    Some of you may be familiar with the TW I have built over the past few months. This is her on a trip up to Stockton beach three hours north of Sydney in Australia where you can legally ride/ drive quad bikes, ATVs, horses, camels etc. Pretty much anything goes as long as you get a $10 permit. Here are some photos and videos of us having the time of our life bombing round the sand dunes for a wk end.



    This is the beast on the dunes. Stockton beach is the largest sand mass in the Southern Hemisphere or at least Australia. Lots of sand is all you need to know really.

    Looks like what used to be some kind of accommodating beach hut of some sort. Makes for cool pics either way.

    This my buddy who has a suzuki DR650 which flipped on top of him on the soft sand and burnt a nasty hole through his pants onto his leg. We assume this what Mars or looking for Atlantis must look and feel like as there is literally nothing but sand and ocean for miles and miles. It's unreal.

    This is me launching the T-DUB of a little sand bump on the dunes. Guaranteed laughs if you watch the outcome of the landing haha

    This is a ship wreck that washed up here in a 1974 storm that has been here ever since. She's slowly rusting away these days but still gives you a real weird vibe as you ride past it. The beach itself is obviously quite dangerous too and we found out it is a breeding ground for great whites so it was lucky we didn't get in there for a swim haha

    Got ourselves a go-pro vid of the trip courtesy of my buddy Ryan on the DR650 and also my mate Simon who is on the Suzuki DRZ 400 which struggled through the sand with the narrow tyres. There are some funny bits (falls) in the video that are worth watching for laughs, otherwise all in all a great wk end was had on the TW which was the definite winner in terms of managing the sand which it did very well. Let me know what you think.

    Cheers, Slinky

    Can you post your vid in different format? Maybe put it on YouTube.
