Had a ball

I had a great time, glad to meet new people and catch up with friends, the best part for me was getting led through glasshouse into places I hadn't been before by people who know that place like the back of there hand, thanks.

I had to take off at the end to watch my boy play footy, so I didn't get to shout the pie I owe Andy_P, bummer about him coming off too.

If only everyone rode 690's, the trails would be a better place

highlights

The last snail trails ride I went on was a very well organised ride about 5 weeks ago led by B1, sadly I came to a similar fate as Andy but I dare say at a much slower speed and no bone shatterings, I do however have a fully ruptured ACL. On that ride, that guys were great and Gary (don't know your username mate) was a great help in getting me home and looking after my bike until I could collect it... Anyway, preamble over, my highlights from yesterday:
- getting to do a ride that was stimulating but not too risky, got to do some nice bits of tracks I'd never seen before
- My knee held up just fine, I'm awaiting surgery through the public health system; in the meantime my newly purchased POD knee braces are doing the trick
- I love to be of any help I can, with a busted knee I'm glad I was still able to assist in getting Boo's bike upright in the sand. Also glad I could be part of PeterGG's plan to get Tinky back on the bike, what good is a trailer if you don't offer people a lift
- Being on the younger side of the average age, I can see that amongst you lot, I will have riding buddies for many years to come

Awesome job Strummer, thanks again!

Hah, I remember that one. Mick kept running out of fuel and I kept running out of track on the DL. I miss that old bus.
Was great to catch up with everyone and I only needed the toolkit of doom3 times all day. And one of those was on Boo's which probably should count twice.
Glad everyone had fun and I'll see you all for the next one.

Was yet another awesome ride!! You guys do a great at organizing and running rides, thanks taking time to do it. Also a huge thanks to Clacka and...... Troy 😝 and the others who were there to pick my bike up off me, everyday I get up and find another small bruise.

How is it Baric that you managed to capture nearly all the carnage?! Watching your video and at one point the was just bikes strewn all over the side of the track.

Looking forward to the next one.

Looks like you all had another awesome days ridding organized by Strummer, I was very disappointed that I missed out on this ride and an opportunity to catch up with some old mates from previous rides. Will have to make sure I'm available for next ride.
I did have a good ride today on the road bike at the Black Dog Charity Ride which I had previously committed too and there were a Massive 525 Bikes on the ride from Helensvale to Mt Alford just out of Boonah.
A lot of money raised for a great charity.
Just watched the Video Strummer posted, looks awesome, I must get the DRZ out and have a play in the Mud very soon , I think.
Hopefully catch up soon with you all for another Adventure in the Dirt.

Stay Safe.
Graham

Bumblebee says thanks

It was good to get out and meet a few more guys/girls. I think the day was run smoothly which surprised me with the amount of riders so congrats mate. Also like the video good to see you put bumblebee AssClowning a bit lol.

The wife has already but here request in for another bike after she saw all the girls on the vid. Just have to wait until she pops the kid out (May) and everything is settled.

Are you still intending on doing some more technical stuff after Easter. I'm happy to play recovery team to pull people out/up whatever if I can make it.
