    I haven't competed at the hill climb for a long time. It is a fun event.

    I was hoping to but I work away and had to go to Melbourne that day. I have an old IT250E that I would like to have a go at the hill with.

    On the way home yesterday I got blown off the road near Coleraine. The wonders of 4 seasons in a day!

    I stopped for a numb bum relief at Tahara . Good view of the Grampians. 20180413_135316.jpg

    Great riding,weather was good and the team was a happy bunch,nothing else to ask for.The western part of the state has so much to offer as far as riding is concerned.

    Looked like a good ride blokes :ricky , was driving into Horsham Bunnings & noticed a young fella from a distance at the last minute, checked the bike out when leaving & knew it was James Cook's DR250 :wave.
    Yes, awesome riding in this western area, I ride the McKenzie river track as its not far from home and all the surrounding back roads of the Grampians area.
    Good to see you young blokes are still out riding your bicycles :ricky:clap:imaposer.

    Sorry I missed you Slow,it has been a while.
    For anyone who has not done the McKenzie River it is a great ride,now would be a good time to do it before it rains.
    Larry and I did the ride a few years back,one of the rewarding rides we did (must give him a call to see how things are going).

    Buck shot = Steering dampener dialed to 8 :p3rry. Was out today riding & exploring the Grampians, some of the long back roads within the park have washed out & degraded over summer that they are single lane marble / ball bearing highways :dirtdog:evil:eek2

    I took three young bucks to The Pyrenees for their first hill experience this weekend. Day one was an easy ride with a bit of hills. Day two a short but rutted out ( thanks to 4WD and water) put two of them down. One broken radiator and a blinker. Arvo ride was supposed to be an easier ride around to Landsborough and back over the ridge track. My memory is a bit hazy.The ascent up to the top of the ridge was steep, rough and long. Luckily the newbie on the DRZis a 105 Kg bloke and he muscled it up there just fine. They were too sore to get out of bed this morning, so we packed up and went home. Kids these days!!!

    They wan to to try the Grampians next. Calling Tori: camp weekend please whenever you want,cause I am retired-ish as of Thursday.
