    Yeah - what ever!

    So this turned out to be a great ride with great weather. Ballarat locals were very interested in the bikes, 4 in total, and many stopped for a chat.

    There are photos... here

    There was a guy who told his kid that I was riding a slow bike compared to the others that were there....... :(
  11. Gumboot Ride

    I just got home and dusted off the helmet after stopping in at the watershed coffee night.
    I'm glad that I went today,weather was good,company was good and the ride was good.
    Moochie your bike might have been a bit slower than the others,but you did a good job at keeping up :grin:
    It's good to know that we have done our little bit to help out those Romanian Orphanages.
    It's lucky that we had the use of your G.P.S. Steve,Or else we would probably still be on some dirt road in the black forrest somewhere. :LOL:
    Thanks Luke for organising a top day.
  12. Re: [VIC] The Gumboot 2007- Ballarat - Help a Charity Ride,

    Hey Mr Moochie - That kid had nothing but respect for you!!! RESPECT :!: I know he was only about 3 years old - but he had respect.

    As for the old man, well he was just trying to explain what the L meant!!! Chin up mate you had a great ride!!!!

    PS. That kid admired your bike with the same enthusiasm that he admired the rest of the bikes - you should be proud!! :wink:

    PPS. Anyone seen the pics yet?
  13. Re: [VIC] The Gumboot 2007- Ballarat - Help a Charity Ride,


    I didn't take it to heart..... Was just joking about that one. :wink:
    I had a top day with you fellas and hope to do it again sometime.
    Just got back from the Spur and gonna take a nice long nap. 500++KM over the weekend is good enough for me......

    Tribos : Been working at the clutch thing and think i'm getting better at it. Thanks for the tip. Helps alot at the lights....
  14. Re: [VIC] The Gumboot 2007- Ballarat - Help a Charity Ride,

    My pleasure my friend - we've all been there... and a very good friend of mine once told me the same thing. Look fwd to riding with you again :)

    Listening to Camille - Ta Douleur (on JJJ hottest 100) FANTASTIC! :)
  15. Re: Gumboot Ride

    Hey Pete - fair enough, but not enough to keep us off the dirt eh!? BTW have humbly requested to be on wait list for 4M :)
  16. Gumboot Ride

    Thanks for putting the pics up Tribos.Ijust had a look at em.You are right we do look better with our helmets on :LOL:
    I noticed that you put your name down for the 4M (about time) :p I agree with GarethK "It's gonna be a real blast" :cool:
    Moochie I didn't see you at the end of the ride did you go to the watershed at all?
  17. Re: Gumboot Ride

    I took the wrong turn on the highway but made it home alright. Was going to the watershed and was waiting for another netrider to call so we could ride in but he was a no show and by that time it was pretty late so i just stayed home had some beer and watched a movie. Lol......
    Looked like it was an awesome outing tho......
  18. Thanks

    Many thanks to the guys that attended the ride. Hope you enjoyed it and appreciate your doing something for charity.

    I had a great time, and really love that road from Daylesford through to Woodend.

    See you around!

    Greets out,
  19. GarKI! Did you get the boots that I dropped off?
  20. I went out to the mystery ride to pass you the books but you weren't there.
    Maybe I could meet up with you some other time to pass you the pair that I have.....
