Geez, is that all I got!!!
Expected much more than that.

S'pose it's a quality over quantity issue. I applaud the quality.

Are you staying in Wagga Thursday Night?

What about Mark, what time for you coming up from Albury?

My mate Dave is on a road bike so he will stay on the tar, he will be at my place on Thursday night coming from South Coast.

Anybody got a route in their mind? dirt, tar(back roads)

If we leave on Friday where do we stop on Friday night? (we can go the long way)

I plan to stay in Wagga (Estella) thursday nite, so will be right to get away early friday. If your mate is sticking to the bitumen, I will probably bring the trumpy and ride with him. Which way is he coming up from the coast, if he is coming via the mountains we could meet up. I don't mind riding with BMW's occasionally.

He is coming from Nowra via Yass & hwy maybe via Harden & Coota for a change from the concrete

Ok so now we just wait for what Mark is doing and if there are any others.

At this stage, will aim to leave Albury at sparrow's fart on the Friday morning (there by 8am). That's providing I get the day off ...

Definitely a fan of the back roads - head NE or NW?

What about heading up towards Hillston, Lake Cargelligo, Condo ...

FCR ???

Haven't really looked to much into it... but the dates do suit me for a ride.

If I go, I might get away a day or two before, and take in as much dirt as humanly possible, and meet the group at the showgrounds.

BMW riders though...

Will think about a plan and get back to ya'll

Dobbo
Aparrently no body wants to ride with me on account, things tend to happen to others... ... sorry Ray & Gra!

It's alright. I wont be going. So no need for him to carry spare fuel for me. Smart arse!.

Has anyone found an appropriate photo / video for the bonnet emblem / geriatric gymnast?

I'm thinking of signing up for the APC Rally next year.

I also want / need to do a Stay Upright off road riding course. The idea of doing the rally has brought the need for some training to the fore, again.

Anyone interested in joining me in doing a course? It would be in Canberra. Three nights away. Day to travel to canberra, two days there, day home.

Before summer.

Offroad course, aimed at adventure riders or 2stroke dirt bikes?

Details Ray?

Going Ridin

The time has come.
Tomorrow I leave for an 8 day trip on the bike, it will be my longest trip to date. The knee is feeling pretty good and the weather is fantastic so I am really looking forward to it . It has now been around 9 months since the accident and almost 4 months since the operation so I am really overdue for a decent ride.
I will try and take a heap of photos and do a ride report when i return .
