    The Redesdale Pub used to be a ripper. Great country pub food and staff. They used to get a heap of car clubs etc there every weekend. Then it went trendy, meals changed to tiny and expensive, and surprisingly clubs etc stopped going there.
    I cant understand why a pub in a country area thinks they can or should go yuppie.

    Hope the new owners get back to basics. I'll call in on one of our regulat trips to Echuca and check it out.
    MotoBean cafe in Malmsbury is an absolute winner with some beautiful classic bikes inside.

    G'day Michael, good to hear that my old 625SXC is going strong, that was a brilliant bike & certainly more comfortable to ride than my 690 !.

    It was absolutely glorious riding, apart from one incident. :deal

    But I always believed everything happens for a reason.

    If I didn't have to contend with this trying to climb Mt Macedon (which was the only incident by the way) :D .

    I wouldn't have turned around & found this little fella crossing the road :raabia
