I'm guessing after reading all of this, that the chocolate lovers were absent from the last ride.

Not one piece of chocolate was eaten all weekend.

Looks like that will change on the next trip though.

Well girls, I'm thinking Lake Cobbler might be the go for us. It's so pretty up there and the camping is great. The ride up is very pleasant with some good views and shouldn't present anyone with any difficulties. There is a short walk from the lake to a wonderful look out with breath taking views. What more could we want really.

So the plan would be to all meet at Mansfield.

What do you all think?

Ummmmm this is plan B

Might return to plan A, which is Goldie Spur to Buckland River Valley, or I have an idea for a plan C thanks to Grumpy, which is the Big River Rd.

Will have to see how the weather plays out and if the brushfire risk is reduced.

Oh and Jude wants to go to the beach.

Just to make sure everyone knows

Dorthe's return

How do I put these on again?


Getting Instruction on how to ride (well actually the Husky wouldn't start)



And she's off and racing (little reminder on what side of the road to stay on)..... I'm sure the Husky is much bigger than that, why does it look so small......?

Cobbler is less of a risk from fire, but could be risky from trees down. If hot anything with water at the end would be grand.

What about Bear Gully? Free camping, toilets, not a great beach, but still a beach.

Or The Prom?

Yeah, I know the Prom is touristy, but there are great walks and it is beautiful and has lots of beaches.

Great road in, but the last time I went in there there was more holes and less road. Well actually the last 5 kms back out and into Foster involved a hole that swallowed cars. Hopefully it is fixed now.

There are some great roads around that area, and not necessarily asphalt or difficult dirt, so could be plan X, what letter are we up to?

miss jane, let me know if you don't want random chick videos dropped in your threads.

very wet and slippery around bris lately but the girls continue to impress all with the stuff they tackle. one of the girls is preparing for the finke desert race this year on a new husaberg 300, and edited and posted her first video from last weekend.



she's embarrassing quite a few guys on our rides lately. especially one hill she just cruised up while one of the guys refused to even try and we had to ride it up for him.

No problem at all, drop away B1. Very inspiring I reckon.
Hey I particularly like the very end, I can relate to that bit.

Did a lot of bike dropping last weekend attempting a very steep hill that was a bit loose and rocky. Dorthe managed fine - as you can see she has legs so long they made the Husky look tiny, where as I couldn't reach the ground and just fell over. I probably needed to gas it. No pics sorry, we were all very very hot and dripping with sweat. Luckily this track was not a maybe for the Chix ride and it's never going to be either.
