[QUOTE=havafati;20497551]Here's what I did get


I was trying to keep an eye out for the point the speedo stoped!
Nice little sound grab editing
Good to see the healthy respect for the wild life........................... (what happens on the track stays there), what is that WIRES Number?

well done Fati hope the repairs are straight forward.

I will now need to remember clean your poo out of my air filter after a couple of those moments!

cheers Tinbum

Doing the northern ride tomorrow [Friday], dangerously sleepy @ moment - so will potter around the homestead for the day
Besides, I wanta spend some time chasing a few new [to me] tracks & check out some old favourites
Like someone ranted back further in this thread, every fucking track & road is being closed because of all sorts of excuses, mainly green flavoured ones!!!!
Cheers
Baza

Fish River Rd has been closed off for years, as has Old wheeo Rd, shame, it used to be a cracker of a ride!
If the sign remains but the gate is open, I'd poke on through and use the 'thought it just meant the start of a fire trail' story - or pull out the 'lost bush ape' routine ...

NIce vid. Looks to be a good ride.

How easy is Tallaganda to find the trails if you've only done it once before with someone else leading??

How long is a piece of string?

Get a copy of the NSW Forestry South East Forest Map. Great and mostly accurate map of the roads and main trails in Tallaganda and down the coast.

Thanks. Perfect :)

Any local shops that sell it, or can I get it in Queanbeyan?

I think they assume that bikes just make their own tracks ...
The map is great for planning, but these days its hard to go past GPS - with the Google satellite view in the background for a reality check ...

That was my immediate reaction and almost posted what stuser did, but they do qualify it with:
"and anyone who wants to explore the region's extensive public forest estate"

Of course the map also includes the various national parks too, so I guess the dog owners need to know where they can't go.

You are assuming the jocks belonged to Baz.



They could just as easily belong to a mate.



I didn't know you were a peeping tom either.
