  2. Couldn't get there last year, might have to find a milker.

  3. Count me in too, but someone will probably have to remind me, 'cause I'm bound to forget!

    Edit: Just thinking about my poor confused bike being in the show and shine, I don't think they'd have a category for it. LOL!

  11. Hey everyone. There are just 3 weeks left before we ride again, and this time through the heart of the Grampians stopping for tea break in Halls Gap. Thank you to all who already registered, those who are considering to come over for a day, please do, you won't regret it. It is a well organised ride for a good cause through some of the best country Vic has to offer.

    I assume GoldenberriGoldenberri, Stever42Stever42 and Rus LerRus Ler are coming on Saturday, the night before, and are staying with me. JozlynJozlyn please let me know if you and hubby would like to stay Saturday night too. smithy65smithy65, I'm sorry it took me forever to reply, but as I've said in my PM to you, you are welcome to stay with me, would be great opportunity to meet the others.

  17. Hi Fr33dmFr33dm, yes, Sandra will be coming too.

    Will you book a table somewhere for dinner again ?
    We might get group rates this time :)
  18. Fantastic! Would love to see Sandra again :happy: Your room from last year is yours (y)

    I wish!! Town will be full of hungry bikers as well as construction workers (western highway and windmill farm). I can book us a table, but as you remember my place is about 15-20 min walking away. I can drive 4 in my car, the other two will have to ride, or we all walk there and back. The other option is to take away fish&chips or pizza and have drinks at home. GoldenberriGoldenberri, JozlynJozlyn , Rus LerRus Ler and smithy65smithy65 what do you think guys?
  19. Im easy, 20 min walk there - how long to get back?
    Take away might be easier or you girls might like to show off you culinary skills (y)(y)
