It wasn't quite Mirboo, mate....only top-shelves around this Sunday
As for the mentioned "attractions"...it's just stumping sometimes what a day can hold in store.

Did I use the words "tootle" and "no knobbies" or something
Sure wished we'd had 'em, at times :-)

Any brand, any colour....650 THUMPERS!

One even a Tripod!
Hey, Jim





Some neat and very scenic single-lane tar through the deserted Sunday-morning foothills, a steep and skittish climb up the Kinglake Ridge and back onto the gravel near Hazeldene. The sun's with us, but last night's rain didn't reach those parts...it's dry, marbly and the arse-end wants to go walkabouts constantly.
There's also a shyteload of fresh 3/4" gravel around...





The Tripod needing some "persuasion" to make it around that cresting lefthander...






Magic day out...





Some...attempted... descent into Reedy Creek via the Thompson Spur prompts a bail-out and backtrack.
Holy shit!!...this thing is STEEEEP, LOOSE and ROUGH!
Jim on the retreat....






No, Willo...DEFINITELY NOT ST-friendly!








It sure is bloody steep








Last of the pack...Lil' Husky







Hmmm....THAT wasn't on the cards, really









I think, on the Dishrack I woulda shit myself even turning the bloody thing around....never mind riding it out on a Tourance rear hoop
