Brisbane Bandit run?

Post  Ironman on Tue 03 Jan 2012, 5:51 am

Anyone want to meet up for a ride in Brisbane/sunny coast this week sometime? Thursday, Saturday or Sunday are good for me.
Chips, Gus, anyone who ride a Bandit? I rarely see other Bandits out there.

Saturday morning ok? How about meet up at the BP the Gap and ride up Nebo and onto Glorious, continue on to the T at the bottom of MtG. You have two options from there - fernvale and back home or onto Kilcoy past the dam, back over Mt Mee back to Samford.
I'm taking it real easy - posted limits only as riders have had a habit of wiping themselves out on these mountains in the last week or so.
Any takers?

Really depends on when Gus can get down here.
I like to leave the BP at about 7.30 - 8am. Allow about 5 hours for the longer route and we're done. I do like this ride - it's got everything - including cameras and laser guns. pale

Crap Guys. I can't even organise something as basic as a get away on a Saturday morning. Got to pull out. Shit has gone down and can't do nuffin ATM. Sincerely sorry. I'll leave it to the next in line to do a BNE run. Satan seems to have farted in my face once again.

so I went this morning. Left about 7:30am. Got back this arvo at about 2pm....

so That was my route

Pretty good ride except for the boring motorway stretches which I wouldn't do if it had been solely a leisure ride, but I headed up to the coolum motorx track to try and catch up with some friends....

Anyways, I highly reccommend it except next time I would head up to malany for some cheese and wine :-) and then come back down the hinterland way :-)

Stopped at Mt Glorious cafe for a coffee. On the way to Mt Mee I ran into a friend on his 636cc Ninja at the fuel station. He knows the road really well so I followed him. I must say in the twisties I had no problem keeping up with him. It was funny watching his left foot kicking through gear while I just stayed in 3rd and used the bandits pure awesome touque :-) In the straights he left me for dead but thats only because he chose to do license loosing speeds.... I need my license for work and I have kids, I don't wanna die....

Anyways, he needed fuel after about 150km's so I left him behind to get fuel and continued on my own....

All in all a good ride and one I would highly recommend. Especially in summer as the mountains are nice and cool. I felt almost cold on the top of Mt Mee at 10am in the morning :-D

i also averaged 5.7 of fuel on the trip up which is great fuel economy for the semi aggressive riding I was doing....
