    10 hours away from home and just over 300Km of fantastic riding and great company.

    Gee, you were quick getting that lot uploaded Wayne. :huh

    I've only just got my pics and vids downloaded to the computer from the camera [work preparations for tomorrow interfered tonight].

    I will get some up in the next few days.

    Great day with a great group of riders, no heroes and no derro's, :clap

    Looking forward to the chance to do it again somewhere soon.

    Thanks for the RR.

    Early alarm for me in the morning so time I threw the off switch.

    Ock.

    But did you notice the Macdonalds sign has changed between photos.
    This could be due to the spooky southern hemispherical effects present in our area of the world.
