Few Pics

I took a very late run from Sydney - straight down the black stuff and didn't leave Mittagong until around 4:30PM. I stuck 1 1/2 bags of ice in the panniers in Sydney (the only reason I mounted them - cold rum and coke is good!) and it was melting a treat while I ate in Mittagong.



Interestingly there was still 1/3 of a bag each side the next morning - might have been a bit cool . . .


Saw the GS on the tow truck on my way in. Also stopped to hand pump up the front tyre of an F800. They had let out too much air looking for grip and the rim was on the ground - two up.

Hi-ho hi-ho its off to Thrashers we go, arrive in the dark and set up the tent



Check out the fire:



Talk to some louts:



Become one:



Observe the cool crowd from a distance:



Drinking (a bit )
Eating
BS
Half a sleep

Pack up:







Bugger Off.

I might have been a whisker dehydrated after wringing the DR's neck on the way in, drinking a bottle of rum, 3 pina colada's and a couple of shots without taking on any water so I went straight home in pain . . .

Finally got my photo's downloaded this evening

Here is my contribution.

Arrived at Thrashers Friday afternoon, set up camp and enjoyed a great meal provided by Sonia and Thrasher, with help from Ila.



A magnificent feast, fed about 28 hungrey rallyists, 3 course's of course



There was much glee and laughter,




Your's truly with Dom and Mark


Saturday morning it looked OK



Sonia's and Thrashers home, with some locals waiting for breakfast



To me the highlight of the weekend was this.


Thrasher and Dave trying to get this to run so that Dave's son could have his 1st ever riding lesson.

BINGO!

This is his first ever ride on a motorcycle, note the feet arn't on the pegs, he has covered maybe 50 mts



HELP! How do I stop this thing?



Didn't take long



Like father, like son


Dunno who had the biggest smiles on their faces

There was also some maitenance rerquired on Thrashers outfit


Gnome was there on his new Suzuki 1200 Bandit


Sidecar body is made out of 2 Kenworth aluminium side fuel tanks




Some riders began to arrive early on Saturday

Lloyd (grumpy old c**t), I can say that without fear, he has left Thrashers
headed for the Birdsville races


Steve Cromby's new toy


Jerry's new toy


That's Part one Folk's

The Rossco Incident

Since Rossco pansied out early and went to bed it was determined that Angus should drag the slack bastard out of his tent as punishment. I've tried to cut the photo sequence down - lets see if we can follow the emotional rollercoaster ride that is . . . The Rossco Incident.

Its a bugger being dragged out of your tent but its not all bad . . Steve you're so strong - my hero . .



Oh you'll pay for this you little bastard:



Dribble . . . shit I wanna be in my tent:



Its not funny any more - I wanna be asleep:



I'm going to bed - fuck off!!:



Ohhh Fuck:



Yeah alright you've had your fun:



Oh and yeah, you're dead Angus:



This is pretty funny though:



But piss off I'm going to sleep:



Go on, piss off:



I'm sneaking in and they havent noticed:



One more time Dan and I will hurt you:



Do it Dan, Do it!:



I guess this is pretty funny:



But Jeez I've had enough:



Hahaaaaa - I'm in - you can't get me in here ya bastards:



Wanna bet Rossco:



Yeee-haaaa - Ridem Dan - and shake my pina-colada's:



Take that Rossco:



Just Dreamy:



That was, the Rossco incident

Thumb Tiddums 1st TTT

Remember the geezer* that broke his leg on Thrashers loooonnngggg driveway in '07 and got a helicopter joyflight to boot? That's me.
(*In Clubman Tourer lore, 50 years of age is official 'geezerhood').
'Tiddums' (thx for the name, Chaos) a 1998 Yam TDM850 in tasteless beige metallic saved by generous dollops of GOLD, made her first visit to Sonia and Thrasher's front paddock with me on top for, err, guidance.
I thought it sensible enough to fit a Pirelli Scorpion A/T to the front of the distinctly road-type moto. My last trip in had left me a little nervous.
Steve Crombie (Loston.com) was keen to get out to Thrasher's on Friday, so I and a few of our online mates, Jeremy and Gavin, managed to leave Surry/Sorry/Surly Hills in 'Sid-on-knee' by 1pm for a straight motorway blat to Mittagong Woolies and the servo before a pedestrian ride (for the chookies) via Wombeyan Caves Road in by dusk.

Here's the real motorcycle ;-) with a gaggle of woose bikes at the start of the unsealed section:



We made it in good time to camp and enjoy a few beers before our hosts brought out the feast. Soup's up:



(more, next post)

Tiddums 1st TTT

Thrasher: "You're in for a blast - Mwuhhahaha!"



Calm before the...


Go Studio's Josh arrives on the Postie powered luggage and video platform:


Thrasher reminisces while Sonia giggles:


Gnome on the range - Norton recovered:


Clubman Tourer Dan Brooker's Trannie, his tent, himself and the TTT Bonfire just lit:


Clubmaneers on the left, headscratchers on the right, all admire Brookers Trannie:


Steve Crombie supplies Thrasher with a Crombie steak wrap. I copped one too. Yummo!:


Other roadbikes I spotted:
A Honda CX500 - crashed, clutch gone, leaking black crude and parked for recovery on way out.
The CX was accompanied in by a youngster (under 20yo I believe!!) on a Suzuki GN250. Did they both leave on the mighty GN??
The big CB Honda.
Claude's Velo/Matchy.
Pennykid's K100 sans chair.
Gnome's Bandit chair and Thrasher's Boxer two seater chair
A gaggle of posties.
Any scooters this year?

We got it going again, he rode past while I was eating a bacon sandwich at Taralga so it must have stayed fixed! Says he'll be back next year ...

Laugh Tiddums 1st TTT

Just a couple of pics of the mighty TDM850:

The newly graded Wombeyan Caves Road, inward bound (thx 4 pic, Gav)
Moments later, a wallaby half tripped itself as it shot across my front.... and Steve says another also right behind. Phew! I hate riding at dawn or dusk!




Tiddums just before leaving, Sunday morning. Though the track out had a few slimey patches after overnight rain, it didn't require rope or chain wrapped 'round the rear road-oriented Metzeler Z6. 'Twas good to have the Pirelli Scorpion on front!


See ya's next year! Thanks Thrasher!!!

More pictures from me...

G'day All

It was my first TTT. I had already planned to meet up with a few of our BMWTCNSW Club members at Mittagong on Saturday Morning.



Then it was off to Wombeyan Caves and to the Rally site. This was 15KM out of Wombeyan Caves











The ride in was good. Once in, everyone was busy setting up house...





Once the Tent was up, it was time to say G'day to everybody...

"Walk like an Egyptian"...



Phil's own "Castle"



Tony and son Mark. Comparing my "clean" XC to Jerry's "Cleaner" one



Marty, Sheryl and Tony



Dannoz, Jason and John



The Paul's Posties Setup for the night....





Val, Mick and John



Enjoyed meeting many other ADVers including OldOZY, Jason, Icecube1, and everyone else.

The Dome tent I put up on Saturday Avo turned into a Teepee on Sunday morning due to all the wind and rain during the night!

The ride out next morning was a bit "different" compared to the ride in, but it was easier on the XC! Kudos to the CBR and Al on his K100!!

Thank you Trasher for a great time.....

Looking forward to being there again next year!!

Cheers

Bala

Part 2

A couple of HP2's turned up, this one only for a quick day run


But this one was here for the evening. It has 4 fuel tanks!! for a total capacity of 38 lts. Original tank 13lts, under seat tank 7 lts, and 2 side pods of 9 lts each.





Now just how I can justify this says Thrasher? Would the TaxMan accept it as an Emu roundthemup farm machinary?


Other arrivals included GreyGhost and Bev



Ronny Durkin (aka RTO) actually arived in daylight, last year was about 1.00am, with a piece of Photofast Phills bike, that unfortunately kissed the dirt coming down the Bridle Track


Mr Phil Fong


Opps forgot whatishisname, sorry!! Help!


Face Plant Angus and his poor postie bike


Never a truer photo has been taken, and no it has not been photoshopped



And just WHAT WILL you be wearing in next years Mardi Gras, Dahlings?



Not the way Jock wanted to arrive at Thrashers



Hope springs eternal


But alas, after some serious delving into the innards of the Norton


It was time to put the spanners away

Time to turn the camera off and enjoy the night

hmmm, not surprising after that amount of booze Deano but I spotted a ktm rider later in the evening enjoying a pina colada that was left on his great drinking rack on the back of his 640...the same rider who dived on rossco's tent as rossco cursed into the night air for 20 minutes
