SA Adv/dbw Riders do Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia



Will we?......... Won't we?........ Will we?........ Won't we?........ was the question posed during the prior week, with temperatures estimated around 40C for ride day.
However with carefull route plotting, based on selecting the "coolest" in more ways than one, local southern towns on the weather map, we managed to keep in the "cool zone" (well! at least around 30C) most of the day.

Meeting in the very pleasant morning temperatures at Windy Point lookout kitted out minus the brain cell that says it's too hot to ride were Masterbrewer, Sol, The Misinformant (1st ride), OzAdvRider, Ian on the Vstrom (1st ride), CharlieW, drblue, Dorky Dave with Stallion & Texta catching up at Ashbourne



We descended into the lush hills, riding through pockets of very pleasant low temperature in the valleys





amazingly dry & parched on the left......................lush & green on the right







then out onto the winding, fast flowing, undulating, loose gravely roads for a bit of fun







a very pleasant atmosphere under the morning shadows..............



that is until ......................... the "single track Dominator" arrives with his fellow cronies









with just a bit of tar to link the "good roads"







then launching out of the scrub to savor one of the many spectacular views to put a smile on you face









drawn to challenge the valley below, we fly over the freshly graded (damn!) roads with a loop along olive trees





then through the secret entrance to another beautiful intriguing valley below







so peacefull!...................................



until....................................!







and then "the mosquito" sounding 2 smokered, texta arrived



regrouping to brush off the dust & clear the visors



The Old Bull Creek Road ridge past ridden on the horizon



Finally we arrived at the famous Mount Compass bakery.........and the girls came rushing out of all the shops excitedly to greet the gnarly adventurers & their fantastic flying machines.................the mothers rushing in doors trying to hide their children

"Which one of you handsome guys is Mister Trev?.............I've put your special pastie aside"



"May we offer you our soft, moist little pink things for your enjoyment too?"



After letting her down gently about Trev's absence, with our tearful tale of his pain & suffering or was that ours , everyone got on with helping drblue repair his flat tyre except drblue



Does it help with "the runs" too?



they'd obviously used it earlier



We waited at Strangways after a few of the guys missed the fire track entrance while Sol volunteered to chase them down

,

So he launched himself at a rate of knots after them down the fabulous Mt Alma Road, front wheel lifting often as he dropped over the sharp descent & against the strong gusty wind

(these photos were taken on a previous ride to show you how much fun he woulda had)




back on track





gathering speed on the smoother sections



and just when you need a little engine braking into a corner, The Misinformant's KTM started it's fueling problems & cut out launching him straight ahead & down



Cummon guys I've got an excuse, I've got the camera



After getting himself back together I escorted him to the top of the nearest hill as a thoughtful gesture

& pushed him over

............................................ towards home that is.

The well earned break at Yank



So that's what's been causing that buzzing sound I've been hearing most of the day!



Texta was helping at keeping the dust down too, but unfortuntely he was using expensive petrol



Myponga reservior looking pretty low



The bikies riding the "Wall of Death" in formation to scare the tourists



Down the fabulous Sampson Rd to Myponga Beach for a swim~!





The water was inviting, but the thought of getting the gear on again was just too much to bare





back on top of the world, some of the boys wanted to get even higher







Finally the view from Mount Terrible

"How the F##k do we get down from here?"



Another fun ride with great mates & commiserations to those who experienced misfortunes.

Cya again soon

Cheers

TDMKym

You are a gem MB. Another great report and photographs to suit. I'd say that, going by their faces, Texta and Michael D spent some time at the back of the formation.

Do you think that bloody Dominator will ever wear out a front tyre - seriously, there's about 300 photo's of it on the internet either hanging out on single track or jumping off some platform - honestly!

Hope everyone had a ball and that some serious training for the Flinders Ranges Classic - 2008 took place.

cheers

Laugh Braumeister, Du bringst mich noch um...

Masterbrewer, you're killing me.

Luring me from the calm waters of the carpe-tdm forum with pictures and then closing in for the kill with the usual ride report that makes my eyes water.
And I'm sitting here in rainy germany where leaving the asphalt is considered a capital crime .

Damn, you even delurked me here on adv-rider....

Glückauf

Hi Chooky & thanks for your kind comments.

Not sure when I can get over again with the bike at this stage unfortunately but continually looking for openings.

The next planned ride is this, if you guys are interested at short notice:

http://www.dirtbikeworld.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=39202

Seems there will be some local "different special tracks" knowledge attending.

Keep safe

Cheers
