Kandanga State Forest.. translation.. huge hills, leg cramps, stomach cramps, loads of dust.. and more hills.. wish I was back there today..

19 riders in total..

JohnnyZ as sweep (who had a workout before we even started).. the first hill within 5 min from leaving the cars..







Standard track terrain..





Was given a very early tip from a fellow 300 rider.. ' hit the hills faster than what you think you need '..





Out in the open..



Regroup.. notice the dust..



Love having the contour taking pics every 'second'.. you never know what you will catch





Rhi.. exc 250 2 stroke girl..



Beautiful Pine Forest single tracks..



another 'Orange' catchup.. Matt H and Justin in the foreground..



Matt H running into something that he shouldn't have.. high speed and dust dont really work



Getting up close and personal with the embankment..



2nd attempt of the 'biggest hill' in the forest..



Craig lending a hand to turn this baby around..



Heading up on hands and feet.. must be fairly steep



Nice to finish up on a good note.. no injuries.. Thanks for the Ride..

Wow some great action shots there!
Had a quick ride with a few new mates about 2 weeks back in the middle of the glass house, Reminded me how hard it is to throw around a DRZ in the tighter stuff. There just isn't anyway to compete with the lighter 2 strokes

That, and they can all ride! Ohh well practice makes perfect

Kenilworth strikes again..

This is what 2 cracked ribs looks like.. and it was only 15 min into the ride...



Jimmy was as white as a 'Ghost '... and now very happy with a dose of 'Endone"..



Heavy over night rain and Kenilworth dont really mix.. an easy hill (technically speaking) that was impossible to get up





Time for some bike swapping.. Mat H on the Berg.

Quick Glasshouse run Sat morning along the usual routes...fairly busy with other bikes.

Photobucket

This is new.. friendly signs welcoming motorbikes.. could have at least used KTM's .. main brand running around..



Dust ruled on particular tracks which literally stopped me in my tracks.. not keen on riding blind..



Jonny Z who I'm sure struggled to see with all of that additional dust, cloud cover and rain...



The usual chit chat along the way..



A tight squeeze..



I'm really liking this 13 tooth.. instant reaction in the band.



Typical GHouse single tracks..



Out at Peachester way.. a few long rocky hills to negotiate..





Thanks for the ride.. next week.. Kenilworth with Matt H.

The increasing tempts caused numerous destination changes hence we ended up at GHouse - 6am on the bikes.

Unusual sight.. a new riding buddy..





Just following our noses.. a new explore.



and getting a tad quicker...



Love any sort of sand riding..





Numerous tracks around the base of this mountain..



Matt H.. time goes on and so does the heat.. we both went through a litre water / hr..



Alot of roots / knobs are starting to appear.. look out when its wet..



Down to some serious business... 2013 exc 500 v 2012 te 300.. and guess which bike was off the mark the quickest..







well.. I was in front for the first 100m or so...



105 km later and two very dusty bikes...

Extreme weather hasn't helped the riding situation.. Overdue rides call for lots of photos..

14 riders in total..



Wild storms left a few of the normal single tracks difficult to get the 'flow' going..







and being taller than most makes it that tad more difficult





and coming across the odd mud hole...



Exc 250 2 stroke ahead.. carving the way



Little tip..

When its hot, humid and rain approaching..



and by the way.. our sweep for the day.. Johnny Z ... still recovering from being sweep at Kandanga



Majority of the bikes.. umm let me guess..







except for MickD new 2013 exc 350



Just informed by Johnny Z that I'm leading...



Starting with a few single tracks.. and so does the pace..







to be continued..

At one point, most riders had to ditch the goggles.. torrential rain / high humidity



Regroup for the next leg..



Justin.. one of the quicker riders in the group.. exc 300.



Justin and Luke.. who had a massive 'save' on his bike.



As per normal.. with rain comes crashes.. even for the best of them





Luke.. save of the day



Random Pics..





and lucky last.. how to ride when you have 13 riders on screaming 2 strokes behind you.. (most of them)
