    Yep, great time of year! (Also the lawn growth slows down, so less mowing, more moto time!)

    Shit Kezza that’s no good mate. Life does that sometimes. Hope all is okay.
    I’m actually hoping to head along for this years OCR, first one for me. Need to get more.
    Hopefully do another couple little rides before then.
    If any others are heading past or anywhere near Charters Towers please let me know.
    I’d be happy to tag along. cheers.

    Talked to Magurk ( from up Weipa way) today, just a general chat about OCR, but we did sort of agree on a rough start date of 30th of July give or take a day or so.
    This works for Magurk and myself and Dylan (the Barbie bike) and I believe DD also will ready to roll then.
    What departure date do you other FNQ/NQ/WQ folks have in mind?

    30th works for me. Planning to be in T/ville in the week before, fit tyres & should be ready to roll. Can either ride up there or meet somewhere

    I was looking to the 4th or 5th of August, leave constraints and the like
    I will maybe catch you up, if we agree route and overnight places etc
    I am thinking of stopping for two nights some where on the way there - the big bridge at angleberoka or what ever its called area / place
    Also want to spend more time at Maree reading about Donald Campbell. Maybe do some research before hand and see if there is any more in the area

    There you go mate. A great litle tool know as snipping tool in Windows. Save the snippet to computer, upload to imgur then dowload to here. Sorry I am not coming on OCR but still stalking yas.
