QP on Ten now, how are the inmates down the island going?
Any juicy gossip? If not, make something up!


Where are we again?

Hi Pete,
Great weather the last two days - I won't mention Thursday.
Juicy gossip for everyone - due to excessive tyre wear caused by the new surface the MotoGP race has been reduced by one lap and there is a compulsory pit stop to change tyres/bike.
Should make for an interesting race.

great event, good race spoilt by Marquez's inexperience.
I just helped some poor chick on her L plates that dropped her brand new CBR 250 on the grass, in the car park in front of at least 500 people...... how embarrassment

The word was Lorenzo was going to pit on lap nine but for whatever reason he didn't pit until lap ten.

Marquez may have been riding around repeating to himself "I must come in one lap after Lorenzo, I must come in one lap after Lorenzo........"

So I guess that makes it Lorenzo's fault

Did you get her phone number?

And I just saw that those bikes are only $5k ride away? Makes the DR look like a rip off.

After Wee Jasper, on to Yass. I thought about trying to find Hunter Greyghost (Baza), but I really had to make some miles.

Bells Line of road to Brother in laws at Kurrajong Heights.
Next morning, up the Putty to Dungog.


Over to Nabiac to have a look at the National Motorcycle Museum http://www.nationalmotorcyclemuseum.com.au/
This gives me an idea for the salt lake in 2015...


Next cool treat at Long Flat.


Up the Oxley, Armidale, tried to get a room at the rather average Ebor pub, $100! No thanks I'll ride on. Nymbioda to Grafton at dark. Had a road house meal, then highway 1 to Byron Bay to overnight at the folks house.

Next day I missed the turn off to the Burringbah (don't how that happened), so after kicking myself over that, I did Maleny to Kenilworth to even up the tyre wear.


And had a beer to console myself.


Next stop was some lunch at Gunalda (should have dropped in on Old Man Muzz (Murray). But I about an hour away from home, and wanted to see the kids off the school bus.


That was that.

Trip route:
Day 1. Hervey Bay - Tenterfield


Day 2. Tenterfield - Sofala


Day 3. Sofala-Maffra


Day 4. Maffra - the Island


Day 8. Phillip Island - Shepparton


Day 9 Shep - Kurrajong Heights


Day 10. Kurrajong - Byron


Day 11. Byron - Home


All up around 5,400 km, didn't keep track of fuel of other expenses (couldn't really give a rats).

No GP this year. Other trails to blaze.

Pete

BTW Matty, I see you have the 660 Tenere. You could always go to the Island via the Flinders...just a thought.
if ya need a riding buddy

It looked to me a bit like Maquez was trying to push Lorenzo into some sort of speed limit or similar error for the lap nine exit.

When Lorenzo picked it and went the extra lap, Maquez lost the plot.

G'day Woop Woop. Fancy that - two Gympie boys and we both come to the same conclusion!

Obviously, it's gotta be fact.
