Ummm, ...... I'm working on it.

Did a reccie ride today. Didn't do the whole ride as the last bit is too near bushfires. So I did some dirt from Seymour to Merton which mean meeting up in Seymour. Whilst it was a fun run through some country I didn't know existed in Vic, I'm not sure it's for us. The start was some of that loose gravel that is like riding on ball bearings, I don't mind it too much, but it won't be fun for some us although it was through stunning country and wasn't very far. After that the track was lovely. The other concern is that it was on the long side.

So I have an alternatives up my sleeve, but of course that means I also have various options for meeting up. An obvious town is Mansfield around late morning/ lunch time. What ever we do will go through or near Mansfield.

I will be leaving from Central Vic and will probably have a few riders with me, if anyone wants to join me they are welcome.

I'm concerned about bush fires at the moment, but I hope we will be right by the time mid March comes around.

If meeting in Seymour it is just over 2 hours or Mansfield nearly 3 hours riding on the main roads and freeways for me. I am not worried about the distance, but not much fun on your own.

Are there any other Chix from the South Eastern/Gippsland/Mornington Peninsula side of town?

McCardigan is from Gippsland. If Megan is back from her Blazeaid work near Maffra (& if she's joining you lot), she might be a chance. She lives in the S/E area. If you want, PM me for her contact details.

Sorry McCardigan, can't bear to hear your snoring if I go and you were there.

Hmph!

Can't find your particulars in my little BB. It is spelt with a C and not a K??. Send photo's.

On a serious note, I will probably be there, but will seek quieter pastures

Thankfully not in your little BB.

Isn't this supposed to be a bloke free weekend?

Unless you have had a bit of surgery on one of your recent overseas trips, and the Chix weekend seems the right time to announce your new name of "McBlouse".

Great video, I think that I recognise Naz and Tina in there.

Spoke to Dorthe this morning (5.30am) and she can't wait to get down here. She said it is freezing in Denmark, try -5C!, she was wrapped up in her doona in front of the fire watching telly

Unfortunately I wont be at Dorthes homecoming Sat week. I will be at PI for the opening round of the Supers

But the F800GS will be ready, being serviced today and fitted with new rubber all round
