Colin

Thanks for organising the ride and a good call to delay it a few weeks. Interesting tracks with a wide variety of conditions.

Challenging to find the access to the chain of granite outcrops that make up Mount Stirling but we saw them from every angle as well as Mount Caroline, Kokerbin Rock and Kwolyin Rock.

A good group comprising all BMW GS's.

The good feeling from the ride evaporated with Australia being defeated in the Rugby...may have to head out again tomorrow.

Very enjoyable ride and thanks to Colin for organising the ride.
The ride up was 11* with a heavy mist just starting to rise as we went up the scarp.
The ride was mainly on tar with about 30km of gravel,sand and mud.

Thanks to the other seven riders who made yesterday a success. conditions were almost perfect and the Kellerberrin Shire even rolled out the grader for us. Managed to have a couple of Jamie moments and lead from the rear/middle ( no offence intended Jamie, hope all is well with the NSW branch).
