The last time I went, I picked up a plastic scale model kit of a K100.

I'm going to try and get there early, so I can get all the best Brick stuff. I think there were two K bits last year. I did however meet up with TacKler. Looking forward to it I'll be wearing a BMW cap with K75s on the sides. Approach and say " Wild Bricks bloom in spring" and I'll give you the counter sign " Only when the wind blows from the north"

Regards Martin.

such is the stuff of legends

without the typical whine on approach you would never know it was a beemer at all

I didn't think you guys would go for wearing a frangipani behind your left ear. So I went with the alternative.

I was talking to a mate yesterday evening who was going to the swap meet. He has a mate in the Hysterical Historical Motorcycle Club and there is a possibility that the meet may be postponed due to weather. I won't find out until later today. I will post anything on the outcome, if and when I get the information. But looking at weather predictions it is not looking good.
Regards Martin.

The thought of hundreds of people walking around the wet and soggy showgrounds would put the organisers off a bit I would imagine.

Thanks for letting us know.

I was given the phone number of the guy that is selling at the swap meet by my mate. I couldn't get him on his mobile so I rang his home number and got his wife. She informed me that he is already up there. So at this stage I'll wait till tomorrow, and decide whether or not to take the Brick. A mate has offered to give me a ride up in his ute if I decide not to ride. This morning the sun came out so I decided to go and fill up and then go to dump day and catch up with a couple of mates. I filled up and then got a free wash and blow dry, the skies opened up and the wind gusts nearly pushed me into the next lane. I don't mind riding in the rain but the strong wind gusts were a bit scary. I'll post again before I leave in the morning.
Regards Martin.

Just got back from the swap meet, I caught up with Charlie and John who eventually arrived late having slept in. A fair bit more brick stuff than previous years. Both Charlie and John got some good deals. The weather wasn't too bad on the way up a couple of showers but not enough to bother stopping and putting on the wet weather gear. Rained a bit at the meet but not enough to put a damper on it. On the trip home again a couple of showers but still not enough to go for the wet weather gear. That was until I got to North Lakes and decided to pick up a couple of things from Aldi. As I was walking back to the bike with my purchases the heavens opened and within a minute I was soaked, I hate soggy jocks. I enjoyed the day and can now put faces to a couple of names.
Regards Martin.

It was great to meet you and Charlie as well Martin.

I didn't sleep in because I wasn't in bed. I just went to sleep on the lounge after being awake for 24 hours.
It probably saved me from spending more money.

thanks for the komeraderie guys

martins black 75s is quite the picture . with a few favourable comments from passersby whilst we were hanging round


hit a couple of rain events on the way up

got some cheap goodies

visited Blakey on the way back (blooming piker ) grin , perhaps pine rivers swap meet might be on his radar for next time , when it comes around

I talked to a couple of the guys with k100 stuff for sale ...who had brought just a small sample of goodies along ..perhaps they may bring a wider selection next time ???

on the way home I guess I hit one of the big storm fronts that martin was referring to ...about Caboolture pretty heavy stuff ...and later a few more fronts came inalong the way ..not all bad at all behind that big rt -lt fairing , same as usual just knees and lower soaked through , wasn't going to stop for wets to put on ..
