    If Tony Kirby and Sidetrack Magazine hold special memories for you, mark this one on your calender.
    Meeting at Blinman in the Flinders Ranges Monday August 22.
    At this stage there will be Organised rides departing from Vic and Qld and perhaps other states
    Or you can just head there under your own steam.
    There'll be heaps of familiar faces from Sidetrack and a great chance to get together and celebrate the life of the legend that started it all

    Top idea, am organizing a little weekend ride down this way for a few of us that bumped into Tony from time to time.

    Thought I would name one of the more challenging (esp an a big BM:evil) climbs "SCHWANTZ" and therefore it would be the "Shove it up Schwantz Ride"

    Think TK would have a little chuckle :lol3

    Good luck with the Flinders ride, would love to be there,alas already booked my time away from the shiitters, hopefully get a great turnout and it becomes an annual event

    I'd love to as SideTrack is what got me into this, but it is Mum's 60Th the next day. I don't want to get written out of the will:evil

    We're heading for the Simpson around this time. I'll try and set the timetable to include this ride.
    Coming from Vic under our own steam....

    I am going to make a serious attempt to do this one , I am yet to get the SE dirty this year and I have a huge respect for TK and all he stood for and held dear to his heart (and I think Halle Berry is HOT too :lol3 ). I got to spend a weekend at TK's when he was at Bobin with four other subscribers and Frank Pons to have my suspension tuned and had an absolute ball , also had a short thank you letter published in that article TK did on the Suspension tuning weekend , that gave me my 15 mins of fame :clap .

    Looking at my roster I have to do some skullduggery to achieve the desired result but I've not let that stop me ever before . I intend to be there , it will take something being seriously amiss to stop me . I'll put in my leave form when I turn up for work tonight .:wink:

    I had a talk to the locals up here and they seem keen to do a 3 day bush ride in the top end as they are unlikely to get holidays in the dry season.
