Laugh Chix in the Stix, No. Six - so they tell me

Time for a ride girls. This Chix in the Stix we have an international guest, and dear friend returning. GS Dane will be in Australia to ride with us once again. So here are the details:

16th and 17th March 2013
Spectacular Goldie Spur track is our goal, and camping in the beautiful Buckland Valley our destination.

As always, all women welcome. The road into the Buckland Valley is dirt, but easy dirt. Same goes for Goldie Spur Track, however it is steep and windy - lots of hairpin bends and breath taking views to take your eyes away from the road.

Carry in all your camping gear - remember it can get cold in this part of Victoria, even in summer. Also bring your food and water. The Buckland River flows by all the campsites, however with people up stream doing ???? in the water, and cattle, I'm bringing my own uncontaminated water.

I for one, can't wait.


change of venue, see page 6 for details, post No. 82.

Yep... will be visiting and looking forward to this one

I hope to see lots of great Chix on this ride (and in generel to meet - or catch up - with lots of friends )


I know that you are having a bit of a heat wave coming through at the moment... no matter how this is when I fly in on the 22nd of February it will be a major change to our weather here at the moment:


The first column is thursday, 10th of January and so on (yep, we do celcius!!)

See ya... cheers, GSDane.

Wow that's cold GSDane. Wish I lived in Victoria Miss Jane so I could tag along. Sounds like my kinda ride.

I don't think there are too many Chick ADV riders in WA. Maybe I'll ask around and organise some chix in the stix rides over here.

Have fun on your ride girls and post a RR for me too drool over, won't you?

Gark Janester. You're gonna have a busy March. Wonnangatta 1st W/E, Cold Flame the next, then the Chix, & the Sidecar Rally the W/E after. So when did you retire?

Hi TigerNoir... would be great if you could tag along.
Have just read your fantastic RR from your wonderful trip across the Nullabor (Perth to Victoria - One Girl & her Tiger 800)... and I reckon that you could just head across again and join us in March
Anyway... love your ride and completely understand your explanation about "nothing bravery... just got onto the bike and went for a ride"
And can only recommend the XC (that is if you have got long legs )

Hey Jardine... hope to see you on this one as well - but will definitely catch up on the GG

Cheers, Dorthe.

Only have the DR650 now, so no choice of bikes to ride.

What bike will you be riding?

So I'd better get busy and do an oil & filter change on it and clean out the instrument cluster of dust so it works before delivery to Miss Jane's this weekend. A Pit Boy's work never finishes

Thanks for the reply, M!
I didn't want to be that "pushy" and put it up myself
Looking very much forward to the Husky

Cheers, D.

I was supposed to be heading to the Buckland River Valley this morning, with the intention of camping over night.

However, due to the Harrietville fire still blazing, I'm doing a day trip tomorrow to check out the area between Seymour and Merton. I haven't been through there, but I've worked out a route that I think will be suitable.

Unfortunately this route will miss Yea, and Marmalades. This is a really big shame as they do excellent breakfasts, coffee and cake. But there is always the trip home.
