Tuesday 18th Central Coast - kato530

4 of us turned up at 9am and once michael "dropped the kids off at the pool" and did the necessary paperwork we were ready to ride....
I had an absolutely pristine, low hour MY13 RR300 to appraise so I was looking forward to establishing a relationship with another Italian mistress...
After several warm up laps of the tracks at the base of Hitchcocks our intrepid tour guide finally worked out the way UP the hill and geez did we get a workout...I haven't been up Hitchcocks since the turn of the century and I got a lesson in rock/root/rut relationships....Once we crested the top of Hitchcocks in a ball of sweat we had covered 8ks in about 1hour and 1/2. kwakas then had a blast on the Beta and I took his Sherco 250 for a run, before swapping back as Michael said the track was going to get a bit gnarly....

What followed was the usual excellent mixture of long, steep downhills, log crossings, creek crossings, criss crossings..(not lost, just looking for an elusive track...), dusty uphills, beautiful flowing ST, jungle tracks, rickety bridges and finally finishing up with a Whitemans descent.....and karn pulled the move of the day by getting 4 beers out of the car to wash away our dust.

with only 4 of us riding, we were able to get through all the technical/gnarly stuff pretty well, so we managed to get a bit over 60ks under the tyres in 7 hours of bush time.

Thanks Karn for posting the ride and kwakas for giving us such a wonderful mix of terrain and challenges, thanks Cloudy for shaking off your man flu and getting "on the pipe"

another fantastic day, felt like we were the only people on the planet at times -except for the creepy dude in the Hilux with what looked like a body in a bag..

Nice work Fella's
Michael, you are riding far too frequently, I'm jealous.
And by the way you are riding on the wrong days
I have had to work on nearly all of the days you plan to ride
Keep up the good work and I'm sure we will cross paths again soon
Cheers
Murph

Thanks to Micheal for leading another great ride with some new terrain and Cameron for sweeping.
I had a great day even while i was suffering from MANFLU
Hope we can do it all again next Wednesday or Thursday.
Cheers Karn.
