A few pedal assisted climbs to get to the top of this one, but worth it for the veiw and the knuckle chilling decent!!!

Some more pics of the round trip, 100km in total.
1.4 litres of gas

It was an awesome spring morning, and the gravel roads were calling.
A full tank of gas and a sparse pack of tools.
The thundering roar of a drilled out two stroke baffle as I dropped the clutch at the top of the drive and the bike sprung into life.
The priceless looks of the local motorbike gang filling up at the servo.
The lactic acid brun in the legs as I pedal assisted the first breathtaking climb.
The panoramic freedom as I got to the top.
Adreniline rushed, heart pounding, knuckel chilling, snaking twisting decent.
The overwhelming joy of returning home bike and self intact!!
