hi Guys ,
we better get organised for a local meet in the coming weeks , twb is in the area apparently except the week of the 13th-14th  (next weekend -week )

the banners will be travelling south again in just a months time , to connect up with our southern brothers , handover to occur at the New England ride event  .

martin , do we have any local swap meets on the radar this month ?  I have a feeling that the formally  Gatton swap meet is now held at Laidley , could be on the radar ...maybe 27th - 28th  of October ?

if so ...does this sound like a suitable place for us to get together ?

we could make a bit of a ride event of it , for our northern coast members , with perhaps a meet point at woodford or Dayboro , travelling through somerset , esk , whatever, back to fernvale .... where we could meet others  about 8.30 am , then onto Laidley for an arrive time of 9.30 ish
to be honest the sunday part of the Laidley swap meet  is done and dusted , with most vendors clearing out about lunch time ...but it is a destination worthwhile exploring with likely catering still in place for us to enjoy . well a feed at least  ...giggles

I was just thinking that john ( black brick ) has issues with Saturdays ...yes he's already signed the banner but just thought to mention it . would really love to get the pics from john of the nz bert munroe challenge and banner travels . to pass onto Ed and the forum banner thread
but open to other options like Saturday meet .

options and thoughts please

would be good to see some names added to both of the banners from around the greater Brisbane area

regards
Charlie

I'm free the weekends of 20 & 21 October, also 27 & 28th. I should be back from Mexico by the 19th. It'd be great to meet up with newer members since I departed our land girt by sea six years ago.

Charlie Laidley swap meet is on the 27th and 28th of Oct. However I am heading off on 19th of Oct for approximately 4 weeks of driving holiday. Driving from here down to Vic to visit rellies and mates, then off to Tas for a couple of weeks. Up until my departure I'm available every day except Tuesdays and Fridays.
Regards Martin.

No worries Charlie, you wouldn't happen to have a spare fuel cap in your stash. I went to fill up the other day and couldn't open the cap. I did the hole drill trick, and when I pulled it apart I found one of the two engagement pins had broken off. I managed to drill it out and glued in a cut down pop rivet shaft. It should do until I find a replacement.
Regards Martin.

how about a trip to Dayboro  sunday 14th ,

hope to catch Martin before he departs on his car trip

proposed meet time of about 9.30 am

this is not to say that the Laidley swap meet may not eventuate 

but in the short time frame left this is all I can suggest

martin has suggested a tour through the guild  (not far off ) could also be arranged

rain is forecast but this as we know is sporadic and usually is an afternoon event

Charlie I'm in, where do you want to meet in Dayboro. The normal spot seems to be the bakery.
Regards Martin.

just an update

particularly crap weather last 2 days

hope it fines overnight , the weather map sorta says it should clear ...but we've seen this before ...when it blows back to where it came from

but in any case will be heading off about 8,ish for Dayboro

will be peed off if its raining …  as gerty will get another blast of road grime  all over the polished bits ...hahaha …

martin has a plan to go to the guild place behind petrie ...not far off from Dayboro … and a few may join in from around the area  for the meet , but may change pending rain still around

fingers crossed that it fines

Rain what rain?? Although it was humid enough to form large drops which fell occasionally. We had a lovely picnic under the bakeries umbrella. This was followed by a lecture in brick fault finding and how to load and tie down a motorcycle onto the back of a tilt tray. RACQ response time was a blistering 3 hours. Sleep
Regards Martin.

the old girl cleans up well after a modest bit of attention   after that good soaking with road grime slathered all over the shiney bits , from last weekends jaunt through the rain








don't forget  meet at Laidley swap meet next weekend on Saturday  27th ...for signing of the banners before they head southwards again  

possibly twb maybe back in the area by then , but sounds like he's having a blast down south of the borders .so don't count on it ...grin

for some of the Brisbane folks southside I will be planning on leaving the Caltex at Goodna about 8.00 am ish  for an arrive time of about 9.00 am ish at Laidley

any way you can . doesn't have to be a k ...see you there

thinking of heading up to rickgs place this weekend , weather has taken a nice clear turn last couple of days

I will be rolling into the SE Qld region on or about the 27th of this month and would love to catch up. Prolly hit the New England highway going north but want to traverse Bells Line, the Putty & Thunderbolts again after leaving this area (in Victoria now).

no Sean ...not yet ...but may see it in the not too distant future , all being well ..ive booked a few extra days off work for some exploring the new England area before and after the tablelands ride ..

maybe find a cheep shack down that ways …

looking for water maybe a creek  and hills rather than a totally flat landscape

thanks for the comment about the old girl
