galas


this shows the height of the windmill almost 2 time the power pole

This a Black soil road to one of the neighbours farms goes for a couple of k's very fun drifting out and trying to stop the wobbles keep in a solid track and always accelerate u can't go wrong

For my ways are strange ways and new ways and old ways,
and deep ways and steep ways and high ways and low;
I'm at home and at ease on a track that I know not'
And restless and lost on a road that I know.
Henry Lawson

Do you ever get that feeling there is some Ivan Milat character behind u

when u are trying to take a photo?
We have these contour banks all over the farm to stop erosion, they make great jumps

Quaddies are fun but i nearly crashed in to a gate, so used to the ktm when i came to brake i reached for the right lever and there was nothing there (front break is on the left where clutch is on kato) luckily dumped the right foot on back breaks and stopped in time.
Went rabbit shooting with a good mate he doesn't talk much but a good friend and trustworthy will guard your bike with care.

Great pictures and ride report, thanks for posting.

If I had climbed that windmill I think my lunch would have beaten me down

The campsite looked great, I can't believe that pile of firewood, that would make one hell of a bonfire!!

quirindi

Leaving the farm barley stubble and windmills

tarmac flat Out passed thunderbolts rock a bushranger used to hide behind here to robb Cobb and Coh coaches of their goodies. He was a bit of a legend he loved horse racing and knew where to steal the fastest race horses so the police could never catch him. Shame about the garffiti i would like to see it as it was.


Ebor falls the rain has made it run very full and it looks great it has top notch camping facilties as well good bbqs and pretty technical billy boiling stands.


this chair with a view great spot to stop for awhile


view from chair very nice

The Ebor falls in full bore very nice great place to chill as u prepare for the hard twisty ride ahead one of the best sections in NSW

This for the guy that said the windmill made him queasy no hands please enjoy about 2 to 3 times as high as a power pole.

ebor to nymbodia road is amazing twisty uphill through almost rainforest beauty absoutely stunning.

Nymbodia - gratfon - casino - lennox

A great Aussie pub Nymbodia Hotel lost of old photos and excellent beer garden over looking the river, I was the only one there on my trip superb the river actually comes straight at u and bends around the beer garden. In summer u can walk right down take a dip, a great place with some good family history.

Beer garden view superb

the actual view from the table i was sitting at one of the best white water rivers in Australia crystal clear water as well
hope u enjoy it that is it for now have a lot more but need a break for now.
Next i go upto lennox, Bangalow for billy cart racing then back down south and a testing trail near nundle

North coast now

I'm at the north coast now old stomping ground rolled over the casino g=bridge when i saw this view had to stop and walk back for pic, great river with playtpus living down the bottom used to see them crossing it to go to school in the morning.

then gunned it through to lennox my sister lives here so checked out the view in the morning.



in the distance is the Byron Lighthouse the most Easterly point in Australia so now all i have to do is plan a trip west to the other end hope to do it in july, alice, the rock darwin to see relatives and broome etc.

It is a nice part of the world bu gets crowded the further north u go
sunrise off lennox point
My sister kid a true legend someone to emulate as i get older totally fearless super rider.

Upto minyan falls near clunes set up camp started a brew then it pissed down for the whole night, sat in tent had to watch ipod movies, bourne ultimatium and luckily some dakar 07 and romaniacs Cyril dpres won them both he is a very tidy rider.

In tent a good test for it as it didn't leak after monster storm flooded a creek running thru campsite watching ipod suprisingly good when nothing else to do

woke upto perfect sunny day just a bit cold but called off my plan to walk to bottom of falls and get eaten alive by leeches if i survived the sodden path.

leaving minyan falls to bangalow billy cart race

causeway to minyan falls not as spectatular as the others i have seen





waterfall bit pissy
Then down to Bangalow for the annual Billy cart racing, very big this year with tonnes of entrys all unique i tried to cover the whole spectrum i like the old school ones the best and the Uncle models are good to see.


Fit looking kid with a solid machine i was cheering for him old bugg a lugs on the tractor chasis go son



A sweet pimped out ride that i would make for my kid simple but in it to win it all speed

Some backyard carp with fake pretend rear discs come on your son must be so embarrsed to pilot that heap of alu carbon fibre carp give him a real one without air con and ipod charger.

Uncle some good guys

If u look at this billy kart it has Uncle written on it that means the kids are from a single parent family, no dad (a lot of them up here). Some guys with some skills and tools got together and now help the kids build a billy cart for the race they all have UNCLE painted on the sides top blokes I reckon
I will have to build a slick one for my sisters kid he could have won on his 3 wheel bike anyway.

A chopper rolling in style

Back down south weather turned bad

Out west where the stars are brightest,
where the scorching north wind blows,
And the bones of the dead gleam whitest,
And the sun on a desert glows
yet within the selfish kingdom
where man starves man for gain
where white men tramp for existence
wide lies the Great Grey Plain.
Henry Lawson.

Woke early and checked the view at quirindi too excited to see what i was looking at i had 3 road choices and picked the worst the road to the left was the one i took straight into the freezing clouds u can see in this pic. Cold drizzle rain when i could have taken 2 other roads perfectly dry, very stupid!!. I actually drove straight towards the bad weather and into those clouds at about 1000m above Nundle

I envy you. I live central to much of it and can't motivate myself to do it. Lucky we have you to post for us.

Thanks

Thanx for the ride!

I am intrigued by the 2nd pic in post #5. Which way does the road actually go? The road signs in the hairpin post point left and right both ways at the same time?
