We stayed at Tom's place in Newy last night. A slight sprinkle of rain as we left but that was it. After kolllecting a few stragglers we lunched at the Wisemans Ferry pub. Eventually Tom's Mob of eight arrived at RT's place. A bit of vandalism as we engraved our names in the table waiting for a feed.

Met Ed under the Harbour Bridge on a beautiful Sydney Summer night. I was amazed by his packing ability. Not many can manage all gear required for a weekend camping including three push bikes.
A few photos were taken and ........... To be continued on a real computer, stupid iPad.

So now we have a real computer, here are a few photos.
If you haven't read the first line above, maybe someone can guess where we are?





So about 10.50pm I left Ed as he headed back onto teh highway and down to Jindy.

Ride safe everyone

Sorry mates, I'm just back from Tassie and stuck in Clunes, Victoria attending to important elderly relly matters. I hope the gig is well attended and perhaps we can catch up in October when I'm back next time.

Hi Krew,

I arrived home half an hour ago after a leisurely ride up from Jindabyne.

I was impressed with the distances people were prepared to travel for the gathering - Queensland, Northern NSW, Melbourne, Adelaide, Dubbo as well as the ever kommitted Hunter Krew. By comparison, I only had a hop, skip and jump to travel.

Thanks to all who came, and to Bob for hosting a krowd at Robertson on the way for some.

Ready to Roll at Robertson



Ks at Khancoban for lunch on Saturday.



Ks in repose on Saturday evening while the riders were waiting for Smithy's and the Kaptain's wood fired pizzas.



I'm sure others will report on proceedings as well.

There's already talk of doing it again next year. Watch this space.

Bill

This inaugural Snowy Mountains Run was an absolute hoot. We had a fantastic show with members turning up from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide as well as regional areas like our big group from the Hunter, Southern Highlands, Northern Tablelands and The Gong in NSW as well as Stanthorpe in Southern QLD

Thanks to RT and his lovely wife for their fantastic hospitality hosting 8 of the Hunter Krew on Thursday night. A great BBQ spread for the evening plus showers replenished our weary bodies.... Thank you.
This was RT's centre piece for the dinner table....
Yes... that's ibuprophen to sooth the aching joints of us ageing bikers. Laughing

As for the run on Saturday.... what a great mix of roads. 330km of mostly steep to undulating windy bends a lot of which were seemingly endless. 65km in one section alone. Thankfully, all made it around without incident even tho there was some very spirited riding by some.

Bill did a fantastic job of organising everything at the campsite which was a fantastic area by the water on Lake Jindabyne. Many beers consumed on Saturday night with a few pizzas ensured we were rowdy long enough into the evening to keep the whole park awake till late.

Headed back home via the freeways thru Sydney to Newcastle on Sunday morning leaving around 9am with Tom, Smithy and Rick G making it back at around 5.30 with 2 fuel stops and a quick feed at Macca's Thornleigh.

I've got a few pics and lots of video from the helmet cam which I need to edit down and upload to Youtube but won't be able to do that till next weekend as I'm heading North in the morning and back down on Friday.

Thanks to all who attended, for the friendly company.

Cheers

Back home at about 14:15 this afternoon. Had a good night at Bathurst (Jack Duggan Irish Pub) and several lagers. Home via Sofala, Rylestone, Bylong, Denman and Broke, with Gaz and part way with Tackler (on his way to sunny Brisbane). The weather was absolutely perfect for the whole session. Thanks to Bill, again, for his efforts. Thanks to Smithy for some tips on how to ride MUCH faster without crashing!

Good to meet some new faces. It all went so quickly. Time certainly flies when you're having fun!!

G'day All, Home about 5.30 yesterday afternoon after a boring ride up the Hume and sundry motorways with Smithy, Nigel and Rick G. A great kangaroo free weekend and it was fantastic to meet previously unmet forumers , Tackler, Dee Why, Packo, Ausbrick and apologies for anyone omitted. Many thanks to RT and Sharon for the hosting of Thursday nights stay and Bill for getting this whole thing off the ground.  Cheers Tom

HOME at 2.30 pm today, thanks to Bill & Tom for your efforts in organising everything and also to Smithy
and his helpers for the Pizzas. It was great to meet everyone and put a face to the names at last. Also, thanks for the suggestion to come home via the Snowy Mountains H'way the ride was well worth the extra couple of hundred km. My first ride on the old R series for quite a few years and I now remember why I used to love riding the thing so much. It was a great weekend so thanks to all once again.

Home at 2.30 this afternoon, with a total of 2,700kms travelled.
A big thanks to Bill for organising the event, it was an awesome weekend and I'm sure to be back next year to do it all again.
As the Kaptain said already, a big thanks to RT and his wife for the great hospitality on our journey south, also a big thanks to Tom for the accommodations to and from.
A bit tired now, but I'll try and post some video and pics later.

Passed a couple of you on the Khancoban road and managed to get a wave out of Ed Smile . Looks like you all had a very good time of it down there. Who knows? Perhaps I'll get invited to another ride.

Left home at 7.00pm on Friday night to meet with Rosskko at Kirribilli in Sydney , overlooking the Opera house and Harbour Bridge .
 It was a very enjoyable warm summer evening .



fireworks on the harbour , enhanced by our light show .


enjoying the light show with Rosskko in down town Kirribilli. Giving Rosskko an exclusive preview of the Forum trig marKer, and a chance to catch up with the sKroll.



My next stop was under the Big Merino in Goulburn at around 2.30am , where I tried to gather some rest , this didn't go successfully as a diesel "cruiser " with a whole parking lot to work with , chose to park alongside me and proceed with opening / closing doors . @#&^%%*&*%^%%&%$%$(*(&*&............. and that aint the half of it . 
arriving in Canberra around 3.30am to be greeted by locals who were still out late partying. the remainder of the trip was filled with further entertainment . 
 several close enKounters ensured I kept my wits about me.
After leaving Rosskko and Sydney , the night air became cooler and more welcoming , providing a comfortable ride south to meet the Krew in Jindabyne .

Smithy , on the way home I took the bypass - Monaro Highway to Gunghalin , it was a smooth easy run , with minimal disruption through the roadworks , just a couple of KM's of 60 kmh zone. nice alternative next time you travel that way.


Kapital Hill , home to Australias best known Kriminals . 
Barely escaped here unscathed, due to the attention received from security on patrol.




rolling into Jindabyne  around 8.00am on saturday morning . The early morning fog lifting to reveal Lake Jindabyne and the Snowy Mountains .


caught up with Bill and the Krew just in time for muster for the morning ride up to Khancoban . 


The Krew preparing to head out of Jindabyne for the ride to Khancoban.


Dave ( Tackler) .
The morning cloud cover gave no deterant to our keen riders



Dave ( Tackler) and I chose to return to Jindabyne after lunch for our assault on Mt Kosciuszko.
On the return trip I just had to stop here .   Dead Horse Gap is a popular pic stop for many riders on this road.
after assisting a couple to capture their own momento of the Alpine Way , they returned the favour .

It was then time to hit the mountain .
Tackler and I left Jindabyne around 2.00pm , and arived at Charlottes Pass carpark around 3.00pm . Plenty of activity happening on the mountain . We just added to the hustle and bustle .
Given my tired state and lack of rest on Friday night , I found the treK up the mountain very draining on both the body and mind . It was Tacklers continued enKouragement which spurred me on . thanks Dave. 
a quick stop to take in the refreshing views and mountain stream . Tackler leading the way to the summit ( in the background)



our constant Kompanion being the Krows that inhabit the region.

the final leg of our Klimb. 1.7km to the top .


Grand views from the summit . Placing our own mark ( or should we say " marker" ) on the Kosciuszko Kairn.
Tackler has some fantastic shots from our Klimb to the top .
It is yet to be decided as to the final thoughts of the "beaKons" use . Possibly an "enKouragement" award for some unsuspecting Krew member. and to be passed on annually.
Thanks to Smithy and Bill for their assistance in putting this together. 



# Conquer Kozzie ( now "Konquer Kozzie" ) look us up on facebook.


a spectacular location , well worth the Klimb to the top.
the glide down the hill on our mountain bikes was a real buzz , only stopping briefly to take in the sunset across the Snowy River.


It took us approximately 3 hours to reach the Kairn monument , and a mere 30mins to return to our K's parked at Charlottes Pass. 
Finally made it back to base Kamp by 8.00pm where many concerned Krew members were elated to see our return . 
Pizzas , chat and laughter were in abundance . apologies to all for my over tired state , I managed to gain my second wind and continue into the night , finally heading to bed just after midnight . 

Up and rearing to go at 6.00am , catching up with some of the Krew who missed signing the sKroll the night before .

caught up with Ausbrick and Andy on sunday morning before breaking camp. 



and Rockman 


a few of the Krew preparing to head home from the Snowy's.
All the K's seem to be enjoying troublefree runs to this great spot.





the daylight on Sunday made for great ride home . Although enduring a slipping clutch plate , due to an overdue RMS service , Ol' Blue performed extremely well . Maintaing a steady pace of 100-110 on the way north to Newcastle . Not satisfied with the Hume , I diverted into the Kangaroo Valley and Old Pacific Highway for more pleasing scenery . Sundays temps remained moderate , not much above mid twenties , with mostly cloud cover to shade from the suns bite. 

Passing through Cootralantra and the eerie landscape of boulders, "dead" trees , and black Krows.


sKulpture at Coolringdon. about 3 metres tall.  purpose ... not sure.


. Rounded a crest in the road to be amused by this scenery . first thing to mind was " Ventura Highway " , Aussie style .
 The Monaro Highway at Billilingra Creek.
Took me a bit of time to return back to this point for a picstop . happy I did though .
That is a Raspberry farm in the middle. Didn't stop to see if they served them on sKones .


Almost managed to catch up with Smithy and others at Thornliegh on the northside of Sydney. 
The Old Pacific Highway beckoned my attention as I drew closer to home , so a quick set up of the dashKam and a few more twisties, and I was sufficed 
Thankyou Bill and all the Krew for the opportunity to share a great ride and weekend with a few familiar faces and with many new ones .
I have to say ,this Krew have proven yet again there Kameraderie with some great support shown on this trip .
The Klimb to the summit was a very difficult one , due to the lack of energy from riding through the night and then joining in on the Saturday morning jaunt to Khancoban. Tackler provided the much needed cheering on as we ascended our target. 
Thanks to Rick for keeping an eye on us during the morning ride, and for setting me straight when the mind was weary.
It was wonderful to share the skroll and its many stories amongst the Krew as well.
Cheers Ed.

Thought you might have been heading to the Brumby's distillery . Might have caught you on dashKam also , will check later as I haven't downloaded as yet . 
The road to Khanchoban was a real buzz , definitely worth the trip to the area .

Made it home about an hour ago after an almost uneventful ride when a clutch cable snapped at Glen innes. I managed to retrieve the barrel and installed the old spare.
All in all a wonderful 12 days away with a great Krew and 3420 kms. A special thanks to Bill for organizing the scrum and Tom for puting me up for a few days in Newcastle. Unfortunately I once again succumed to the infliction of Kpox and got seduced in Queenbean and purchased yet again one more K, this time a K75 RT with a burned out wiring harness. I will be restoring it to its former glory to replace the K1100LT.

I arrived home about midday yesterday after an almost trouble free trip. I ran out of fuel about 10 km from home. I guess I cant get from Murrurundi to Inverell on one tank unless I travel closer to the speed limit. After Jindabyne it was on to Tumut, Wagga, Henty, Wagga, through Junee, Young, Cowra, Bathurst, down th Bylong Valley and up the New England Highway. Great 6 days away and good to catch up with the K krew.

Hi all! thanks to everyone for a great weekend. Rickmeister was my last travelling companion and we got home just after 2:00 pm on Monday having said goodbye to RT at Bathurst in the morning and waved Tackler off on the remainder of his journey at the Rylstone turnoff along the Mudgee road.

I spent 3 hours yesterday morning compiling a map and uploading photos then wrote up the text only to have the post disappear into the ether, or wherever things disappear to on the internet, when I was almost ready to publish. I know, I should have compiled it off line but I'm a slow learner and was in no mood to redo it.

There is one photo though that I will share. This was Rickmeister at Khancoban using the technique that the MotoGP riders use and maybe what he learned off Smithy to ride fast, that is visualising the next 64 kms of winding road up to Cabramatta Cabramurra behind closed eyelids.


Anyway here's the round trip map (just under 2000 kms for me).
Gaz round trip map

Edit - thanks Charlie. I suspect the autospell got me and I was still peeved about losing the post yesterday.

It was great to see the k crew all in good form as my last encounter was Tottenham 2013 for the 30th of the kays conception, loved seeing  the banner again and how far it s been, it shows the enthusiasm and effort of key members who keep our aussie connection to this site alive and pumping. Bravo guys. Andy and I had a great run back down the coast and eastern Vic with a great night in Lakes entrance , a little less concentration needed as there was some open country and some great high speed sweepers for a lot of the run . A run around some of Vics better roads is a thread I would like to put up . Keep a look out Shocked Cheers AB

Here's some footage of Saturday's ride from the camera mounted on front of the LT, hope it turns out as I haven't tried this before.

Under prepared and leaving late I was finally off to Jindabyne on Saturday morning.
The longest ride for me in several years. 

A short stop at Corryong

I was riding solo with a single purpose…..


However after reading all those posts dedicated to the merits of various types of flour and pizza bases, I was wondering what I was letting myself in for.

I arrived at Jindabyne around 5.30pm and discovered there are real people on this forum. So after non virtual introductions all around and setting up the tent, it was pizza time.

The Kaptain (Hollister) takes charge…


The pressure's on … and Waz is applying it…


Those pizzas ready yet?


Smithy on the paddle…


And we’re cooking…





This is comfort food…



Waiting patiently… Packo, Rockman, Rick G, Al 58, Gaz80


Smithy reckons this one looks especially good…


Yummmmm…


"Our work here is done..."


Grover K… 

This man is a force of nature. He rides over night from the Hunter Valley dodging kangaroos. Stops in Sydney, then stops in Canberra to take a photo of the Nation’s Parliament House at 4am. Gets asked to move on by Security and is then questioned by the Federal Police. Spends the morning at the campsite, then rides up to the higher slopes, then rides a push bike up Mount Kosciusko. He reloads and rides his K and trailer back into Jindabyne well into the evening and kicks on… 

But wait … there’s more…

Grover is expanding the forum regalia and has built a new trophy. For what it will be awarded has not been decided yet … (suggestions welcome).

Al and Warren are impressed…

Blue LED’s…

There will be a motor fitted and the logo will rotate...

Indian036 approves...

Amazing effort Grover. Thanks for your ongoing contributions and enthusiasm.

The evening rolls on… Rick G chatting to RT


Packo, Waz, Warren and Indian036


RT, Indian036, Gaz80 and Waz

And out comes the THE skroll…


After several minutes of discussion about which Waz had signed the skroll before, and which Waz was Waz, this Waz was allowed to sign the skroll.


Followed by RT. Take a bow RT…


And off to bed for me…zzzzz.

Next morning… a wander around….

Grover K packing up…





Waz making it all fit…



Packo heading off back to Adelaide…


Al 58 taking off...




From this back to the big smoke for me…sigh…


100 ks from home and the sun is setting…


It was a great weekend and thank you to everyone for your company. 
Thank you to the Kaptain and Smithy for making the pizzas. 
A special thanks to Bill (Indian036) for all his efforts in pulling this weekend together. 

Gaz, thanks for the Coopers. You are a life saver mate. 
And to those of you sitting at my table, I sincerely apologise for the amount of pizza I ate.
I was sooo hungry.

(Apologies for any incorrect names)

Cheers,

The last word, nobody seems to have mentioned this. The recipient shall remain namelessly embarrassed.
10klm out of Robertson on day 1.

I think Uli had to tip out his Jaegermeister to use the bottle.

I believe it was the first time I had seen Rickmeister carrying some water to rehydrate on the trip. It didn't even make it down the pass to the coast. 
3 bottles of fuel later and our we were on our way, no one knew anything. Except the camera.
For more details you will have to ask Indian36 Bill, he was the chief organiser.

On another note, I've been back 2 weeks and can't wait to do it again. Must be a disease.

Me too. Had a day rest-over at home last week then hit the road again for a few days up North. 10 days away in all and a total of 3200km travelled.
So a bit behind in getting my pics and video uploaded. But here are a few pics from the Hunter Krews travels down to Jindy.

The lineup at our morning coffee break

Smithy's latest aquisition - ex-poly K1100

Rickmeister's K100

Gaz80's great K75

Tom's K75 showing running repair after previous roo damage

Tackler's K75

Rick G's K1100

My naked 'old girl'

Sitting in the shade down somewhere around Camden waiting for the tail end to catch up... it was bloody hot

The campsite at Jindabyne Dam on Saturday morning where we caught up with others

Videos to come once I get the time to edit them down.

Time for the embarrassed one to 'fess up!

My excuse is that having played with the fuel level sender, I thought it had gone to non-functional to always on. It had also been filled from a 10L container that in my messed up brain I had in mind was a 20L container. 

Having left Goulburn with what I thought was a fairly full tank, I thought I'd have no trouble getting down the coast for a fill. Razz

I discovered later that, for the first time in my ownership, the fuel warning light is now working as designed. 

Goes to show yet again the kindness, generosity and kameraderie of the   Krew.    Thanks again, Rickmeister. Very Happy

Bill

Thanks for the kind words about the Snowy weekend, everyone. It was a pleasure to be in the kompany of the Krew. 

Whatever the quality of the organisation, without the goodwill and sharing of the participants it would have fallen flat. 

In the forum and otherwise, people have already been talking about doing it again next year. Sounds good to me. Very Happy
Arrangements will be started later in the year. 

Bill
