    Yep. Could have got up, no problem I reckon but not so sure about getting down with all me indicators, brake/clutch levers etc so walked the last bit.

    On reflection I would do it differently if I were to find myself there again: I would take my helmet off for the walk.

    The step ups ???
    That picture looks ok . Will I get my fat arse GS 1150 up there .
    I haven't been up there for 15 years. There used to be 3 or 4, 2ft step ups near the top. I won't even try if they are still there.

    Is the fire tower up there or is that on another hill ?

    A few years back killjoys poured concrete wheel tracks over the steps: you won't have any trouble, Garry. The old fire tower was burnt down in the big fires and has been replaced by a fully metal one that has access locked off.

    Saw a Subaru forester up there which should answer your question.

    Good to see a TU getting out there
