22nd Ruptured Budgie Rally May 15 - 17, 2015 North NSW / Sth Qld

Clashes with the ADV thing (?) at delegate but I want to go for a longer ride

22nd Ruptured Budgie Rally May 15 - 17, 2015 North NSW / Sth Qld

Trying to get an airhead possey together but as per usual all strays welcome.

Thinking of getting away early heading out a bit and in a bit.

Lots of instructions about how to attend below

The third weekend in May (the one after Mothers Day) is the set aside every year for the Ruptured Budgie Rally. So if you haven’t already done so you had best mark the calendar and keep it free for a weekend of great riding and some fun and frivolity at the Budgie. For those of you that need to get a leave pass we suggest you do something exceptional for Mother’s Day. It should earn you enough brownie points from that someone special. Hence the reason we always hold the rally the weekend after Mother’s Day every year.

Following suggestions from previous years rally goers we have made a few improvements over the years. We are most proud of our 5 star (MGCOQ toilet rating system) semi permanent toilet blocks (replacing the old tent versions). We hope to make the experience a little more comfortable and less stressful when nature calls. There are now two toilets dedicated solely for use by the fairer sex (so they don’t have to keep putting the seat down).

Some of the proceeds from the rally are set aside for improving the experience each year but more importantly a good portion goes towards helping the local community and other worthy charities. If you have any suggestions for future rallies just drop us a line at info@motoguzziclubqld.org. So mark the calendar and come along and enjoy yourself at the Ruptured Budgie Rally.

But wait there is more

The Moto Guzzi Club of Qld invites all motorcyclists to join us for the Ruptured Budgie Rally at Mingoola. Where is Mingoola you ask? It's about 60km west of Tenterfield on the Bruxner Highway. Check out the maps further down the page. If you haven't been before don't be shy. Pack some warm clothes and your tent and get to the Budgie. See you at the bar!

And more

I can't believe you beat Hunsta in putting this up

Might make it this year. Still haven't washed the outfit after the KRR. This might be the incentive I need to get it cleaned up.

New rear tyre, fairing/screen on. I think I might do the Waterfall Way I have never done it.

Any tips on a more direct route Bellingen to Glen Innes / Tenterfield happy for a flowing dirt road not single track - I will be on a loaded up 30 year old R80G/S places of interest food etc.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"
