[QHi

Mike is my name. New to the sport and I am in Miranda (Sutherland Shire) What about a ride on saturday 8/12/12 I have a few ideas.


Regards


Mike


UOTE=Ockrocket;20068595]Where are you located [approximately, don't post your home/street address] Gs650?

I have next Friday off, no set plans yet for the weekend [but the Mrs. may change that if we have pre Christmas obligations, ie. socialising ]

A name would be handy too.... I'm Ock. aka Steve

I think we can figure out what you ride


Cheers,
Ock.[/QUOTE]

G'day Mike,

At this stage I'm tied up on the 8th of Dec., will let you know if that changes.

Keep an eye open for other dates I might be free on though.

I'm hoping to get some rides in over the Christmas period as well, including some camping on the bike. (just did an overnighter to Crookwell via Bathurst with plenty of dirt roads involved, great weekend).

Cheers,
Ock. (aka Steve)

RR [at last]

Well seeing as everyone else has posted RR's in this thread I might as well do the same.

It was a great day out and a very relaxing pace was the order of the day [the point is to reach the end......not the hospital ].

The meet point at Maccas Richmond, I'd like to say all the others were late but the truth is I was so glad to actually be getting out on a group ride I misread the original post with the start time of 0830, I turned up at 0800


Roadside regroup on Mt. Lagoon Road.


The head of a bushwalking track down to the Colo River at Mt. Tootie- not a walk for the faint hearted based on the information on the sign.



Apparently Katoom's don't come from the factory with a side stand, if you own one always make sure you ride in an area with an abundance of solid trees to choose from.


Stopped at a little "play ground" for those that were keen enough to try.


The challenge was taken by some.


A short vid of a couple of KTM's showing off, as they always seem to do- click on the picture.


Another stop along the way.


And the view from there, don't slip off the edge.


One of the ferry crossings along the way.



Thanks to Karl for putting up the idea for a Newbie ride, and to Wayne for leading the way- all the while keeping in mind the skill level of the Newbs and setting an appropriate pace with suitable tracks and challenges not too extreme.

The company was good and the weather was ideal for the day.

I think I have more pics of the day but they are not uploaded to PB yet, when I get them done I will add more to this post.

Looking forward to doing another one at some point as there are a couple more new forum members looking to do some rides.

As you can see by the mix of bikes on this ride the day was suitable for a range of bikes and skills levels.


Ock. [aka Steve- soon to be known as "Trail Snail" me-thinks]

Good to see the latest photos. I am back from Asia this Friday but the 950 won't leave here until Christmas so I guess I will miss the next few rides too..... Unless I pinch the Funduro

< puts hand up >

I'm a noob, and would def be interested in coming along noob run at some point - this weekend might be a bit soon for me, though. Only been riding a few months and have what seems to me to be a fairly top heavy bike (Honda Dominator) so I'd definitely be one of the most cautious riders...

I can't do the long weekend either.

I can do a bit of a ride on Friday 25th. [was already thinking of posting something up on here and a couple of other forums for it]

I'm up for a day/weekend ride after the Australia day long weekend though, happy to lead a similar route to the one we did back in November.
