Good to see your posts again Ian - great set of shots on the Kookaburra ride. This one looks like a good trip into the bush too. Odd place to find the boys in blue - what took them up that way? I spent years up in the sticks on the bikes and never saw police up there.

Thanks Peter. I've been a bit busy travelling and such, so let the blog slide. Bago is a good ride, it climbs quickly and the view is exceptional. The local coppers were checking for unrego'd bikes and dumped cars. Nice blokes and easy to talk too. Cheers.

Cheers Ian.I haven't been up to Bago before, but will try and make it on my next trip down. Have you been up to the summit of Banda recently? I went up there as a kid when it the trig station was used - the view was amazing. The road seems to be closed now with no plans to fix it (last year). Even spokes trail seems to be weeded over (or I missed the turn).

Bago is an easy one. Banda not so easy the way I usually go. The road to Banda has been gated and locked by NAT PARKS for many years now. I walked almost to the top recently but ran out of light. I will do it again though. Spokes is gated and locked as well. Has been for 20 years now. My latest post shows the sign and gate. Contact me if you wish to join a ride one day.

It seems like only a few years ago I was up at Spokes, but I guess time flies. I would't mind a walk up Banda if it was able to be done. I haven't ridden a dirt bike in years unfortunately. A few mates up here are into them (usually in hospital from falling though lol). I'd love to get back on 'em but am a bit wary of injury. Its a shame (almost a crime) NP has locked all these places away. That nasty fire years back (which Werrikimbe still shows the scars of) shows of their lack of proper burning practise. I'll drop you a line when I make it back down.
