    Hey Wasca, well, good question mate. It's entirely up to you.
    Now MOST of the route, should be similar to the Snail Trails ride at Woodford. But there may be some sections which could be a bit tricky.

    The areas where we do the skills practice are accessible from the main tracks, so I'd say you should be right on the KLR, even if you have to avoid a few bits.

    Note to all: Big bikes like Wasca's should only come along if the riders are fairly capable already. This ride is called 'Enduro' for a reason! :lol3 It's not really a Snail Trail ride, although the same principles of help available, slow and careful apply.

    The Grid so far:

    Strumm - Lead wobbler
    Sandy - Lolly wobbler
    B1 - Wobbly cameraman
    mGary - Wobbly sweep/helper
    Melissa - demonstrator and helper
    Kirstie - chief catering officer
    Scott - Helper
    Young-gun-640 - Observer, rookie cameraman

    Awesome, great to see some interest in this ride.
    If anyone would like to donate for Mel, but can't make the ride, just PM me and we'll work something out. I know Mel will really appreciate any support she can get.

    Once you've done this ride, you can feel more comfortable doing stuff like this:


    Our Easter ride, 4 days of heaven on a stick!

    And then you get to deal with this sort of problem on multi-day rides. Tough, I know... :lol3

    I cant make it, that will be around the same time I go under the knife to get the knee repaired. However, provided I can drive, I might rock up to the BBQ part.

    No worries Rod.

    For anyone who's not yet met Mel, here is a video B1 made of her training for the Finke.
    She's an inspiring young lady, and really deserving of our support and encouragement!
