Karen and Dave Ramsay hit Narrabri

  The Narrabri ride organised by Chris Laan and meeting up with the Newcastle riders was a terrific weekend. Dave and I took the tar up the mountain after work – about 350km and out to Uralla where we met up with Boz, Chris, Maso and Muzz. Arriving well after dark at the top pub, Chris soon found out it wasn’t a good idea to tap his watch at me when I’ve been riding the…

Marty H’s weekend ride

No pics and not really a ride report ether except to say a big thanks to Phil and Trev who have cleared a 170km loop of mostly singletrack and put on a great ride. Fast crew: Doc, Schoie, Nick and Mick, plus a poor guy on a WR who was out of his depth and melted down out the back of The Horseshoe. After a while we got him up the hill and pointed him…

Blog: May 26. No riding for me.

Another weekend’s done and I’ve not been riding. I had a few opportunities, but things didn’t quite settle in my favour. Up until about Wednesday I was committed to be in two places at the same time for the whole weekend, and I had a third option for the taking. If I could figure out a way to be in two places at once, why not three? The first was a riding school at Dargle,…

Poker run: June 21.

Gav Gill was just on the phone saying it was hard to find any details on the Poker Run. Here we go: When: JUNE 21. 8.30am Where: Macca’s, south Coffs Um… That’s it, really. No entry fees, no paperwork or nonsense. I have some goofy little prizes, but nothing to get excited about. After the ride Craig ‘Onesie’ Wilson is offering a firepit and barbeque at his joint. That should rage, and everyone can tell…

Blog: May 19. Home early.

Morning all! I’m in a good mood…for now. I’ll be as cranky as a 990 owner with a blocked tea-bag filter by about 10.00am, probably. I’ve been trailling my boss and a couple of his mates through the start of the APC Rally. I drove down to Wisemans Ferry – which turned out to be a bit of an adventure in itslef, becuase I got lost on the way – found the office KLR waiting,…

Blog: May 12. The Dominator is in the shed

Hey everyone! I’m in a good mood this arvo. I’ve just had one of those rare weekends with no work. None. Not even answering e-mails. I shut down the work computer on Friday arvo and it’s still sitting there closed. In a weird twist, I didn’t go riding on this free weekend. I caught up on a heap of things that have been postponed because of work. First up was my little KH100 bucket racer….

7 May, 2014: Poker Run update from Pottsy

So at the weekend I ran the northern loop for the Poker Run , and it’s going to be a cracker. Something for everyone. It is going to be a bit more technical than the southern loop, but nothing like Marty’s loop of doom! My car can still drive it in two-wheel drive, and the route goes past a few old mining tunnels, so those so inclined can bring a torch to explore. There’s one…

Craig Wilson’s Moonan Flat ride

I got an invite for a mid week Adventure ride with Mean Dean and Gibbo. The idea was simple, take Marty H’s new Dualsport Australia disc and ride the Moonan flat loop. Now many of us have purchased these discs off Marty H but I am not sure how many of us have actually gone out and used it. We started off at Gibbo’s bar after work and went about loading the data from the…

Blog: May 5. Been riding the desk

Is it frigging cold, or WHAT? It’s not that bad I suppose, but after a nice Summer and a very mild Autumn, these last couple of days have been a bit of a shock. It’s time to start thinking about preparing for some cold riding. D’oh. I hate being cold. I’ve been hammered by work this week, so haven’t been on a bike at all. There was a pony express scheduled at Uralla for today…
