Thanks for the ride today Mick, thanks Tommy for sweep duties and everyone else for joining in. I want to be a teenager again and dust should be outlawed.

An Enduro ride is on for this Saturday. Meet at the rear of Sawyers Valley tavern, then leave at 8:00 to drive to parking spot. Bring fuel for around 85klm, there will be lots of single, a few hills and maybe a bit of exploring to map out some new singles. Enduro Bikes only. Forecast is rain on Friday so fingers crossed.

Flynn Rd single ride.

I wanted to try out the new to me ktm350, so after finally getting some rain I put the call out for a mid-week ride but only got one taker which was Jason. This ended working out good because we took our time around our usual tracks and then managed to find about 5 new single tracks, and some more to map out at a later date. 65klms all up in perfect conditions.

Laos ride 2024: husq mike JNR Ash and Pounce.
The epic started on the 6th Jan and ended on 30 Jan.
Picked up the bikes from Fuark and then headed North.First few days up near a reservoir on a gnarly dusty track I remember from before.From then on, it was full on till we arrived at the 7km tunnel.it was a challenge just to ride the bikes to the staging point, then a bigger challenge actually getting the bikes into the canoe. Pretty hairy motoring as the hand guards were catching the water and throwing it into the canoe. A bit of bailing needed. From then on it became a myriad of dirt tracks, greasy then dusty and more greasy and more dusty. One bit comes to mind where we rode 55ks to a river with a causeway across to a village.JNR bravely tried to ride across and drowned his bike.Next option was to put the bikes on a skinny canoe.We all thought very carefully about this and unanimously agreed NO WAY.Next option was to ride each the bike across supported by the other 3 guys.When we saw the tuk tuk tractor going across with its flywheel hitting water well over our seat height,it was decided to ride back 55ks which was a smart move.
We managed to get to the Vietnamese and Burmese borders then started to wind back southerly. Some very good footage on us all having a ball in the slippery stuff. All of us either fell or had close calls.Ash managed to do one of my tricks from years ago and lost it over the edge of a chasm with nothing but creepers to hold him up. A bit of teamwork and on we went. JNR and myself were a bit poorly earlier on but not bad enough to have a lay day.
Near our Northerly point we split up, with Pounce heading across to Thailand and the 3 of us made our way South to Luang Prabang.A bit of fun, some very late nights and chill time. Then still heading South got to Vang Vien.More party time .Tubing, volleyball and zip lining. Met some great tourists - French Swiss and German. Last stage was a run into Vientiane .Spoilt cos the Chinese would not let our bikes onto the new motorway. Spent last few days doing not much except drinking. JNR and I saw the sun come up one morning at a night club. As I mentioned all became a bit of a blurr. The photos/videos on facebook is the best way to get the idea.it was a long haul of 3440ks.

Hi Guys been awhile so hope all is going well for everyone. Still working up in Tom Price but doing the FIFO thing now which means i get to ride most weekends. Been doing it since October so have been back riding down south checking out all the old riding areas and on a new 2023 Xc 300 Some tracks have been hammered others haven't seen a bike for ages and some have disappeared being taken over by the bush.
So while Im use to riding in the heat i know most of you will be waiting till it cools down and rains. So hopefully when that happens we can organised a camp out at either Woky or Kirup campsite and all catch up for shits and giggles and spend some time out on the bikes.
But if your real keen for a ride down south let me know and can organised a day ride when im back at home which is every second weekend. Back home this weekend and heading out on Sunday. Spot to be confirmed
My new number is 0407 477 621.
Cheers and hope to catch up soon

I could do Saturday Tommy. Its going to be 35 and my ride fitness is zero so maybe something not too taxing that includes a stop for a cold beer somewhere might be nice?
