    Beemer Downunder and Dirty Dennis arrived and we had a short but atmospheric journey to Collector and on to Goulburn in the drizzle.

    I put my Goretex gloves on and was still cold.
    The 'moments' from being blown over to 45 degrees did warm me up a bit tho

    Geez, Thrasher should call it the chookie rally. Where are the road bikes and sidecars. When I first went back in 94 there were heaps of road bikes. Struth I even made it in on my Z1R (without a chair), having said that the posties ruled.

    Still had a ball and looking forward to getting back there again.

    Looks like plenty rocked up. Looks like it was quite tame, this year.
