    See yas all next time

  15. awesome day for a cracking ride. plenty of bugs just meant that we got our required protein intake along with all the vitamin d from the sun! mmm, crunchy...

    you were a great group to ride with, and a laugh at lunch too. i hope everyone had a great time and enjoyed the route, and i look forward to doing that one again sometime! :grin: :grin:
  16. Nice ride Rob, thanks for leading that one. :)
  17. Thanks Rob & SHEPPO and the rest of you guys for a great day !
    This was my FIRST group ride :woot:
    To be honest, it was my FIRST real attempt at some twisties and decent corners. I feel I have improved >> gone from absolutely HOPELESS and :eek:hno: shitless when approaching corners, to 'Having portential to make it around in one piece' :p
    Learning to point with chin and lean WITH the bike was something I gotta get used to.

    Was an exceptional day, great weather, awesome route, and a terriffic bunch on people to go riding with.
    I really got alot out of it, as well as having a ball. What I enjoyed almost as much as the ride itself was the attitude of everyone on the ride. ie No smartasses, No rossi wouldbe's, and the only criticism passed around was helpful and constructive.

    Thanks Guys !!! :p

    (Added later)
    P.S I dunno about the rest of you guys,, but I would LOVE a copy of the video ...
  18. yeah i had a great time! thanks for all who came along, even the ZX14 with about 5 and a half times more capacity than the rest of us :LOL:, and Rob for the route and leading, made my day easier!!

    my highlights were:

    1) the bandit now has seen just over XXX km/h thanks to rob for the slipstream and slingshot...... kinda needed with only 45hp!

    2) everyone's attitude! a great bunch of people to ride with, and look foward to another ride with you all!

    3) the red HSV ute on the way home, first set of lights he took off and left me and Vinnie (we werent trying), then the next set we both killed him! hahahaha

    4) the WEATHER!!!!

    catch yas!

  19. lucky we only have to look responsible, rather than be it! your welcome for the slipstream mate, and np with leading the ride. sounds like a great time was had by all, must do it again asap! :grin: :grin:
  20. Hey guys.. delayed response from me (oops) but here are a few pics from the day: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=11339&l=836b3&id=515712123

    It was fun & would love to do the ride again! *looks to Rob* :p

    I'll tell Drew we all want to see the video, he doesn't use the forums much I dont think.
