Ah! The Ravioli Rally.
Always worth a look, some beautiful machinery will be there. It's a shame I'll be elsewhere, probably.

Damn, locked into a BBQ with friends (compatriots on the 2011 Oodnadatta track ride). Would have been good to ogle the sexy Italian machinery...perhaps next year.

Turned out to be a real nice day.

Didn't get to see many bikes, I got there about 11:30 and wasn't that many there with some leaving. As I arrived I saw a handful of some "vintage" era heading out.

Here's one you don't see everyday.


Took plenty of car pic's, feel free to go through and have a geeza.

Tugboat ride

Can you blokes that are doing the ride out to Big Red in May tell me what dates you are planning to go, roughly what the route plan is and what sort of bikes are going?

Cheers,
JD

Hey JD,
Theres a little posse of us heading up on the 2nd and 3rd of May. BergDonk (4wd) and Benz-in-Oz (DR650) will be leaving on the 2nd. Myself (R1150GS) and another non ADV mate (4wd) will be heading up on the 3rd. There could also be one other bloke along, non ADV, still waiting to hear what he's doing.

The route I'm taking on the 3rd will be Yass - Condoblin - Louth - Wanaaring - Tibooburra - CC - Inaminka - Cordello Downs - Birdsville/Big Red.

Then on the 7th Benz-in-Oz, Myself and my mate will be heading down the Birdsville Track to the Flinders and potter around there for a couple of days then home via Yunta - Broken Hill - Menindee - Ivanhoe and so on home on the 10th all going well. Plans are loose in case something happens to get in the way or we decide to do something different whilst on the run.

Hope that give you a rough idea of whats going on.
Cheers
Fati

And we intend to head west from Birdsville, then home after either doing a U, or left, or right turn somewhere near Dalhousie Springs or Mt Dare. 1500 km range in ute gives us options.

Better than sex?

I spent Friday arvo servicing the bike, oil, filter, air filter, new front sprocket, grease the linkages, inflate the tyres, etc.
I then took a nice ride on Saturday down to the Bega Valley, in company with a mate, Sean (the smelly one).
It took us around 5 hours all up riding time, and a 40 min stop in Cooma at the kebab shop, which has fantastic kebabs and good coffe from the nice Turkish man.
On that note, the cafe over the road on the corner of the roundabout has changed hands some time ago, new owners, everything hugely expensive, and utterly crap service. It's such a shame to see a proper old-style cafe turn to shit, they are few and far between these days. You've been warned.
We took a leisurely backroads ride home today too, stopping in Nimmittabel for brekky where we had a rather large and yummy bacon and egg roll and a decent coffee over the road from the bakery (which was packed, btw). At the bakery were 4 dirt bikers from Canberra, I dunno if they are inmates but they looked troublesome enough to be in here. They were also heading up Kybeyan to go to Wadbilliga, whereas we continued through Countegany and over Polly's Gully, then the regular dirt roads home.
All the dirt roads and trails were in good nick (lack of rain?) but the Tinderry road was a tad rough, prolly from the volume of traffic. We met maybe half a dozen fuckwits in fourbies but that seems to be how it is, they are entitled to not look, or speed like lunatics on loose dirt. Or simply block the whole f*cking road.
It was 2 days of relaxed dirt roads and trails, most enjoyable. I hope the other Canberra riders we met at Nimmittabel had a good result too.
