Remember that drop into the Conners is steep, don't be going to fast and do a skiddy like AD done on the CCC. Oh and Croc's at Twin Bridges, yeh right!

Aqr

Some bastard has pinched our public holiday!

I was talking with Jock at Kenilworth a few weeks ago.
He had been in deep discussion with someone high in the AQR chain of command about this years run,
and mentioned they were looking at the possibility of doing a run CQ to Birdsville for Bill's send off on 6th May.

Just read a couple on a bike collided with a emu on Selma road today, woman is dead man has been airlifted to Rocky... real bummer.

Was taking it very easy along there at 9pm on Sunday, i30 isn't going to take much of a hit.

No not yet, kinda draining my bank account looking for work. Have an interview tomorrow, if that goes well I can start thinking about having fun again :) The other half is a bit concerned about me riding out here, I might be grabbing a spot tracker to try and ease her concerns. This emu thing hasn't helped, and no doubt we'll get the details from her police officer sister.

You should get full ,phone coverage through there anyway. You got more chance of getting hit in Emerald by a 3 o'clock housewife then an Emu.

10 Day ride in March

A couple of mates and I are heading out for a ride next month.

Leaving Proserpine on Sat 16th March. No real fixed route as you never know which roads are closed that time of year and which rivers are up.

The rough plan is.

Proserpine - Colinsville - Scartwater Road - Pentland - The Lynd - Croydon - Normanton - Karumba - Burke & Wills - Julia Creek - Muttaburra - Clermont - Proserpine.

But we'll see how far we get. Looking to get back on the 29th March.

All back dirt roads with as little blacktop as possible Nothing hard core unless it rains on those Black Plains...

So if anyone wants to join us for the trip or part of it you're more than welcome.

Min fuel range 400km. Suitable for any bike including the big heavy ones, as long as you have knobbies. We're not planning on staying at any flash joints along the way. Maybe a shower in Karumba.. Just bush camping every night.
