Can't make it tomorrow. Be a bit doughy after a night at Suncorp at the rugby. Keen for the future though. Got my fill of dust in Mt Mee today anyway.

Short Ride Only - Away at 8 back at 6

Nice run up to Nebo down the goat track. Look at the display of bikes in Samford and then off to dayboro tracks to Kilkoy.





Ian led us through some great tracks accross to Lindville












From Lindville we did a great track up through paddocks to the top of the blackbutt range






We headed backdown the range road and via tracks around blackbut till we found a tree.



We found our way round along another great bush 2 track and stop at toogoolawah for fuel.

The last push was to try and break back into mt mee by the back way. We end up 50 m from the top lantana and heat got the better of us and we cut and ran over glorious. We finished beat but what an epic loop.

Great Pics

Hey Guys

Thanks for posting the pictures, looks like you had a great ride. I hope to be joining in on a ride in the following weeks where I can break in my new 2013 KLR650.

Being a noob myself, i will stick to easy trails. Probably fuel up at kilcoy, and head up traves road (mt kilcoy) then turn right up the top somewhere.

I am thinking about making this a weekender, with a stop overnight at the Kilkivan hotel. I have never been there before.

I have no capability of carrying gear yet, but I will manage to strap a small overnight bag to the DR if I need to. Is anyone else interested in doing an overnight run? Big maybe at this stage.

No problem. Just an idea at this stage. Any preference on day for you?

I think I have worked out a way to get to belthorpe via glasshouse mountains. Bit of tar in the middle (Commissioners flat to Stanmore) though, which I am not sure if its possible to avoid.

You plan your ride, I will make either day work. If a two day ride I will make it for one day.

Fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCK. I just realised tonight after being reminded, that the weekend I had planned to ride is our yacht clubs centenary regatta (100 ears old!!). Its spans the whole weekend, and being the immediate past commodore and an elected committee member of the club I am expected to be there. I am going to try and weasel out of the Saturday and still ride, but I wont know until next week if thats possible. Fucken spewin'. My intention was to step down from Yacht club stuff and do more riding...still working on that...
