Do they still have all the good give aways?
Still have all the giveaways......and the speed I travel, especially on the ridge top, I get a good view of the valley...but I still have to hold on for grim death.

Although if you look down too much, I find I get vertigo...

Browtownboy and I got inspired with all this talk of a ride and met up near Terry Hie Hie for a quick spin. The road is the eastern gravel link between Narrabri and Moree. We then slipped over the range on the Terregee Rd to Rocky Creek and then into Bingara for lunch at the Imperial. Pete then scooted home via GravesEnd and I slabbed it through a thunderstorm back over to the western side of the mountain.

A great easy ride.
This is Terregee Rd. It is one of my favourite easy loops from Narrabri.

We stopped off at Rocky Creek for a cool off.
An easy ride with a bit of whatever you want without the people and traffic. Who would live anywhere else?
Have a good weekend everyone

Narrabri

Hi Guys,
Just found this thread (Gday Brett) & thought I'd give an update on the roads.As a local I ride SPION KOP,Barraba/Kaputar 4wd track,Terridgerie etc regularly & they are all easy enough on a BMW12G as we have taken guys on all these roads. Spion Kop has recently had a big upgrade & I bet you could put a Commodore over it now (fukked up agood ride!!!!!). Barraba to Kaputar is a great ride with a few tight spots but doable on 12g; a few issues with the key, they only have 10 & 1 is needed per bike, they don't release any keys if it looks like or has rained even a few mm's, & they are supposed to be returned same day making it hard to do a loop from Barraba to Narrabri, keys only available in Barraba not Narrabri.I am certainly interested in a ride sometime but harvest is looming so all October NFG for me.
Ride on, Bardo.

Hey Bardo... you're da man. You know every little goat track in the north west. What the hell sort of name is SPION KOP anyway???

Sounds like November is looking like the time for a ride. I'm pretty keen on an overnighter preferably around a camp fire. We've got Uralla, Gunnedah, Moree, Coonamble, Narrabri, Tamworth, plus a few ring ins from North of the border and sorry to anyone I missed. Sounds bigger than Ben Hur.

So where are we going to go????

November used to be the Byrock get together. It has fizzled in the last couple of years. Maybe we need another venue for us northeners instead of the Pooncarrie/Mungo run.

Greg posted Nindigully as a suggestion. There is camping available and if it gets too hot we could retire to the bar. It might be easier to organise too if there are more than a hat full of starters. We might even be able to get a few more from further afield.

We might have trouble finding somewhere cool Tinyjk, but there are plenty of places that we could work up a thirst getting too.

Any other suggestions?

This brings back memories Leith.I love camping there as there is usually no one around.I camp just behind where you took this photo and usually get a good feed of fish too.

What about Warrabah? That pic of Leiths has brought back some good memories. Good camping with a cool relax in the river knocking back a few ales sounds pretty good in Novemeber heat. Could be a meet out west somewhere, SPION KOP Saturday, then a run over through Kaputar on Sunday.

G'day boys.
I think I have the key problem solved.
My wife could run out and back in to get the key back to town etc without any trouble. We can sort that however this turns out to run.
We are off for a picnic today so Ill do some recon on the key issue.
I can't see what the problem with onighting the key would be. greg should be OK.
Regards Gateman.
PS: us old farts on oversize bikes might need some options/ alternative routes if I feel a bit out of my depth.
