Anyone doing the Farride to Nambucca Heads this weekend?

It doesn't work out for me due to family issues else I'd definitely be there.

had a good run on this yesterday - it only got wet from Nabiac south heading home!
the only downer being when I stupidly locked my keys under the seat at Taree. duh!
I can recommend a good locksmith if you're in the area cheers

Looked like there were bigger numbers for the weekend's ride compared to Bemm River - maybe about 20 more. Did the lunch stop work out ok?

PS: Bummer about the keys - makes me think I should be carrying a spare in the wallet.

I didn't stay for lunch, & left just after 1pm. There were over 100 riders + pillions registered, so the road was jam packed with parked bikes (2 deep in parts!).
Have put some pics up on my site.
Still feeling bloody stupid over the keys. As soon as I heard the seat click shut I realised what I'd done. dumb. real dumb. Fortunately it didn't cost me the run!

always carry a spare key duct taped somewhere inside the bike fairing etc or in your wallet.

Won't help you now the keys have returned to their rightful place but I've made it a habbit of leaving the keys in the seat lock whenever I take the seat off. That or back in the ign switch
