West Takone trail Tassie

Went out with a mate today to do some poking about on a track he wanted to do.

Well i have a new DR that i only brought the day before and hadn't ridden yet. i head off about 8.45am and get out there to take some pics and have a coffee while he drives out in 4wd with bike.

First few pics and at this stage you couldnt wipe the smile of my dial, the DR loves the gravel and is petty good on the wet dirt n grass. So much easier than the Wee Strom which has been here aswell.

Map link HERE







Well at this point things are all clean and track looks good, mate arrives and we head of, he is two up.

One of the many little SLIPPERY bridges



Some of the thousand odd water holes.







Still looking good and im still smiling.s:




Greasy bloody track







By this time i have realised i have way to much gear on and im not 20 anymore, i am feeling my 40 + hips.









No we have just come down one steep hill and you would think it must go back up, well it did.



This was the last pic of the trail as we spent the next hour getting the DR with it friggin road tyres up the hill, she spat me off that many times it wasnt funny and i am not the fittest so i though i was dying, one should need to suck air so hard.

The worst was when we made it to the top i had left my helmet down there g:, its good to have mates who will go get it for ya :chug:.

Back at the start



This need to have better knobs i think.



I can tell you that i need to do more of this as i feel totally knackered, now i have to bloody clean up.

Your brave doing that with the original deathwings fitted !!!! Good to see that you and the bike made it back in one piece. One thing I miss about living around the Burnie/Wynyard area is the close proximity to good trail riding.

Cool as hell map feature! Looks like it would be a lot more fun (funner) with some knobs.
