    A great day to Milang Sth Australia was had by all :ricky ...................... well nearly! :p3rry ...........................:dunno

    Luckily not too much damage to man or machine though, but let's see how his fellow riders saw it :evil

    The rest just powered on smokin' rubber even through the sandy tracks :lol3 & devouring everything/one in front of them.

    More to be revealed. :deal

    And now "The Report": enjoy! :thumb

    Part 1:

    The day started out like any other ride day, clean crisp hills air with bright sunny skies ................. the only difference this day was ........................... this bakery was open :yum :rofl

    [​IMG]

    With the media reporting of so many motorcycle accidents in the news lately, TurboRob came prepared with his version of "airbags" :lol3

    It wasn't long before we were mixing it with nature at an easy casual pace :ricky

    However, above the sounds in our heads :evil we started hearing the frightening roar of exhaust thunder :ear .................................... 'Acropovic' quadraphonic thunder ........... frighteningly good that is :wings ........................... the pack was getting closer & closer :huh

    The eery feeling of being the "hunted" grew over us :eek1

    Quick! ................ duck behind this dust cloud :D

    [​IMG]

    and down this gully track :cromag

    [​IMG]

    Emuooz got his first target :hack closely followed with backup from 1WD :tough

    [​IMG]

    .................................... and all to show was a stain on the wall :cry

    Good ride MB, 300kms door to door, left home at 7.00am & got home at 3.30pm...long day in the saddle with a XR but fully enjoyed it.

    Hosed off the bike & washed all my gear including myself, just looking at video to see if any is worth posting.

    Cheers Terry

    Looks like you guys had a great ride today. I came across you at the Balhanah Bakery early this morning, I was with Forestry SA on the way to work, I took a moment to speak to one of your members. I would like to join you for ride one day if that's OK?

    Another perfect day out Kym. Thanks.

    And! Did you hear the rumor, Finally, after just over 3 years of hanging out with you lot, I finally fell off. Only low speed in the sand.

    Am I in a special club now? Huh?

    Only 1 witness. :D

    Could have been worse though, I thought I was going to ride right over the top of Michael at one stage. Close enough call!

    :-)
