  2. Mmm, might ask for a leave pass for that one. I'd look at coming home down through Taralga/Goulbrun/Marulan and down the Pass. Would be a neat ride. Fingers crossed.

  16. Just found out we had a few offs today.
    One guy on a Harley was hurt apparently. Bikes a wreck. All others are doing ok. Just some scratches

  17. Yeah, it went a bit awry after lunch at Oberon.

    There was a few blokes that went off ahead of the pack after lunch, and I think the Harley was trying to let someone pass and ended up in the gravel, where it all went horribly wrong. A couple of other blokes collided while stopping to render assistance apparently. They were ok, but the Harley rider was flown by chopper from the accident site. I really hope he's ok. From the sounds of it, he could move feet and he was responding to instructions, so thats a good sign.

    Because the group was split up at the site, those of us on the Oberon side rode back to Mt Victoria and met up with the rest of the group, then we called it a day.

    The ride back was a bit hellish for me, through an awful amount of traffic. At one point we were flitering up the side of cars that were gridlocked, and one bloke in a truck threw some liquid at a couple of us, got me on the helmet mostly, idiots - its not like we were holding them up or inconveniencing them in any way, they just felt it was unfair we could move and they couldn't. I kept riding, figured that every minute I was moving was putting distance between them and me. :)

    The ride up through to Oberon is good, the bit after that the roads are a bit naff, but would recommend checking it out. Just, ride safe on unfamiliar roads.

  18. Is it correct that there were 45 people on this ride? I saw that number somewhere and decided that that was a few too many people to be on a ride with, especially since I didn't know any of them!

    There are some great roads around Oberon, but the best of them is in the opposite direction from where you guys were heading. It's the road that goes south west from Oberon, through Taralga and comes out at Goulburn. It used to be miles of dirt but I think it's fully sealed now and it's a fabulous run if you want to do it.

    The only down side is that the return trip involves a long, boring run up the slab back to Sydney.

    Check it out.

  20. I was going on this ride and it was my intention to continue on to Taralga. Great stretch of road and you can then do the Mac Pass/Dapto/Old Princes for a magic ride home.

    Did the south run on it's own instead.
