  1. "show us your belly button" tour of greendale.

    Sorry Marko I had to bail early with problems with my bike, I thought it was better to go back and allowed the group to continue without delaying the ride. Hopefully be good to go on the next Greendale ride. H.T.
  2. Medical Emergency

    It could be 270 degrees it depends on which way you wind it up. H.T.

  5. Cobaw with Cujo and HT

    Thanks for the day Fab I had a great day with cool conditions and I reckon we had the forest to ourselves. A few shots and happy faces. H.T.
  6. Wombat winter wonderland

    Just a few shots of the day, was very slick in places today. I followed Fab down a muddy gully only to see him gathering speed and eventually going over the bars then sliding into the muddy hole at the bottom. He looked like a competitor from Cool Runnings he picked himself up with the only damage done was his gps mount. He later had another lay down but this time it was clear water some may think he fell off but he was only washing off the mud from the previous incident. Thanks to all that came with a few dropping out along the way, thanks to Peter v and sticks for pulling me up that little pinch. Good day out with a tidy group of blokes. H.T
  7. Spring Hill - the rivalry ride

    Thanks Marko for taking such a large group out at Springhill. There were some very quick riders out there duelling in the bush, if and when there were quicker riders I pulled over trying not to hold anybody up. This is where the corner man system works really well as I can usually get over under or through most obstacles but haven’t the speed. I never saw the tail all day I just circled within the group. Hope I didn’t hold anybody up. I decided to pull the pin at the rest halt after Sink splashed me in one of his overtaking manoeuvres, he really is a twot so I went home. H.T.
  8. Chewton in the rain(well, some rain)

    I was thinking of being a late starter and have a lie down in a spoon drain and just wait for you to pass. Wasn"t sure if you would ring road it back that way. Should make the next one. H.T.

  12. chewton downs another good man

    Steve thanks for organising another Chewton ride, you just seem to keep adding to what’s already a great day out. Pity we had an injury but that sometimes happens. Received a text late last night to say he had a dislocated shoulder and was staying in Bendigo hospital overnight but all seems good at the moment. He wanted to thank everyone on the ride with everybody chipping in to get both rider and bike safely out of the bush. The Ambo’s needed a little encouraging to get to where we needed help but they did a fantastic job. I had a reasonable off when three of us decided to head back to pick up cars, we rode past a camp just off the side of a fire trail to the right. I looked at the site and then looked in front of me and seen that I was now heading off the trail and headlining for a spoon drain I rode in the drain I then hit something resulting in me going over the bars I ended up Lying in the drain with the Beta tumbling towards me and landed on top of me. Captain was there straight away to get me out. Steve who was leading came back to see what the delay was. I can still hear him saying those immortal words “what are you doing you silly old trucker” or words to that effect. Back on the bikes picked up the cars and we head back to the group. Steve drives his old ute quicker that his Beta, I reckon he would give Ari Vatanen a run for his money on those trails. Back to the group load up and head off home. Till the next one H.T.
  13. Chewton - And why not on a Thursday!

    It wa something he would have said
