If you are talking a mid summer ride, the Barraba Track to the top of Mt Kaputar would be the coolest option. There are showers and camping at Dawsons Springs and it would be 10 degrees cooler on top. Gateman could get the key for the gate

It would be a bring your own everything kind of deal though.

Whatever or where ever, I'll be doing my best to get there. So count Nandewar in - unless it involves the Bledisloe and Brotownboy

Yeah Brett you may be right, those ag pilots are a dangerous breed

OK well an overnighter to kaputar might be on the books then as well!! I wonder how Jase will go with the 950 up some single track?? (let alone me)

Anybody going over to the pony express in horton next weekend?

I cant make it as I am taking the missus away for a holiday but as usual I think it would be a top day

Mate, I'm always up for a challenge.

I've never been up to the top of Kaputar via the Baraba Track, but I remember the lower section being a good run. Keys for the locked gate at the Baraba BP. I'd love to give it another go, the first time I was 2up and the hand break through out the anchor when it started to get interesting.

No Horton for me, all this work and family stuff seem to be eating into my riding time.

I can relate to the work and family time cutting into riding time!

for the horton ride there is allegedly a road through spion kopp (spelling) that is awesome and hardly travelled it runs along the mountains to maules creek Brett do you know anything about that?

I would also like to do that ride over blue knobby onto table top and out on to the barraba road I did it in 4wd as a kid and its sticks out as a challenging section!

G'day Lentil. I like the Kaputar idea and Lindsay would be in it to.
The key is no problem to collect and return for me. Single track?Hmm I think bash bars go back on hay. That area has some real good photo ops for those with pictorial intent. Gateman

Circumnavigated the island of Rarotonga ,Cook Islands, all 32kms of it on a Nifty50. Does that qualify as an Adventure.

You can do it hard but do it safe.
