  1. I am going for a ride this PM and maybe into the late evening (6pm'ish) .
    It will be a easy going kind of route , one of three routes
    2 on the Northern side of melbourne
    or 1 in and around the city , beach etc .

    Easy going pace , no rush , one of the routes is very twistie , but if taken slower than wont be an issue.
    will decide which route will take at start point by group preferance.

    learner friendly , plenty of stops , plenty of coffee, speed limit


    meeting point .

    Mc donalds carpark
    on the corner of Bell st and St georges Rd
    Preston.

    1:45 - 2 pm form up

  12. yep , liked it very much , so did the ladie i was on the phone too :LOL: undi was good to see you again and meet you(port 80,) for the first time
    quick ride brief .
    left maccas , nearly got hit by a bouncy across the road , bounced beside me then over the handle bars and off the road , ( dont follow the bouncing ball) rode to servo in (somewhere) and filled up , then through st andrews and the twisties up to kinglake and a pee against the fence of the cop station ( wont tell you which two members that was ) :shock:
    Ports first time through the twisties so i sat at the rear, watching him , did a good job for first time .( mental note : watching port from behind saw a patch of stones , talking to myself inside my helmet " watch the stones , watch the stones" he went round them and i ended up going straight threw them" :) )
    down to whittlesea , then out to wallan the back way , up Epping road to wondong and up the old hume hwy into broadford, back to kilmore then down the back way to reservior , via wondong ,Epping.
    one person popped a crapwheel (better than mine) about 30 seconds before the white commodore in front pulled over a car in lalor but we wont say who that was :LOL:
    anyway , it was a easy ride , long straights , twisties , etc .
    enjoyable ride , and enjoyable company to boot.
    thanks for coming all .

  15. Thats not so bad. Will have to hook up with u one day.

    Ive been on a coupla 2 or 3 bike rides but it wasent as
    enjoyable as other rides where there were more of us.

    I meet alot of people on the roads tho. If I see a group, I'll
    normally catch up to em & ride along. Thats how ive met
    most of my riding mates.

    Ask Ratty.. He has 1st hand experience :LOL:
    I was riding with him & ended up riding with another group.
    They stopped. I stopped. They took off their helmets & there
    was no Ratty :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    Best one for me to date was last week riding with 8 R1's
    to St Kilda & Eltham beach. They took over all the lanes
    & everyone was looking at em.
