Shame you can't be with us Steve - I'm only about 70% confident about finding my way back through those trails without JD's guidance ...
Can whoever goes on the ride please make sure Hoots actually has a smoked trout pie.

Bonus points for before/after photos.

don't worry about my tyres mate, back is a bald as from riding everyday. Thanks to my mate Hal at TJ's I'm rocking a new kenda big block on the front and will have to get a new Avon on the back in the next week or so. I often do a little squirt up dog trap road on the way home, turn off at the Quarry just out of Canberra good fun fast squirt.
Planning a ride myself for a coming weekend, not sure which yet, will probably be an overnighter. Also have decide cold or warmish climes More details forthcoming still in gestation.
Cheers
Fati

Hey Hoots I will try to sneak out the door without the misses knowing, I 'll tell her I am just popping out to get some milk.
Will PM you to see how the work/life balance pans out. Looks like the roads may be wet, got to love that red clay when its wet.

Siva you got the bike on the road yet, regos due....

Probably come home from work [0600 knock off], breakfast, wonder why I'm doing this & head off from home about 0800'ish
Might even do a round trip & come back via Nottinghan Rd & WJ
Only going for a morning ride up there, & back for beauty sleep before work again @ 2200.
Cheers
Baza

Yeah I reckon I'll be up for it. Got a new rear tyre yesterday so all good. Drew coming still remains to be seen. Might break off at Nottingham road and go on to Wee Jasper forest road and up to the Trig. I like the trig and there might even be some snow.
0800 Sunday at the Yass in the main street?
Cheers
Fati

8:00ish from Yass on Sun morning might be pushing it a bit for me ...

Was keen to feature in one of Fati's helmet cam movies - and vice versa - but might have to leave you both to it - another time - perhaps this overnighter that Fati is hatching ...

Plan B: Sunday breakfast at Grazing in Gundaroo ...
