Any ADVers in Mudgee?

Morning all, well it looks like i'm moving to Mudgee in the next month or so. Do we have any inmates down there? I know Leggo lives just up the road at Gulgong so I'll be wandering up there to show him how to drinkon occasion.
I'm looking forward to getting up into those hills on a bike and checking the place out.

Beautiful country around Mudgee. Only drove through there on my way west just after Easter. You`ll need to take out a small loan, every time you want to fill up though. Damn greedy buggers there.

Got a job with Xstrata's coal mine there?

BTW drop into Sofala (?) when you're out and about. I stopped there on the way to Phillip Island one year, great pub. The town was used for the back drop to Peter Wiers' "The Cars that Ate Paris" movie, Aussie cult classic.


Can you hear the banjos playing OldDog??? Muhaaaaaaaar arrarrrr (evil laugh)

Stop Press OD!!!

Bad news on the bike front (I think?). The mighty KLE @ 82,000km did a funny thing on Friday night on the way home. Coughed and spluttered as if the main tank was low, so switched to reserve. Bike did not come good, lost power, and I was flat out holding 80km/h on the flat. Pulled over, everything seemed ok and I ASSUMED that it may be some fuel blockage or contamination of sorts. Got fresh fuel in Gulgong and headed the 7km home - no difference...

No chance for a look yesterday, so started her up this morning. V. smoky exhaust, wont rev, looking ominously like oil . Pulled the plugs and No. 2 cylinder looks dodgy. Pulled the valve cover and valve gear looks OK. Trying to get hold of a compression tester to see If I can get a handle on what the drama may be.

Suffices to say that my riding may be significantly curtailed in the coming weeks/months (it's winter anyway) if it is a major problem. Although Leggos (ex OFBM) 640 is still for sale I think...

Fuggen...

Yup just talking to him last night (he's enjoying the banjo playing in my old home town of Hervey Bay at the moment) and the 640 is still for sale. Once i get down there and get a house with a shed i'll be setting up OD's workshop again so you could always bring the KLE round and we can have a look inside it

New job Ian???

Doesn't snow much in Mudgee though (if that can be considered good news..)

Last decent snow I can remember was probably about '73 which'd also be about the last wet year too.

Some good day riding round the area - go find middle earth for example then the various ways out.

I recall thrashing around a very dry Burrengong in the early 80's on an AG100. Lots of fun but it wouldn't climb hills.
And an F100 through the earthworks at Windemere Dam site. I loved spending time out in the back roads around the place. Didn't do enough of it, but do any of us?
