I went to Mogo.

  1. Me and a bunch of mates went (in cages unfortunately) and stayed in a holiday house in Batemans Bay for the long weekend. On Sunday we decided to take a trip out to historic Mogo, home of JoelridesCBR.

    What a beautiful little town!!!!! We got some awesome boiled lollies from the "Mogo Olde Timey Sweet Shop", I picked up a 1:6 scale Arlen Ness chopper model from the hobby shop there, and the GF picked up this 15" Grim Reaper figurine from the curio shop (can't remember the name of the shop). We also had pies and sausage rolls from the bakery there.

    By far the best bit was Mogo Zoo. Just a little place, but run by some of the nicest people, and with some of the cutest animals I've had the pleasure to meet. The White Lions are gorgeous, the Oriental Otters were incredible, Sumatran and Bengal tigers looking majestic, Jaguars, Leopards and Cervals, Syrian Brown Bears, Red Pandas.... I ended up taking over 230 photos in the space of an hour and a half...

    Mogo truly is gods country. Joel, look after your town, I want it to be just as nice when I come back for another visit (on the bike). I'll be sure to look you up next time...


    Mogo fooken rocks.

  2. It did seem like a nice place to visit and was in full swing on the Monday when we went through it again.

    Doing the Mad Mile on the bike (between Batemans Bay and Mogo) was verreh nice :).

  3. Oh, that's what I forgot to mention. The roads down that way are just beautiful. Joel, you wanna come up and work your magic on the Pacific Highway up here??? Lord knows it needs some attention (especially after last weekend).

  6. Hay, Mogo's not a bad place to fall in love with ya sister.

    I grew up in the Bay, so I know all the Mogo folk... and it's fairly true that the tree huggin hippies out there share the love amongst themselves. :LOL:
