Bikes + dirt + buddies + beer = GOOD!

We grow in strength as legend of the Tiger Squadron spreads throughout the land.

Welcome to the latest of our ongoing adventures, this time to the VIC/NSW advrider gathering at Jingellic.

Not a lot of time this ride for me to take pictures on the road, hopefully some of the gang will post up their video and happy snaps.

Another early departure.



A great variety of bikes/riders from the latest farkled out beasts to Liam’s old school single which has been round the clock once or twice.

I think Liam invests all his love and polishing time into his Harley…



The initial ten departed for a slippery and very cold climb up Mt Donna Buang.

Mr Chris was rather proud of the new lights he’s installed on his Tiger.




A fallen tree hiding around a blind corner provided a little excitement but otherwise a blissful ride playing catch me in you can with David on the DR650 along the Acheron Way.

Some were surprised at the lack of kamikaze kangaroos through the forest. They were reassured that clearing the way was all part of the service, my snarling Tiger had sent seven of the fury buggers scarpering into the bush.



We met up with Mr Pete, Captain Triumph and Fossilator (fresh off the boat from Tassie) for morning-tea at Henry VIII Manor (pancakes) at Narbethong.

Old mate Dennis was in fine form. Big Rob shows his appreciation…

An easy bitumen cruise before the fun began with some favourite short-cuts and diversions through the Strathbogies.

KiwiTiger on the big girlie.



Sysie looking the part on the Tenere.



Mr Chris, Speed Racer and Captain Triumph.



Mr Pete.



Yep, we is goin to them thar hills…



We rode past a big group of squidly sports bikes on our way to petrol in Mansfield. Now I admit it is childish, but I was disappointed in that they settled into lattes instead of taking the lead through the corners. The look of shock at being round-up and passed by a raging hoard of dirty giraffes would have been priceless…

I swapped bikes with Nigel (Celebrity Africa Twin) for the ride down into Whitfield.

After sampling my Tiger, he’s convinced all us Tiger riders are cheats, what with riding bikes that have power and handling and brakes…

Liam stopped for a little tumble. Despite damaging some of his prized racing tape, he didn’t seem too upset.



We suspect that Troy (Speed Racer) runs on caffeine. A double shot latte with a Monster chaser…



Captain Triumph fights his way through a Whitty Burger.



After lunch, Famous Rog and I played flat-track loonies on the way to Lake Buffalo.

Photo at a familiar spot. If our numbers keep growing (three were delayed by random cows), I’m gonna need a wide angle camera…



Running low on cash, KiwiTiger racks his brains looking for a discount in Yackandandah.



The ride through the Granya Gap had us all grinning like loons.

As per usual, we had run late and so raced the setting sun into Jingellic.

Oh well, we had Mr Chris’s new lights so that we didn’t have to pitch our tents in total darkness.

Into the pub for a few beers, dinner and a catch-up with the other advriders.

Sorry Mr Pete, what can I say….



There was a fire.



Next morning.





I really did feel sorry for this chap. He’d set-up camp well away from everyone and woke up surrounded by the Tiger Squadron…





Thanks to Dobbo, we feasted on bacon n eggs for breakfast.

Well I guess it’s one way to stop your Tiger falling over…



Seriously though, a tasty conversion by Tripod Tiger.


I know it’s going to end in blood, broken bones and tears but man it was mental fun two wheel sliding on the gravel next to the river…

Vision, we don’t need no stinking vision…



I think Speed Racer started to understand why I was determined to stay in front.



Famous Rog already knew, but didn’t seem to mind.



There’s a mountain not too far behind the tree…



A little more water than last time at Jingellic in 2010.



Standing room only.



Liam couldn’t help himself and just had to sing a little song…you know, the one about a ferryman…



Well, the operator did say “sit back, relax…”



We stopped for second breakfast at Tallangatta.



A second visit to Lake Buffalo and then into the forest before lunch again at the Whitty Café.

We said our good-byes at Yark.



Thanks to the Tiger Squadron for a brilliant weekend away. Perhaps next time, we pick somewhere a little closer to home so we’re not so rushed…

Trip distance: 995 km (for me).
