slight change of plans, I dont think I will be camping at Philip Island this year as I have a run to Bomballa the weekend before for the celibration of motorcycling. I do plan to do the complete Barry Sheene memorial ride from Bairnsdale to the island and might get back to there for the races on the Sunday

That's the second time Lyn :). I'm going to spread rumours about you soon! I'm still waiting for the German pics too. I'll send you the address via your regular email. There is a lot of pressure on for rides in September...Oooow it'll be so good but tough to decide.

I just have to post a couple of pics from the snow in Germany - I'll dig them out on the weekend. Speaking of travelling, Im organising a group to NZ for 8 days riding leaving Sydney on 29 Sep returning 8 October if anyone is interested......its really inexpensive to ride over there - a Honda Transalp is $NZ79 a day to rent. Net, you lucky duck, you have it all!!!


it would be magic to do NZ on bike, only been there once and loved it.... sorry to say my budget wont allow a NZ trip this year....maybe next time

Hiya Jim...welcome to BK's Oz thread...we all just rummage around here a bit and try to get together when we can - stick with the thread and help us keep it rollin along.
Ok, Ok, I'm not here that long to help it roll that much...but I try. Managed to clean and restart the bikes today...I missed them! Let's keep it sane here folks and not mention the sc**ter word....Ms Moto - you started it!
Hey wouldn't ya hate to live in Gippsland at the moment with the freezing bl**dy temperatures - it was 38C in San Diego when I left the other day and I was in the pool with a beer....now ya have to like that!!

Took a spin up to Leura yesterday on the back of a 500cc scooter - well now, won't be trading my bike in for one!!! Fast - yes, manouevrable - yes, comfortable for a journey - NO.


great to see you back on the thread..

I seen a scooter in Melbourne a few weeks back with a matching side car, it did look neat but not sure I woud want to take it for a long run ......maybe in another 20 years I will think about it LOL

Great news maz!

Ive put in for holidays for 2 weeks around that time. If they dont give it to me i reckon it might be time to pack up anyway. I need details Trev? we gonna meet for an arvo, night, for the ride???? for the gp?

Its up to everyone to work out just what they want to do there is two camp grounds on site for those who want to make a weekend of it or the ones who just want to catch up on one of the days would just have to work out a time and place to meet at the track. I would like to do the tribute ride to Barry Sheen which leaves Bairnsdale on the Thursday and rides to the GP and has a lap of the circut, they say its a great day with hundreds of bikes. still have a lot to work out my self yet but for those interested you might want to google the GP web page, heaps of info there.... then let us know what your thinking
