Over a period of a year or so, my mate had decided it was time to get an adventure bike. I was in the market for another bike too after a stint of drifting and circuit racing in cars. I had my eye on WR250Rs from back when I was looking at bikes, so we decided with all the riding we would be doing together, we would get the same bike for interchangeability of parts etc. I ended up with a black 2010 and my mate got a blue 2009. Over a number of months, goodies were purchased and fitted (check my build log here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=678192) and we headed off on a couple of short rides. The moons finally aligned for our first "adventure ride". I geared up and left my house in the morning for work: Nice place to hold my servo bought lunch: between the screen and bars: Finished work at 12pm and was all geared up and ready to go: Headed out toward Imbil with a quick stop: Michel had a bug in his helmet and I had one in my eye! Through Imbil and onto Bella Creek Road: First rest stop was the first of our little water crossings: On through Kingham which is a deer farm, some of the deer: Out onto Kilkoy Murgon road for an awesomely fast blast: Quick stop along the way: Fuel and redbull stop in Murgon: Checked out my old digs in Cloyna: Then up Cobb Hill for a nice little detour, great little bit of riding and sweet views: Shadows were starting to get long along the way to our camp site: Our camp spot for the night, a free camp area off the side of the road: Some great camp food, a great fire and some not so great cheap Port for me..... my belly paid for it in the morning: Waking up fresh as a daisy the next morning.......or not so much: Our camp in the morning, time for coffee: All packed up: The first track of the morning was an absolute cracker, LOVED it. A lot of burning off happening around the place: Interesting spot: We headed off on a pretty knarly little uphill side track with brilliant rewards: From here, cruising along, I came across two Dingo. They are in these pics somewhere, don't ask me where: Pulled in for morning tea at the end of the track. Bit of bitumen then on to Running Creek Road toward Kilkivan: Another awesome track that one was too! Into Kilkivan, but blasted straight through: Saw some sights, loved Michaels comments about this one "There was nothing here except a sign, no wonder everyone moved to the site with all the buildings!" On the track toward the Chimney we had come to see: A goat in here somewhere: Checked out the sights of the Chimney: From here, the maps said that we could keep going on to our next section, again a great section of track: Until you get to this: We did a bit of exploring of the tracks to try and find a way around it, some slow turning around caused this : Its funny how long someone will leave their bike on it's side while you get our your camera! Happened to Michael again here, but no photo evidence, getting off the bike while on its side stand, just went over! Did a good recheck of the maps here to see what would be the best option, back into Kilkivan and around to a different track that would take us through. Coming back down from up there, Mick had another tumble, on a steep rocky downhill section, his front washed out and he went over. No damage to himself, a few scratches on the tank and an awesome McGuyver fix on a brocken strap on his back pack: So around we went and came through a great National Park section: Through forestry areas: I was not too confident in the road choices etc, but we were headed at least in the right direction. Through Gallongowan: The firetower: I thought I knew where to go from here, but I still got us a bit lost. We ended up back on the Kilkoy Murgon road. We decided to just take the Kingham-Bella Creek Road back through which we had done the previous day: Getting late, one last water crossing: Just past here, my new iPhone decided to fly out of my tank bag, just because I left the top open....how rude! Luckily it was not damaged one little bit. Not bad for a 70kph off onto gravel and rocks! Found it just off on the rocks beside where Michael is standing, BTW all pics were taken with my iPhone and this one was just after it had it's big off! Into Imbil, feeling pretty weary with a last stretch of Bitumen to get us home. So, that is it. Great ride with a great mate. I am so happy to have a really close mate (we have been friends since we were toddlers) to do all my riding with now, much better than the Solo adventures I am used to. All up we did about 600KM over the two days. I hope you enjoyed reading. Michael should be along soon to add a Video if he ever edits the damn footage!
