Light to medium constant rain today right across the region so the Hunter Krew will be reveling in it on their way from Borrowa to Robertson today. I'm sure Rosskko will be with them.

I'm heading south at sparow's fart tomorrow morning to catch up with Waz and then up the hill to Robertson for the Krew's 9am departure from RT's.
The weather forcast says it will be a wet day. I was going to take the 'new-to-me' '88 K100RT for a spin but Sweet Thing has new Battlax T30 Evos front and back which should give me a bit more grip in the wet.

Every one arrived safely if not a bit wet, Indian Bill last to arrive in the dark. Waz dropped in on his way home.
Looks like we will check the radar tomorrow to figure out a plan. Could be playing pool at the Bowlo if it stays
dismal. A good time assured or your money back.
Not too many tents being pitched, but the workshop floor around the fireplace is getting a bit crowded.

Having the shortest run home, I arrived half an hour ago, despite leaving half an hour after everyone else.

Thanks, everyone, for a great time. Sorry we couldn't arrange the weather better. Maybe next time, whenever, wherever.
Various people made comments about having to rename the forum, since we had one K100 8V and one K100 4V or 16V depending on your naming preference. All the rest were 75s or 1100s. We won't mention the HD that Waz rode up on, since the K wasn't co-operating. Good to have the Kompany, whatever you travel on. Right, Stan?

Bob and Sharon, thanks so much for your hospitality. We certainly found the fog we were warned of, but fortunately not the wombats. The warmth of the hosts and venue made up for the cold, rain and wind.

As mentioned, a collection was started to make a donation to the GIST research mob as per "in lieu of flowers" at RossKKo's funeral.
If anyone wants to add to the total before I pass it on, PM me and I'll send you my PayPal details.

Bill

As always, Bob and Sharons's warm hospitality and commitment to the K100-forum group was outstanding. A fantastic spread of food plus warm and dry accommodations.
Sorry Bob, yet again I didn't get around to carving my name in your table. I promise I'll bring my pen knife next time Laughing

Smithy and I got separated from the group after Saturday lunch and so had a bit of reccy of the local roads on our way back to RT's and found our way toBadgery's Lookout just South of Talong.

Smurfette and Sweet Thing saddled up for the run back home Sunday morning.

Great weekend was had and Rick and I arrived home safely early afternoon. The wettish ride from Booroowa to Robbo was , well, a bit damp. The sleeping arrangements in RT's workshop were first class. Thank you Sharon, Bob, Sandra and Brian for making this a fantastic weekend. Waz, the HD did not seem out of place at all nor did Stan's tin top. Cheers Tom

Another great get together as always with this fine bunch of people, with this particular gathering in memory of one of the finest people we have known, our very own Rosskko.

The Hunter Krew of Rickmeister, Tom and myself along with our northern colleagues Rick G and Smithy set out on Thursday morning kind of expecting rain from the forecast but hoping that we might get a dry day. Compliments to everyone for arriving at the meeting point early and we were rolling by 7:20am. First stop was a coffee break (can't call it koffee as we had a very swish looking R1200RT in our ranks) at the Grey Gums Cafe on the Putty Road, then onto Colo Heights for a quick top up of the fuel tanks before heading up into the Blue Mountains for the run across to Lithgow via the Bells Line of Road. The drop in temperature was very noticeable as we climbed up into the mountains but we had a good run to our lunch/fuel stop just south of Lithgow at South Bowenfels.

After lunch we toured down a variety of sealed country roads through the localities of Tarana, O'Connell and Perthville then turned south to go via Trunkey Creek and Tuena to Crookwell for afternoon tea. The 5 kms of smooth hard packed dirt road on this leg was in excellent condition although I think it would have been a nightmare after the rain on Friday/Saturday. Just to prove that we had some dry riding on the way south here is a photo of the bikes gathered in Crookwell before the final sprint of the day across to Boorowa.


On arrival at the pub in Boorowa about 4:45pm and with just over 600kms under the wheels we were greeted by RT who had made the trip up from Robertson to join in the socialising on Thursday evening. Once again the Boorowa pub proved to be a very hospitable venue.

Alas! the conditions that had been forecast were upon us when we ventured out on Friday morning. High winds and rain lashed us as we headed south. The journey was interrupted by my bike losing the instruments and charge light coming on shortly after leaving Boorowa (just after turning on the heated grips) but I had no intention of stopping on the road in those conditions until the battery wouldn't run it anymore and thankfully I made it to Yass where I could get under cover to check it. Sure enough the #1 fuse was blown. Spares under the seat so replaced, restarted and off we go chasing Rick G who had continued on (don't blame him for wanting to limit the time he spent on the road in those conditions).

We got down to Marulan and pulled in to the service centre to get out of the rain and warm up a little. Along that section my heated grips were mis-behaving (like coming on when the switch was off) adding weight to my suspicion they were the cause of my blown fuse. When we started up for the last leg into Robertson my fuse was blown again; same routine (I had half a dozen spares) to get started and it immediately blew but with engine running I ignored it and headed to RT's place. We were all very pleased to get under cover at RT's and out of our saturated riding gear. Later inspection with tank off revealed a short in the resistor harness of my grips - easily removed for later repair and I was back in business for Saturday riding.

As others have reported the accommodation in the workshop at RT's was warm and dry and very much appreciated. Despite the weather a pleasant evening ensued.

Saturday was not much better than Friday in regard to weather in the morning which played havoc with Bill's plans for our lunch and ride route. So after getting to Goulburn where Al-58 and Marie caught up with us the remainder of the route was abandoned and most headed back to RT's after lunch. The weather improved as we returned and Holister and Smithy were brave enough to go touring and enjoyed a great afternoon riding.

GroverK and Klompy got in soon after dark following their attendance at the Blue Boxer Charity event in Newcastle to join us all in a great evening around the long table at RT's.

As we dispersed on Sunday morning Rick G, Tom, Smithy, GroverK and myself took the direct route back to the Hunter and I arrived home at about 2:00pm.

Thanks to all for the kompany over a memorable weekend.

Cheers

Hello All;
I cannot add much more to Gaz's well written novella other than the Blue Boxer get together went well despite the threat of torrential downpour and the 60 knot cross wind which does wonder to the barn door that is the K1100LT fairing, Seani was there also but being an ex Guyra guy was not affected by any climate change....it was 22 degrees when Ed ( grover ) and I left Nelson's Bay but by the time we hit Robo it was about 8 degrees ...we found it very very refreshing. We were perfectly timed for the "great feast" and merriment and 5 stars may not be enough for this establishment Casa Turner is the business. Thanks Bob and Sharon I always feel at home in your home...although black lab chose not to sleep with me due no doubt to the snoring...mine of course.

I left on my todd on Sunday morning for a number of reasons one of which was a function I had organised at the Officers' mess but as we ( RossKKo and I ) travelled back we stopped and chatted at some lovely spots on the way.

Life goes on guys and girls and let us not waste a day of it. looking forward to our next get together where I will present The "RossKKo" flask which we can carry to all our events in the knowledge that our mate is always with us....and of course a scattering in an appropriate setting.

Thanks to you all for being who you are, no 2 people the same but no one different to the other...we are lucky to know us.

Cheers KKlompy ( see 2 K's it is the rules when you have 2 K's)

Great reports guys.
A top weekend was had by the krew,with typical Rosskko style weather!
A big thankyou to RT and he's wife for the terrific hospitality.

This is a short video showing the country side and fantastic road between Crookwell and Boorowa. This was part of the great route that Gaz had planned as the long cut to Robertson for the Rosskko ride, well done Gaz that was a fantastic ride on Thursday with great roads and scenery.
Trying to keep Rickmeister in my sights, sorry about the shaky camera I don't think it's mount is rated above 140/ 160 kms.
Will edit more video later.

Backing up what has been said above. A terrific weekend, great kompany, wonderful hosts who went to a great deal of trouble and effort to house and feed us all. Looking forward immensely to the next K(R) ride, probably up north to sunny Guyra in November.

Went to the doc this arvo...barbed wire pull through...all this gunk came out of my head!! I can hear again!!!

Thanks again to Bob and Sharon, Brian and Sandra...well done!!

(BTW..must get down to the pool hall and do some serious practice...losing 2-1 against Smithy at the moment, about to change at the next opportunity!)

had a top weekend , involving setting up a charity event in the rain , and catching gazebo's in the wind .
Followed by a ride south to RT's , taking in afternoon tea with RossKKo's lovely family . Still not an easy time for them , we did however share a few smiles together.
It was then on the road again to dodge windblown obstacles to arrive in the coolness that is the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, and the home of Mr and Mrs Turner.
We were greeted with much warmth as we shared a delightful meal and company with many of whom were remembering RossKKo.
We appreciate very much the time Klompy has offered of himself to assist in Rosskko's affairs . This is by no means an easy undertaking by anyone .
Hopefully the thoughts shared on saturday evening will help bring a peaceful rest for Rosskko.
thankyou Bill for bringing this ride together.
The return journey home was to my in laws to share in fathers day . this topped off a most enjoyable weekend .
I must say thankyou to our hosts at Casa Turner, the lodgings were most welcoming , and the gracious meal a treat to remember .
thankyou to all for this special RossKKo moment.


After returning home from picking up Smurfette from the RossKKo residence , I found RossKKo's cap in the ducktail .
It is seen here resting on Smurfette , and so shall continue to be a part of the rides shared with the Krew .

I once sat in a ( funeral ) service , where the minister reflected on a farmers akubra hat .
The hat if it were to talk , would tell of all the places the farmer had been , and all the things the farmer had seen and heard.
Just think what this hat of RossKKo's would say .


Noticeable in the photo of Sweet Thing and Smurfette ( the bikes , not the blokes) is the positioning of the bars . Although the lower position was good at first , I have needed to adjust them on Smurfette to accommodate for recent injuries. Longer rides are needing less force on the shoulders . Other than that Smurfette is a lovely bike to share a ride with . The 1100 Klub certainly has grown somewhat here in Oz .

Cheers and thankyou .

Classic fuse No. 1 symptoms - loss of instruments and worrying charge light on...but actually no impact on bike continuing to run, as long as you keep it running.

Sounds like the annoying blowing fuse syndrome could be another Rosskko-ism (in addition to the rainy weather) - if you recall, I was plagued by a repeatedly blowing of fuse no. 2 while down under on his neekid RT. Good to hear that you had topped up your fuse supply Garry, after I had tried depleting them! How annoying would that have been?!

Great reports Gaz and all - such a shame about the inclement weather, but really excellent to hear that so many of you still travelled from so far afield, and by any means, to join the gathering. Sounds like Mr & Mrs RT did you all proud.

Definitely a growing K1100 chapter coming together down there. Good onya!

Another fine production Smithy and great sound track. Beautiful twisty road, best enjoyed dry. You did well to keep up.

I never realised that the gap between the double white lines was actually a special lane in the centre of the road!! Trouble is, over here in the UK it often has lots of mini speed bumps installed (aka "cats eyes") which make the going a little rough.

Aside from having spare fuses everybody should invest on one or two of these circuit breakers.
If you are blowing a fuse, you may have to replace it many times before finding the cause of the trouble. A circuit breaker will reset itself. Just plug it instead of the fuse for the time of the troubleshooting.
Bussman circuit breakers

Glad to hear that everybody had a terrific time. Yes Rosskko wil stay with us for many years Laughing
As for changing the forum name, this would be a bit difficult. However, we have always accepted people riding all kinds of K bikes.
What I may do is to create a new section for the K1100.

Cheers,

Bert

I also endorse all the comments on our recent trip south. Thanks to our hosts. Not only did I go in a tintop, I also had a camera.

On arrival, the meeting place, RT's little shed.

Dinner at the bowlo.


Parking bay

Gaz ordering more fuses to be flown in.

A rare photo of Rickmeister and frontal of his bike.

Not only us who missed RossKKo.

Smithy supplied these.

My tin top was certified to come on this trip. I was also certified.

Waz trying to convince us that this was the new version of a K.

What is all this shiny stuff?



Loffee stop Saturday

Another great weekend done and dusted washed and sloshed.
Thanks to RT and Sharon, Sandra and Brian and Mr Tom. I will collect the various things left behind or at least swap them for other things.

Crazy Frog - great tip on using the circuit breakers to get through the fault finding process.

It's one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" tips but another example of what the forum is all about - sharing our knowledge and experiences with like minded people.

Thanks

Aside from having spare fuses everybody should invest on one or two of these circuit breakers.
If you are blowing a fuse, you may have to replace it many times before finding the cause of the trouble. A circuit breaker will reset itself. Just plug it instead of the fuse for the time of the troubleshooting.


Cheers,

Bert

Here's another range of those mini circuit breakers that are available in both 7.5A and 15A to suit our bikes and colour coded to match therelevant fuse size to make it easier for us mature folk.

Mini circuit breakers

It looks like Aussies can buy them here.

I'll order some and let others know if it works out.

Good find Blakey! I was about to order some online from Victoria and just hesitated at the last minute with the $15 postal charge for a $6 item.

We have Jaycar in Maitland so I'll lob in there to check them out.

Cheers

Gaz,

They are probably kept behind the counter and not on the shelf. I bought some last time Mr Blakey mentioned them. Essential part of the toolkit now.

Whatever you do, keep away from the blanc zip ties. Grab some Deoxit as well.

Hello guys and girls;
Update on the final resting place of our best friend RossKKo will be the Far Kairn rally and I have secured an appropriate flask to carry and can be relayed from one person to another...the flask will always be passed over full of grog as suggested by Sandra and a toast can be given to absent friends on that occassion...it is a sturdy unit like the K's that we ride and I expect it will travel for many years to come.




look forward to seeing many of you at the Far Kairn.

That's great Klompy. For those thinking about attending the Far Kairn, there is no need to preregister, just check the location on the form and turn up. I'll be heading out on the Friday (16th) from the lower mountains if anyone wants to join us. Heading to the rally site at Tottenham on the Friday.

I have informed the pres that the ashes may be spread at the site.

Al

I'm keen to sample my new aldi tent and camp chair , which missed out on the action at RT's last weekend .
Al , I'm not sure of which day I'm travelling yet or which way out .
hopefully someone can sway me in the right direction .
Kklompy that looks just great and alongside a Red Nekkid K100 is just fitting for the occasion . well done .

Hi all,

Having now finished election work, I can turn my mind to other things.

Contributions were made on the ride weekend towards a joint donation to the GIST research crowd, from the K100 forum in memory of RossKKo. I propose to forward the money towards the end of next week.

If anyone wants to add to the joint donation, please PM me for my paypal details, as I think that would be the easiest way to receive further contributions. If that's not possible for you, I'm sure other arrangements can be made.

Bill

The donation for GIST research was made this evening. USD200 = AUD262.
Thanks to all who contributed, including one especially generous donor.

Some details redacted for my privacy, but nowhere was my name included - only K100 forum.
