Great weekend. Fantastic ride and fantastic company. What more could you want.

Thanks to the Moose and David for organising the weekend. This one was the best yet.

I still managed to get lost though and while others were back at the Motel having a cold one I was making my way back from up North, along way North, even farther North then my map could display. Yes Roughly 100km Type North.

See I overtook Alan going down the mountain and was having sooooo much fun on the twisty road I missed the turn off back to Dorrigo. Some 80km later I thought this road dose not look familiar, and what happened to the D 70, 60 40 30 km signs. Some one has replaced them with a G 60. 50 and so on. Now that was not such a problem however the fuel light had been flickering for 54km and I still had 40 to go to ANY TOWN. I rode at 90kph to conserve fuel and other then a couple of stutters going around a few corners my trusty Effy got me there.

I found a great piece of road heading back to Dorrigo, a meandering $40 $50 type road, I was almost glad I got lost.

Again thanks to everyone involved had a fabulous weekend
Cheers

I'm home also, got home at 4.40pm via Armidale, Uralla, Walcha (Thunderbolts Way), Gloucester (Bucketts Way), Dungog, Singelton (Putty Road), Richmond. 747klms for the day, 1631klms for the weekend. Karl thanks for the company today, you should have come down the Putty Road with me, you would have enjoyed playing with the for the sports bikes. .
Thanks everyone for a great weekend, have we started organising the next one as yet?

Now all I have to do is get the time to remove the dead bird from behind the dash.

Thank you to all that made it to this years turn out, and of coursse to David and Simon for their organisation.

While I may no longer ride an FJR I value the associations that have been forged over the years that I rode my Silver '03. We had a good trip back and progressively peeled off layers of clothing as the temperature rose. A spirited sprint through from Murwillumbah to Currumbin put an edge on the tyres and helped to round off some of the flat spotting that highway running creates.

Our next trip is to Phillip Island in October, which is now only about six weeks away.

Now that's a nice bike Phil! Congrats on the new machine mate That is my favourite colour too. Hope to catch up for a blast soon mate. I suppose we'll give it a few weeks until you get used to real speed and power again.
