Melbourne ADV show n Tell night

So one thing I know about ADV riders is we have real love for our bikes and we lurve our gadgets..!

Maybe its you're new tyres, you're funky bracket you made up, you're total setup, you're 67ltr fuel tank..whatever ..

So come along and share your passion, show off you're bike, and you're gear.

Lets do it monthly, as a get together kind of thing.

Location : Nunawading Shire office car park (lat/long tha)
Time : 7.30-9.30pm (family friendly)
Date : Wednesday 19th March.
Cost : Free

Rules :
- exhibitors must be on ADV bikes..ie R1's etc welcome, but not for display.
- if you're riding an ADV bike it goes on display regardless
- bikes will be parked in a large circle facing inwards, 1mtr between handlebars. More bikes, more circles.
- you're encouraged to bring a a jetboil or your own equipment and make a cuppa, at the back of your bike.
- everyone to wear a name tag saying Real first name and AdvRider name. grab your name tags from officeworks.
- no wankers or acting like a tool/fool...even with you funky new exhaust.!
- rain hail or shine

The goal, is to present your bike, as best you love it..so, with ALL your gear on it, as it would look if we bumped into you coming into Omeo from a high plains solo camp. So bags, panniers, gizmos, all that jazz, on the bike with you. A clean bike would be nice but doesn't matter!

The protocol is, you walk around..say hello, to people you don't know, shake hands..and say, so, tell me when you love about your setup etc..

If you're in conversation with someone and a newcomer wanders over, you pause, welcome them into the convo, make people feel welcome

Its about connecting, with your fellow ADV riders and seeing some new stuff, on people's bikes and mutual adoration of bikes n setups ...with ADV doesn't matter what you have, there's always another gizmo you NEED

You can totally ham it up, show off you're stuff, just don't behave like a tool ;-)

There will be awards for the best setup in the night. 1st, 2nd and 3rd, attendees will be given voting tokens.

Reply here if you're coming or txt Ian 0408528800 with your name & ADVrider name.

We'll be taking lots of pics and uploading afterwards.

If you have a non Adv mate who loves Adv setups..invite them along...all welcome.!

Easy to find, right next to the nunawadding cop shop.
Might wander round to have a look.

What *is* an adv bike?
An R1 can be an adv bike

Sorry Pepperjack,

But you have just got it all wrong.

IMHO you are not an Adventure Rider.

RULES! Well f**k me.

I shake my head and wonder why?

If you want to feel like an Adventure Rider, get out and ride, and maybe do a RR or two

Or rekindle the Melbourne ADV Thursday night pub night get together.

Sob

Chris

Last time someone criticised him, he chucked a tersely-worded tantie...

Nice idea though; too bad it clashes with other stuff going on.

Come on Chris, it'll be fun.

Though I suppose the pub has beer...

I'm easy, if the thursday night Pub Dinner has a big turnout, you champion the re kindle and I'll follow suit.. just make it happen(?), I'm easy.

Those that know me know I ride a lot, I just don't post RR's . perhaps I should, maybe I'll try to more often, I didn't really think anyone gave a rats where I went etc.

btw, what's your phone number Chris? I'll give you a buzz, or, mines below, I much prefer talking at a conversational level, either in person (aka Wednesday night) or on the phone.

if you can convince people it's at ADV bike.. then it's fine for show in my books.. bring on the R1 with knobbies I say.

The idea about doing it this way was that you don't have to buy beer or food and we can hang around the bikes as opposed to sitting inside with crap bar service and walking out feeling like fat bastards - well, that's usually how I feel!

welcome to sling all the shit in the world at me if you like( I do give plenty so probably deserve it), even start up a new thread perhaps

.. btw, you're right, "Rules" does sound a bit gestapoish, .. replace with whatever you like but so as to still get the idea of it all..

no one will lose birthdays for not adhering to the 'guidelines' or whatever.. park your bike however you like, just come along
