With all the rain from the past week, tomorrow should be cool and plenty wet. Don't know where yet, but I'm going somewhere. If anyone is interested or in the vicinity- let me know.

Heading towards Border-run 1st weekend in August. Did think about leaving on Friday for a little see-see.

Was planning to go up Beladonia track to Belladonia and then head East. There are plenty of GPS tracks paralel to higway and was hoping to try some of them. Maybe visit some homesteads and caves. Bushcamping on Friday and Border on Saturday. Tracks will be plenty wet and will fit the knobbies before the trip. Will be continueing into SA after the weekend.

Any takers for some company on the way? Dodgierogie?

Saturday, we do homesteads and make our way North to Balladonia via the eastern tracks.

Sunday, we follow the heritage trail from Norseman through the Brockman reserve via the old mine sites to Dundas townsite before departing home.

Get together at Balladonia for Baptist church on Sunday night. Missus's following in the Patrol.

G'day John, a couple of great rides being planned there. I'm unable to get out there this year as I'm off OS in a few weeks. Have fun!

One month to go to Border run. Thanks for the reply Dave. I see Eaglebeak might be at Border run and then OCR.

I haven't decided on OCR yet- we are planning a Tassie trip in October (maybe combine with MotoGP) and I can't do both. Hoping to get some clarity today.

Hi mate, yeah, I'm definitely going to the Border Run and the OCR.

Originally planned to leave on the 5th August for an easy ride to the Border with Mrs Beak (GS500) and the little Eaglet with me in the outfit (GSX1400)
Now Suze has started a new job so both the girls aren't coming.

I've decided to still leave on the 5th so I'll camp out on the Hyden-Norseman Rd on Thursday and somewhere east of Balladonia on Friday night.
I'm away for a bit over 3 weeks so I'm taking the outfit for comfort (more food, drinks and clothes. I'm getting soft)

Hope to catch up with you. Did you see that Danny (Burren Rider) might make it to the OCR as well ?

Andrew.

Nope, but I take note now.

Just got our leave confirmed today for our Tassie trip. Will start booking MotoGP and ferry tickets on Monday. We plan to leave the 11th, do the GP at Phillip island, cross over on the ferry on monday and be back on the mainlaind 7 days later for a return trip to esp.

So OCR is out, but I'll see you guys at the Border. I might stay over at Balladonia homestead on Thursday as I have to drop of some stuff for the folks there. The do an overnighter somewhere further east (maybe at the cliffs).
