Sunday 20th May.

Post  Hammy on Thu 10 May 2012, 7:09 am

First topic message reminder :

Only just over a week until our planed ride around Mt Tamborine area. So far it looks like a definite six starters including our guide for the day, QuizGuy. Plan is to meet up at QG's place around 10am and start from there. Anyone here interested could drop a PM to QG or myself for details. Fingers crossed that this glorious weather is here to stay for a while. sunny

Marissa & I loved this ride & are keen to do it again soon.

The gravel road down the mountain on the way home was a bit iffy but overall had a great time, all your bikes seemed to handle the gravel ok but mine was all over the place!!.

Agree about Ians bike, what a beast!! I will try not to nearly run up his rear end next time also! The B-King certainly pulls up better than a bandit with a fat guy on it..

Come August Marissa will have a bigger bike to help keep up on the climbs but the little VTR did well overall.

The Speedo & trip meter stopped working on the VTR during the gravel road run so I will have to get that looked at (torn though, some free K's are always good!).

Hope to see you all again soon.


Another ride soon for sure. Hopefully Jan will be fit again so Marissa wont feel like the 'odd girl out'. Yes the B-King has most of the Bussas goodies.

Great day nice to meet everyone. I was a "nigel no friends" and slunk off turning right at the pub carpark exit.
Did 2 laps of the Tambo Village descent Rolling Eyes (resurfaced!) and home via the mondoulin and Beaudesert roads. Hope you all had a good day safe return. Thanks QG and Hammy for organising the weather and vikings. Did see ABS used in anger from behind today although it was at slow speed still was impressive might have to get that new fangled stuff on my next machine.

Yep great ride everyone... I have some video and stills that I am editing up into a movie.. including the gravel descent. IN MY DEFENSE, that wasnt there last time so it was really fresh.. obviously done by people that dont ride bikes.. @ Buck.. I kept checking,I thought I was down a bike, was it my bike you saw the ABS working? cause that was the first time I have ever felt it used on my bike, its kinda strange, but probably saved me!..good to have all who participated.. Stay tuned for the video.. will leave it long so as to catch everybody

Looking forward to it QG. The other two boys had their "Yatla Pies" on the way home. We will have to get our thinking caps on for the next meet. Us islanders can always bring our bikes over the day before and leave them at the house where Jan stores her mainland car to get an earlier start.
