    The Flinders Ranges Classic VI 2013 was looking to be the best ever with over 100 people registered, and many thanks going to the irrepressible DRTrev/AussieTrev . :clap

    [​IMG]

    I must admit my reputation of leading adventurous riders over some fabulous terrain to get there has been somewhat tarnished in the last few years, (ol' age is finally sinking in :gerg ) after discovering the luxuries of not riding & not driving :dutch ....... I must admit I have sadly have become a changed man :(:

    That is until I get back onto the saddle of my fabulous TDM Adventurer :rayof

    Our first destination was to seek out membership of the famous Quorn Schnitzel Club. :dg

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    How could you go past The Outback? ...................... absolutely delicious :bow

    [​IMG]

    On arriving at our destination ...............

    [​IMG]

    We were greeted by Mr Smiley :rofl

    [​IMG]

    and easily recognised his digs for the weekend

    [​IMG]

    Settling in with the "camp party people" .............. errr !!!! ............... I mean't those camping :D

    First night's greet & meet was fabulous & I wondered what the rest of the world was doing ........ only for a minuscule :rofl.

    First wonder of the weekend ..................

    Can you imagine this ................. here's Con ...... bottle of half emptied red ..... juicy looking steak on the plate .................... side dish of......................... WTF Nurofen plus :eek1 ......... with extra bottles of who knows what he said he had under his pillow :slurp Dancing with the verandah post was worth watching :lol3

    Memories! ...................... those were the days of a misspent youth ..... I'm afraid I'm feeling older & older mixing with you young tigers ..... sorry Trev ...... I mean fellas :evil

    However Con miraculously survived & lived on to experience his own karma later.

    Next morning a loyal few headed out on a westerly 481km loop out of Hawker I'd ridden 5 years earlier & was keen to experience again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately my navigational reputation was potentially in tatters after a small lack of concentration saw us heading on an unplanned road :cromag ( damn first night celebrations :freaky )

    Luckily with quick aptitude I was able to redeem myself and provide my followers with an extraordinary touring experience :deal they all comment favourably on :jack

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To help conceal my mistake I was determined to appear authoritative about the local fragile environment & called everyone together for education purposes :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that close escape I guided the troops through some more interesting tracks past Oraparinna HS hoping they would be enthralled enough to forget my error :augie

    We soon found ourselves on the top of the fabulous Stokes Hill lookout with my younger cousin :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    By this time lunch was calling in Wilpena Pound..

    Eating lunch at Wilpena Pound one couldn't help but get a sense of someone's life was not as free as he thought :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After refuelling body & bike we headed in an easterly direction and yet again ............. Big Brother was still watching :rofl

    [​IMG]

    What's with these non TDM related bikes ????? :augie

    [​IMG]

    Finally the troops began to arrive & we didn't accept their dust excuse either :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    By this time we were some 300kms into the loop & fluids were getting low, so of course .............. !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The return loop was now in site and we hightailed back to Ango Village for another nights fun & laughter :freaky

    [​IMG]

    Excitement was building for the next days "Flinders Classic TT"

    " ...................................... we hightailed back to Ango Village for another nights fun & laughter :freaky"
    That phrase began to haunt me at 4am, when loud thumping music was still being heard coming from the camp party :rilla people, even with the ear plugs in. :ddog

    Revenge was sweet early next morning though when Domonsura backed his bike up to the entrance to their tent & rung its neck for a minute or two :jack



    Moving on .............. The Flinders Classic TT

    Well! ....... it was actually .................... "Trev's Tiger" Tour :deal

    [​IMG]

    Having heard of the pleasures associated with having the "cheese & cracker carrying tortoise" on a ride,:kbasa

    [​IMG]

    We kept a close eye not to lose AussieOtto on his Ural

    [​IMG]

    Amazing Brachina Gorge, beautiful as ever :clap

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and together with the fun one can have along the way :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Doubts were beginning to set in about soggy crackers, when we saw the Tortoise attacking the water crossing at full flight :eek1

    [​IMG]

    But he soon dried out.

    [​IMG]

    Having the loan Tigers for the classic was a real treat for smiley Trev & together with his generosity :bow he ensured nearly everyone got a ride.

    [​IMG]

    I must admit the Triumph is rather addictive: :happay:wings:rayof:pynd:raabia


    The TDM is like the romantic, adventurous, mature age woman where as the Tiger is the high powered, ambitious sexy female executive, potentially ruthless yet forgiving and modest.

    They both have the ability to keep you on your toes and put a great big smile on your face .......... that's the bikes that is :evil :lol3

    I love 'em both in their own way :raabia


    I asked Trev if he wanted the Tiger back when we reached the dirt.

    "Nah! You can go for a short 5km dirt experience if you like MB", says Trev

    However, unknowingly the Devil took me under his control & before I knew what had happened, I had completed the full length of the 29km Moralana Scenic Drive.

    The Devil made me do it honest .............................................................that's my story and I'm sticking to it. :lol3
    <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
    [​IMG]

    Sheer delight when I finally got to the end & off the Tiger ...................... that's for Trev too. :lol3

    [​IMG]

    The rest of the troops had gone to Wilpena for lunch some time ahead of PBee, Trev, AussieOtto & myself, when all of a sudden PBee started slowing. :huh

    He's killed a tiger, I thought to myself :lol3

    But it was a classic case (errr!! ..... Flinders Classic :D ) of the Hare & the Tortoise

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Having ridden his Tiger much more economically, that's both him & me :D

    Trev said he wasn't actually out of fuel ......... it was only a precaution :evil & we believed him :lol3

    [​IMG]

    After lunch Tiger Trev lead us up Stokes Hill lookout for the mandatory sexy photo shoot :sweeti before heading back to Ango to prepare for the big feast that night.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The rest of us delighted in enjoying the classic scenery the Flinders Ranges has to offer. :clap

    [​IMG]

    When :huh towards home .......................... that doesn't look good :eek1

    With that huge localized dump of rain near where we were planning to go, a sense of urgency rose & we decided to hightail it back to camp ASAP

    [​IMG]

    However within 5kms of Blinman we were confronted with a 2 metre high wall of raging torrent across the road :huh


    <IFRAME height=315 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uAx6srUvQ4A" frameBorder=0 width=560 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>

    The lads heading home from the other side of Blinman were within 3kms of the thirst quenching Blinman Hotel, but were forced to wait over 3 hours for the raging torrent to subside.

    <IFRAME height=315 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5XNdtTXIYYM" frameBorder=0 width=420 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>


    It was then, PBee formed a Plan :deal :ear

    Lets retrace our tracks to either Plan (A) Brachina Gorge, if that is impassable; Plan (B) Moralana Scenic Drive and if that is also impassable; Plan(C) Hawker to get back onto the black top & up to Parachilna, ring Dave at the village to check Parachilna Gorge is still open & back home for a well earned beer or two.

    If all were blocked .......... who's got the biggest credit card limit to drown our sorrows at missing Trev's fabulous Saturday night Presentation Awards cookup at camp.

    and so we became Storm Racers :pynd

    However as all good plans go, the inevitable happened :shog

    "Hey guys" called Bernie ............... "I don't think I have enough fuel to get home" :eek1

    "No worries we'll get fuel at Parachilna" says a confident PBee and all were happy in the land of panic :clap

    [​IMG]

    As one good deed deserves another, PBee stepped forward & offered his (read AussieOtto's) fuel :lol3 Stewy also stepped up & offered to use his shiny bright new siphoning hose, so all was good in the land of hope, although time was ticking by. :*sip*

    We reached the still dusty Brachina Gorge, took a vote & decided to go for it :pynd & we succeeded in reaching the blacktop :wings

    [​IMG]

    Back at camp however, we were later told a few other riders tried to go through the Brachina Gorge some 30minutes behind us & were confronted with a raging torrent. :knary

    Mind you, I was continually looking over my shoulder as I know how fast these flash flood rise. :yikes

    Successfully reaching Parachilna in the rain, relief was at hand :clap

    [​IMG]

    PBee rang Dave at the village and was told ............... "you pussies get back here, the gorge is fine" :jack

    Refuelling was at hand or so we thought, only to be told we don't sell fuel anymore, :huh

    So Bernie tucked under the somewhat miniscule DR fairing trying to save as much fuel as possible & feathered ie opened it up in frustration .............. in a make it or break it attitude, the 15 kms back to Angorichina Village :lol3

    [​IMG]

    It wouldn't be long before the Parachilna Gorge was going to get interesting though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and we finally relaxed with our pre-dinner drinks in hand :beer

    Let the evening festivities begin :clap

    The venue for Saturday's Awards presentation / BBQ was moved from the Fire Pit near the Dorm to the new shelter for Captain Kaos to do his magic with his gismos, this time an outdoor cinema for everyone to relive their days exploits of fun :wings & not so much fun for some . :cry

    Excellent effort Wayne, love your work.

    [​IMG]

    By the way, whose bloomers did you use for the screen this time. :lol3

    [​IMG]

    It was also fantastic to be greeted by Mr Beer Belly Brewing Equipment himself, Domonsura with guns at the ready to dish out our "punishment" :dutch

    He was also tendering the unfortunately absent Kevs69's brews as well. Thanks Wayne. :bow

    [​IMG]

    After our long day's storm chasing adventure, I'm not sure which order events happened, but "The Organiser" received his justified reward for arranging yet another great event & spread. :clap
    A special thank you to all his helpers too :bow

    [​IMG]

    '

    Our "Lady Of Taxes" arrived to "spoil" the fun, handing out infringements like there was no tomorrow, which in her case could be true sometime soon. :deal Her ever vigilant security officer was definitely on his toes . :augie

    ( "Oh my goord, she's not doin' it again, is she?, I can't bear to look " ) :lol3

    [​IMG]

    Excitement grew as the night progressed :poser

    [​IMG]

    Only interrupted by the chance of a prize ................ "the people on the buses looked left & right ...... left & right ........eyes right this time please" :lol3

    Before seriously settling into Captain Kaos's movie magic :lurk (special thanks to all contributors :clap)

    The following videos represent perfectly the true meaning of mateship :evil enjoyed on a Flinders Classic Adventure.

    Everyone is always ready to help another in need :lol3

    <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/S0rmG6Lkk2Q" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>

    .......... for example making sure the camera is positioned correctly to capture all the action :poser:jack

    This one in particular epitomizes Trev's "Flinders Ranges Classic" perfectly :clap

    <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/CCt_u5xt6AM?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>

    ........ and of course, don't forget the Shame file

    <IFRAME height=360 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/dCXWiNpw2KM?feature=player_embedded" frameBorder=0 width=640 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>

    It was unusual to see a female rider challenging the guys domain, but we had the pleasure this year of a very capable Flinders Classic "Newby", Miss Molly" (aka Sarah), refer Con's Sarah's Climb video above ...................... that's her on the left by the way :D

    [​IMG]

    The last time we enjoyed the company of a female rider, GasGasBird both our "Classics" ended in pain & injury from separate accidents on the Flinders Classic III (and that's not including kipo's tea towel exploits :evil ), although it doesn't necessarily look that way in this photo after consuming the prescribed amount of pain killing "medicine" :freaky

    [​IMG]

    However an air of intrigue continued to prevail about Miss Molly, whose personality I likened to that akin to the Tiger.

    Further investigation revealed she was a new member of the Ariel Club and one of the lads' best kept secrets.

    We were in fact honoured by the presence of a local winemaker legend, who is rated amongst the most highly decorated, internationally renowned winemakers in the world. :deal :huh

    Owner & winemaker of Molly Dooker Wines in McLaren Vale, South Australia, Sarah has shattered the so called "Glass Ceiling" for women.

    Molly Dooker Winery is amazingly at our doorstep, but they don't advertise, relying solely on their "word of mouth" reputation from their "Wow Factor" wines. With most wines selling internationally & over the internet, only recently can their wine be found in Dan Murphy & other Australian wine merchants.

    Her latest collaboration is with Dave Stewart (from the Eurythmics) and Orianthi (Michael Jackson's guitarist) and their 'Molly Dooker Circus' to create & promote the Molly Dooker 'The Greatest Wine on Earth'.
    <?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/sTuOL-qreJc" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>


    After having the pleasure of meeting Sarah & learning of her &#8216;famousness&#8217;, I subsequently booked a winery tour & tasting, as I knew the day would be something special.

    Like her wines, her achievements have the &#8220;Wow&#8221; factor and all I can say is: I now see why my words of praise are pouring out of my mouth ......... (well! ...... in the written word actually, but who cares :D )

    Although Sarah could not be present, we found the experience a refreshingly friendly, relaxed, generous & contagiously dedicated professional fun loving atmosphere amongst all involved at Molly Dooker. :clap

    [​IMG]

    Being around "hav'n fun'' professionals was an intoxicating (that's not referring to the alcohol by the way), emotionally uplifting experience, especially after the difficult times we've endured with Mrs MB's health.

    I can't wait to share with our friends. Thank you Miss Molly. :bow


    I digress ............................................. now troops pay attention :deal

    [​IMG]

    As the Laurel & Hardy Magic Movie Show :clap was coming to a close, people started filtering back to their digs to either call it a night or party on. :freaky

    [​IMG]


    Determined to keep my momentum going I reloaded my VB tool .... err .... cool bag and ..............................

    "plotted a course" :cromag to talk more :topes I know! ... I know! .... I can't help myself, life's one big ride for me & I like to know where I'm goin' :deal

    As age started to weary them, I too headed for home, only to be side-tracked :ear by some fabulous, loud, rejuvenating AC/DC music :wings and so ...................................... stayed a while. :rayof

    As age started to weary me as well, I went in search of the previous night's camp party people :freaky but alas, the threat of another Domonsura "early morning wake up call" was too much. By this time my tool bag was empty, so I called it a night.

    Ear plugs at the ready I snuggled into "Doris" my sleeping companion for a good nights sleep. :arch

    By the way before you guys start jumping to conclusions, that's the name of my air mattress. :D


    Doris on the other hand had other ideas :eek1 and after a while all she wanted to do was go down on me.

    She had obviously received a prick or two unbeknownst to me. :ddog in fact as it turned out, she had taken one in the front & one in the back :eek1

    Despite my best efforts through the night .......................... by morning I was f*#ked :knary


    The thought of another big day's riding lay ahead, not to mention another night with Doris . :huh

    The final full day of my Flinders Classic VI adventure, I was determined to enjoy the fruits :scratch ....... well? ... anyway, of the famous Copley Bakery.

    Last year Trev appeared determined to have lunch at Arkaroola, then ride onto Copley :clap for afternoon tea.
