Grahame, Its a shame to see it go, I still remember drinking Rum with you at Canowindra and then the next day snapping my ACL and requiring a full knee reconstruction... well 2 and a bit years on and I am riding a WR400 and rebuilding the engine in the KDX200... Super keen to make some of the NSW Vinduro's... Aiming for Buladelah...

i managed to reduce the weight of my TT600 by replacing the whole bike with an 84 KDX200, Im a bit ashamed to tell you all what it weighs, its so light that it feels like Im cheating out there.

Mate, its a KDX, you shouldn't feel like its cheating :P

Might see you out here in a couple of weeks is it, we can wire an old bit of railway rail on to ease your conscience?

Ill try to put some weight on before I get there.

Steve might tar me with the "porky" brush like poor old XR350. Hope I dont end up on the menu like the poor goat.

I have it the wrong way around, I weigh as much as other blokes bikes and my bike only weighs as much as other bikes riders.

 "Porky".....that's all I said,........ about a  bike ......  Well ..... an old 4 stroke dirt  bike  .
   I've  owned  a few old 4 str dirt bikes ,  in the past ......for a while .
   Some of the porkers are OK .
 
  Come to think of it , most 4 stroke dirt  bikes  are porkers.  ??? 
 
  Probably why I got all 2 stroke bikes  in the shed   ;D ;D

I don't do auctions (ebay or otherwise) - so at the end of the 6 days does it sell no matter the price or is there a reserve?

No Reserve, there are 2 days to go and its up to $900 so Im pretty happy with what I get for it now... I think somewhere between $1000-$1200 which I think is a fair price...
