  2. I thought I'd post this up as it is for a wortwhile cause, and a good day out by all accounts of last year.

  3. I will absolutely be there for this one. Like the thread says, these blokes and chicks do an incredible job at the worst possible time, at the very least flogging themselves to exhaustion and at the worst, risking their lives to help other people.

    And considering that pack of assholes the Blue Mountains call a council gave these guys grief after they had just gone and saved a few suburbs, I think we should all get behind them, not only to raise some money for them but to say thank you because they didn't get a thank you after the last round of fires.
  4. dunno if i'll come on this one.
    I have a ride organised for Saturday . . .
    We might change saturdays ride with this one . . hmmmm, i'll think about it.
  5. I'm up for this one, as Gregg says, a good cause and should be a fun day.
  6. Ill be there

    Ill be there for this one....with my 2 new loves :grin: the man and the bike........ :p
  7. See you punks for a Sausage and Egg McMuffin Meal at 8:30am.
  8. What, you won't be nursing an election night hangover after we celebrate the triumph of the hard working, everyday NSW voter.....Yeah, me neither. See you there.
  9. So its to meet at 0830-0900hrs ?

    And you know how impatient I get at McGraths Hill Maccas !
  10. As opposed to when you get out on the road and leave everyone behind? :wink:
  11. Gregg, you displayed last night that your CBR F4i throttle does go pass 40% application and the one handed riding is hopefully the start of new things to come !! :LOL:
  12. I'm probably in for this one.... unless a better offer comes along.. :roll:

    Wind south easterly at 40kph gusting to 60kph, light showers of rain, on average about 50% cloud cover at 3000 feet, top temp of 22, conditions easing slightly during the day but still a bit cruddy.

    Wind east south easterly at 20kph, about 1/4 cloud cover at 4000 feet, top temp 18. NO RAIN!

    So a bit of crud before we get over the top of the hill, fine on the other side. Could still be a bit shitty at Lithgow but it won't be getting worse during the day. Bring your wets.

  20. Is that a widely used Military term ???
