Goodie remembered, he chucked that Babyblade on the Mt. Dandy Tourist Rd., in the lefthander just out of Sassafras, where there used to be a tree-root lifting the inside asphalt by a good 4 inches.
No idea what made him go that tight that early but that bump launched the Blade across the road and down the embankment, landing on someone's driveway.
He was ok, though....just pissed off, 'cause he wasn't insured, IIRC.

Qatar? Christ, what a change that is! Jen, yeah...that tickles some very faint memories. She only was a round for pretty short time...

Default Re: Over The Shoulder....Rides Of A Decade

There will be more...LOTS more.
Struggling a little at the moment because I tripped overr a fairly major , 2-week, ride (BananaRama in 2003) of which no RideReport was ever written by the looks of it.

Got all the pics (all 650 of 'em!!), but they've barely been sorted into day-folders, no weeding or "turning-around", cropping, fixing etc. has been done.

This one is holding up the "flow" a bit...but man, what a ride it was!!



Okay....this really was part of the idea of the thread, anyway.
Has anyone got any stuff for 2004?
I can't find anything at all, no pics, no RR-files
I'm sure we DID ride that year!!

Default Nov. 2003...BananaRama

Late in the year, late November...
5000k's of one-way cruising Brisbane to Melbourne and the first time ever we'd shipped bikes somewhere.


9 for the core-group, plus "temps" along the way...Latte-Dave and Nev joined up later, the Brisbane AusMoto contingent gave us a farewell at Mt. Glorious, Lemmiwinks turned up in Walcha, Alex and Gayle in Gloucester...


Mick was on the 9er by now.... it was Sasha's last trip on the ZZR250, the bike already sold before the start of the ride....Guenther's first ever "big ride"...
John touring on an overloaded R1...Nigel and his unforgettable twin-esky Strom, carrying everything up to a 5ton hydraulic jack




Brilliant stuff in the BrisVegas Hinterland, like the steep singlelaners across the Bunya Mountains




"Happy-Cruising" in the Border Ranges




The wonders of Girraween National Park





And it certainly wasn't a sombre affair





Some rare visitors popped in, too





It just doesn't get much better than this.
