It was decided that a good test for the posties would be to head out of Sydney, over the Blue Mountains and head out the back of Lithgow for an over-nighter. It was the middle of winter and would be epicly cold on a postie. This, we thought, was a good thing.

Fuelling up – all going according to plan, we should not have to fill up again!
Govett’s Leap – halfway across the Blue Mountains. Shot taken right on the lookout, just showing that you can blag a postie bike into any location.

Off-road trials – bush bashing. I was routinely able to lift the postie over fallen trees and continue on my way.
Off-road trials – speed.
Off-road trials – hill climbing.
