Great news that this little gathering is even dragging some of the Krew out of retirement full time work - welcome back Klompy. 

Sorry you can't make it Rick, I guess we're not quite in your neighbourhood - it would be a bit like me riding from Bristol to Aberdeen, which puts our little islands in perspective. Enjoy your worms - yum yum!

So here is a brief summary to date especially for those Krew members on the southern highlands whose busy schedules don't allow them the time to read through all the drivel interesting posts preceding this one.

Saturday 16th April: 
BAE arrives in Oz early morning and along with his work colleagues arranges his own way to their hotel. Tackler will have snuck into Sydney on Friday night for a breakfast meet up on Saturday morning with BAE (maybe also to collect goods from the Krew's own international courier).
Rosskko to collect BAE from his hotel and transport him to Castle Hill aiming for a 10:00am departure for the riding group (BAE, Rosskko, indian036, Klompy, Warren C).

Koffee stop (could be Loffee if Rickmeister makes it) at the Pie In The Sky on the old Pacific Highway at approximately 10:45am. Meeting there will be Tom, Basic2, Gaz80.

Lunch stop at the Catho Pub approximately 12:30pm meeting with ainsjac and the Kaptain.

Overnight at Chez Gaz.

Sunday 17th April:
Aim for an 8:00am departure from the Hunter Valley.

Smoko (morning tea for those that speaketh the Queens english) at the Grey Gums cafe on the Putty Road approximately 10:00am.

Lunch at the Macquarie Arms Hotel in Windsor at approximately 12:30pm. Met by RT

No doubt more to come.

Cheers

Rosskko, I think Paul has brought it upon us as he was saying that he hoped our Autumn didn't cool down too quickly because he was looking forward to some warmth. Not sure if he was here today that he would be so keen on the warmth.

Woo hoo, now we're cooking! ...bring it on. The humidity is nice and low so that's another plus.

I had already planned to remove the thermal linings from my bike gear...and I'm sure I will appreciate the "summer fairing" with those sort of temperatures.

Well I stand a little sheepish, however the end result was good.
Just did a 800klm trip out west, 36 deg C one day at 20C the next. So the weather gods are at odds just at the moment.
Looking forward to next weekend. Safe trip BAE and all involved.

Rosskko I assume your post means you have obtained a blue slip for the naked RT or does it mean you want someone who has a spare blue slip to send it to you? Anyway well done mate!

Since we're now a week out from this grand occasion, Ruth and I would like to start to firm up who will be gathering at our place on Saturday evening and also who of those will be staying overnight. Anyone who is still undecided, don't be put off as everyone is welkome and if it is a last minute decision please come anyway.

So ...... this is what I have gleaned from the posts so far;

Attending Chez Gaz                                  Staying overnight
indian 036                                                       Yes
Kaptain                                                           Yes
Tom                                                                  No
Rosskko                                                            Yes
BAE                                                                   Yes
Klompy                                                               Yes
Smithy                                                               Yes
Rickmeister                                                        No

The hospitality manager at this location is thinking along the lines of a barbecue and salads but not straight steak & sausages on the plate - so at this stage no need to plan to bring food. If this changes I'll let people know.

I'll be depositing some beverages on ice early on Saturday morning before I leave home so we will have some coldies for when we first arrive.

Any special dietary considerations please PM me.

Looking forward to it.
Cheers

Not sure if you ever saw THIS post BAE, but this is what you got for a week. Or something very close to this, but probably not quite the same, but similar.

Lots of the photos have gone missing, but enough there to give you a clue.

I'm now on holidays preparing for camping with my fam . Due to parental duties , I'm still not able to confirm how flexible I am for socialising . 
At this stage with time permitting, intentions are to meet at PITS , failing that , I'll be at Catho Pub for lunch.
Possibly chaperoning a kiddly on Saturday night, and catch up with everyone on Sunday for the ride down the Putty.
Well done Rossko , hope the Bluey goes well for you.

I hadn't seen the post before. 
Crikey Rosskko - I know you said she was naked and it sure doesn't look much like a European RT - where the heck do I sit?


Great job bring her all together in time.Very Happy

Heck - this time next week, I'll be on the ride Very Happy:D:D

Just checked out the long range forecast and it's looking as good as a really good English summer (22-25 deg C with a chance of rain). Fantastic! 

Rosskko has pulled out the stops and done me proud and is lending me his RT for the week. My intention is to do the weekend ride with the Krew, as expertly planned by Gaz, and I look forward to meeting and riding with many of the Krew on the way. I am so pleased that so many of you are giving up your time to be there. 

Blessed with a bike for the whole week, I am also planning to do some after work rides - fairly local to Sydney as daylight hours will be quite short. 

Monday 18th, I am looking at riding north up to West Head, coming back via Whale beach and Manly beach - riding across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge will be quite something (the younger but much bigger brother of the Tyne Bridge at Newcastle upon Tyne, up in the NE of England, which I crossed many times during my formative years at University there back in the early 80's).

Tuesday 19th, I will head south down to Scarborough, taking the wiggly route down through the Royal National Park (Sir Bertram Stevens Drive), while I still have daylight ,and riding over the Sea Cliff Bridge before coming back up the main road.

Thanks to some incredible efforts by Gaz, I've got my Zumo GPS loaded up with Aussie maps, planned and loaded these routes already. Neither are particularly long routes, but I'm reckoning on only having about 1.5 hours of daylight.

If any of the Krew wish to (and are able to) join me, then you'd be very welcome. I figure on getting away from my hotel in Sydney by about 17:00 and am happy for others to join in along the route.

Wednesday 20th - I need to attend the conference dinner, we're taking the ferry to Manly beach (as recommended by Indian) and will enjoy the harbour lights - but sadly no riding that day.

Thursday 21st - I will need to get the bike back to Rosskko before (very sadly) having to come back home on Friday 22nd.

My daughter celebrates her 16th birthday on the 22 Apr, which unfortunately I will miss. As penance, she has signed me up for a 5km "colour me obstacle rush" fun run with her and a friend on Saturday 23rd (involves running, overcoming obstacles including (topically) inflatable kangaroos while being pelted with paint.). Not sure that I will really feel like running anywhere after getting into London Heathrow at 05:45, but it's a Dads' life!

Bring it on!

And somewhere in there is a conference to give (minimal) attention to.  Very Happy

I think your daughter and mine (affectionately known as 'the brat') would get on well. She's the one who keeps reminding me that I had a pet dinosaur when I was a child . . .

Kool number plate Rosskko!

And it's my kind of seat cover colour - if I'd known you had that I could have made you an offer as I just recently bought a new grey comfort seat cover from the UK.

BAE will love it as the weather is staying hot - just as he requested.

Cheers

Just need to fix my alternator now after a flat battery during a shakedown ride this morning.

Try the brushes first.

Gaz and the Krew and the Guest of Honour,

The yellow beast is still in several million bits and extremely unlikely to be re-assembled by next weekend. Spoke with Bro. Tom just now. I will meet the gathering at the Catho Pub for midday meal and thence later go to Chez Gaz with Tom for more drinks and K things. Will not be staying at Chez Gaz overnight. Looking forward to it immensely.

BTW...this forum is truly an amazing thing. I'm about to refit the RHS footrest plate, c/w rear brake pedal etc. The pedal return spring? Where does the other end attach? About to post...then...used the Google search function, and  'Lo and behold, the answer was there!!

See youse on Saturday!

Rickmeister.

Just checked out the long range forecast and it's looking as good as a really good English summer (22-25 deg C with a chance of rain). Fantastic!

Bring it on!
We'll fill you in on the local fauna when you get here BAE

Great to see that bike on the road again. Still remember when Col rode your bike to "klean out the cobwebs" on a trip up north.Very eventful time we had when we had to remanufacture a lower suspension part on the side of the road, on Rickmeister's machine.

Feet on the pegs, hands on the grips and I'm touching nothing else! Apart from maybe a coldie or two (with gloves on?) Very Happy

And it's my kind of seat cover colour - if I'd known you had that I could have made you an offer as I just recently bought a new grey comfort seat cover from the UK.

BAE will love it as the weather is staying hot - just as he requested.

Cheers
Looks perfect for staying Kool Very Happy . If we do get rain, I'll just tuck in behind someone with a fairing or just grin and bare (sic) it, with the emphasis on a big cheesy grin.

I think your daughter and mine (affectionately known as 'the brat') would get on well. She's the one who keeps reminding me that I had a pet dinosaur when I was a child . . .
Hmmm...best I stay awake for the conference, especially as I am chairing at least one of the technical sessions and contributing to the rest. I will rely on my colleagues nudging me every now and again...and lots of coffee!

Daughters are funny beasts - I enjoy some good banter with mine. Self depreciating humour seems to work well given that they all assume that anyone that was around before they pitched up, must have been a product of the stone age. Mine keep badgering me about a holiday in Australia (and New Zealand), so who knows they may get to meet your daughter some day.

Totally agree about daughters. 

My daughter is somewhat closer to you than me. She lives in France near Luxembourg with her French husband. We'll be visiting for most of June and July.

One thing that BAE should be aware of is that in our state we have an opportunity to ride together as a group. In Queensland, due to their anti bike laws, groups of greater than 2 are regarded as gangs and therefore open to all sorts of attention.
Imagine the police up there trying to export BAE back to the Mother Country for being sociable. At least when the English came here, free one way trip, there may have been a stolen hanky involved.

Ainsjac - thanks for the reassurance. It would be kind of embarrassing to be put on the first flight home for wanton sociability with fellow K's. I don't want to draw any unnecessary police attention whatsoever - I've nothing to hide, but you never know what I could be "fitted up" with!

Watch out for stolen hankies being planted on you!


With any luck, it may even be clean.

Hi all! Update for Saturday afternoon/evening at Chez Gaz.

Just bring your drinks - all other requirements have been taken care of.

We are looking forward to the catch up and meeting some new faces (well at least one that I can think of).

Cheers

For those going to lunch tomorrow be aware that the road to the pub is shut. You need to go to Flowers Road turnoff and use it instead. Some may have to do more Ks on their Ks to have a feed and drink.

This is looking good.....wish I was there kind of thing. Right now Paul as in BAE is somewhere on the second leg after his tube stop methinks.

Sun is out here and an absolutely perfect K day.

Now that the precedent of visitors travelling has been well set hope we will be seeing more of you guys up here.

We have this Wild Atlantic Way that is truly lovely and BAE has traversed most of it by now. Bill [Indian 036] organised some great sunny weather for his visit in March 2015 and was rewarded with a sunny evening through the Sally Gap at the end of a great day. We managed to get BAE to the same place too, also a nice sunny day. He caught a dose of the Kpox on that because when we eventually got to our destination he bought another K, the one that led Bill and myself on our trip through the Sally Gap.

The one important thing...ride safe on this weekend.
