    First thing tomorrow (Sat) morning I'm riding (~180km) to Jerramungup to collect the pudding & then am riding up to Perth to attend a "gettin old" party, because

    Decibel (Froggy) is 50 ! :clap :clap :clap :freaky

    The pudding and I will be at Farrells cafe/rest in Vic Park by 8:30 (if we old fogies suvive the party[​IMG] ) having breakfast with a bunch of BMW riders. So if anyone wants to get hold of it to carry east in the next week or so, come on down!! Call me on 0417 981644 to confirm.

    If nobody collects it from Farrells I'll post a message here to say where I've left the pudding for collection.

    Hi guys - new to the forum. Had a call from Dave "Davo" Jones about this. I'm going across for our annual GTR meet in Tathra NSW next week (Monday 1st Oct) so can take it if required. Have a short history with the pudding - was at the Border run 2007:
    Me with the pudding

    And this is how it would be travelling

    I'll be going via Nullarbor, Port Augusta & on to East coast

    Cheers

    I left the Pudding with Bear (one of the instigators of it's travells) in Bicton, near Fremantle. I've sent an e-mail to Ausroba with contact details. Anyone else wants to put their hand up to carry it, post here or contact me to get Bear's contact details.

    As well as its little bag, the pudding is now (courtesy of Fred) packed in a proper calico steamed pudding wrap to help protect it.

    The Pudding is refreshed after its Safari sojourn with Fred,
    Thank You Fred.:clap :clap :clap

    It departs WA Monday morning heading eastwards, thanks to Rob Allart, on a some what more comfortable perch (a Kawa 1000 GT) to be delivered to PJ (aka Grandad) at Port Perie, who will deliver it to Spear Creek for the BMW SA rally the following weekend (5th/6th Oct).

    Anyone attending that rally and can take it on to the Moto GP the following weekend, please put your hand up. It's all yours!

    Otherwise, I will bring it back to the Island, then its up for grabs again.

    Bearing in mind the Pudding would like to be at the Kosi rally at Geehi 20/21st Oct.

    And I would like it to accompany Sally on the 15th of November.

    So there you go.

    PS Remeber the rules are simple

    The Pudding always travels on a motorcycle/sidecar/trike.

    And it will cost you 1c per k for the privilege, donated to the RFDS.
    NOTE When paying the RFDS, add Pudding to the comments box.

    Cheers

    Looks like I will bring the Pudding back from Spear Creek SA to the GP.

    Ill be at the Island from Thursday evening till Sunday morning, then ride home and watch the race on a big plasma tv.
    I'm staying in Ventor, my mobile no (if it works there. I foolishly got rid of my CDMA for the the new effing useless next3 generation or what ever they bloody call it) is 0427-358549.

    If people wont to see the Pudding what say we meet somewhere near the the north side of the entrance to the Expo?

    Anyone heading north for home (preferably some one who lives on or near the east coast in NSW/Qld) want to pick up the pudding and take it to the Kosi rally the next weekend?


    PS my RFDS receipt finnaly arrived today:clap

    Cheers

    If we can organise to get the Pudding picked up from the GP and either drop it off at your house and you then bring it to the Kosi, or take it to the Kosi and you can collect it from there.

    Sounds great Chris,
    what ever works out regarding the Pudding's travel arrangements will be fine. We will be heading off on the Friday morning for the Kosci rally. My number is 0423 021 378. SBSP was talking about going to PI, maybe he can bring it back?

    Got a day and time to go with that location? I wouldn't mind taking a gander at the pudding.

    It can also double as the compulsory advrider meetup for the weekend.
