Leisurely Monday ride. Yass and surrounding districts.

John -John- ['84 TT600]

Met at the Yass Caltex at 8am on a beautiful clear cool day. It was a great turn out for a leisurely Monday ride.


Out of town and turn right into Warigelia Road and then left onto Laverstock. Right onto Lachlan Valley way and about four clicks down the road it was a left onto Bendenine Road.

Baza (I was a bit to eager getting off the shot)


Struddy


Macca


Mark


Peter and John


With a ute in front dawdling along kicking up a lot of fine dust so the first smoke/slash stop was called.


Into and through Binalong and out on Garryowen Road and some secret Men's business on the route taken. Lets just say we we through a couple of front yards, well almost.

Plenty of grids as we crossed between properties.
Peter


Struddy


Macca


Another quick stop and the brains trust decided that the BMW riders needed a latte.


So onto the Hume for quick slab down to Jugiong for fuel and coffees.
The boys are back in town


Ah the BMW riders are happy, mug-a-lattes all round. Struddy wandered off muttering something about wankers.


Jugiong was a nice spot


John's lid started to grow wings


A little back tracking from Jugiong and it was off to Coolac for lunch. Along the way we met some of the locals, a lot actually.




Where the bloody hell are we?


I dunno


Get to Coolac in time for lunch. mmmm bring it on.
Mark and Macca waiting for table service.


WHAT???? ITS CLOSED FAAARK Macca needs food now!!!



Tumuts not far lets slab it fast for lunch.


Saddle Up!


Ahhh thats better a cold ale and lunch on the way.


Snhitzel and chips and gravey mmmmm…


Struddy's mountainous mixed grill

So after a fine lunch it was time to point the bikes in the direction of home. Macca told everybody he knew exactly where we could go and so off we tootled following him and a logging truck up to Bondo State Forest. About halfway along Wee Jasper Forest Road we turned off and went up to the Tumorrama(?) Trig. When I got home my neighbour Don popped in for a giday and turns out he cut those roads back in the day.
Views From the Tumorrmna(?) Trig


Macca finds the original Trig marker


Bloody thistle and blackberry everywhere, oh and one handsome dude


When the wife saw this shot see asked if Macca or John had lost their keys.


Looking across at Brindabella Road


Heading back down. mmmmm… thick and loose (like a girl I once knew). I then followed Macca to the Yass Road turn off at about a Dollar 10 most of the way, through all that loose crap it was a good slip and slide.


John


Struddy


Mark


Peter, Macca and Bazza


Macca and Bazza


Bazza


It was then onto the Yass-Tumut road bound for Wee Jasper where we said our see ya laters till next time.

Peter


Struddy


John


Baza


Macca


Rolled into the Garage at about 1650. Buggered. It was leisurely towards then end I suppose.


All up 330km loop.


Things I learnt today:
Wheres Struddy?
Mark doesn't like roads much.
WeeStroms look better go better with modified suspension and sound bloody awesome with a Staintune.
You'll never hurry Baza.
Maccas a funny bastard.
Johns a dry bastard.
I'm a silly bastard.

Till next time fellas stay safe and stay upright.

Cheers

Thanks Bazza it was a top day and the weather was just brilliant. Can't wait for another day off already.
An interesting note on Bazza's comment about the old bikes, I had trouble keeping up with both the TT 600s at different times yesterday. But fark Johns rebuilt TT 600 disappeared quick smart out of Wee Jasper on the ride home. I reckon if he hadn't of pulled over I wouldn't have seen him again.
Cheers
Dave
