Thumb ACT ADV Riders Thread...Discover the ACT and surrounds.............>>

G'day, welcome to the ACT ADVriders thread.

IF you are new/unfamiliar to Canberra and its surrounds, this is the place to contact like minded motorcycle adventure enthusiasts.

Post articles/links/photos etc of interest to anybody living in/visiting the ACT.

Don't underestimate the riding opportunities on offer here.
Nor the climatic extremes...
Nor the stupidity on display by cage drivers....

Canberra to Tumut

Great idea - here is an RR we made of a day trip over the Brindebella's to Tumut.

Well hello everybody, this should be an interesting thread,
how many shiftworking crazies this in area
you know the ones that have to enjoy mid-week dirt road rages?
I'm a local in the Yass district, still finding roads to explore
out Boorowa, Reid's Flat Crookwell, WJ, etc
some good riding to be done yet


POst on here if your up for a ride somewhere around this area,
If the shift horoscope pans out, I may in for some R&R midweek.
Cheers, Baza

Howdy Baz, I'm also an accursed shift worker. Currently on my second day of 4 days on (then 4 off). 2 x days, 2 x nights, then a 4 day break, but the first day off I finish at 07:15 so that day is a write-off. Are your shifts similar or in synch?

Have to be a sneaky quick ride as I'm on nightshift, early start - early finish, quick loop up Boorowa way & back by 1200/1300 so I can get some beauty sleep! Let you know when & if I decide [will consult weather horrorscope!?] back in a minute.
Back again, weather @ BOM says low @ moment for Mon/Tues, [if you can believe them!], I'll let you know Dave, got muddies on?
Want to have a look @ damage when big dam went @ 'Geegullalong' out Cowra Rd., [my childhood property]
Cheers

I don't have muddies but I'm game all the same. A quick one can be a good un and I'll even take a pic of you riding the spillway. See how it is Sunday. Decide then. I'm cool on any direction.
Cheers
