    In April I will be riding with two mates from Canberra to Flinders Ranges on Gravel Surfers. From Flinders Ranges to the corner. Any you fellow riders got information on what the conditions should be like, especially road?

    Cheers

    Flying home Tuesday evening and the amount of roos on the road between Adelaide and Port Augusta I wont be riding overnight so I am not sure if I can get the old Kato to do 550ks By 10:30 Wednesday morning?

    I will either have to give it a miss or organize a different meeting point.

    Damn! :baldy Damn! :baldy Damn! :baldy Damn! :baldy

    Finally a ride with the SA boys that I'm just busting at the seams to do :wings AND a 'multiple-dayer' (just how I like them! :wink: )

    and I gotta work .... :fall

    Anyways! We'll catch up Thursday night and at least I can glean some of the pre-trip excitement off you guys over a few beers (or in my case 50% beer / 50% tears)

    A reminder to others who might have missed it:

    Avoca Hotel
    South Road Edwardstown

    Thursday Night 26th Feb

    7pm onwards - some drink, some eat, some eat and drink!

    See you there! :beer

    Some of us passed through at 9.30 am after a wet start from Stirling , and running the gauntlet of three hand held guns - wobbling around at 50 km/hr has its benefits sometimes.

    Hopefully they nicked some of the Skyline, Porsche and Classic rally guys, they were all out early.

    Blame Master Brewer for that - go on a ride with him, get promised there is no rain so you dont put knobbys on and BAAM busted fibula and dislocated ankle - plus the Cowell bakery was crap

    Then again Kym being the consumate team player busted his fibular too on the same trip in a show of solidarity - Thanks comrade:rofl

    I would find it very difficult to trust someone who misleads fellow riders like that. If MasterBrewer promises one thing and it turns out to be wrong then he should not be trusted by any of us again.

    I mean, how hard can it be to find a decent bakery - it's not like he hasn't done considerable market research.:dg

    It's just not on!

    I am the bakery specialist down this way, and will have to start training The Couger on the finer points, so he isnt embarrased in the future:lol3

    There's a little side trip out of Blinman, Johno, to some of the best pastry in SA, might have to drag Cougar there in May. It's a little bakery at Copley, just the other side of Leigh Creek South, where the pasties must be made by Angels they're that nice. It's only about 200 km round trip from Blinman, but if you buy an ice coffee as well, it makes it all worthwhile.:wink:

    Then again, the girl who runs the Blinman General Store makes her own pasties, only when it pleases her mind you, and they are a pretty welcome treat after a lap around the Public Access Route in the morning.

    Gets a little competitive when she only makes a few though. :turkish

    How's the limpin' going Jase, still kickin' ass?

    Suck up time, Jase :nod ...............you obviously haven't read this then:

    Worlds Fastest Man may attempt record at Lake Gairdner 2010 :wings

    I'm already in training ...................................... in my minds eye at least :lol3

    Remember the 'ol' crap bakery' saying: "you can lead a man to a bakery, but you can't make him eat shit" :poser



    OK, an amends offer: maybe a detour to the Stone Hut Bakery :dg along "The MB Way" to Blinman :wink:

    S. A. has a crap bakery????:huh Ye Gods man! What have you all been doing?
    I recommend a mass ride to the offending premises, insert baker into oven, set fire to premises, step back and enjoy.:clap
