    Nope, just the first five minutes, you can't get any wetter after that.

    Mt Molloy pub one evening and a nice night ride home or swag on the lawn are the sort of meetings i like. Scotty just had a group of 30 bikers ring and book but never arrived nor notified, he thought it was us Cairns and Townsville advers again but he now knows it wasnt.

    To be fair... every road in and out of the town was closed with water over it.

    They might have assumed it was obvious they were canceling.

    True, i'm too polite i guess, i would have called knowing how country folk go out of their way for us. He did mention about them not calling so i felt it personally.

    How good is this rain
    and more more more to come
    went to kuranda last weekend to have a look at the falls pumping
    decided to take mrs reef on the sky rail down to smithy and back (she hates heights)
    best view of the falls from skyrail and only 122 bucks for both of us return at the local rate, well worth it
    then counterie at the bottom pub kuranda and a slow wet drive home,
    bloody great day

    Morning all. I am looking for a seat assembly, from an adventure bike of some kind such as a XR600/650, KTM 950 / 990, DR650. I dont have any specific in mind, as long as the base is not broken, I shall get the upper recovered and refoamed. Not too wide, not too thin. Cairns or Tablelands area preferred. What is out there? Thanks

    Couldn’t get to work today because of the rain... what a shame!

    Should ease up the rest of the week but the majority of models are predicting cyclone Iris may cross the coast on the weekend around cairns somewhere as a weak low or cat 1 cyclone, bringing 300mm to 1m of rain on the south side of wherever it crosses.

    Is that easter ride still happening?

    I'm not keen to stray far from home, too hard to get help if we need it with all these road closures. But if you guys are still going I'll join for the first day. I know a lot of the trails around Atherton/Herberton if you need help finding stuff that hasn't flooded out in that area.
