Hey brazuka, half of that trip is on beaches. This time of year they will be impassible. As for the rest of the trip there is lots of soft sandy woops. But it can be done.

Hi gents, I just saw your JB500 video on youtube when searching for a ride up to Jurien Bay. Do any of you have some guidance as to where to start on the sand? Or any track advice? Cheers

i was wondering how you got on. i drained my tank this morning to see how much was left and surprisingly it was over a litre. i knew we were a long way out earlier and had been in fuel conservation mode for the last half of the ride.

Adversity Makes Memories:

Players: JNR, Pass, Alan & Adam, Kiwi Chris, Jacko, Issac, Tommy, Husq Mike, Ross, Steve, Eddy, Jack

Adversity makes memories, that’s how yesterday panned out for some of us. Start of the ride headcount was Lucky 13, so we tried to asked another rider to join in, but he was just waiting for his mates.

Straight into the single track to warm up, which was a shock to some as arm pump set in immediately. Logs were super slipper as the wood turned into mossy slime from weeks of constant rain, puddles were deep and creeks flowed fast – still the rain held off and riding was mint !

Husq mike DNF first with an off and a broken clutch reservoir, Eddy continued to crash at every turn but still managed to laugh his gumbyness off, Issac took a hard slide on green mud but dug deep and carried on whilst the rest of us had our usual pucker up moments here, there and everywhere.

JNR set a cracking pace of following the red line on his GPS, which then crossed another red line loop taking us out to the east side of the Lakes, that wouldn’t have been an issue if we weren’t already 90km into the ride.

Alarm bells started to ring in our heads, quick regroup and a decision was made to head out to Yarra Rd and make further plans there. Once on Yarra rd my bike was lowest on fuel so we headed east towards “The Lakes“ seeking phone reception to call a friend.

Now Adversity started to make Memoires for us.

JNR ran out of fuel and signaled to us to continue riding up the road. Jacko, Chris and Isaac stayed with him to and the rest of us rode on. Finally reception was found, phone call made to a friend with no success and an Adventure bike rider waved down and asked to help us. Only assistance he could offer was a pillion ride on the back of his KTM 1190 to Sawyers Pub to pick up the ute, buy fuel and return to fill the bikes up.

+1 hour later and 80km return trip, 20 liters were dropped off to 7 thirsty bikes and then the group was back on the track to return to Sawyers Pub where JNR and Chris were already quenching their thirst.

How did they get there and what happened ? I’ll let JNR tell his story, it wasn’t straight forward.

Great day out on the bikes and good memories have been made. I think it ended up being a 140km ride, not 100% sure as I was the recovery fuel vehicle and DNF the ride.

Good while it lasted.
Thanks for the top park spot JNR.The bin chicken picnic ground!
Shit on my boots, uggies and socks.Could smell it all the way home.

Apart from that ,the tracks were mostly new for me.Top single trail stuff, enjoyed the ride.
Unfortunately,just as I felt good and warmed up ready to party,I made the usual HM mistake of riding too close behind and had to head bush instead of careering into the soul in front.
The outlet bush of the clutch master cylinder just snapped off.I persisted for a while,but it is hard work and not knowing what surprises JNR had in the tracks ahead,decided to play it safe and bail.
Hope you all had a longer ride than my 37ks.

Jack was pretty close with replacement estimate.It so happened that Mandurah ktm head one in stock.No one has ever broken one.

Just some advance notice.
One of our members will be shortly arriving at 300 rides with the club.A remarkable achievement Tommy.
To celebrate this, a few have got together and suggested a camp over in Sandalwood Rd Brunswick.
The date proposed is weekend of 20th August.It won't be exactly the 300th ride,but fitting in with a few other agendas.
it has not been decided whether to have two rides Sat and small one Sunday.To be discussed.
Dazza will most likely put up his hand to lead at least one of the rides.
The plan would be to arrive Fri night or Sat morning.
Depending on weather, you can camp or bunk up in shed.
Hot shower and toilet is the bonus over our normal camp out.

No need to bring firewood (Bunga).

Watch this space for further updates.

Have conned Jacko to come down in a week or so to plan a loop.Any retirees or others wanting a ride let me know.It will be during week days.
