Now to focus on the story at hand



Due to work commitments Kym2, Graham Giles & myself trailered the bikes Thursday, while TonyRDR was riding up Friday and "Mr Happy" aka "The Cable Guy" aka "The Pocket Rocket" aka "The Zip Tie Man" and soon to be added to the list: "Mr Loctite" (and yes we have told him that with his engineering skills he'll need the stronger one ).

Last but not least, the energy charged "Antigravity Micro Man", the way he has survived so many crashes in his short career.







Not to mention a fantastic ride report material creator and all time great guy & good friend, Prasad who rode up solo Thursday via Yunta & Martins Well.

Everyone was concerned for his safety due to his past riding reputation and we were relieved to see he had arrived as planned at the Village in one piece.

Although he greeted us with gear lever in hand.

While others "wasted" precious daylight time setting up camp for the night, Prasad & myself did a quick loop of Glass Gorge to dial our Flinders Ranges "mobile obstacles eyes" in for goats, emus and kangaroos not to mention cattle & sheep.







more to come .....

I reckon Tony might have made it MB. It looks a little 'undulating' up there but it's a DR, and we know they go anywhere. My money is on success!!

You are correct Sir Trevor

Thanks for the vote of confidence Trev. To be honest there was not much control or finesse involved as you can see from my method of stopping the bike at the top.

It was an easy thing to do Tony, I just looked for other Masterbrewer YouTube videos until I found the one with the result. To be honest I thought you were in all sorts of trouble up the top.

Now that we have conquered that hill

Next morning the Nuccaleena Mine & PAR were in our sites.



The early part of the Nuccaleena Mine track, mid part & come to think of it, end part, is nearly all negotiating rocks, rocks & more sharp edged rocks.



Your eyesight is constantly torn between the track in front with its absolutely disastrous, puncturing creating sharp rocks



and the absolutely fantastic panoramic scenery

Then onto the outrageous, exhilarating PAR (Pubic Access Road)



The car wreck.



and the Lookout





and of course the group shot at the lookout minus the cameraman Prasad .

Watch where you're treading there.

Trouble free riding up to now

But then ........................................ it started

After a skillful decent



There was a little situation of a small off behind the trees as he stopped, when leg length was an issue.

Before recomposing himself to catch further action down the hill.



Reputations of the Finders Ranges views continued to impress.



Reputations of a nameless particular rider continued to impress as well
