Yes Steve and others - I'm still going for the sidecar & road bike ride this Sunday. Meeting at the Midland Dome around 09:00 - 09:15 for an 09:30 departure - head out towards Bindoon via the Chittering Valley and then hooking right towards Toodyay and back to Midland. Lunch in Toodyay I'm guessing. Back early - mid afternoon.

As an aside - I just shared this little story with a (non-riding) friend ....

"I've got a sidecar ride through the country planned for Sunday and had a female passenger lined up.

So anyway I message her last night to ask if she's still coming, and she's really apologetic but says she needs to work on Sunday. No worries I reply - I just needed to know if I was going to have to load some bricks into the sidecar in lieu of a passenger. I haven't received a reply :)"

Mate I wasn't planning to - Rob's borrowing my cruiser and he wouldn't hesitate to go offroad on it - just like his Guzzi California. I need to try and avoid that from happening

Make up ur mind .. I love.. love.. love .. Did I say Love dirt but if i am gunna ride the Harley I don't have the time to clean the dirt outa it. . That time would be better spent riding the DRZ in DIRT. Hehehehe.

Seriously ..Is this Sunday a slab ride? I should be IN. Cheers Jay.

Might go for a bit of an explore round the back of the weir on Sunday after I sober up, but it won't be a very fast run for the sake of my poor head
