Default Jan 2002...Grampians

Now under the NetRider banner, it's still the same crew of culprits...

Latte Dave (FondaHonda) threw one of his legendary Royal Breakfasts at his place in South Melbourne for the whole bunch to kick of the weekend ride along the GOR and Halls Gap/ Grampians.




Port Campbell



Moike clowning around



Latte Express and Stef on the CBRthou




L to R: Sarah (who married Jason a year or 2 later).... Yours Truly....Paul (drizzt)...Jas....half-obscured is Latte-Dave... ?Grant, I think? (had a ZZR250 which had never seen a spanner in its life)...Stef





Latte Dave showed us some new roads through Lexton and Clunes on the return leg

Default 2002_Tassie

Feb '02


Ingo, the old HighSchool mate and German Lufthansa Pilot had managed a 2 week “rotational break” in Melbourne, so we had to show him some of Australia’s best riding country by dipping down south.



Goodie, Garry and Ingo at Station Pier.
3 Pegasos and a B12





East Coast





Bicheno





Rossarden Loop





Mt. Wellington, Hobart at our feet





Strathgordon Rd.





This could be the Tassie Trip where the guy on the Busa decked it when the backpack got caught in his back wheel...what a mess.

Down the Derwent





Getting crappy near Queenstown, note the stylish “Goretex” shopping bags to keep the feet dry.



Needed a tetanus shot after a bite from this little bugger....but fed him Claret-soaked bread till he keeled off the verandah.





Guzzi Club boarding.....one of their shortest, sorta 5ft cube, rode the longest-suspension-Quota I’ve ever seen....some serious acrobatics were on show every time the queue crept forward.... bloody hilarious.







Great trip, lots of laughs and around 4500k’s, all road.

After some checking around it looks like I've never done a RR, nothing crops up when doing a search.
But I'm sure I've linked quite a few of the pics in the past...if I find something later, I'll edit the post.

Default 2002...6-Peaks #2

April 2002...

A week in the Vic High Country and Snowies

Only 5 months after the Inaugural, 6-Peaks #2 got underway.
Word had gotten around and numbers were swelling as a result.
Warren (RIP) sitting on the tree-stump of Tallangatta Caravan Park, Stef on the CBR1000 and Mark Micallef on that bent ‘n busted, old grease-bucket Across






Jaz smoking it up Mt. Buffalo




Yours Truly on the loudest Pegaso around....and that was before she occasionally blew the exhaust can off the link pipe. Clean off, no sweat. Oh....and if anyone dared to chase, they finished up with a suntan and molten jackets, that thing threw 2foot flames on every high-rpm down-change .






Dave Mountainhitter tried to blow up the BBQ at the Jindabyne Caravan Park






The whole mob at Charlotte’s Pass, incl. BT Humble from Canberra






Paul (aka Drizzt... RIP, mate!) wrenched his knee and discovered the delights of a Pegaso while I took his rumbling TL1000 home for him.

Stef gave Garry’s Pegaso the berries up the Alpine Way, while Garry nearly buried the CBRthou in a righthander, going bush big time and somehow emerging upright out of the greenery 30m further up.

Discovered the Mitta Valley and Dartmouth Dam, Lockhart’s Gap and the then still unknown Redbank Rd.

Good stuff

Full story here (~40 pics)
