Brass monkey 2014

Did around a 700km ride over a couple days through some pretty cold conditions at times, low single digit temps, black ice around and plenty of grit on the roads, some areas we were riding the roads are shaded most of the day especially going up lindis pass.

Stopped here at a look out point on a road we call the pig route, a rider on a 250cc Suzuki had just crashed out minute before we arrived back down the hill as he had slid on some grit, my riding buddy had a bit of a laugh as this young guy had told his girl friend at a previous petrol station to be careful on these roads but he did not listen to his own advice, he was ok just his pride hurt and they managed to ride bike to rally site at brass monkey.



Got a unit at a place called Ranfurly, this is us ready to leave the unit to head to rally site on sat morning, not un common to get -10 Celcius frosts around here.


Photos at the rally site and I believe they say this is the biggest bonfire in the country and they also supply firewood and drums for all the riders who camp there.







When it freezes over they do ice curling here.


We did not stay at rally site overnight but decide to ride long way home over Lindas pass which was cold but fun.


Vid not the best with sun in eyes but was still a hoot of a ride.
