Ed and I are meeting up for a coffee so we thought we may as well make it a gathering. So what suits most, Saturday 25/11/17 or Sunday 26/11/17. Coffee will be at Robertson or if time permits depending on how far people have to travel, a ride through Kangaroo Valley to Cambewarra lookout. Let me know your thoughts.

  Cheers
  Andrew

I think I'm clear for this.  It would be either/or, no real preference.
Unless the BMW club magazine becomes a monster that weekend!

I have a parcel to pick up from young Waz , thought a coffee might be a good ground breaker.
weather is not looking too inspiring for this weekend , and I need my parcel before the end of November. 
Cambewarra is shocking in the wet . I was slipping sideways last time I went up to the lookout . Maybe Scarborough as a backup .

Nigel are you heading in to the Sydney Bike Show that weekend .

I'm easy either way. I wouldn't worry about the weather yet though it's a week away. Saying that though it's belting down here at the moment Laughing. Nice little storm going on

Too easy. How about Saturday 25th at Robbo pie shop at 12 and we'll work out where we want to go from there or stay at the pie shop?. If anyone wants to meet me at 11 at Albion Park for the run up the Pass let me know and we'll work something out.

Sí, correcto Ed
My daughter has a stand at the MotoExpo that weekend. I'm on duty for all the heavy lifting and shop-fit Rolling Eyes .
Anyone heading to the MotoExpo at the ICC Darling, call into the Black Arrow Moto Gear stand and say Hola! Cool

I'll be close enough Nigel , unfortunately not in time whilst it is open . Never been to a show like that before , would be an eye opener first time around .

Keen to catch up with the Gong krew next weekend .
I'm thinking of a quick trip up to the Mount Keira lookout on my way into Wollongong. If anyone else is up to it . 
I should be there by 10am . this will still give us time to be at Albion Park by 11.

Not sure who else is coming but we'll be at Albion Park Caltex ( western end of A.Park ) around 11am. We'll be at Robo pie shop between 11.30 and 12.

Luckily for me I'm not working tomorrow.
My vote would be the baker in town, just west past the only traffic lights and Pizza place. Better parking and better pies, great cream buns and apple turnovers with cream . Not that I go there much. 
I'll just waddle down to whichever you choose.

Thanks for the Koffee invite Andrew . 
I had a top day out yesterday as we met up with the krew at Robertson .
I headed south from home around 6am , following the coast road . 
As I made my way out of Sydney , the Royal National Park beckoned my attention . Never been through there before . The road surface was magnificent , good wide tarred areas.






Stanwell Tops lookout is always a nice stopover as you head south. The now infamous Seacliff Bridge snakes along the ocean cliff face .


relatively quiet at 9am on a saturday morning.

Been wanting to get up to the Mt Keira lookout for a while , finally made it . It certainly provides some good views along the Wollongong coastline .


Meeting up with Andrew at Mt Keira lookout on his first forum outing .


Flagstaff Hill on the waterfront at Wollongong .


Looking back towards the Mt Keira lookout and escarpment.


Rolled in to Robertson around midday . 


Koffee session underway .
Andrew , Gaz Tom and Waz   ( RT and Al facing away)


Andrew was very keen to get as much info into his head as he could absorb . keep reading through the forum pages Andrew. 
I'm sure we will all catch up again for koffee as time permits.


Thanks to Waz for passing on my new lid , just in time for the Toy Run next weekend . sKooter boy.





A few good tight hairpins on the Macquarie Pass , between Wollongong and Robertson .





A brief look back at the Macquarie Pass National Park as I make my way back along the coast and into Sydney , where I catch up with Alex McCarthy and his Police bikes .


The HARS airfield Museum 

A Roulette on display




Smurfette sizing herself up against a Qantas  Kwantas Boeing 747. Impressive .... 
Can anyone name that blue car in the far right corner.
 


A top morning out with the Krew . 

The day finished off with a visit to Alex and a review of his Police parade.
On arrival Alex spotted a blown / leaking brake hose on the rear caliper of Smurfette , fluid on the tyre everywhere . 
A somewhat cautious ride home , trying to avoid any heavy front braking , there was no rear brake pressure available at all.
Finally home around 11.30pm . Tired but safe .
I have the week off , so Ill be salvaging the rear caliper and hose from Ol' NBlue ( 89 K100LT) and fitting it to Smurfette . Hopefully in time for next weekends Toyrun , and my visit to Mr Klompy to check out some crash bars .

It always amazes me how nice photos from other parts of the world look until you see piccies of your own back yard and realise how nice it really is.






  I work around here 5 days a week and take it for granted.

Thought it may have been Cant Remember A Fuckin Thing or more commonly called CRAFT beer.
