Take the unsealed roads out to Yellowdine, then start the Discovery Trail in Coolgardie. An extra day may assist with this ride - probably the preceding Thursday. See here for details on the Trail - http://www.goldenquesttrail.com/

And lastly - for those riders with a road bike or sidecar looking for a sealed road ride - I've fired up a little group on a new social networking website - check out http://www.meetup.com/Perth-Motorbike-Sidecar-Riders/ I'm trying to organise a road ride most weekends and occasional midweek night rides, and we've got quite a mix of riders and bikes joining in.

Welcome back from Thailand Rob - post up a photo of you cuddling a tiger why don't you
Blooy hell as usual my swing goes right through it might actually catch up with you guys for a ride one day (or are you trying to tell me something the incident in tassy was not my fault really)

Golden Quest Discovery Trail - Easter 2013

This Easter long weekend ride is firming up from just idle talk to a rough plan.

So far I've got expressions of interest from Slade 330 and Bald Eagle, and I've booked the Thursday 28th off work so I can get a head start.

Here's a recap of the plan so far:

Ride out to the goldfields to have a look over the 965km Golden Quest Discovery Trail. Take the unsealed roads out to Yellowdine, then start the Discovery Trail in Coolgardie. An extra day may assist with this ride - probably the preceding Thursday. See here for details on the Trail - http://www.goldenquesttrail.com/ Will aim to meet up at the Dome Cafe in Mundaring on the Thursday morning about 0845 for an 0915 departure. Have a shower one evening to keep Slade 330 onside.

... and to think that in my younger days I rode across from Perth to Bathurst one Easter to see the bike racing there - must have been about 1983 I think - watched the racing during the day from the top of the mountain and the riots at night time - now that was a wicked Easter weekend away

Koolyanobbing - Menzies

Doing Anne Beadell with Dennis & co. in June. Don't want to waste time getting to Laverton, but would like to do something different to the usual Hyden Norseman run. I'm thinking follow the Emu fence up to Koolyanobbing, then past Helena-Aurora Ranges and up to the Evanston-Menzies Rd, then on to Laverton. I did the Jaurdi Station-Helena-Aurora Ranges-Mt Jackson run a few years ago and enjoyed it. Can anyone advise on conditions in that area currently, and whether IYO it might be a good route to follow?
Thanks
Rob

Sorry I missed this one Konrad. Much damage from the recent fires out that way?
