Wait till you see the footage from 6 or 7 different angles as he did a superman dive off of the KLR into the Condamine River on one of the crossings. He was the cleanest rider at the Urbenville Hotel.

Well it was rather hot and dusty but the good news is no-one had any real dramas and overall I think most people enjoyed the day.

Thanks for being such a great crew to ride with. Here is some of the action......

Father and daughter at one of the river crossings.



Here is some of the first group chilling at Tooloom Falls.



Some of the 50 bikes parked in front of the Urbenville Pub.



Gordon paid a fair chunk for this poster of Ben Grabham to support him on his 2013 Dakar Attack. That's Grabbo on the left. Good on you Gordon for your support.



Cheers - Ron

Thanks to Grant & Rosie and all the support guys (especially the sweeps) for organising and running this event. I've had a great day today and really enjoyed meeting a whole bunch of very wonderful people and skilled riders.

Special thanks to Alison for the riding tip for when crossing the rivers, I truly believe that's the one tip that got me through all the other water crossings.... THAT I DID NOT RECORD! GRRRRRR! . That's right folks, the only creek crossing I got on camera was the one I stacked on and to top it off I forgot to stop recording after getting out of the creek busting for piss, so yeah, recorded that as well.

Thanks also for the boys from the Northside for meeting up damn early and riding a convoy down to Boonah was great to do it as a team and thanks to fatbloke for not getting a flat.

Here are a couple of pics to add to the collection, oh and it will be at my discretion when I upload the "Dont Do What Jonny Don't Does - Water Crossing Edition" video











Oh and did I forget to mention, even though I stuffed up the first water crossing, I did not win the "Noob" award for this ride, that special privilege I believe goes to Mawscode for dropping his nice new KTM 990 at a sealed intersection at Boonah only moments after stating how proud he was that he's never dropped it. Congratulations sir


Well done all it was a great day, filled with many wonderful memories, hope to see you all again soon.

Wasca.

I thinks it's important to always check track and road surface conditions very closely for all other fellow riders, and yes that particular piece of bitumen was nice and hard
