I was heading down to shannons Flat thinking I could possibly go over the top to Jingellic.

I saw this heading my way



I was near Cooma when I realised I did not pack any wets at all!





Tiny bit of green feed near the road for skippy.

I think we passed you going in the opposite (i.e. more sensible) direction ...

A vivid blur of bright orange beauty, and an oily KLR ... ?

I should have twigged and stopped ...

Home again. Thanks for a great weekend, Numeralla!

Good company, good weekend, just a bit of rain. Yeah, it came down hard, for short periods. The Tiger broke down in it about 10km east of Numeralla on Sunday arvo - fuel pump died. Still, much easier to deal with that up my sister's way in Bundaberg, or my brother's on the north side of Brisvegas.

Thanks to Donks for rescue '1'.
Thanks to Dobbo for rescue '2' - about 3 or 4 km from home when it became apparent that I not only have a fuel pump failure but I also seem to have a fuel tap problem. Diagnosis to follow.
Of course, if Dobbo hadn't decided that we should take the two or three extra long cuts from Tumut, then I would've got home on the fuel I had. That would then mean that I would be none the wiser of the fuel tap problem. It's ALL Dobbo's fault.

I do hope everyone else got home safe & well.

That'd be when you bailed out of Angle Crossing. it was only .4m ya big girl's blouse.

Or was there any other incident?

Maybe getting horribly out of shape, many times, on Tinderry Rd? What was that about "no brakes, no traction, no steering"?
Ok, that was a bit greasy. And perfectly illustrates why I've decided to have a training wheel. Whilst your eyes were wide and your sphincter tight, I was enjoying myself.

"training wheel"...?

Angle Crossing 40cm deep on Sunday?
Amazing what a days rain will do... it was only about 15 on Saturday.

Sally and I made it home late afternoon yesterday, after spending a very pleasant night with friends at Cabbage Tree.

Thanks to the BergDonk/CJ modification to the sidecar suspension, we had no troubles, and the rubber block looks as good as when we left Numeralla.
Thanks Steve, you did a fantastic job, and I appreciate the help both you and Ray gave me. True ADVers.
