    Its obviously a trap to lure unsuspecting netriders into god knows what.

    Kevin Benson? who is that?

    You do know that there's only one way in and out of O'Possum Bay.

    It all smells suspicious to me :shock:
  15. This is Opossum Bay, not Cygnet or Spreyton. Cletus dun live there.

  17. :shock:

  18. Anyone survive the ride?
  19. Dammit, I had a nice big speil written up and I accidently hit back on my browser tab and lost it all .... :evil:
  20. Ok, trying again.

    The day went really well. The group that organised it all was "Spirit Riders Global Care", very nice bunch of people.

    We ended up going Glenorchy>Brighton>Richmond>Cambridge>Acton>Oppossum Bay.

    Stopped at Richmond for morning tea which was provided (cakes and hot drinks) which was very cool, on their bigger rides they have a car carrying lots of goodies like that, which included a BBQ lunch which we enjoyed at Oppossum bay (all free of charge).

    The ride back was nice, as the roads had dried a little more, and the Riflerange Rd or what ever it was called that we went back along had some nice wheelie opportunities :grin:

    Was a fairly sedate ride (especially by my standards :p ) but the conditions didnt really allow for too many shenanigans either, but still very enjoyable with all the support and lots of people to chat with at the stops, about 20 of us all up.

    I just hope I didnt piss the sv650 owner off too much when I got a bit close to him doing a wheelstand :? . I really need to kick that habit heh, it was closer than when I did to you Techno, I was a little nervous about it myself :shock: (if you read this :) ).
