My KRR Ride Feb 2015

I had a few days off work, and the Karuah River Rally was on, what a coincidence. After a call to Todd arrangements were made.
Thurs morn, Astro, Ocker, p38arover, Saturn5 and David (the Canadian who bought Saturn's bike) and myself had a get together at Glenorie bakery . Was good to have a chin wag over a coffee and pastry.



Ocker came with me up to Wisemans Ferry, then St Albans and a nice dirt road to Bucketty.

It was pouring rain when I left the Gong, but cleared up by Glenorie. Although the road ahead was wet, we didn’t' get rained on all trip. That's a bonus, and it had settled the dust on the Mogo Creek rd
Lunch at Wollombi pub, where Ock turned for home.

From Wollombi I went up thru Paxton, Mulbring and Buchanan. The back roads were nearly deserted an I made good time along here. I continued to Newcastle where I had a catch up with Muddy and Seahorse. Was good to see you blokes and have another chin wag. From here I went to Todd's place at Stockton, where I stayed the night. A few refreshments and reminiscing over times long gone, plus finalising plans for the weekend. Todd and his family are great hosts and made me feel at home, thanks guys.

Friday
Todd and I meet his brother, Jason at Raymond Terrace and we zig zagged our way to Singleton. Going the back way thru Lambs Valley was a moment to remember (for those who don't know, my surname is Lamb)


A break on the Bridgeman Rd

Albano Rd



Then to Rouchel Brook, past Glenbawn Dam and thru Gundy to have lunch at Moonan Flat and buy some cold supplies for the night.


Then an adventurous (for this little black duck, anyhoo) trip along Tomalla Rd, I didn't know you could go down a hill for so long.



A bit further along


The hill in the background is where I took the other pics from

And that’s the way we're going

Carters Rd, Curricabark Rd to Woko NP Camping Ground.





I don't know how this pic got here, honest………..

Yummy

Pete from Stroud rode out after work and camped the night with us. I don't think I've got any useable pics of his bike, an 05 Vee. It's immaculate and puts mine (and me) to shame.

Sat

We (now there's 4 of us. Todd's friend, Pete joined us last night) travelled down to Gloucester on a mix of dirt and sealed roads. From here we did a few back roads, including Monkerai Rd, to Dungog for lunch and supplies for the night.

Then out to the Karuah River Rally at Frying Pan Creek Camping Ground.
To my surprise, Ocker met me at the "gate". Seems he re adjusted his gear and repaired the rack on the DR.



Just taking general pics when I notice a face I recognise, hi Chris

Later in the arvo, Todd's son Reece, joined us, riding his 650 Dominator
You can see Pete's bike over my seat and Reece's to the right of mine

A great time was had by all and plans made for the next trip.
Up Sunday morn and packed ready for the trip home. Out thru the "top road" to East Gresford, Cessnock , Back thru Wollombi and stopped at Jerry's, Kulnura. I was getting my riding gear off when Fester24 comes over. Seems he was the bike I'd been following for some time. Was good to you Frank.
It was a hot and weary ride, no pics today. Home around 4.30pm.
It was a good trip, but nothing beats getting home.
The End

Nice!
So it must have been your tyre marks ( some Oh f%*k! moments were there? ) I followed from Tomalla down through Curricabark.
