I know the answer to the green Balfours Frog but will leave that to MB. Home, 1 x Corona gone already, and a hot shower awaiting - gee, I'm cold. 400 kms for me and left home at 0700 and back at 1600 - long day.

Do you believe that MB didn't see this coming.....2 seconds later the big Yam spat mud all over MB whilst his hand/s were sort of busy. Welcome back MB,,,

Well done Richard.

HTFU ol' boy, you loved every 'wet' moment

It was fabulous today finally feeling like "I'mmmmmmmmmmm nearly baaaaaaaaack" to good health.

Now having so much empathy for anyone feeling poorly, I wanted to cheer Trev up as he was clearly showing signs of trauma as he's obviously just realised that he will never be as young again as he recently was .......... happy birthday mate & thanks for all your support for my wife & I over recent months.

Good stuff MB, glad to see your out on the trusty TDM again & riding a bike IMHO is good for your health providing you don't hit something that is LOL, it was cold today Trev so much in fact that I just ordered hand guards for the Triumph, one finger goes to white & even blue in this weather.

if my plan goes ahead for a new bike I might call on your map skills to help with dirt routes to the Flinders...want to get a XT660R or XT660Z & do the big trips.

Cheers Terry

I get around Conman, had to get up at 0600 on a bloody Sunday to make it to this one, but had a great time so it was all worth while.

As for Froggie.....it was my birthday during the week and MB presented me with a cake!! Like I need the calories!!

Go and get your big bore Con, you would have enjoyed today also...

We started out under clear skys & brisk clean air with fog hanging in the gullies, but unfortunately turning into numerous passing showers as the day grew on.









The frequent showers glassened the roads nicely to keep your witts about you, and together with the occasional churned up clay patches as you crested a rise or two, all made for good character building riding.

Michael D took the cake however in his haste to get to the Normanville bakery for lunch, overcooking a corner & launching his DR into a deep pool of water by the side of the road and showing amazing skills in surviving the pressure wash.



The warming 'Charlie shuffle' worked for him









Obviously some of the guys were in awe with the stunning scenery



With the final sections riding through misting rain, but all still good



And finally resfreshments to settle the dust .................. ooppp! can't use that excuse today



He looks good for his age, doesn't he?



Fabulous day out with great mates, many thanks

Already planning "The Fleurieu Ridges In Reverse" ride.

Hopefully cya soon
