    Likely to be me, Nev - square BM top box on it?
    I were just out and about running errands - going to four different Bunnings stores to find the right colour silcone to match the wall tiles....

    Cheers

    Better off going to a specialist tile supplier as they will be more likely to have all the colours in stock and they will have a better turn over. That coloured silicone tends not to have a great shelf life.

    Spotted in Kuranda this afternoon - blue S10 with silver ally panniers. Either lost or exploring, and no doubt puzzled that the place resembled a ghost town. All the tourists leave by around 3pm due to bus, train and skyrail schedules. Waved at him/her and was going to try to catch up to see if I could offer any local knowledge but lost sight of him.

    Few Saturdays ago there was a group of Adventure bikes stopped in Benambra.

    Anyone from here?

    That sounds about right. :thumb

    We didn't get much frost at Walwa but the fog was pretty thick.

    Three of us went past - two mates on BMW F700GS and me on the 1200GSA.

    Awesome weekend riding - weather was almost perfect.

    Yep, I think I remember spotting you blokes. We came up Hotham from Bright and had some nervous moments on the pure ice for about a kilometre half a kilometre Hotham side of CRB Hill.

    The day was pretty fantastic. Did you do Shelly then Gibb range road or Tintaldra then Nariel Valley from Walwa to Benambra?

    Just some pretty easy touring so we left Walwa and then rode to Omeo via Nariel Valley and then back to Walwa again via Omeo Highway.

    Temperatures got down to around 4° for us so no worries with the ice - the afternoon riding was almost perfect.
