    Well this is my second RR for this weekend, so the fact that I can write that means I had an awesome weekend.

    On my return yesterday from this http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=507783 my neighbour cornered me and said "Where are we going tomorrow for a ride,,, organise something...."

    So gobsmacked,,, I gave it some thought since he had to be back arround 2pm it cut out alot of options. Duck Creek Rd O'Reileys came to my mind,,, or 17 Mile Rd Helidon.

    So the next day 5 mins before departure Duck Creek Rd was selected....

    So approximately 7:30 AM we left and headed to Yamanto for fuel and Breaky at Maccas.......


    Breaky and Fuel Stop at Yamanto,,, oh look a Black one has joined the Green one...

    Oh Look a Muppet,,,, hang on thats no Muppet thats me....

    We blasted off on the Ipswich Boonah Rd then turned off and headed to Beaudesert. It was then I realised I had forgotten to upload the waypoint for Duck Creek Rd to the GPS. So quickly stopped found the road on the GPS and before you know it we were there. Did not take any photos but the trip on Kerry Rd was great very nice scenery and bugger all traffic.

    Destination O'Reileys

    [​IMG]

    Carpark at O'Reileys

    [​IMG]


    Departed O'Reillys via the cage access point... great twisty but narrow road full of ignorant car drivers. Sadly really no spots to stop to take some pics. So it was down the twisty bits onto Canungra and then hack across Ripley Rd (dirt again :clap ) back to home by about 2 PM

    Absolutely Awesome Road,,, Duck Creek Road Highly Recommended


    Just one small slice of the Great Ozzie Landscape
