October ride to Binna Burra with extra's

Another great ride in October to Binna Burra and beyond. We again enjoyed the company of some new riders ( Di Walton,  and bikes as we meandered a few hundred kms around the great scenic and twistie hinterland roads.

we welcomed Di ,as a passenger on Daves BIG new Indian, also Doug and Phil
Prior to others arriving I met up with our newly form Gateway 4WD club who were on their way to Bribie Island for a bit of off-roading" and they though it funny to put a snatch strap onto my bike and pull me along .....ok so they have more wheels than we do but managed to convince them not to.:) 

So we headed with 20 bikes in tow and picked up a few on the way for our 209km rides with many obligatory coffee and food stops.

Its always a great sound as we roar out of Gateway then attack the boring S.E freeway, oh well there has to be some effort for the amazing reward we get.

So it was a run down the freeway and across to Belmont rd via Mt Nathan for the run up to Binna Burra , the other way round.

We enjoy a great morning tea with awesome views at the Binna Burra Cafe ...we enjoyed a chin-wag and some great food.

Then it was back down the mountain , skirting Canungra and headed up the steep Heni Roberts drive stopping at a look out on Nth Tamborine for a photo opportunity....what a good looking bunch of bikers :)

whats it with men and bikes..they just love them ..even designing wind deflectors in cardboard..well done Des
I think Brenton likes me ...the boys were watching some para-gliders ride the thermals

....But trying to get a group photo is like herding cats 

Mt Tamborine was celebrating some form of scarecrow festival so we were entertained as we road to the spice of life for lunch with all the variety of stuffed characters ...and found the biggest when we had lunch ...Paul and Phil wondered what the fuss was sitting next to this stuffed green hulk.

So gradually everyone left to find their own exciting way home after a great days riding in the great South East with some awesome rides... already looking forward to our next ride with the Band of Bikers.

Check out the extended split screen video of our ride up Beachmont Rd chasing one of our support vehicles then onto Binna Burra.
