perfect weather, great company (with possible exception of that canadian bloke ) and good tracks. big thanks to the various guys who volunteered to sweep ride.

met up with strummer's dirt riding mob, it was a tense stand off for a moment... we looked at them and thought what a scruffy uncultured dirty mob. they looked at us and thought latte-sipping limp wristed dirt road travellers. but then the dirt brotherhood took over and all was fine.

up through mt mee, into glasshouse then wamuran bakery for lunch. everyone was happy to move it up a notch and gordon took us up a slippery track on daguilar range. then into mt mee and had a blast down a break and jacky creek rd.

hats off to terry. he reckons this was his first time dirt riding but many of us had our doubts, especially watching him jump the new DRZ at the end of the day! although apparently he had a "moment" on the jumps he might choose to share.

thanks to two riders, one shouted me lunch and the other a tank of fuel! certainly not expected but much appreciated....

Carnage?



Great to catch up with you chaps, albeit briefly, at the Gantry.

Grass is always greener I guess, but I couldn't help thinkin I'd have loved to have a DR and join you guys!

I'll post some video of your grand arrival later.

Pritch, the DBW guys were impressed with my tales of old DR650's being ridden up vertical rock faces in Mt Mee.
Your legend precedes you Sir!!

Right, that's it.... I'm not organising any more rides until someone buys me lunch and a tank full of fuel!

Ok.. So we are riding down that track with all the whoops on Mt Mee and I'm getting a tad over confident. I hit one going way too fast and I get all out of shape. I land pretty hard and bottom out the springs (my portly physique nothing to do with it!) and on the rebound find myself hanging off the back. It was about this time the whiskey throttle kicks in and I start heading towards the big rock wall on the side of the track doing my first ever wheelstand. I had the thought that you all have likely thunk before - that I was a split second from having a huge stack. I can't really explain what happened next (probably because I had my eyes closed :eek: ) but the front wheel came down, the bike straightened up, and I stayed on. The drz remains scratch free!

DR to WR

Super ride today with new and old friends. Thanks again Barry for your time and patience. Stu the WR now allows me to ride 100% of the terrain we choose to ride. The hardest 10% now much easier and safer for me on a lighter bike. The easiest 10% (fast bitumen) not as enjoyable as the DR of course. Horses for courses! Despite more horsepower and suspension Barry still pulling away!! Well he is a lot younger, my only defense. Come on Strummer! Time for a DR!

looks like the dirt bike mob had a great time too! that bollard track sure was slippery... there was a suggestion for our crew to try it but looks like the motherships would have been going down left right and centre.

is it just me or does that sound vaguely pornographic?

gordon found us a nice slippery bit, it was at the 3 min mark in the vid. possibly slippery enough for you to enjoy.

Gordon loves that slippery bit, although I don't think Rosie appreciated him taking her in there when she was on the tiger a couple of weeks ago

Looks like a great ride you guys had.

That was a good challenge riding through that bit the other week, I actually did it twice while going back to check on you and Rosie. Then on the way back copped a full mud roost from Rosie as she was crawling here way out of there.
