    Just moved to Bundaberg, and brought my kitted out F800Gs with me. Looking to find people to ride with. As an avid dirt biker I will be getting another KTM 350 to replace the one I sold before we moved. So who is in the area?

    Hi Thumper, welcome to the rum city. :clapMate I live just outside Bundy near GinGin. Have a few bikes, all Yamaha! I work at the Fire Station and including my bikes there are 2 XR650R's Husky 610 and DR650. Happy to catch up for a ride sometime and show you around. I've got the S10 for the adventure and WR 250(when fixed) for the dirt. Cheers. Jono.

    In Hervey Bay if you choose to come south.
    Riding a DRZ so more suited to the tighter stuff.
    Cheers Lionel.

    Starky here in Maryborough. I believe you have a mate in Ipswich by the name of Gordon?

    If you are interested in joining in some rides down this way we have a group of 5 -10 regular riders that head off in all directions. Pretty simple to meet up in Childers and head toward Biggenden through Wongi/Brooweena area.

    PM sent

    Sounds good. Only thing is that my F800 dual-sport bike is a lemon. Sigh.
    Oh Hang on, it is Orange, so must be OK.

    Hey Boys (and girls) trying to organise a ride on either of the above dates. Trying to tie in with work days off. Could be 4 from work(XTZ 750 or 660, DR650, XR650 and Husky 610) with a support driver for a lunch stop. Just a day ride but looking for a loop to finnish around wreck rock just south of Agnes Waters. Support veh to meet for lunch supplies. Easy day ride up to 450kms if interested but can suit depanding on bike type, interest ect. After lunch/stop I would imagine we could easy cruise back to bundy in about an hour but happy to add easy trails home ect. All welcome. PM for specific details or jump on board here.:D:D

    Trust you are all OK. Just spoke to a sister who is cut off near South Kolan. 350 mm so far in her gauge. She is a life saver and was called up to work with SES but can't get out. She has been stuck before andis well prepared. Mum is in town in Bundy without power and can't flush toilets because the sewerage system is flooded. Phone is also out with underground boxes flooded.

    Yeah well it's WET! 423mm in 2 and a half days. Still more falling. I'm cut off with the river currently about 2+ meters over our only road out. Looks like it will rise. I am between Wallaville, GinGin and South Kolan. No problems with supplies and so far so good with the power. Stay safe everyone.

    Getting smashed here in Hervey Bay at the moment, just waiting for the roof to get blown off the kids cubby hut!
    There's bits trees up and down the street, my TV antenna is trying to pull the roof off the shed, gotta love cyclone season. Even had to bring the dog into the laundry...

    Oh well, we'll see what damage the day brings.

    PS. Dunc's , I won't be in to work today!
