Ok after a lot of effort & some favours used I知 going to get some Black polo shirts done & printed with the Crusty痴 logo ( with the Never too old to Roost) on one side of the chest just nice & neat to wear around & nothing to loud, I値l be using the orange logo as probably taking orders with sizes & colours will get to hard but I知 going to talk to the printer this week & if it痴 easy I値l sort that out, I値l also maybe ask for Hoodies/stubby holders but again only if easy, so later I値l have prices etc soon if enough interest is shown 👍 I値l also have some pictures of the design & look later to show.

Bunga posted a maybe ride due to the Covid lock down and all the dirty grubs running around in Perth. On Friday afternoon Mark McClown gave the Crusty Boys permission to ride on Saturday and the weather gods decided to deliver us perfect riding conditions again, that's 2 in a row.
We met at Sawyers Tavern at 0900 and after Bunga destroyed the local footy clubs public toilet Jack informed us he had a few tracks in mind that could lead us to the oldest inland town in Western Australia, York. Sounded good to me! Straight off the bat we jumped on to some flowing forest gravel runs and singles, packed down from a bit of rain and no dust. We meandered our way through Gorrie and snaked our way to the Helena River encountering some hard packed sandy sections with a few puddles & rocks with the roar of Bugas sprint car motor waking up the local fauna. A few jumping dogs said hello to Jack out front as the roos were enjoying a bounce on a perfect morning as well. We pushed on through the Lakes area on a variety of terrain with Jack setting a good pace across Talbots and eventually crossing the Great Southern Hwy. We slipped around the north east end of York, crop gazing and looping past the local olive oil company and dropped into town through the back door. A quick beer and burger at the Castle Hotel on the main drag and then back on the bikes for the return journey, which panned out just as good as the mornings ride. Found our way back to the Sawyers Tav for a quick absoluter, owed the boys a beer while they waited for me to cable tie my rear fender back on!
Thanks fellas for a great day. Oh yeah, ROTD goes to Jack for putting together the Freedom Ride! OK gotta go and get my jab now.

The Feedom Ride

Jack, Slates, Bunga

A late call for a big bike ride and 3 turned up at Sawyers Tavern for cool 9 am start. Jack lead the ride with me and Slates switching 2nd and 3rd positions throughout the day. We headed out to York for a leisurely ride with only the one drama with Slates rear taillight assembly deciding to seperate but with a bit of bush mechanics we got going again until the cable tights decided to let go. This was then time for me to carry the tail end in my back pack to finish the ride. Great pub lunch and a beer to wash it down and then it was back on the bikes to head home.
No accidents but a bit slippery with plenty of puddles and rutted out tracks to keep us all on our toes. A great combination of forest and farm roads with a bit of black top to mix it up.
Me and Jack swapped bikes for a very short spin, I felt like his 701 was a skinny two stroke after getting off my 790.
Unfortunately my rear suspension has failed again, first ride after the rebuild. Oh well hopefully Sander can sort it out on Thursday for me as I知 down Bunbury way for a quick overnight trip to Margaret River.
Once again a great bunch of lads to be involved with thanks Jack for an awesome lead and Slates for sharing the cornerman.
Crustys for ever.

Good call from Bunga to get out post LockDown and clear the head of cobwebs. Judging from the number of dirt bikes, 4wd痴 and wood choppers out in the bush, we all needed to taste freedom again.

Sawyers to York, was a casual 200km loop of twin tracks in perfect conditions. Once in York we treated ourselves to beers, burgers, coffee and ice cream - enjoy it when you can !

Like Slates said is there ever a shit ride with the CQ痴 definitely not.

Out of Lockdown - XRCass, Dutchy450
Dutchy rang me fri evening looking for a post covid lockdown ride sat morn. The bike was good to go from prev weekend so no brainer there. Posted it up as an easy ride on CQ but no takers. Lazy 9am start drifted out to nearly 10am by the time we left to get fuel - then went back home again to find face masks so that we would be allowed in to the servo to pay for the fuel! Acid Gloves didn't have a mask (and he's an anti-vaxxer who didn't want to be near Dutchy and me as we have both had our shots) so he buggered off home. Most times riding at the pines are fast flowing sand and a bit of thru-the-forest ducking and dodging trees but I've been asked a few times about single trail so went looking for a few tighter sections. Inver knows these singles better then me but I still found a few and linked them into the main loop I usually do - worked out ok. Furthest point was only about 35kms from Quinns so the bikes with coke can sized fuel tanks can even do a loop without needing to beg for fuel. Looks like a solid week of rain coming up. Wet Sand is Good Sand!

The only photo I took is of Dutchy cleaning the bikes. So I included it.

I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens over the next couple of days but was thinking either Sawyers or the Lakes servo to Jarrahdale
