CR500 and the Finke Desert Race

by Tim Weir
(Alice Springs)

Hey guys! My name is Tim and I live on a cattle station near Alice Springs and board in Adelaide. I am a dirt bike lover, and I currently own a CRF100F. Sooner when I grow a bit (I'm currently 150cm) I plan to upgrade to the CRF250L.

I have been riding Honda's since I was 8 (had two Suzuki 50 quads) and I love the brand. My Uncle won the Finke Desert Race twice on a CR500 and after a 7 year break is back riding Finke again on a CRF450R.

The CR500 has been on the Finke Podium a total of 34 times, including all three podium places in '98. My parents also compete in a Prolite buggy. My other Uncle came third on a CRF450.

Sorry for the rambling on! Love the site, Catch ya later!

P.S. Love the comment about 12 year olds! I am twelve and I hope I don't live up to the stereotype!

- Hey Tim! Well done mate.. you're an exception to the rule. Thanks for your input.
