  2. Guy's it's not looking to bad at this stage weather wise around 20c with showers, hoping this will change by the time sunday rolls around knee's crossed!

    Cheers Bruce
  3. i've done plenty of km's around thompson dam and walhalla, and i can tell you that if the road is wet, it's slippery as all hell. there's shady spots that dont dry for hours after it's cleared up, and if it's been windy, the road down to the dam is usually covered in debris like bark, branches, rocks, etc.

    so be careful down there!

    but the up side is there's only one policeman in the area, and he's based in Rawson.
  4. Sorry I can't make it, was keen on a run through those parts. :( Will catch you next Thursday.

    Bruce is leading peeps so it's guaranteed to be a good ride! Sign up now and receive a free Bruce bobble head pen!

  6. Let me think now........... No!

    And as for the French guy with the bobble head pen comment, I have a little gift for you I will give it to you the next time I see you :butt:

    Cheers Bruce
