    Why'd you guys pick a weekend so close to Christmas? If it wasn't for the promise of free piss at the other half's Christmas party I'd be up there too. :beer

    You're right mate, several hours of sipping on free cold beverages, or a weekend wobbling over dusty roads in 40 degree heat, with a couple of whinging mates only to drink overpriced piss in a 120 year old pub in the middle of nowhere... then to sleep on the ground amongst the skeeters.
    Yeh mate easy choice.....

    So how did the KLR Konvention go?
    Did Barra mate with the Barmaid of his Dreams & receive a coy smile & large discount on subsequent schooners?
    Did the Sheik of Lotus Creek break out the Bundy when his long lost 'lations roared into his forecourt on their KLR's.

    Spill the beans! Post plenty of compromising photos!

    Someone spoiled it with a new KTM, i wonder who that could have been. :brow

    Now Johno and OBB i think i've unlocked the gate to the Yellow brick road in Blackdown NP :evil When you enter the park stay on the main dirt rd untill you reach a turnoff on the right about 2k's past the Mimosa camping area , which on the park map is the one way loop rd. The sign said 4wd only and had just a boom gate pad locked. However after closer inspection the lock was not locked and even if it was you can get a bike under the gate anyway. There was NO sign saying NO ENTRY :deal so that means it's okay right? Now by my calculations about 2 or 3 k down that track you will find another track off to the left that should take you south to the holy grail and all the way to the Rolleston highway :1drinkMan that country up there is hardcore if there's no track you would have have no hope of getting anywhere, but that place is littered with old logging tracks that can be seen easily on Google Earth maps.
    So stop pissing around and go for it before the rain starts and report back.
    Disclaimer in the event that someone would be foolish enough to follow my instuctions, ring this number 000. :ear

    I'am out of here at the crack of dawn, my surfboard is waxed and the budgy smugglers are packed. The Gold Coast awaits, goodbye flies dust and 40 degree days. Hello sand between the toes, scantly clad Bikini babes and knife weilding drug'oes. :brow Now watch the wet season appear and head south. :lol3

    So all you blokes and shelias have a good one and don't eat to much, right Charles :brow And Barra i'll think of you sweating your arse off up they're in Mango land while i'm viewing the birdlife at the Broardbeach beer garden :1drink

    Untill we meet again :fyyff Merry Xmas.

    Dingo to Rolleston about 200 to 250k's as a wild guess via googly maps.
