Eh? Yass to Boorowa Take Two

Went out to have a look at the damage when big dam went @ 'Geegullalong' out on Cowra Rd. After meeting at the servo in Yass hunter_greyghost took us sight seeing on every track he knew. In a great zigzag we made our way to Boorowa for lunch. Great morning riding and home by 1400. Thanks Baza.
Cheers
Dave
Quick smoke break in Rye Park


Check out the height the windscreen is sitting above the headlight. Bazza has just hit a BIG rut and knocked his handle bars down a good two to three inches.


Somebodies there this time to capture the glory of the XS swanning through the causeway.


Bloody Handlebars again. Now wheres that allen key?


Are you sure. Sure. Why not?


Really?


Then a quick wash to cool off.


Cool being the operative word here...


Then it was up a little hill.


So we could see the dam that dropped a wall and flooded the district @ 'Geegullalong' out Cowra Rd.


A shaky zoom of the hole in the wall


On the way into Boorowa we met up with this strange looking beast.


And lunch was consumed before heading home


A great morning.

Nice one, anymore pics of the broken dam wall and the spillway directly below?

Not often you see that.

Good one havafati, just finished 'beauty' sleep, will post my photos tomorrow sometime, I think you got the best shot of the dam wall, we didn't really take that many photos.
Cheers
Baza

Here's the my photos;


Keep finding these slight holes! Handlebar twister!

Shit!


Bogged or parked as havafati would say!


Dave paddling the BM, a lot drier this ride but chopped out more




'Geegullalong' dam or what's left behind!
Cheers

Good pics fellas. I'd heard about the dam burst, but haven;t had time to go for a look myself.

See you on a ride one day!
