    If you go to Maldon-mt tarangower. Go to the kangaroo hotel (fountain st) ride to the end of the street around the right side of the water tank and take the track that says fire access. It will take you straight to the top of mt tarangower. Also heaps of tracks in muckford reserve Sth west of Maldon. Have fun. I did last weekend in the same area.

    Hey MB, didn't know you used to ride with SolErzenberg? I'm the current owner of his original 625SXC, maybe I should bring it out so MacMan & I can wax lyrical about the old LC4 KTMs>

    Cheers,

    Michael

    No wonder you work at a KTM Dealer :rofl

    ................ and just when Sol has gone quiet after being taken out by a low flying kangaroo (literally 8ft in the air, chest height standing on the pegs :zilla :p3rry ) at Flinders a few of years ago,

    ........ really looking forward to our ride now :hack :lol3

    Sol today :jkam

    Enjoy Kiz, take care and we might see you in a week or so at Robbo. The gate won't be locked, just clipped, so it doesn't matter what time you get there. Say g'day to MB, he's given us the flick.

    On the way past The Cascades, Metcalfe.

    I'm sure they'd be roaring with plenty of water flowing.

    Just in case there are any S.A. riders following MB's thread, that shiny reflective stuff is called water!
