Thrashers Terrifying Treck 2009

It was a damp start 1030 at Gundaroo NSW


Rosscoat, Fish and Son (sounds like a law firm) arrive and are off
Son's exploits in the skate park on the CT110 are are now legendary



Beemer Downunder and Dirty Dennis arrived and we had a short but atmospheric journey to Collector and on to Goulburn in the drizzle.

A TS at the Taralga Pub - it was good to see some smokers.

Cool

Sharks rode up from Melb on his XLV - top effort



Free food for me at Taralga and a couple of Olds.

So no rain at the site? Pissed down all day in Canberra on Sat. Rally looks like a dirt bike convention.

Took the tar over Bells Line and down thru Shooters Hill to Taralga
Was pissing down and I wasthinking about turning around. While refueling at Mt Vic the clouds cleared and blue sky appeared.


Taralga Pub


DR city


The rest


Fire! (wind made it interesting)


In spite of rain overnight the track out was reasonable with only a few interesting patches

Eh? Bloody cold

On the way back via Oberon I thought it was going to piss down at Shooters Hill
Turned out to be snow, Now wonder why my hands were cold in summer gloves

I put my Goretex gloves on and was still cold.
The 'moments' from being blown over to 45 degrees did warm me up a bit tho
