It's the same story for the boboyan road through namadgi, coming from the south is no worries, coming from the ACT is a big warning sign "4x4 ONLY" where the dirt begins. Beats me.

Through Namagi is pretty good, no major gutters in the road, just a few potholes in the shadows though!
Where were you last weekend?, had a great crew out @ Micalong for the 'Bards'

Mate, I'll be honest. I looked at the weather and simply piked.

Piss-weak, I know. I did however go to a movie on Sunday with WifeSilla and earned some brownies.

I just got a new tyre on the rear of the KTM, so in the new year I think I will be motivated to get rego again.

It's still possible to get through on many where trees have fallen on fence lines but the trails aren't being maintained. The trail from Pockets Hut used to go straight down McLeods Spur directly into Brindabella and was used in some of the early Brindabella Enduros.
It is possible to go down the eastern side of McLeods, cross the Goodradigbee and up to Mt Ginini but it's not easy.
Leura Gap has been closed for years but going around the gate gives the choice of straight up the Mt Franklin Road to the left or Smokers Gap or Orroral to the right, with a few gates in the way.
The track down Stockyard Spur that leads from the Mt Franklin Road to the Corin Dam wall has just been reopened as a walking track.
Even the track down from the Mt Franklin Road to Brindabella a few kilometres south of the Bendora turn off has gates on it.
Broken Cart to Boundary Trail and then down over the sliprails into the valley was also used on old enduros.
The Cotter Rangers Hut has gates both sides.
So from Yaouk the legal routes are Rules Point, Broken Cart, Boundary, Brindabella Road or Shannons Flat, Tharwa, Cotter, Bulls Head. Sorry.


Thanks Ron, great info.

Had tried some of the trickier trails on a KTM300 years ago, however currently on a scrambler so it rules out a few of those routes.

Have approached from the North via Blue Water Holes, which leaves around 30km of the Lone Pine Trail to complete. I have taken the 'by any means' philosophy and will complete it on a push bike as it gets cooler.

Also good to hear the stories on park enforcement, better safe than sorry.

Thanks

Feel your pain with the Husky.

I got told today that my R100GS had arrived from US, after 3 months...

Only problem, it's in bloody Brisbane, not Sydney.

Bugger, bugger, bugger...

Cheers
Pete

Don't it shit yah.

I'll be lucky to get the Husky by Friday. Which seriously limits my holiday plans. Then Xmas lockdown. It's karmic pay back. So.... its back to the f'n paint brush. The demo is in and to be fair, Greg tried to talk Husqvarna Oz into giving me the 0 km demo but they said no - I have to wait. Still hope to have it b4 for Xmas. I miss riding a single. Keen to mono.

Might sneak in tomorrow and take their demo out for a demo

Do you want to come along and have buzz on it?

Dave

When are you going. I might be able to fit in a quick trip out there. This working racket is a real pain.

Simple answer : stop doing it. It's a choice between being poor and happy, or affluence and aggravation.
