so did the black dog rode today at Port. Good turn out but was a bit disappointed that the crew was about 85% cruisers and mostly Harleys, there were a few adventure tourers, a small number of sports bikes and a few sad old chook chasers. Very undisciplined group riding with some absolute fcking idiots. We took off from the car park at Port Macca then down to Kew. A lot of posers were around which was a laff The mascot I have to express some dismay and surprise that an extremely igh number of riders downed several beers at 1000 in the morning...not a good look in my eyes but hey whatever. We finally got going again to Beechwood to yet another bloody pub! Wasn't real happy to be honest. On the Bathurst ride the dear old Lions ladies had tea drink and cupcakes etc to raise more money and then a rotary bbq- this seemed like a pubcrawl. The ride was supposed to end at the Black Duck brewery (yet more piss!). Maybe god punished me for being a wowser about hitting the piss on a lifeline suicide prevention ride at 1000 in the morning because I managed to come off making a right turn and down like a sack of shit I went. Took off my brake lever, hero peg (lol) dinged the exhausts and all down the side...fcked my knee as well but whatever Two guys stopped to help me right my wrong huge thank you! I limped home and now need to take stock of the damage which is mostly to my psyche...WTF I can not believe it happened... Mighty pissed off at present and not likely to do the black dog ride up here again.
