Blog: December 26. Ate too much again.

It’s Christmas Day and windy as buggery. That doesn’t matter to me because I’ve eaten so much I doubt I’ll be able to move for several days at least. Meanwhile, back in the real, non-Christmas-gluttony world, Longest Day has been and gone, and I’m still peeved at having missed it. For the first time in 11 years I had to stay at my desk and work (nothing to do with bikes. Different work). The good…

Blog: December 19. Longest Day. Who’s in?

I don’t know if I’m all that keen on…

Dave and Karen Ramsay’s Wattle Flats ride report

Wattle Flats done and DUSTED for another year. No mud until late Sunday arvo for some.  Awesome effort from Craig Wilson and the wonderful crew from the Coffs 4×4 Club. We ate well, drank cold beverages and had a top night discussing bikes and recent adventures around a ripper fire topped off by Wilbers Damper. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we had $102 profit after costs on the tucker and drinks, which Craig has asked me…
