Not sure about the SOO for 2008, will have to play it by ear. We have just paid for a cruise which goes from 18-26/3/08 - 2 weeks off. Plus I am hoping to do the Superbikes again in early March- another 2 or 3 days off work.

My boss is already shaking her head at me and asking, "How casual can a casual employee actually be". Would I dare ask for more time off?

Jwm Dont worry next time he asks how casual a casual can be just ask him to make you permanent employee then you can show him the answer which he is seeking

Hello All,

We too are coming for the next SoO. Sounds real good David and Phil.

Look forward to catching up real soon! Between work, trips and broken computers, I have not had the time to even scratch myself or go for a ride. Come on the Christmas holidays.
Have you guys seen the new Aussie FJR Owners site? Looks like it could really take off too.

Now that I'm back (and hopefully the weather clears soon) I'll be checking out the route before the dates, just to acquaint myself with new and unforeseen hazards.

Hi David, good to see you back onboard. Regina and I had made a decision that we would attend the SOO but in the last few days I have been offered a very tempting full time position back in the work force. I will be making a decision within the next week.
If I take the position hopefully I can negotiate the day off that i require for the trip (the Friday). If I decided to retain my current casual employment status I will book the motel in the next few days.

Jwm - aren't decisions just a pain sometimes. I hope that whatever your decision is we do catch up at SoO - maybe you can get the day (or two?) off that you need.

JWM,

There is a word for your situation mate....

" SICKY "
I look forward to catching up with you at casino...and then we can have a laugh with what story you made up
Chronic Diarrhoea always works well for me.....and to make it very realistic...and to make it look real....Wednesday arvo fake a few trips to the loo....complain a lot about sore stomach....cold sweats...increase the frequency of toilet visits....ring in Thursday morning....tell em you've been up all night...and you get Thursday off as well. I'm pretty sure you don't need a doctors certificate if you have 2 days off if it is not a Friday and a Monday together.

See ya there mate

Moose

p.s. Welcome back home David and Zea

I have this date also booked a room for myself and Regina. The work situation is still unresolved at this time but I'm pretty positive we will make it one way or another.

Karl, we will be travelling up on the Friday. Details, time, route etc are undecided at this time. I just checked and I still have your email address from the Dubbo Trip we did with Yamaha Tribe in May 2006. I will be in touch.
