my Brother has a friend with a track hawk and tows a van with it, apparently he does get a lot of comments from the oldies at parks, from memory they don’t have a very high towing capacity?

Only 2950 towing capacity.However the sonic boom it makes would make up for loss .Tow my Discovery Outback really well.I am currently sitting in a caravan park in Bowen watching the Victorians pack up for the migration home.Only met one in the park worried about towing capacity etc.It looks like Qld transport going to really crackdown on overweight rigs, according to tv report the other night.

Oh well about time, I think a lot of Prado drivers will be worried, not hanging it on the vehicle but 2500kg towing capacity with a 20' foot van and a boat on the roof is close to the wind
Have you been down the wharf for fish and chips yet?

The really funny thing is if I close my eyes I can actually see you doing that monumental 6th gear flip in slow motion .... and its awesome
Its funny that cause when it happened it was like slow mo untill i hit the ground then things sped up quite a bit but i survived and the bike too bent handel bars both levers coped it few scratches but was quite surprized how well it did after the beating it coped
Lets not talk about flying along the beach point cook top speed hit a real mud patch very soft....... bike sunk to petrol tank hense to say another time i hit the deck but this time in front of the bike it stoped i kept going
Took hrs to get it out such fun NOT !!!!!!

I recall once looking at a lovely pair of leather boots, the ones that went nearly to the knee, high up in the air, then I realized they were mine but they were higher than my head which was at ground level and I was looking at my legs coming down to ground to join the rest of me, bike was down in the creek, thankfully the lantarna stopped from having a dip, girls I was waving at thought it was cool, my Dad who rode bikes said you can have 3, then you quit this was No: 2 , this was way back when helmets weren't compulsory but my Mum was very firm, possibly because of an incident with a horse on an AJS........

I've discovered that the Troopy brotherhood is a very strong community, we even have a special wave to acknowledge each of the legends that drive them (must be the Military name thing, never leave a man behind)



Oh look, the first Jeep arriving at the annual Jeep get-together

Not a huge turnout...... unfortunately many couldn't make it
