Adventure Rally 2019

JNR and myself loaded up the bikes and camping gear and headed down to Mornington Mills for the 32nd Adventure Rally on Saturday arvo.
We setup camp and got the fire pit blazing. JNR proudly bought it from Bunnings for $40.
We watched as the kids all left from the family day and waited for the influx of Crusty’s and PAR riders, but it wasn’t to be. Not sure what happened to the guys that were coming but good old Eddie rolled in at the last minute and kept us company. We did meet two PAR guys and had a few laughs with them on Sunday.
Plenty of people had fires going this year which made the night a lot more enjoyable.
Chef JNR cooked up a couple of burgers over the fire and I supplied a couple of Creeping Reaper snags. I had warned JNR these were pretty special with a hell of a kick. He didn’t seem convinced until just after his first bite. They supplied the warmth for the rest of the night.
Few beers and tall stories then we hit our swags. Pretty warm in mine as it had reverse cycle and luckily there was no rain.
We were up nice and early for the riders briefing and prize draw. Looks like there was only 130 odd riders so chances of getting a prize was pretty good. Oh yeah, Bunga you won a tyre but weren’t there to collect so it went to the next person. Damn shame.
First loop was about 65km and the second was 45km long. Lots of new tracks due to the logging and fires. It was pretty cold on the hands early on but all good once we warmed up.
JNR took off and I kept a steady pass early on. Eddie left us for dead at the start.
After the lunch Chef JNR cooked us we took off and rode most of the second loop with a bunch of young pommy guys. Great fun and awesome tracks. I binned it near the end chasing one of the poms so took it a bit easier from there.
We were on the road before 3 heading home. Perfect conditions, no dust or heat, great tracks and no chopper this year. Hopefully next year the numbers get back up. Two other events were in on this weekend so that’s hurt them.

Thanks for a great weekend Antt & Eddie conditions were perfect & the loops were %200 better than last year so we’ll done to T & E club.

And as for getting up early for the riders meeting pffft both of us had to go to the toilet side by side & let go of some chilly sausage from the night before & my wingman had to double flush & bail out & leave me with his stench & blame, I was just praying that no one was gonna walk in as I was walking out :( and Antt is over at the car having a chuckle.

Ps for those who go camping with Antt put your swag far far away cause I think a trumpet is quieter than his arse.

See you out there soon.
