Geez, Thrasher should call it the chookie rally. Where are the road bikes and sidecars. When I first went back in 94 there were heaps of road bikes. Struth I even made it in on my Z1R (without a chair), having said that the posties ruled.

Still had a ball and looking forward to getting back there again.

Looks like plenty rocked up. Looks like it was quite tame, this year.

Thanks for starting it up DRF was curious how this one ended up.

+1 on that. I nearly needed the seat cover surgically removed a couple of times. The 950 has a lot of body work to catch a side wind!!!!!

Took a slightly roundabout route involving a detour to Taralga to drop a tankbag to a mate.

Had an unplanned diversion while on the way:





Nobody else saw it tho', so it didn't really happen.

Swallowtail pass seemed strangely deserted, with only one tyre track ahead of me (Keefdommirider)



Another view of Thrasher's front yard:

Once again we had a fine time indeed.
Angie loved the ride in and out although rather cool on Sunday morning.
Nice to meet one and all.

How did Pauly with the broken BMW end up?

Thanks for stopping, and offering assistance.
We tried everything to get him going, got it started a couple of times but it would not keep going, bloody electrics.
Eventually we got him back down to the camp near the river, where he called road side assist, they told it would be an hour,
we offered to double him into the rally but he chose to call it a day and travel back to Sydney with his bike.

I did hear some bloke at the rally mouthing off that he had come across Paul while he was waiting for the tow truck,
and was saying that Paul's mates had abandoned him, there was too much alcohol in this bloke for me to try and set the record straight.

Well I did a particularly crappy job in recording Angus's first rally and adventure ride.

I didn't take a pic of the postie when it ran out of oil because he forgot to put the filler cap on, or the stick used to keep the mud rain and gravel out and the oil in (ish). I didn't take a pic of the RG250 oiut the back of Gunning auto repairs which donated a cap that fitted.

I forgot to take a photo of the postie outside the Taralga pub.

I didn't take any photos of his four offs or the many bent bits on the postie but still she goes and goes

He was pretty happy to be there though


And he knows the salute


I think John was commenting on the size of his cojones



Fish with his mates
