    This morning Dave and I met with the intention of trying a new section, well new to us anyway, of our favourite gravel track, Scarp Road. The weather was dull with a bit of thunder rolling around and it threatened a rain shower but apart from a few droplets we stayed dry. Ddin't get any pics but I did get to try out my new Contour Roam helmet cam.
    So, after a quick coffee we headed up North Spur Road then turned left onto Scarp. The wildlife must have known about the camera as we spotted a couple of baby wild pigs/wild boar on the left hand side of North Spur just as we turned on to Scarp. Then as we tried the Del Park Rd to North Spur section of Scarp we saw a couple of Quokka type animals scampering across the trail in front of us! A great ride but we missed Brian (exile730) who was having mechanical issues with one or two of his many many motorcycles. Oh to be wealthy! Anyway I'll try and post the videos so you can see the West Aussie wildlife. The pigs are quite hard to see but they are on the right hand side of the road just as we turn on to the gravel. The Quokkas are fairly easy to spot!

    Sorry, the little pigs are on the left hand side of the road as we turn right. Doh!
