  13. last ride 2006

    Well been an done it , :grin:
    It was pretty quiet out there cept for a shit load of pushies up Arthurs Seat :eek:
    There was also a wet spilled fluid of of some sort all the way to the summit only on left handers so it was probably a fuel spill I presume .

    There was a gaggle of bikes in Flinders at the bakery having brekky but no one else much on the road.

    No rain coming in from the south cept for maybe 6 drops , its still overcast but dry as a Witches ,,,, well you know what.

    Have a safe and Happy New folks.
    Will see some NRs next year

  18. Mt Dandy and surrounds were dry most of the afternoon, only a few spots around Treemont on the way home :grin:
  19. I did a 1170k day (in 12hrs) on new years eve got home at just before 10pm and showered, clean clothes and 10mins later was next door with beer in hand to wait the new year. Rode Dapto NSW to near Noosa Qld after riding down on Thursday.
