Yeh mate easy choice.....
Really, I'd like to do both....

So how did the KLR Konvention go?
Did Barra mate with the Barmaid of his Dreams & receive a coy smile & large discount on subsequent schooners?
Did the Sheik of Lotus Creek break out the Bundy when his long lost 'lations roared into his forecourt on their KLR's.

Spill the beans! Post plenty of compromising photos!

Someone spoiled it with a new KTM, i wonder who that could have been.

Now Johno and OBB i think i've unlocked the gate to the Yellow brick road in Blackdown NP When you enter the park stay on the main dirt rd untill you reach a turnoff on the right about 2k's past the Mimosa camping area , which on the park map is the one way loop rd. The sign said 4wd only and had just a boom gate pad locked. However after closer inspection the lock was not locked and even if it was you can get a bike under the gate anyway. There was NO sign saying NO ENTRY so that means it's okay right? Now by my calculations about 2 or 3 k down that track you will find another track off to the left that should take you south to the holy grail and all the way to the Rolleston highway Man that country up there is hardcore if there's no track you would have have no hope of getting anywhere, but that place is littered with old logging tracks that can be seen easily on Google Earth maps.
So stop pissing around and go for it before the rain starts and report back.

I'am out of here at the crack of dawn, my surfboard is waxed and the budgy smugglers are packed. The Gold Coast awaits, goodbye flies dust and 40 degree days. Hello sand between the toes, scantly clad Bikini babes and knife weilding drug'oes. Now watch the wet season appear and head south.

So all you blokes and shelias have a good one and don't eat to much, right Charles And Barra i'll think of you sweating your arse off up they're in Mango land while i'm viewing the birdlife at the Broardbeach beer garden

Untill we meet again Merry Xmas.
