  14. Hi Wanderer,
    I'm also new to this forum and we'll be heading up your way in May for our annual V-Strom gathering at Gloucester! Will be visiting my Sister in Dorrigo first, but the roads up your way look awesome
  15. G'day Suzukigirl66 Yep the roads up here are pretty good .You should come up the New England Highway to Armidale then down to Dorrigo thru waterfall way .Great scenery ,Wollomombi falls turn off to the right on way down .Gets gets pretty windy 25kmh bends on coast side of Dorrigo My son is a DL650 fanatic ,he is about to buy a new one .He loves them
  16. Hi Wanderer, There is going to be a bike expo on in Gloucester on the week-end of May 1 - 3, which is when we are having the V-Strom gathering, about 40 odd Stroms will be there for that. We are heading for Armidale and going on the Waterfall Way, I'm not very quick on the windy roads, so Hubby will have to wait for me at the other end I think :)
  17. Well Sharon u and yor other half have a safe ride .Im grounded at the moment ,got a crook hip.New bike in shed and cant ride .Yep that sucks .
