I'm designing a sidecar to carry my next kidney stone.  Just not sure which side it will need to go on yet.  It won't stop us going west.

I'd join in your ride but I'm already here.   :ohyea:

Bugger the spelling!  :bunny1:

Why does your trike need 98 fuel?  Is it special?
No but it runs better on 98 and uses more fuel and runs more roughly on 91

If your trike makes it to Perth it might just make it the rest of the trip.  But personally, I wouldn't trust a late model Spyder to do it.  But hey, they can't ALL be unreliable can they?
THAT's the core of the problem, as I see it.  Add that there is no Spyder mechanic N of Perth, and travelling with the Jimny looks the attractive option.

Oh well, you wouldn't be the first Spyder owner to cart it round on a trailer.  There's a bloke in Albany who does that and hell, Harley riders do it all the time.   :thumbup:
Love your sense  :ha: of humour


Ride safe.   :drinkcheer:

No Spyder mechanics south of Mount Magnet either - or even living there - just Savage Motorcycles in Perth.  And Broome is spelled B-R-O-O-M-E.   And Fremantle is spelled F-R-E-M-A-N-T-L-E and Kununurra is spelled K-U-N-U-N-U-R-R-A, while Kumarina is spelled K-U-M-A-R-I-N-A  not sure which one your typing about coz ya spelling's so bad.   :chees:  You can check the non WA places yaself.   :wave:  But Meekatharra has 2 r's by the way.  Those places are in my back yard. 

Why does your trike need 98 fuel?  Is it special?   I'm glad I talked you outta the Grt Central Road expedition.  You& ya trike would have not loved that because ya trike likes good roads eh.  If your trike makes it to Perth it might just make it the rest of the trip.  But personally, I wouldn't trust a late model Spyder to do it.  But hey, they can't ALL be unreliable can they?

Oh well, you wouldn't be the first Spyder owner to cart it round on a trailer.  There's a bloke in Albany who does that and hell, Harley riders do it all the time.   :thumbup:

What I think is (and thanks for asking); if your trike makes it to Port Augusta without probs, keep going.   :yahoo:  If not, you'll be  :character0029:   and    :cry-1:  but you probly won't be alone.  We'll you probly will be 'til help arrives.   :chainyank:

How reliable has it been to date?

(I hope my sense of humour doesn't make you   :boo:.  I'm just like that  :wiper:   :teaser: )

Ride safe.   :drinkcheer:

PLEASE let's form a helpful & happy group to travel together to Margaret River.  Maybe a gathering at Port Augusta would work?  FWIW I will be riding RTS 1000cc twin + trailer unless ... (see below)

BUT what about AFTER the three day muster?  My desire is to go North.
Freemantle, Mount Magnet, Meekathara, Newman, Port Hedland, Broom.
Kunamarra, Katherine, Darwin and hopefully meet up with CMASA as we go
south to Ali Curong and (eventually) Adelaide.  BUT I'm worried about
my Spyder. 
It needs good roads and 98 octane fuel, and if I have any
trouble, how many Spyder mechanics are there in WA North of Mount
Magnet?  I might have to go with the 4WD Jimny, which also copes with any
rough tracks I might find inviting. What do you think?
