    CMC have pods you can try on. I have them and like the comfort.
    I had Asterix before and they were uncomfortable after a few hours.

    I could probably add that twice they took the weight of an AT without any crush injuries in low side spills.

    Can anyone enlighten me on what the story is about Wadbilliga/Bourke's Rd atm?
    Was at either end recently and noticed the National park signs about closure/ fines etc.
    Locals I bumped into at the Tuross turnoff said NP is pretty anal about keeping people out using cameras and such
    Any insights what the go is?

    Thanks for the recommendation and lead, Oz, I'll head over and give the Pods a test for fit and comfort.

    Can anyone confirm if the 'short' way between Captains Flat and Hoskinstown (as per attached) is open and doable for a solo rider of average abilities and tyres? Thinking of incorporating it in a little loop tomorrow morning, if anyone's keen. Untitled.jpg

    My brother in law drove his car though there about 3weeks ago and has no mail/ fines ect and I know 5 people who have been up on bikes. They are just getting around to putting up road name signs but still have not cleared any drains or done road works.

    About 2.10pm (Sunday 27 December 2020) Barton Highway, Jeir, near Murrumbateman
    36-year-old female driver was subjected to a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result
    taken to Yass Police Station, where she allegedly returned a breath analysis reading of 0.416.

    And that was after she had apparently inadvertently parked in the table drain to make it easier for them to find her

    Well into the death zone.

    Years ago an AFP friend told me about a middle-aged spirits drinker who they only tested because he was a bit "lippy".

    He blew the highest recorded to that time at 0.38, yet otherwise seemed unaffected.

    Do you just leave your bike there and drive out to take photos?

    I lost most of winter and spring through a crazy stretch of work - no time for anything else - have been trying to make it up since then ...

    Finding the Garmin InReach really changes the dynamic re' riding alone 'safely' ...
