G'day! Spotted mention of this site on vfrd.com so thought I'd check it out. (apologies, this is almost a verbatim copy of my "new members"-post)

Tee and I often tag on to or even organise rides, so this seems a good forum to expand the network.

Are there many more South-East Queenslanders on here?

Here is a pick of 2 of my fav girls:

Rich I am at Cooroy Sunshine Coast but don't do a lot of local rides more into the bigger stuff. This site is rather quiet for Aussies but that's not to say that it can't change.

... more into the bigger stuff...


Thats cool too. though not too keen on droning down straight boring highways, always up for a big adventure Thumbsup. Time is always the biggest abstacle.

Having said that, Tee and I are thinking of taking the bike down to Tassie in January, when we have to be there for a wedding anyway ...

Neither am I, a common misconception.

Sometimes you got to ride the straight bits to get to the twisty bits. I have ridden just about every twisty bit in Australia. Yeah that entails riding some straight bits.

Yeah, same. For the Tassie traip we're considering driving down in the tin-top, trailering the bike along until Melbourne. Or even freight it down by train and fly to Melbourne (know some people in the train business).

Ya know I gotta ask, why are you not riding it all the way? It is after all a VFR and they make good mile crunchers. Lots os twisty ways to get to the ferry.

Sure, if it was just me I would, I love to ride all day, for days on end, but I'm gonna blame this one on the girl.

The objective is Tassy, and I dont want her to be over it all by the time we get there.

Plus, she's been wanting to bring some stuff back from the parents place.... ah... Hang on!... it just dawned on me that that might be the real motive for the trailer thing.... Hmmmm! Headscratch haha

I'm a fat, cantankerous, ugly, bad mannered git who runs a small Moto Guzzi workshop in Southern NSW about 40Km from Canberra. While my business is almost exclusively Guzzi, with a bit of 'Prila thrown in, if anyone gets stuck in my neck of the woods I'll always try to help out.

Hey all,

Rob from Melbourne, live in central Melbourne, ride a 2005 Bird.  Lots of day trips, have a place in Lorne at the start of the GOR so spend a bit of time down there.  Also try to get away for 3-4 days a couple of times a year for some peace, quiet, and corners!!

Correct - very very sad.

He was riding without his helmet int he last leg ( last few hours actually) of the 2009 IBR last summer and hit a deer somewhere outside of Spokane WA.  As far as I know no  one really knows what happened - at least i never heard definative information except his helmet was not on.

It was a crushing blow to the Rally and all LD riders.

RIP. Sad

Hey guys - I am half Digger half Yank.  My mother was from the Bondi/Randwick area of Sydney.  Uncle was in the AIF during WWII and Grandfather fought at Gallipoli.

I love Australia and hope to get back there one day.  Want to see the Red Center, Queensland, Darwin, take the train across the Nullarbor plain and look up whatever family I can find.

Then another 50,000km on my K7 Gixer 600
