The start of todays offroad adventure

Recently I have been thinking of how an ADV 150 would be a good bike for me but tracks like these rocky snarly ones tell me otherwise.
I would have to miss these types of tracks out if I got one

Its suddenly looking a bit different here

Now on the paved surface and this still shows as unpaved on the OSM so I guess not long been paved.
Along here I see a few offroad bikes that disappear down a track I was on yesterday

Adding more I missed out yesterday

Now to finish off the rocky track I was on yesterday afternoon and it looks like the offroad guys have been down here too going by the tyre tracks

All of a sudden some more of them come along

These guys all know how to ride their bikes very well and they were going some too.
I used to ride faster on my KLX 250 with its better suspension but no way would I have rode at their speed on this tricky rocky surface, one spill and you would hurt yourself

This is what you call a good turnout

We say goodbye and I carry on exploring more new tracks
IMG_9093.JPG
A few recent fires with some still smouldering

After riding through the dry forest its nice to see some greenery again

I see an ambulance stopped back on the 1184/4010 junction and sadly one of the offroad guys has come off on the road, really bad luck considering the skill these guys were displaying offroad
IMG_9100.JPG
I dont think his leg was broken so hopefully he will be out on the bike again soon.
It was a bit disappointing to see some of the guys riding on the road carrying their crash helmets though

Riding home and no work today on the Ping river embankment

Where is that "unknown" reservoir on the map Colin?


And I notice you didn't go up to the dam. Was there some reason why not ?
