Two 690s and a day off work - Aus

Mudguts and i had a Friday off, So decided on a overnighter round Jamieson





After crossing over the range, and lunch at Woodspoint - we did Old Coach, and German Spur and then checked out Army track to attempt either HolyLand or Lazzarini's depending on water level.

Both crossings were too deep



I walked this one - and with water almost up to the nuggets - and current nearly pushing me down stream we decided on giving it a miss.

Have done this crossing at a fraction lower than this and almost got swept down stream - heres a photo from last year



Any way - turned round and headed for Jamo to refuel - left there just before 4pm deciding to check out the snow at Mt Skeene.



Good decision - but pretty damn cold - especially having got fully soaked walking the river just before.



Headed back to Jamo - getting to the pub in the dark and just as we arrived it started pissing down - good timing.

Next day we headed for Flourbag track, then Moonlight, down Hope track and home. Good couple of days out..





Too bad my gopro doesnt seem to last on the batteries for too long - i missed the most challenging riding. next time

Well the day started with an easy 65km ride cross Melbourne to Yarra Glenn to meet Dave this time I was my early with enough time for coffee and brekie
We both filled up but I for got to isolate my front tanks so half way up the black spur my bike was spewing fuel out the back ,Ooops thanks Dave for spotting that my ass could have been nice and toasty next to a fireball on the side of the road .




Dave standing lookin cool



Me sitting cause me ass is frozen to the seat



As Dave mentioned the current in the river was to strong
And I didnt want to get my feet wet




Still lookin tuff from this angle

Mudders, at least some fresh fuel on your ass crack would have kept the crabs from biting for a bit.

Surprised to see your running an evo air box lid instead of a rally raid filter
