    Shit! Sorry Jatz, next time I will check back here before I go.

    Nice to see you out and about, however briefly. I think you inspired Leeanne, as we stopped at Toad Hall for an icecream :D

    Yeah, it was a nice afternoon for a ride and an ice cream :yum: I thought that was your bikes parked at T.O.A.D. hall.

    Not enough gorse for "true" hard core.

    Wonder how the bimmer would handle Steep Rd or Cow Gully?



    I've only been riding in the rain recently :(

    Dont ride down that bank by the caretakers, you could end up endo'ing.
    4x4's have been using it so they have cut it out real steep to stop them.
    We just went round the bottom end of the wire, easy enough

    Meet me at work if the beemer is there and I will join you.
    Maungatap will be a challenge though, but thats why I bought the gs I spose.

    If boring silver Holden is there then just ride on by.

    does that work for you?

    I have his number, so will text him when we leave here. Happy to road it and leave Maungatap for another day when there is spare time for contingincies. If on KLR, then no worries.

    Edit, just saw Padmei has posted his number
