Ride on Sunday

Anyone up for an easy half-day ride on Sunday ... ?

Forecast is OK ...

Meet at Hoskinstown at 10:00am - head via Forbes Ck into Tallaganda, and down toward Cpts Flat - take Wild Cattle Flat Rd down to Jerangle Rd - continue to Tinderry Rd, then across to Michelago for lunch / fuel ...

On from there to Burra, then home in different directions ...

Let me know if keen ...

Absolute hoot. I rounded up a few 650 bonnies on the way home!

I agree - Steve is a pro you know, he uses a Lecia and carries a box of em the back or his Black R100RS http://www.netspeed.com.au/keo/

Four takers so far ...

If anyone else wants to play it by ear, just turn up in Hoskinstown at the T-intersection with Plains Rd a bit before 10:00am ...

Easy ride and pace ...

My mate and I went for a ride up to the Brindies on Sunday (a DR and a KLR). Got half way to McIntyres campground when we had to turn back due to the increasing amount of mud. Fell over quite a few times which doesnt seem to hurt the DR at all but the KLR suffered a bent gear shifter, brake lever and broken clutch lever (bark busters a must!).
As we are pretty new to offroading, apart from better tyres, is there any tips for staying upright when going through mud? My rear tyre just keeps falling into tracks causing me to be perpendicular to where I want to be going

I've found the "lean back and feed it" technique to work best, but not always successful.

Are you the Jake from yesterday's ride through Tally ... ?

If so, I was going to get your details at that T-intersection, but you'd already scooted ...

Good little ride - hopefully see you on another ...

[alternatively, you're not the same Jake]

Had two great rides over the weekend, going in to Thrashers and coming out of Thrashers. Absolute blast. Only drank 5 beers all weekend, made for a fast ride home.
Cheers
