But I think the navigation is getting better ...

Just need to get a GPS that I can actually read ...

I'm kind of hoping you don't get a new GPS.

I like the rides where I have NFI where we are going.....

I didn't because I might have contributed to the confusion that day by thinking I knew a track that turned off and joined up with where you planned to be real soon

Like sticks in chain guides?
Buggers to get out when jammed in tight.

What's this S10 I hear of? I have been out of the loop!

Crap!! Put it back together last night, filled it with go-go juice this morning and the effing thing leaks petrol worse than before I changed the gasket!!!! Reckon the orange hammer may get a workout soon, but I will remove the tank again and have another squiz first.

Bugger, got something else on that's probably not as good, why didn't you mention this a few days ago ? Anyway going for a ride with Hal next weekend, probably up Hill End way, haven't worked out the details, we'll do that as we go. This will probably be the last ride before I go in to have my knee reconstructed. We need to get together for a drink or three one day.

Sorry Tanya only told me last night. We're here now. SHMBO is testing the latest vintage as I type. And the Riesling it is for the first tipple. Bring on my steak.

It was delicious. Char grilled beef was in a spicy Thai style marinade with salad and spats. Yum. Desert was stick date pudding in toffee sauce with cream and buttermilk ice cream. Very good. Tanya got all my wine as Mr Plod was about. She gave the Riesling and the Pinot Gris the thumbs up. Had a nice little back roads ride afterwards. Bit windy though. Lovely afternoon.

What time are you up and about tomorrow Baza, I've got your led light strip here.
Cheers

Be home after 1300 tomorrow, 0600 starts are giving me the shits but been a good run,
back on evenings [15-22], on Tuesday
Sounds like a good spot for a feed then, still reckon the 'Ewe&Me' @ the 'Thunderbird' is the best in the district though,
Cheers

I was hoping to get a ride organised for Thursday of this week ...

But work is in the way yet again ...

And the weather not looking spectacular either - worth taking the 'windy' bit seriously at present ...

EDIT: weather forecast for Thursday has changed again since posting - now sunny and 28C!

Might sneak out for a ride on Thursday, didn't make it last week, shitty weather - those high winds are gross at the moment,
reckon we've had 100kph easy up on the hill here, moved a water tank [500lt transport] off the loading ramp last week,
Cheers

Wicked Looking for single tracks

Hi all
Was wandering if anyone does any single track riding around blue range.
I've been told there is a lot out there.
Is this true?
I wouldn't mind catching up with someone who knows where it all is
Regards
Gravelman
