Townsville rides and crap

Just thought i'd start up a thread where we can post ideas of future rides or places we talk about going ,but never get around to it. Maybe someone might want call a saturday lemonade session at the Daly???, to discuss important issues like " The short comings of european motorcycles" Anyway ,to kick it off. Here's a few rides I;d like to get around to doing.
Blencoe falls ,Again.
Lake Dunn. Outback jack has a hut there and he would bring up fuel. Save heading into Aramac.
Lake Eungulla.
All these would be overnighters. Need some new ideas for day runs.

If your coming to the lake ole mate i will be tagging along, i'll drive the truck up with bike, fuel and beer and meet up at cape river and ride back with you lot . Some of the boy's from T'ville stayed there last week on a round trip.

Sounds good fellas. Give me a few weeks to get the bike back, and run it to work and back to test it. I'll get it in writing from Kawasaki that it's ready to do outback trips so they can fix it for free if it breaks down again

I'd like to actually complete the Dotswood-Mingela track too! HA HA HA


And I'm all for the drinkies at the Daly for discussions

Not a problem. I think the lake dunn trip could on in early october. I think everyone should be free by then. And it'll give your leg a chance to heal up a bit more. So if that time suits, let mark down 15 -16 oct. Might give mr tagati time to get a larger tank for the husky. Plenty of beer fridge space at my place galbo.
In the mean time , anyone up for blencoe falls in a few weeks time. We could make it a saturday day run if time is a problem.
Dan, hopfully your klr should be ready to rumble soon.

Okay, sounds like a plan, let me know numbers for fuel, and booze. Also i'll bring some steak, eggs, bacon and bangers for a BBQ tea and breakfast, i have about 8 beds at the hut but can organize more if needed.

Sounds good, all I need is BMW to get their act together and have the parts turn up before the 20th of Oct. which is the date they quoted me I wish they would not send them out by a German backpacker.
