    Well after 3 months off my bike with a knee reco and a loss of license ,i got a chance to get away by myself for a 2 day ride
    1 only went out to Urbanville for a quick ride and a camp in the pine forest
    And as is the way it rained on my parade :lol3

    After going down duck creek rd , i pulled into Rathdownie as it started to piss down so i ducked for cover and looked west and it was black

    my plan was to fumble my way to woodenbong trying out a few side rd's but i thought stuff it ...soon as the rain broke i made way for the pub

    I got the Crown hotel about 4pm and went inside to see Darrel ...Got a chance for him to make me larf again with 1 of his storys and i downed 3 schooners ...darrel told me i was mad to head into the forest with the storms hanging round ....But i was here now so no turning back .

    I grabbed a 6er off gold stubbies and a 4 pack of JD cans and i was set
    ripped over to the shop and grabbed my bag of ice

    off toward taloom falls ...got there and the crossing had a rd closed sign on it ....luck i went round that over the crossing and off into the forest

    I found an old wood cutters shed .. there everywhere in there
    and made camp under the tin ..nothing but me the cow shit and tree's :clap:freaky
    home for tonight

    there was some old 44's cut in half so i made a fire and cracked me first stubbie

    my pannier come esky .. still had ice in the morning

    I forgot me bloody fork didnt i .. but i worked my way round it
    tried the 10mm first but to small to scoop with so i swapped out to a 12mm:lol3

    yes thanks guys .. it was just good to be out on the bike .....seen a few guys heading out on a trip just lone rider's .... always good to wave and feel the companionship even tho your alone

    The main idea was to test out my bike and the mods i have done to it over the last 3 months while off the bike ... all went well with no issue's and great to have a charge point to charge my phone when using the music player on it

    Just me and the whip birds and some cool tunes around the camp fire
    think i rolled into bed at about 11.30 after i drank all my piss :freaky
