Still buzzing from yesterday, it was just super.
Could have ended before it even started though. A very good on again off again friend of mine advised me to bring a back up battery just in case my current one wasn’t up to the task simply because the bike hasn’t done much work over the last 6 months. “Nah she’ll be right, hasn’t been that long”. I fired the old girl up the night before, no problems and to me it sounded fine. I’m sure it will be right. Right? No. All dressed up with a dead 450 by side, luckily my friend from across the ditch says “here u go buddy I brought a battery for you!” Thanks Gypsy, your not actually that bad a bloke.
The ride itself was just sensational. Fast, flowing, no mucking about but still a hell of a lot of fun with plenty of laughs along the way and jam packed with some pretty quick boys. I’ve never done Blackwood before but it is right up there, do yourself a favour. Well done Dylan and thanks for putting in the time and effort as well as leading us around. It’s a ripper of a loop.
I had a few indiscretions that i would like to clarify. The inverted super man over the log was due to a “flame out” wouldn’t have had anything to do with my amazing clutch control. The cross rutted debacle that ended up with me pretending to be a fish was due to a front tyre with only 20% grip left. Nothing at all to do with lack of balance and general riding skill. There were a couple other incidents along the way and I could go on but trust me, they were all due to mechanical failure as well.
Not many pics as there just wasn’t time but if you stare at this picture and blink really fast you can imagine what it would have been like. Thanks everyone who came along, great to meet a few new people and thanks Coggs for letting Gypsy give your bike hell all day while he swept. I’ve never heard the sweep rider spend so much time on the limiter. That was so cool Gypsy when you were smoking up that rear tyre at the end of the ride. Spewing I couldn’t get my camera working.
