  1. live in melb (SE) - Carrum Downs , found this forum in a search, seems a few rides are organised, hope to get in on a few of the twisty ones :D

    my nick comes from playing online games , nothing to do with my r/l character .......... honest :p

    i need to get out on the bike more often, love going on rides with a destination , kick back, relax, chat about the trip there maybe eat a counter lunch and head on home.
    always makes the weekend worth it, instead of going back to work monday knowing it was wasted :cry:

    cheers ratty ( aka Paul )

  2. welcome mate

    :p wellcome bud,im sure u will be able to organise a ride with the group
  3. i found it on a search the other day
    when i get a bike ill be up for cruisin
  4. heh! i used to live in Geelong, the GOR was a private race track for me on weekends and even during the week after work i would take a blast down to Lorne. only ever fell once down the GOR, learnt about fatigue that day.
    small hint for newer riders - "if your mid corner and then relize your spose to be turning at that point" you may be fatigued, so SLOW DOWN.

    one question, do you mind riders tagging along for the ride down there, but with the intention of returning the same day?
  5. Gday Ratbag and crackin. Welcome!!!
  6. Hello and welcome!! If you post that you want to go for a ride, there are usually a few others up for one as well....and I get to as many as I can.

    Groberts, I do have other things going on in my life, I just try to organise the less exciting things to happen when its not good riding!!! :p

    I take it, Ratty/Paul, that you have been riding for a while? What do you ride?

    Keep an eye out, cos I think there's a ride on for tomorrow!
