    Good little ride the Sutherlands hut track.A fair while ago we went right through to the rangers station heading south on a collection of Z440s,Cb360s and of course an ex cop CB750.As the attached picture shows the step uphill behind the hutt was admittedly a bit of a mission

    Bassman your sortie is part of the Cnut Hill folklore, and maybe a big rope was involved?
    And reputedly a BMW sponsored rider has ridden a big GS up.

    Solo’d out here a few weekends ago. Fun ride in with a few challenging bits. Track is in fairly good condition, although looks to have maybe regraded a bit based on old videos of it. The Hut is getting a bit of a make over too (new paint and fire place) which might make it a bit more comfortable to stay at.
