I'm out for Thursday too. Have to go into town and pick up my computer which has just been fixed under warranty. 2 day turn around is pretty good for a mob like apple.
Cheers

My MacBook Pro failed the day after its warranty ran out, and they weren't interested ...

Good news Adenco - sorry about the change of plans - same arrangements on the day - i.e. Gundaroo PO/shop a bit before 9:00am ...

EDIT: down to 4 punters now - 3 orange and one blue - any others to help build a good colour balance ... ?

Technically mine was out of warranty but the hard drive itself had a 3 year warranty and an apple recall so all good.

Have good ride tomorrow. I'm heading Wee J way today will let you know how it's looking.

ACT BMW Club......

Have any of you noted that the ACT BMW Club have moved the Kosciuszko rally to the Khancoban Lakeside Caravan Park.......

Now I have been told that there were "good" reasons for this but as they are "BMW owners" I suspect it may have to do with keeping their bikes clean and warm - , but this should be a point of attraction for the Goldwing Owners and the like.

Thankfully for the rest of us the Spaghetti Rally is on the same weekend (11-13 October 2013).

Your thoughts?

Did Nottingham Rd-Brindabella Rd and Two Sticks. Nottingham and Brindabella were tip top with just a few puddles. Nottingham had some logging near the end. Two Sticks had a tree down not far after Mt Corree on the Drs Flat end.

Have a great day. If the weather is like it was today you'll have a blast.
Cheers

Well you got further than what I did, spent the day working on 'Kenny's new exhaust system!!

Yep, I know, it looks like something off a '60s chopper, don't laugh - it'll work fine

still gotta finish heat guards, etc., please with the results so far, not bad for a bushy with a hacksaw & a stick welder! no comments from the peanut gallery please!!!

I understand that NSWPS costs drove the decision to look elsewhere. The folk at Khancoban caravan park, evidently, offered a better deal, including the supply of firewood.

Very nice ride today - no dust / no mud ...

Great run through back roads ex Gundaroo / Rye Park / Binalong / Jugiong - Whitefields, Coppabbella and Tangmangaroo were a blast ...

Stockdale and Parsons Creek provide a good alternative to the slab, up from the end of Hopewood Rd to the Wee Jasper => Tumut Rd - adds a bit of time (dwindles to a tiny farm road, with gates) but worth it - next time we'll look at Jeremiah Rd ...

Good to meet you Alex (Adenco) - hopefully plenty more rides in the future ...

Hi Bazza,
I went that way going to the Alpine and got to a gate saying "Private Proterty" not public road, was I on the wrong road or don't you worry about it?
