    Nice vid, not sure on the first track, I always like to hear the bikes. Do you have GPX file for the ride?

    Thanks Mark,

    I really enjoyed the video and it bought back great memories of the 4 days fantastic riding we did. That lounge chair you ride got some pace up in parts.

    Can't wait to see a bit more

    Had it up to 140Km on the dirt on Sunday, that's a new record for me. :lol3

    I've got more footage of the Gympie rides I'll try and get something put together I'm going to be busy over the next few weeks with some big changes at work.

    Yeah but they didn't sound like a KTM or BMW so you wouldn't have liked it anyway. :D

    Getting there Dave. Visit the surgeon tomorrow for the 3 month review. Hopefully be able to take the bike for a spin around the block by the end of the month. (Nearly went today to get away from the squealing kids next door )

    Video is great Wasca!

    I'm heading up and around that area Thursday and Friday. Stopping at kilkivan overnight.

    Hopefully the water crossings are a bit lower than when i went up last week.

    Could not get through the last water crossing heading north on Monsidale road.

    :D

    Dougo,

    Water (or most of it, at least) would have got away pretty quickly, but you can probably expect some significant flood damage Widgee/Kilkivan general area, if not further south.
