Laugh I went for a ride

Woke up Sat morning with no plans,
so I went downstairs and suited up, was too late to try and organise anyone else so I went solo, was gone 6 hours and covered about 370kms, nothing too exciting happened, turned around a few times as I had no idea where I was, but had a great time,
met 6 other people up there with no-one riding a registered bike :
didnt do many pics, as it was more fun riding

after 90kms of highway I was here



about 5kms later I was here



then I was here



also went here



and here




I dont know anyone by the name of Gus Beutel , if you do, can you let em know to lookout





next time I'm up there, Im putting a comma in


also did this stuff (warning: crappy video follows)




and that pretty much covers it

Dunlop 606 rear
nearly dead TKC80 front (will probably get a 606)


I like the rear in the dirt, but I find it a little skittish on the road, and fukn noisey
Front is good on the road, but very average in the dirt,

Forget the 606 front and get a 908F (still DOT) trust me.
