  1. Are any WA Netriders interested in organising something for this years Northam Motorcycle Festival? Last year 2500 bikes turned up, and this year is expected to be bigger. There is racing, stunt riding, exhibits, bands, parades, etc...WA's version of Sturgis, but not so Harley-centric. I've already booked my accomodation, and Mrs Incitatus is driving down with a few non-riding rellies and sprogs. I'm riding down of course....anybody for a group ride?

  6. My other half is on holiday o/s as that point in time

    so while she is away the boys will play. Hopefully my brother in law will have his licence by then (and a bike).

    I am up for a ride though :)

  7. I live in Toodyay so with my new found interest/love of all things biking, it's compulsory for me to attend!

    I don't have any Ls etc so I will be driving but I'd like to meet up and say hello.

  10. I have submitted a calendar entry for this one (awaiting approval), suggesting an 8:30 am meet at the Caltex Servo Midland, (bottom of Greenmount Hill). A quick brekky at the Lakes roadhouse should see us in Northam by 10am. More info here, http://tinyurl.com/g3l5e

  13. Would love to have had it 4 years ago then I might have been riding a triumph speed triple today rather than complaining about the lack of power on my 250 :(

  15. sweet, i can totally blame you for not having my licence then.. cool.

    I spose with 4 years of riding experience you wouldnt have flicked chain lube all over your girlfriends back and dribbled it all over my driveway either eh?
    ^^

  17. hi
    have just noticed this! I will certainly have a word with the other half about going, but we would probably take the back roads from Lower Chittering through Toodyay to get there. But might see some of you there? Or I will see if he would want to go via Midland.
