falls, Mt. William National Park and those blinding white beaches around Musselroe Bay and Petal Point.
    Just booked the boat last week for another 2 weeks in March, tenting around some more of the North of the island. Can't wait :-)
    Enjoy !!
