Good to see that rides are still happening up Perth way. Down this way we have been riding heaps. I think this is the most riding of done over a summer. Myself Martyn and Pete heading out most weekend. We have been lucky enough to have cool mornings. Dust obviously is still an issue but with a max of 4 riders it isnít to bad and getting on the bikes by 6-6:30 and back at the cars by 10:00 before itís too hot.

Awhile ago I said that Iíd be heading down to Bremer Bay for the March long weekend, pretty sure that no other Crustie planed on coming along which is all good as I have had to cancel. I believe that one of the local riders is still doing something but a bit more low keyed if anyone is still keen

Hopefully not to long we can start calling rides again at Woky and Nannup
Good to see Pounce and Tommy have a good time
Cheers

Many thanks for putting on a great ride Saturday MickKal, it was great to be back out there with a great bunch of die hards. The dust was all part of it, it certainly made the beers go down well. Many thanks to Hazi & JNR for sharing your beers at the end of the ride, I'll be sure to bring along extras for the needy next time. Cheers Tiger for sweeping all day, a great time had by all.
Cheers, KTMike.

Lol Gray, No chopper required ride.

Riders Ė MickKal, Tiger, Jnr, Hazi, Jacko, KTMMike
ROTD Ė Jnr
SOTD Ė No offs that were witnessed
6 Summer Time Diehards turned up at the Rock Inn for an Adventure ride to Lol Gray and back. The first noticeable thing was that Jnr showed up for this adventure ride earlier than expected and looking rested and like he had just finished a coffee. It was also noted that his rear knobby was in remarkable condition if it had indeed just done 50klm of bitumen to arrive at the start of this adventure ride. Now that Jnr was there the noise level increased quite a bit and so the nice lady who now lives at the Rock Inn came out and told us that we were on private property and should leave. So, the Rock Inn is now a house and is going to be fenced off in the future. Anyway, we moved across the road to keep her happy, but we are going to need a new parking spot from now on. Maybe the BP?
Tiger volunteered for sweep and we headed out on the usual tracks, had a quick break at Jinxys tree which is now almost bark less, then went to Boyagin Rock had another stop and sweated our asses off in the heat. Then onto LoL Gray which was a real treat to ride thru, unused flat tracks and weirdly skinny trees everywhere. Then we went to wandering for fuel and lunch in the tavern, one of the locals said it was 41 degrees and there was no reason to doubt him. I drank 4 litres of water, 1 pint of beer and 1 coke during the ride. The ride home was along some interesting tracks further south that included a couple of tracks that werenít actually there anymore and so everyone had some log hopping practice. Anyway, we all made it back in one piece totally shagged and thirsty, I forgot to pack any beer and so JNR gets the ROTD nomination for being the main supplier of the much-needed beer for everyone.

Thanks for leading a little loop of 344 kms yesterday MickKal.

We had a mixture of everything. Started off cool and then was hotter than hell in Wandering - but the beers were cold and tasted like nectar from the gods.

We visited Jinxy's tree - and thankfully nobody was Jinxy-ed on this ride.

Let's make this a comeback ride for Jinxy.

Good to get a day out on the bike in Feb...

See you all at the the rock inn for a 7:00 take off, cross fingers we might even get a drop of rain. GPX files for the ride have been sent, bring a beer just in case the rock is closed.

Any Summer Diehards out there who want to go for ADV ride this coming Saturday (Tommy and Pounce excluded), the plan is to ride very very carefully and have another crack at the LoL Gray ride that Jinxy DNFed on. Distance is 357klm with a bit of open stuff in the middle, fuel at wandering or Bannister so a range of 250klm is needed. I haven't been on the bike since 7th of December so keen as. Bunga this is a good chance to scratch that new 790.

I rode my new 790 R over to WRRosses house for him to take a look at and take for a spin around the street. I wouldnít mind being a fly on the wall around his dinning room tonight to hear the discussion ha ha.
