That was fun

Yes, it rained, but no one cared.

Thanks very much Brett.

Pete

For those who were asking about the bags on my crash bars with the wet weather gear in them. (hopefully someone took pics ).

Ebay - search for "bicycle frame bag", there are a lot of hits, but the ones I got were on the first page ~$6. There are other styles and colours available. Just double check the size and where the mounting straps are. pm me if you want a direct link, but that should be enough info.

FYI: Not my idea, got it from a friend with a 990, those things have very little storage space so this was a godsend for him.

Pete

Tx for posting all those pics, Gotawee.

I'll add my thank you to Brett & Diana for having us all come and stay. You did an awesome job, guys, with the loo, fire, gazebo, breakfast and arranging dinner with the pub, cleanup etc.

I met up with Howard and Dave over at Chef's place in Tyalgum, on Saturday morning. Then the four us headed into Mebbin State Forest, then over the Border Ranges, stopping at the cafe on Lion's Rd. Only there 2 minutes and who's this on a white Strom? It was rabbitoh64 come to wish me a happy birthday. Tx, Wayne.

Chef & Wayne headed homeward after that, while Dave, Howard and I headed up Toonumbar Forest Rd, down Coxs Rd, and finally Glen Rd/Boomi Creek Rd into the back of Urbenville, pulling up at the Crown. A bus load of Kyogle local lads pulled up on a pub-crawl bucks party. They were already pissed as farts and gathered around the bikes saying witty things about gps's and Draggin jeans and "back when I used to ride" etc. Then another ute-load of yobbos turned up in t-shirts, shorts and thongs. Hang on, it's Chris, RedNeddy and Mustang, coming for supplies, dressed to blend in with the locals. We cleared off out of there for the last few minutes ride to Brett's farm.

When we arrived all hot and dusty, Diana took us to the local creek, but there was no running water, just a suspect looking greenish pool with ominous air bubbles breaking the surface. "That's just turtles," said Diana, "Go on, get in, you'll love it." I was thinking the garden hose would do me, but Howard jumped in, then Dave, so I thought what the hell and did the leap. It was pretty dam good afterall.

Back to the Crown for dinner where Daryl and the team had their hands full with us on top of about 150 others there for an engagement party. VMan had brought along 6 x 4l of Penrite oil which we ran a lottery for, tx VMan (bet your bike was lighter going home). And someone, I suspect Brett and Peter One-off, organised a cake and card for my 50th. Tx, guys, and thanks to all for signing it and the nice birthday wishes.

The mini-bus ride back to the farm was 'interesting' with Daryl narrowly missing a gate post then nearly mowing down the group sitting by the fire.

Sunday morning and the BBQ was sizzling with bacon, sausages and eggs. The odd fly was buzzing around and every now and then you'd see someone double over and cough up their lungs after swallowing a fly.

Mark and Sarah joined us for the ride home, down to Bonalbo then into gravel and mountains via Peacock Creek Rd to Toonumbar Dam and last bit of gravel out to Kyogle. We parted ways there. I ended up doing Mebbin State again on the way home. Went past the turnoff, but the idea of more hard top at 80 km/hr and the probability of cops and tourists did not appeal, so ... did a u-turn and took the shortcut home.

Great wkend away. Good to catch up with everyone again, and no accidents (that I know of).

Attached pic is a montage of Howard, Sarah & Mark, heading into Toonumbar Dam. Dave had raced past before I got the camera out.

Ciao

Default Great weekend

Cheers Brett & family, we had a really good weekend. Nice property and a good camp ground. All together 17 Strom's, a Yamaha, 2 Honda's and Dave's
GS 1200.

Thanks to Howard for shouting everyone breakfast and also helping cook it. That was a nice thing to do mate, cheers.

No rain for us, we must have been lucky. It poured while we were at the pub after dinner, and that was it. Really coolish riding weather, great roads. It was up there with the best weekends I have had on the Strom.

Trevor

We would also like to say a big thank you to Brett, Diana and family for a great couple of days, you guys put in all the hard work and we reaped the rewards, thanks heaps. It was great to meet other Strommers and we look forward to doing it again. The Monty Python Crew would have loved some of the conversations around the fire, like Dean explaining why trains should be equipped with life jackets:what a good night! Also a big thank you to the Crown Hotel's Daryl and Amanda, what a great job.
cheers
Darren & Cindy
