Pottsy’s ride. June long weekend.

UntitledAfter a bit of confusion Pottsy picked his machine for the day and we hightailed it to Lawrence with time to play in some volcanic rock that made for a nice DR challenge along the way.

UntitledPicking up David at the pub, he started off by laying the boot into the Beemer, so I took that as a cue to join in. It was all in fun and I’m sure he had the best bike at times. Even if there where roadworks along the highway the BMW handled it fine.

PuddleThe nice sand sidetracks turned into fast link roads over to Old Lawrence Road and the start of the rain, just like last time. We stopped at Whiporie for fuel and hot food. David made a good choice and missed what would have been a fantastic challenge on the BMW and left the DRs to slither back to Lawrence on a brilliant bit of track…well, the bits I could make out through the rain looked pretty good, shining away on a gloomy arvo. It was a bit slippery but.

With the rain well and truly set in and visibility poor we hightailed it back on the road while Trev and Pottsy went for one last splash along the coastal ranges home.

Thanks Pottsy, for showing us some new trails.
