We were up there yesterday having another poke around. Getting warm and dusty now and got quiet hazy as the day went on. Not sure but think we may have passed Hodgo on the way out on his SE being followed by a gaggle of Kawasaki's. Does he have a high viz green helmet?

Found a nice place in the shade to cool down and chew some jelly babies for a while.


Found this old tree stump that looked to have been cut down many moons ago judging by the knotches in the trunk.

Hi,

I am new here, but not new to bikes etc.

Is there anywhere where people can post waypoints or track files from the GPS etc?
In particular for the GlassHouse Mountains area.

I am quite keen to find that massive hill clime thats out there...

Hey, welcome to the Aust Forum.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=45

That's a link to the Australia GPS forum. You could try on there.
Otherwise, the best way to find the really good tracks is to go out with a group. Hook up with a Caterpillar Tracks ride

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=655072

or one of Peter GG's rides on this thread and you will get shown all the good places to go!

Easy.

WOW - I managed to convince my missus buying a postie for her (cough cough) would be good idea.and of coarse I had to make sure it went alright on hardcore posties.. I even did some specials mods on it too...she rode it once and fell off and hurt herself..

so I see you/she have upgraded the suspension ! and obviously been a pretty hardcore fast rider a crf230 wasnt going to cut it..

lucky bastard.. cough cough - sorry lucky tinky... ahhh fun fun fun - I am jealous..
