More fine winter weather, good enough for a tootle out to Noojee.

Default Re: Over The Shoulder....Rides Of A Decade

Small world - a few names/faces I haven't seen (or to be honest thought of) for years.

Looking at the photos, it is the riding gear that shows the age most. I can see more than a few of my jackets past (same model) being worn by the punters...

Really enjoying this thread.

Talkin of past rides...

Default 2002_NetRider Strathbogie

Another September ’02 ride.

THE infamous Strathbogie ride

Marty punting the Across up the Merton-Euroa Rd...



...then tries to “feed” the (Memorial-) sheep in the Main Street.






Some got other urges




It all comes to a screaming crescendo!! when the wedding in the nearby chapel finishes, the music stops and a couple of flower girls appear on Main Street.


:guff:guff:guff

That little 100cc Yammie....bought it from a customer of mine who'd moved to Hervey Bay, Qld, using it for trips to the bowls club.
Fell off one day and sold it to us for peanuts, the 200bux for the freight just about doubled the purchase price. And the thing was just about mint!

Started first kick... Rupert painted the guards in "Spider-Paint" (Blobs'n Runs, really)
Awesome little bike.

Default Nov 2002....Beef n Reef #1

Time for another "Big 'Un"

A week of Vic Alps and Snowies

Once more the Melbourne Cup-Week played host, this time for the Beef ‘n Reef.
Word had REALLY started to spread and Tim from Hobart was the first ever interstater at the start, bringing his Pegaso from Hobart.



Together with Garry and I, things were pointing to a showdown of which was the hottest Peg on the block. In the tight stuff, those things ROCK!!


Mine blew the whistle on the first day at the start of the Licola Rd. with a blown head-gasket, something the Pegs were well known for.
Had to crawl home, throw the pack onto the B12 and catch up with the mob in Dargo.




The week produced anything from a bare-arsed Tassie dolphin at Cape Conran




to magic twisties of Gippsland’s backblocks...



...to wetting ourselves in Mallacoota....




...a trip on the Titanic......



....some serious honking on the backroads around Canberra, Batemans Bay, Tathra, Bega...





....enhanced by a “video-presentation” at Cotter Dam Pub (while it existed)...




...to laughs ‘til it hurt at Jindabyne CP.




Some climbed Mt. Kosciousco




....while others got the pizza...





...or tried to throw the Pegasos down the mountain side before joining a costume ball.





Some lost a little rubber




...while others just burned past Blue Duck, Hotham and Mt. Buffalo.

And some loonies did it all on screaming, howling, 12.0000rpm 250s...
12.000 rpm ...all....day....long!!! Day...after....day...after...day!



A decade on.... and they’re still legends.

The full yarn with ~ 100 pics
