Hi Charlie,

Sounds good. We meet at the Central Market Entrance to Coles/News Agent. Next Monday will be fine @ 12:30. Everyone is welcome.

Cheers Willis

G'day Willis, maybe you were in the wrong place, I was in the north east corner of the markets by the Coles part of the building,

(Coles Corner of Central Markets)
specifically, at the Mallacca Corner, (across the aisle from the Russian Stall, hmmm, Piroshki!) and I had a Poh pia, and a bowl of Laksa, I was there for about a half hour, and by 1300hrs I decided to make with the long distance asthma attack, (far koff).
But I will see you'all there at 12:30,
Central Market Entrance to Coles/News Agent. Monday @ 12:30., but I'm not waiting past 12:37, between Coles and Newsagent, coz then I'm gonna walk south to the x intersection, turn right, walk past the Gourmet Sausage ( but not )stall away from Ed Harry's men Swear(on the left), go out of the "mall" part (terrazzo floor, low ceiling) into the Central Market proper,(bitumen floor, high ceiling) then straight away turn right/north along the wall passing a jeweller/pawn shop, passing a two dollar stall/shop and stopping at Mallacca Corner, getting there by 1 and 1/2 minutes later, I walk slowly.

THE PARKING TICKET

I went to the Central Market the other day, and I was in there for only about five minutes. When I came out, nearby there was a brown bomber writing a parking ticket.

So I went up to him and said, "Come on, mate, how about giving a guy a break?" He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

So I called him a pencil-necked Nazi. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for worn tires!

So I called him a piece of garbage. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket!

This went on for about 20 minutes... The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
I didn't care. My bike was parked around the corner.

Yep, that's about where we'll meet, across the aisle from the Russian place is Mallaca corner, I remember meeting Willis at the servo near the Norton Summit Rd a couple of months ago, and I've described myself above, and you're 6'6" with black spiky hair right? Seeya there, somewhere, between the MC and Ruskie places, in the chairs there.

03/03/08 to 07/03/08 - Whatcha doin?

Hey Croweaters, what are you lot doing for the above week? I have a cunning plan! It involves a visit to Lake Gairdener (see www.dlra.org.au). We are entering SA via Coombah on the Silver City hwy, then Loch Lilly, Oakbank Outstation, Braemar, Peterborough, Pt Augusta, then it's arguable depending on timing which way we go. Any interest?
Regards,
Tom (expat croweater - go the doggies!)

Woo Hoo! Great Plan!

Tom! You're on the money!

Dogsbody and I just went through here the other week and I recommend you stay here and take their "Private Station Tracks" through to Lake Gairdner:

http://www.mtive.com.au/

They have a heap of nice rooms available there but I would suggest booking one early because I think this is a popular base for the Salt Lake Racing fraternity.

I'd love to be up there for that week, but it seems like way too far ahead to confirm plans for me.

I never know what the next corner presents to me?

I reckon it's a great idea though and the Gawler Ranges is a must see!

Also did anyone go to or in the 24hour reliability trial around Eudunda?

Anyone for beers and gum-flapping?

Another great Ride Report posted by MasterBrewer:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=5777973#post5777973

How about another 'beer night' and 'bonding session' at the Avoca Hotel next Thursday night at around 7pm for those who can make it.

Those who wanna eat can. For those that think eating takes up valuable drinking time can just drink and flap gums.

See you there. Look forward to hearing all about your ride.

Cheers,

Pete

Yeah! I'm sorry I missed the Morgan ride. I was around the place that weekend too, just not vigilant enough to spot mention of it on the site here.

Nice country out there. Pity I missed it. Anyway, next time.

See you at The Avoca - Thursday night "6th" (thanks for adding the date!) at around 7pm
