    Dust Hustle.

    I heard about this a month ago and thought fuck yeah. It's riding road bikes on a flat track for fun not racing. So I entered my Gixer but super sports not aloud so now I have some work ahead of me. I have my dads old 82 GSX 1100 ez, hasn't been going for at least six years, I now have about 3 weeks to get it ready for the dirt track, I can't wait. Anyway I thought this sort of thing would be of interest to most you out there.

    Yep I'm going with a mate, camping the night. We were going to get my 1992 GSX-R750 set up for it but as you say, no Superbike/Supersport bikes allowed. I'll probably buy something to run at a future Dust Hustle.

    Was talking to Hughan from Ellaspede and he said the clutchless class (up to 150cc) is the most fun of the four classes running, so I'll probably go with that - postie bike is probably the easiest way to go.

    I've cleaned the carbies out, done the plugs, oil and filter got the headers back on, just need to adapt a muffler, spray some rattle can black around the place and hope I've managed to seal the rust holes in the tank, oh and get some brakes working up front.

    The tyre is a TRACTIONATOR Adventure, you have to say it out loud.

    Have run the "Tractionator" idea past the officials? Might want to throw in a spare set and something to change 'em with, just in case!?

    Loving the bikes and love for this event. You need some more rust on that chain Craig.
    Oh, and welcome Limiter. I'll keep an eye out for the big single.
