A workmate & myself went for a ride this pass week. Left on Easter Saturday & returned the following Friday. This report will be more photos than commentary (...I'm a lazy bastard & can't be bothered writing ) Will be adding video as it comes to hand (editing, uploading, lazyness, etc ) plus more photos once I get them off Stewart. Stewart & Pip (his hairy daughter ) are riding a GS1150 & I'm on my 800XC. I met up with Stew at Moss Vale in the southern highlands of NSW. From there we headed to Goulburn than west north west to Crookwell, Bigga, Wyangala Dam, Woodstock & Bathurst. We made our first nights camp on the Bathurst side of the Bridle track. Sunset Moon rise Sunrise ...and away we go... <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ZnjdXmQsUBA?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/-rKwaC7XiDY?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/KGC36GHi9mk?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> <IFRAME height=720 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5-pA30f-mVU?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=960 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> Once we reached Hill End we headed for Mudgee, Gulgong, Merriwa & the back way to Scone. Merriwa Scone road <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/XXz_jXAIVd4?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> Made our second nights campsite at Gundy, east of Scone In the morning we took the back roads through the Hunter Valley north to Nundle & on to Tamworth. <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UhPepsulYzU?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> From Tamworth we headed north to Barraba then north east to Bundarra & on to Glen Innes. About 30km out of Glen Innes we made camp on the Old Grafton road. ( ... notice how Stew & Pip dress the same. ) Next morning we were headed for Grafton Memorial to the fallen of WW1 <IFRAME height=480 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ieUdwDXCDQQ?rel=0" frameBorder=0 width=853 allowfullscreen></IFRAME> Dalmorton This shot reminded me of the WW1 memorial, Poms & French against the Germans By the time we got to Grafton the Beemers boots were looking a bit tied New boots The tyre change used up a bit of the day so we headed south to camp at the Nymboida canoe centre In the morning we headed back to Grafton & followed the Clarence river to Lawrence... ...where we crossed over the river on the ferry... ( sugar cane in the back ground ) We then followed Lawrence road to Maclean & up the Pacific Hwy to Woodburn. From Woodburn it was onto Lismore & up to Nimbin Nimbin rocks We left Nimbin & headed west for Kyogle, then south to Casino & west again to Mallanganee where we made camp up at the lookout ( bantam roosters were running around wild ) Mt Warning ( Wollumbin ) in the distance From Mallanganee it was west to Tenterfield & onto the Bruxner Hwy which follows the Dumaresq River, the border between NSW & Qld ( cotton fields in the back ground ) We followed the Bruxner Hwy to just outside of Bonshaw then headed south on the Bonshaw Inverell road to... you guessed it, Inverell. From Inverell to Bingara, Barraba, Manilla, where I took a photo of this DNEPR "comrades" It was getting late in the day so we made a run for Bendemeer across the back country to get a cabin for the last night, Stew had stayed there before & his hairy daughter "Pip" was welcomed. ( it's hard traveling with a dog & finding accommodation ) This isn't the cabin, just handy parking for the night beside the cabin. Next morning it was a straight run home down the New England Hwy Tamworth, Murrurundi ( Stew & I parted ways here, He wanted to watch the sheepdog trails being held there & I was on a mission to get home ) Scone & Singleton. From Singleton it was onto the Putty road & home never did figure out how to ride like this? We covered around 3000km in seven days.
