Weather good ...

Dust settled, and the track now dried off ...

Four to six starters ...

As per original message, meeting up at Cpts Flat about 8:45 – keen to head off from there by 9:00 ...

Meet at the pull-out on the eastern side of Foxlow St – just past the oval, and before the turnoff to Braidwood Rd ...

PS: please ensure fuel sufficient for at least 150km after Cpts Flat ...
Room for another?

I'm just back from 4.5 days on the DR and its ready to go another.

How about I meet you at Jerangle at 09.30?

Steve

That would be great Steve - good news

9:30 at Jerangle sounds about right - perhaps just a little before? - assuming that we can get away from Cpts Flat on time, it should be a reasonably quick run - only 36km.

Look forward to meeting you - see you in the morning - Hoots

I had a brilliant day – great to meet you Steve (BergD), Stu (Stuc) and Peter (Petie).
Special thanks Steve for the guided tour – beautiful riding country – infinitely better than the planned route – but clearly plenty more to see ...
Also very uplifting to see a DR ridden as hard as that! – fantastic – KTM suspension notwithstanding – the bar has well and truly been raised ...
I’ll be suggesting more rides in the near future if no-one beats me to it – great day out.
Sam.

PS: a snap of the tyre change - and one of the assembly at the 'helipad' ...

+1 on that - brilliant days riding.

Some more snaps:



Assembled at Jerangle.



Helipad @ Mt Dowling - already being regaled by stories.







The tyre change
