Easter ???

Are there any rides planned for Easter - March 31st to April 1st?

Alternatively - is anyone interested in joining me for a ride out to the goldfields to have a look over all or part of the 965km Golden Quest Discovery Trail? Take the unsealed roads out to Yellowdine, then start the Discovery Trail in Coolgardie. An extra day may assist with this ride - probably the preceding Thursday. See here for details on the Trail - http://www.goldenquesttrail.com/

And lastly - for those riders with a road bike or sidecar looking for a sealed road ride - I've fired up a little group on a new social networking website - check out http://www.meetup.com/Perth-Motorbike-Sidecar-Riders/ I'm trying to organise a road ride most weekends and occasional midweek night rides, and we've got quite a mix of riders and bikes joining in.

Welcome back from Thailand Rob - post up a photo of you cuddling a tiger why don't you

had a great weekend with a crew of 6, a bit different doing the whole weekend on bitumen but had a blast.

found some awsome roads and rode in the rain for awhile, different sensation over here in the west.

pictures will be forthcoming shortly.

At this stage no, can not do and the pricks can't see reason!
