Garry looks right at home with the Gnomes I thought.
There was a bit of an electrical storm here in Melbourne on Saturday night, was wondering if it extended up your way. By the looks of your pics it certainly did.
Nice weekend away by the looks of it!

First of all - many thanks to Tim for organizing this great weekend Plenty beer, lots of food, lots of laughs and lots of dusty miles - not necessarily in that order.
I had a ball!
SF already admitted to blowing a fuse and we all know that poor Pete got stuck in the barbed wire fence and ripped his pants.... (We cut him loose just before the thunder storm hit, hehe
but the rest of the gang didn't get away unscathed either: I lost control of my bladder and so did Fuzzy - copy-cat!
Gerry had a little man on his shoulder, telling him all sorts of things, but nobody believed him - until he got us proof. Sorry Gerry, shouldn't have doubted you!

...a KLR busting a speedo cable before the first km was run..
...then melted another indicator globe
...a thermal liner disintegrating and trying to shed it's fluffy bits...
...a Mansfield Bakery chicken-salad-mayo roll spilling its sloppy guts all over the sleeping bag and thongs in the topbox....

...and a PAIR!!! of KTMs behaving flawlessly, shedding no parts, destroying no rims or engines, nor popping any seals or valves
...it sure was one hell of a strange weekend


Instead, Goodie found some classy, new gear along the way...




The grin is just as wide inside that skid-lid...











Lunchstop at the new shelter at Sugarloaf Saddle in the Cathedrals







Some animated conversations...









...and then into the Strathbogies under blue skies and sunshine, hooray!!









Come Sunday and things started to turn sour...the shitstorm brewing over Jamieson/ Delatite









...so we grabbed some smelly, dead fish in Buxton on the way home.
(and where there's smelly, dead fish...there some sunshine around again )






Thanks for yet another good ride, the laughs, the excellent pizza, the coldies waiting at the unit, the pitch-black High Country Stout...and somehow arranging to tear the arse outta my pants. Well played, gang!!
