The Dish Run.... Parkes and Yass 3 Days

Post by 1coolbanana » Fri Oct 11, 2019 11:03 am

Day 1

Rob was organising a ride and since I hadnt been for so long for various reasons, this was perfect
So Rob , Chad and I met up in Cowra.

Well, it hasnt rained in months, until now!
Started out with a cold and wet run up the Bells Line to meet up with a mate at MtVic and the weather cleared heading west towards Cowra to meet up with another friend (yes I have 2!)

Some great riding and new tracks thanks to Rob

Headed to our motel in Parkes after a big day where the hotel owner decided to rip us off.
Scum bag liar he was to.

Day 2

Started out warm and balmy at about 23 degrees.....but strange things were looming just around the corner!

A dust storm starting in the distance

Well that sucked.
Right in the worst of it was about 1.5 metres visibility and we rode following the grass edge at 10 kmh, its all we could see :shock:

Then it rained.............
Rained mud for a while, then it just rained for the rest of the day heading to Yass

Rode into Yass knackered, nice motel, highly recommended :thumb:
Met up with a mate from Yass and had a great night, good feed and great company :yo:

Nice report. Looking for a good 3 day run............do you have a map/track of the route you took? And the name of the Hotel to avoid in Parkes :)

Cheers,

Geoff

Hi Geoff

Parkview Motor Inn is the one to avoid.

Sorry, I dont have the tracks as I was a follower this time :?

To get to Cowra, I just wing it as I know the area.
Home from Taralga is up Gerrong and some forests up to Duckmaloi.

Cheers
