Default Putty Rd ride- update & photos

So 4 of us linked up today to do the famous Putty Rd run (Route shown below). Dernel and I met at 7 and then picked the other 2 up at Windsor. There is some picturesque landscape on this ride- shame I’m a bloody hopeless photographer. Some photos are attached- we could have taken some great ones at lookouts and stuff if we’d thought of it- next time hopefully. At one stage at about 1pm at Wollombi the temp hit 36 degrees Celsius (97 farking Fahrenheit)- too bloody hot!

There would have been more of us but last week was the Victory 15th anniversary ride from Sydney and Melbourne meeting in Eden, which a lot of Victory riders went to (maybe 60 or so?), which we couldn’t go to because of work commitments. We will do another Sydney ride in a month or so and there should be a good gathering for that.

Enjoy

Hahaha....that's the intent

Actually it's a damn shame we are worlds apart coz I reckon we would all have blast tearing the neighbourhood up together.

Saw a couple of dead wombats out on the road today.
Hate to hit one on a bike.

Nice ride today guys, thanks, I enjoyed a ocean swim afterwards and am just firing up the BBQ ... beer in hand.
Life is good! Why would you live elsewhere?
I believe n the US they have to garage their bikes for months at a time due to something called winter.
Now that would really suck.

Did you see that dead goanna on the road? I thought it was a snake at first, then I saw the legs. It must have been 3 feet long.
