I will supply all the hot coffee and beverages (non alcoholic) required. No more booze for me due to the new black dog repellent I'm on. I have no objection to anybody bringing their own re-hydration fluids with them but remember you do have to ride home.

What time should I be in Warwick? If you are going straight to Rick's I can just wait at the intersection of the highway. If you want fuel or coffee, we can meet somewhere.

No worries. Does someone know where Rick lives? I have been there, but it was years ago. I know which road he is on, but not the number.

a good trip was hadsome pics of the ride today

which started off on a particularly mild day for around these parts , quite strange indeed ..


after meeting Matt at Goodna on his gs , off up the road to find Andrew , who turned up dead on time

of corse the stretch up the hill was tempered by many vehicles heading off for a long weekend up here, but glorious weather to be out and about with mates on bikes


but objective achieved and found Woody at Warwick with his k75







then off up the hills further and found Ricks place , out along the road and good to see Rick and Margaret again



after a warm welcome , scones , strawberry jam and coffee was our reward




not long after a stranger from the southern regions appeared young seani , with the hillbillys (dogs ) in tow , in the sidecar



after a bit of banter and reminiscing over a good tea cake and drinks we posed for the group shot to send back to the endurance legends folks in "blighty " next weekend , just a small contribution to the international camaraderie that we share amongst uson k bikes .



so that's "saxon 7 , Woody , Pegasus , Mathew in Brisbane and RickG ... of corse "Bella " the long time companion - riding partnerof seanii sittingin the shot ..(couldn't find seamus the dog at this time )

seani obliged and got me in a pic as well, thanks mate .



a pretty uneventful trip back down the hill with woody dropping off at warwick again , Andrew doing some exploring back up around Stanthorpe maty and myself heading back down the gap in the hills

a sweet 500 +odd kilometers there and back , and back before dark ...win

great to meet some new faces and to reacquaint with good mates
the Tshirt sent by Frank Miles and Ben Kingham with many great thanks and appreciation


many thanks to all that could male it and rick and marg for putting up with us

Bella really has become an accomplished photo bomber!
Was good to have a catch up with people and meet some new ( to me) faces.
It was a good ride along the top of the tablelands and back, some of my favourite riding country as far as scenery is concerned.
Thanks to Rick and Margaret for their hospitality again!
