Question Beer & BBQ??

Hi Strummer & all. Brill plan to have this ride NOT on Mother's day. My plan would be to suck up big time on Mother's Day & earn a leave pass for the 19th as well as for Maidenwell.

Would like to include the family in the day, so would the BBQ be at Matthew Flinders as well? So we can meet up after the ride? Thanks

Yep, I'd say so. Not sure what time we'd get back there though. Should be early to mid arvo I'd say.

Well, only 11 sleeps to go, and we got us a posse together!!

Planning lots of interesting stuff for the day.
A postiebike hillclimb challenge for everyone's amusement and photographic pleasure (assuming we can con a couple of postie riders into coming

Dave is going to give us a full-on bike setup talk, which I personally am looking forward to.

I'm sorting out an easy route to get us between the demo areas, where we will do some practice on:
Sand riding
Rocky terrain
Creek crossing
Small hills

Mickd has kindly offered to show us some skills he picked up racing enduros in the UK.

I will be doing my best (with a buggered clutch) to give a demo on slow riding and balance (B1 unfortunately cannot make this ride, and he is the undisputed king of balance!!).

Kirstie and Jo will be cooking up a storm on the BBQ, and I've already started stockpiling beers for the day.

BRING IT ON!!

Thumb Hi from Noobie Dave

This would be absolutely perfect for me if there is enough room to come along. Looks like it'll be a big day. If you don't mind a Ninja to DR650 convert I'd love to meet you all on the day... with encouragement and donation for Mel, she sounds like a true legend!
Cheers,
Dave

Welcome along Dave. And a big welcome to ADVrider.
Absolutely room for you and the DR. You may need to clean my drool off your bike at the end of the day though, as I'm pretty keen to get one myself

Yep, Mel is a trooper alright. She's in a bit of pain with all the training she's been doing, but I think the adrenalin is starting to take over as the race gets closer!

Look forward to meeting you and having a beer and a snag.
Cheers.

OK, so a few people are keen to turn up for the BBQ at the end of the ride. So here's the plan.

We will aim to be back at Matthew Flinders Rest Area at around 1pm.
While the snags are sizzling, Dave will give a talk and demo on bike set up to keep everyone interested (I know how short the attention span of dirt riders gets).
Should be ready to chow down by around 1.45, so anyone coming along to support Mel without doing the ride, should turn up between 1 and 2pm. Sound good?

Don't forget to let us know even if you are not riding, as we need to organise enough health-giving alchoholic, meaty and fatty substances to go around. Also, if you have a (?) next to your name, can you confirm please.

Finally, if anyone has any questions about the day, just ask. Most of us don't bite, and the ones that do are pretty obvious due to the foam coating their lips.

And Yet Another...

Hi Strummer,

I'm already listed to attend on the 19th; however, word has spread. Could you add another person to attend please, Mike T on a DR650? Mike's keen to catch up with Snail Trailers and this day looks like a good intro.

Regards,

Mud Lark
