Default Easter ride anyone?

My best mate has gone away until after Easter, so no riding mate.

Wondering if anyone want to go on a ride on Easter Sunday or Monday out of Brisbane

I am on the southside, so a trip down through Lions Rd, Boonah etc etc would be great.
I am a snail trail type rider, on a 92 KLR650 Tengai, so not after enduro type riding, just a day out, stop for a coffee somewhere, etc etc. dirt, bitumen I don't care. just want to get out of the house but not ride totally alone.

Any takers?

Yeh, its a nice ride. We usually stop at Ripples on the Creek, just this side of Kyogle for a coffee, lunch etc.

Sunday would be good with me. I just tell the mrs when I am going and she puts up with it!.

One taker so far for Sunday.

Meet at the Shell Servo on Beaudesert Rd Calamvale at 8am.

Or if you are further south, we can catch up at Beaudesert MacDonalds.

Who is up for it?

Lions Rd etc.

Pretty easy ride, would be good for beginners etc.

Great guys.

My plan is.
Shell Servo 8am kick off 8.15 or when everyone is fueled and ready.
Stop at Beaudesert for a coffee/snack at one of the cafes.
Head down the Lions Rd, stop at Ripples on the Creek (Almost in Kyogle) for lunch.
Maybe head up to Nimbim to look at the hippies

Flexible on route home, if anyone knows some interesting not to hard trails happy to follow, or we come back up the summerland way

https://g.co/maps/4tj5r
have a look at this for a route.

I could think of better things to do than look at the oxygen thieves from Nimbin..... maybe cause I see to much of them and see where my taxes go.... but dont let me spoil a good ride.

No problem.

Have a look at www.eaglemike.com for thr doohickey and other stuff.

Get the one with the torsion spring.

I have the flywheel puller and spanner if you want a hand doing it. It is pretty simple.
