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

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

    Well, 8/9/10 June is the 'Alpine' rally, can do some exploring from there on the Saturday? :cromag

    Look Ma, no fence - no gate!
    Or the 'DR Muster' - 6/7/8 July up @ Tuena, can provide an interesting scenic ride from Yass for that one too! :dllama
    Or we could organise a mid week sorty up through to Grenfell & beyond:topes
    Up to what ever people want to do? :lol3
    Cheers

    I hadn’t realised that the alpine rally was this long weekend - probably can’t stay overnight, but will try to poke out there on one of the days ...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Tuena sounds good – must be bloody cold up there early July – will get better organised for that one ...<o:p></o:p>

    Tuena is a rally of hardy souls, good port or rum weather for sure! :freaky

    Can provide a fairly tar-free ride from Yass too, know lots of interesting back-tracks to get there :eek1

    Mont Sale at Albert Hall in Canberra.

    Sorry for the late notice but I only just found out about it. Mr Jingellic saw it in the newspaper.
    Looked like some really good prices.
    We picked up a Moondance 3 person tent. Was about 50% off. We must have the monopoly on tents now as I think that brings our total to about 7 tents...:huh (It weighs under 2kg so that was a real positive for us).
    Lots of clothing and accessories like drybags etc..... worth a look in my opinion.
