Bandit weekender meet 30/10/10 - 31/10/10

Post  Cameron on Sun 02 May 2010, 7:31 pm

First topic message reminder :

Ok. Towards the end of this year or early 2011 we will have an overnighter. A good chance to meet each other. Have dinner in a pub and socialise over a few beers.
I think its best to organise this in summer, much more enjoyable.

so here are my thoughts. please post up if you are interested in coming and the best time for you ie november or december etc. after about 2 or 3 weeks ill create a pole with a number of dates. then we'll take a vote. also post up anywhere that you think would be the best spot for the trip. depending on who want to come, i have no problem with even a 3 day trip.

****EDIT****
We have a final date and destination.
Date: 30/10/10
Accomodation: Festival Motor Inn, 126 Princes Highway, Narooma
Cost: $75 per night
Phone: 4476 2099

NSW GROUP:
Meet: 0900 at McDonalds, Molgoa Rd, Penrith
Route: GWH. Oberon for the first stop. Back roads to Goulburn for lunch. Across to Batemans bay for another stop. Possibly meet up with some other riders. Then down princes Hwy to Narooma. Return route yet to be finalised. Up the coast or though Kangaroo Valley.

it was good and apologies for having to bolt unexpectedly - didnt get wet either thankfully and i thought i would get soaked. while all the bandits look good of course, Peter's bike looks particularly nifty i thought

lol!


We were only 12 minutes late, and we didn't hold you up on the Mt Victoria - Oberon Section did we? Very Happy

It was the road works and traffic over the Blue Mountains that did the damage. Mad


Just for the record, I reset my trip meter at Penrith on the way home, I did 184km extra each way. Shocked

Dave and I made it home safe about 5:30.

Thanks for a great trip, what a great bunch of blokes, must be their exquisite taste in motorcycles. Laughing

We didn't get rained on but we went through just after a downpour on the first half of the F3, which added mud to the layer of bugs. Mad


When can we do it again! cheers

You Newcastle guys seem like you love the long distance stuff.
I take my helmet off to you two .. I know I was certainly "rode out when I got home"

I'd like to up north next time

Sorry pete. i thought you where a bit later than that. my apologies then. either way, you didnt out do me and my bro for the bday ride Laughing

Thats one thing i forgot. the bug storm for about 10km. i think matt copped the worst at the front.

Next time, probably in feb or march, we will do a run up north for the weekend.
Me and pete were talking today about a route up. so we will discuss more later on about it.

Just a couple of photos, I didn't take as many as I planned.



From the "time-stamp" it looks like we left Penrith about 0930.





Short break at Oberon, about 1200 Hmmmmm even Google thinks that should only take 2 hours.





From the Motel looking across Wagonga Inlet.





Looks like a beautiful place, pity it started to rain just after I took this shot from the Golf Course, luckily it had stopped raining by the time we finished breakfast cheers

I just got an email from my brother David.
David wrote:It seems I’m not allowed to reply in the national rides forum so can you thank them for me ....



From the guy on the strange looking bandit!





Cheers

Dave

I think he enjoyed the ride as much as we did.

It was good to meet a few of you and put a face to names. I'm sorry I couldn't at least have ridden down to Narooma but at the present life is getting in the way of living and (my) time is compressing daily. Hopefully I'll win the lottery soon, but having my luck it will only bring a new set of problems.

It was good to see that the weather was kind enough. I thought I was in for a drenching just as I got to Bungendore. The wind dropped along with the temperature and a half dozen drops hit me, but I still got home dry.

Pete, tell Dave he is more than welcome on any of these rides and future overnighters.
Its good that he has a unique looking bandit..cant all have the same thing.

Rolls, was good to meet you. And i must appologise for running late. Meant we couldnt have much of a chat at lunch...we just had to eat and go.
But next time we will get there on time, i promise.
