Here is an option for a Brindabella ride, it is only around 70klms if you start at the intersection of Brindabella and Curries road.

Let us know what you think and also what time we should start? 9:00am? :woohoo:

Just in case we get any people taging along at the last minute, the meeting place has been confirmed at the corner of Curries rd and Brindabella rd about 380 metres after Brindabella rd turns to dirt at 9:00am Sunday 19th September.

Ended up being a perfect day, weather was spot on and it was great to have some company (Thanks Dan and Steve hope you both had a blast).

The only negative was my helmet cam didn't record a single piece of video :angry: and because I thought it was recording all day I didn't take many photos.

Great Ride Merretta - thanks for leading. I was looking forward to the video, I wanted to see the part where you pulled the 2&3 gear mono - that went for ages... :woohoo:


Had a ball and keen to go for more.

Good to meet you and Steve. thanks again

SOUNDS like you guys had a blast....i still think we should organise a DRZ400e.com meet day somewhere......in summer....so we can come from all over oz and meet up for the weekend......but we need some good riding spots....so we can camp out and also have access for two wheel drive cars......im from sydney and if the ride you guys had today was organised a couple weeks before i would have come for sure.. :S

No worries Daz
I saw on the other post you and Wayno had some dates picked out to keep in mind

Theres heaps of camping areas around the Brindies where this ride was...I reckon to camp at the cotter river as its easy access for 2 wheel drive cars.

I reckon I could try and talk Merretta into leading a ride around - just depends on what he's got going on over these dates.

cheers

Mate it was prob grade 2 maybe 3 stuff

Both Steve and me are beginner/intermediate as we have gotten of the road bikes and on the dirt. Merretta is the experienced rider... :angry:

Merretta is away this weekend but when he is back we'll get him to lead another - he has the etrex gps and knows his way around.
message me if you want to go riding

Hi Guys,

I am around this weekend but not next weekend if you have any plans count me in.

Also Scott the tracks we went on would be good for a beginner/intermediate as there are no tricky logs to get over deep river crossing etc and no one is in a hurry to get home.

Hope someone is up for a ride this weekned :cheer:

Andrew.
