Last weekend we headed to Wandiligong (it’s near Bright) for a couple of days of moto action, no 4×4s this time around just 13 bikes up in the hills, as it turns out we still had a bit of waiting around the first day… Moorey somehow got a nail in his tire way up on the really gnarly track that we couldn’t get up!
Rav flatted also but we didn’t have any way of getting the wheel off so he rode it flat all day, it didn’t slow him down at all, though he wasn’t launching his usual 30 foot into the air.
We didn’t end up covering all that many K’s the first day, we mucked around some climbs on this clear section of a fairly steep hill for ages (the pic with us all standing around is the peanut gallery laughing and jeering someone attempting the climb, it was good fun.
Once we got home, we showered up, grabbed a beer and tended to the bikes before heading to the pub down the road, we were all pretty fired up after a great days riding and the beers were flowing thick and fast, we necked a couple of bottles of vino over some shanks and a palma, then got straight back into it… not sure what it was but we were asked to leave at about 9 o’clock…
We were talking a lot of non-sense as per usual, there was the small matter of a couple of boys breaking into a slight wrestle in the bar and I may have backed up to one of the other patrons sitting at a table, thinking I’d found a nice quite corner to gas off in, not realising my bum was hovering just over her left shoulder when I let rip.
Anyway we slid down a couple of quiet ones back at the “Wreck Room” at our accommodation, nothing much happened apart from the submission wrestling comp.
Woke up surprisingly fresh the next day, zipped into the bakery in Bright for breaky ready for another big days riding, we were down to 9 riders after Rav’s brother woke up with a weird fluid goiter on his back after the wrestling the night before and the Albury boys had headed home the night before.
We hit some more of what we’d done the previous day before lunch, finding some great sections then headed Murtleford after a spot of lunch at Bright on the way through.
In a pine tree block just outside of Murtleford he hit some trails that Large knows really well, they were bloody awesome, a great mix of everything from winding fast stuff where you can slide your bike around to ready tight technical single track.
We had such an awesome time over the 2 days I think I actually was on a downer on Tuesday due to being on such a natural high all weekend… I didn’t think that was possible?
