Well itís been one of the best days Iíve had, thanks for a great ride Pounce & lads was absolutely awesome on the bikes with a beer afterwards, then to top it off I came hm & the little man washed & serviced my bike with air cleaner all done & the missus cooked a massive bowl of fresh chilly mussels & garlic bread with a bottle of wine & itís only 5.30 :)) the only downer was following that slow coach Jinxy today.

Ps How many meters you get today Hootie :)))

It's a gin & tonic/tramadol kinda afternoon...

That was fun but hard work.

Whoops are like KFC; you have to do it once a year to remind yourself why you hate it.

Thanks guys for a great ride, Jacko the ever present sweep, Tommy for leading us home & al the others in the middle.

Ride Name: Fill it up then throw it Down Ride
Riders: Tommy, pounce, Jed, Macca, Jnr, Des, MickKal, Jacko
ROTD: Pounce
SOTD: Des

With all this global warming shit happening these days when it eventually rains it would be a crime not to call a ride, so after a week of solid rain the plan was to meet at the lakes at 8:00 Saturday to have some fun in the mud. We had 6 riders plus 2 late entries from Jed and Pounce which made 8. We hadnít done a ride out east for a couple of years so we drove out to the eastern boundary to the parking spot and then hit some tracks and creek runs expecting the worst. Turns out it wasnít that sloppy at all and it was pretty much perfect conditions. The first creek run was awesome and then after about 30klms we stopped so all the two strokes could fill up and get rid of the fuel out of their backpacks.
Maccaís mate Des topped up his 300 then walked away but unfortunately forgot to put his fuel cap back on, but with the moist ground his side stand collapsed and the bike fell over (SOTD) and started to spill fuel out everywhere. Everybody just stood there and watched in horror but luckily Jed who was the closest Crusty to the disaster was straight onto it, he quickly drained the contents of his vape tank, drank the rest of his Iced Coffee and then quickly strolled over and picked the bike up while only managing to lose 5 or 6 litres. Crisis averted.
All good so then we hit the usual central single tracks that I never get tired of riding because it really doesnít get any better, then we got onto some other less familiar tracks and my lazy BaseCamp skills started to become a bit of a problem and Pounce had to bail me out a few times with directions, hence ROTD.
Then we headed home and did some sandy single to finish off and ended up with 103klms on the clock. Beers and a chat, perfect day out.

6 months is too long off the trails, I feel every ache.

Thanks Mick for calling the ride, spur of the 8pm bourbon moment made me pack the bike & I don't regret it.
Such a good ride & great people. It's always good to meet new blokes (that just happen to be better riders than me, which by standards isn't a great feat)
The 2 hour drive home... should have stopped for a coffee.

See y'all tomorrow

Some pics in gallery.

Oil condition after 100 klm's with new top end!

Perth most probably had just as much rain as what we did down this way. Water everywhere, looks like itís back to taking a couple of hours to wash the mud off the bike after a ride :)
For those riding on the weekend have a good one.

Oh great, Marty is going to show off & put us all to shame again... ;-)

Mick Kal, just picked the bike up. The piston had 2/5ths of bugger all wear only on the sides of it. It would have gone on a lot longer. The other bits like valves, shims etc were the bits needing attention.
I'm guessing I just don't ride anywhere near hard enough so when it comes to selling anything ever again I can legit use "only ridden slowly on Sundays by an old man"
