Yeah that ride was like no other I have been on.

No real idea...but sounds somewhat familiar.
Started off in Stratford or thereabouts....Goodie's battery conked out and we left the bike around the back of the maintenance shed of the caravan park... went home, got a spare batt and some other stuff to make sure, then met up again.

Yeah, that sounds right...must've been a long Weekend of some sort.
Danny still around?

Yeah, that is right! Danny got so cold that he ended up wearing Pete's jumper over the top of his jacket.
And you, Stewy, left bits and pieces behind everywhere. A tyre needed to be replaced and you always wanted to go back and collect the old one later, your jumper/jacket at the pub in Moyhu... which couldn't be retrieved in the morning as the pub was still closed by the time we left and there was something else, but can't remember right now.

Great ride it was.....

Good to hear about Danny.

Default 2008...Beef'n Reef #2

Another Cup Weekend (November), might as well make a week of it.

Only Nev (on the Buell Uly now).... Jo on the new BM650GS twin just after an offroad-course... Marty on the "Toothy"-Strom and the 2 WTFs with Goodie and I signed in for this one.

Things got a bit dusty sometimes




Busted belt on the Buell in the bush around Tolmie




Rode the Whitfield-Lake Buffalo Rd, Trappers across to Mitta Mitta and enjoyed the hospitality, bumfluff included





Crunchy mornings before hitting the Namadgi National Park and some old Apollo13 tracking stations in the ACT






Captains Flat area...looking towards the coast




Bermagui...Tathra and cutting back via some choice tracks to Jindabyne





The Bonang, The Barry Way, Mc Killops and the Dargo High Plains....



....whoohoo, what a cracker of a week!!






C'mon....go and have a look at the whole lot!!
