tomorrow is good for me.

Sunshine on Friday arvo. I changed my gearing back to standard 14/47 so now I have a lower first gear again. My stiffer rear spring and shortened side stand ( back to standard length-6 mm) should avoid a repeat of awkward stopping/falling over incidents when fully loaded. Tyre pressures dropped to 15 psi. I am ready to ride Gags.

Sailing Sunday

Utter Futility will be on the water Sunday, about midday.

We might even have a go at the race in the arvo, assuming we can remember how to rig the old girl.

We will want to build our handicap so Gags if you want to come along the extra ballast will work in our favour. Bring some afternoon tea! We reckon we will heave to at 3-30 and have tea and biscuits!

trawl a couple of lines off the back, you might be able to catch afternoon tea whilst having fun and working on that handicap.

We saw dust!

Well we did a couple of hours and mapped from Swan lake back into Portland.

The quick way was straight up Telegraph road on the way out with a diversion to the top of Mt Richmond. we saw a lot of 4WD about to play in the sand dunes

The pretty way back was limited by a lot of water that made some tracks unsuitable for bigger bikes, so we took a few detours and tried to avoid the worst of it.

I managed to do a belly flopper while going though a puddle! Did I mention that it rained again today. No more dust!

Anyway I have posted the section onto www.transaustraliatrail.com.au as Swat C2.

Gags can you send me the plot of your Nelson to Swan lake ride so I can upload that to TAUT. if you are not sure how to do it, can you bring you GPS tomorrow.

My leg is a little sore after being in the Sidis, but not too bad really.

We will have to wait until late December I think to do a C3, really X-country option back into Portland.

Uppy53 wants to go sand riding

DRDAve plans to go to Mt Gambier via the Pine Forest roads seeking some sand to play in to get experience. Is anyone interested?

What about Saturday? We could do a Portland to Nelson, Dartmoor, Portland triangle ride.

Much of the Cobboboonee is under water so I reckon it will be major roads through there ( dodging black exocets).

Sadly I'm out.....we have decided to rent out our old house, seeing as nobody is buying, so we have a few things to do before tenant moves in next week......I will be in Heywood if a rescue is needed
