  1. As Bruce said, there were 5 of us that headed off on Saturday morning. There were 4 legs of about 90 km each. We only had 1 stop on leg one that was long enough to take our helmets off and visit Milmed Rock. This leg saw 5 emu’s pop out onto the track and challenge me to a race. The trick is not to fall for it, as they do throw a mean roost, and their cornering ability far exceeds mine. Towards the end of this leg FarmerBrown and KTMBruce swap bikes for a while. Bruce liked the Beta that much, I was concerned that FarmerBrown may not get it back. We have a quick refuel, and a bite to eat from our support vehicle. On Leg 2 I got distracted and missed a turn, so wasted 10 mins while we doubled back. Sorry about that. I had 2 Emu’s pop out on the track this time for a run. Towards the end of this leg we came across a lone rider out there doing his thing. We finished this leg about 11:30 and had lunch, even though Bruce thought that it was far too early for lunch. The temperature was starting to heat up now. J-Man also pointed out that we didn’t have a stop on that leg. Not sure if this was just an observation, or whether he was hinting at something. We had been making good time, so after about 30mins we headed off for leg 3. I think we had 2 or 3 stops on this leg. In one spot there was about 25-30 Emu’s in the corner of the paddock, and I was hoping that none got through onto our side, so I stopped a few hundred metres along to make sure we still had everybody. Still making good time with minimal breaks, we made our last refuel in the small amount of shade that we could find. Then it was a quick stop at the Snow Drift. Eagle-eyed observers will notice that it technically isn’t snow, but hey, it wasn’t me that named it that. At about the 320km mark, rumour has it that J-Man was issuing a surprise last minute challenge to Bruce out on the track. So at about 4:30 we rolled in, which was about 9hrs after we started. So it was a few cold drinks, a hot shower, and then a trip into the Royal Hotel in Rainbow for a counter-meal. Bruce tipped half his 1st drink over on the tablecloth, and then tried to blame it on the uneven join in the tables, but we weren’t buying that for a minute. Thanks to J-Man, Bruce, FarmerBrown and BearMX for coming along. The group flowed well, with no off’s that I know of, and no bike problems. Thank to Arthur for doing fuel-support. Thanks also to Tony, who couldn’t make it due to prior commitments, but was still kind enough to drop off his tea/coffee making facilities for us to use.

  14. Just a thought for anyone going on BruceKTMGuy's upcoming Desert Ride or J-Man's upcoming Licola to Dargo ride, these have come in quite handy previously. They can help save the danger of riding back into oncoming traffic, or burning up an extra 10-20km of fuel which can make things borderline on these sorts of rides, by getting a message to the lead or anyone else when there is a delay and not knowing what for.
