  7. Hi guys.....Is there a bike run after arriving at Bar Beach?????? and where to?????? :p
  8. Yes, the poker run is held after this event, I think it is held by the 'Hunter Valley Bikers'.

    We could always organise a ride somewhere afterwards??


    P.S. ...... SIMON ........ are you here ........ SIMON!!!!!
  9. Need more info?... :p
  10. im really keen to go for a ride with u guys if u can give more details on where and what time it would be great. are u guys organising your own ride afterwards????? im in if u do :grin:
  11. henno nice eyes....You rock :p
  12. the skin has stretched around my eyes from having my visor open too often at high speeds lol lol :LOL: :LOL: no no its not me, but i found it quite incredible :shock: :LOL: soooooo whats happening with this ride?? can u tell me what a poker run is?? do they play poker for real :oops: :oops: am i a dumb a$$ for asking? :oops: can u explain a poker run? :wink:
  13. OK, for a start, the "Salvation Army tinned food and blanket appeal" starts at 9am from sandgate regional produce markets, Rural Dr, Sandgate, a few of us are meeting at Hexham maccas about 8.30am for breaky.

    The poker run i think involves a buy in price, about $20 (proceeds to charity) where you will get a list of destinations to ride to, get a card, ride to next meet, get a card and so on until you finish, usually in the Maitland area, where the best hand wins prizes donated by various companies. Also i think there is a band and stuff at the end point.

    I havn't been on a poker run myself, but i have been told it is a good day out, and again most proceeds are donated to charity, all for a good cause i say ......

    I suppose depending on popular concencus, we may organise a bit of a cruise somewhere ourselves, maybe dodge the few hundred harleys expected to attend the poker run..

    Hope the bit more info helps, and hope to see you there.

  14. I would be interested doing either.........if someone would like to organise a run somewhere interesting..........if all you guys are doing the poker run, id be in that also....... :bannanabutt: :rofl: :biker:
