what a fabulous day out there today..perfect !
Before leaving home(bendigo)it was raining so i did something i never do, put all my gear on(except boots) before leaving home, including spray jacket and pants...no way i'm getting changed in the rain. It rained all the way to the meet spot but lucky for us it stopped just before we took off which was a while because we all had to admire fabs new bike with one kay on the clock. When fab figured we'd oohed and aahed enough we were off.
Some people may have thought i was a bit unkind in the organise rides post where i bet fab would fall off at the first creek, well, i was wrong...he fell off BEFORE the first creek ! no kidding, we are 10(yes, ten) metres into the first track. For some crazy reason fab wants to go bush to do a u turn, next thing i know him and the bike are down..to be fair he is on a brand new bike and was trying to clear a three inch stick.
Rest of the ride went well but geez those rocks are slippy when wet. HT put several complaints in about fab polishing rocks with his rear tyre therefore making it harder for the next rider. I listened sympathetically, pretending to care, then rode off thinking the poor old fart's lost his marbles. MRKTM likes twisting the throttle and managed to make it up scorpio rooster track, well down.
thanks all for a great day out.
