Ok. Third time lucky. Posting up these photos and they just don't wanna work.
And I had such a funny and witty commentary with each one. Guess you will just have to take my word on that.

So. Charlie, Alby and Nic stayed Thursday night.

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04938

Lets see how far we go.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04939

Beautiful day for a ride
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04940

Until you get into the traffic. Smile Alby Smile
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04941

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04942

Fuel stop. Pheasants Nest. Alby's trailer, my /2 and Gerty.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04943

If you are going to take photos on the move, make sure your big fingers are out of the way.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04944

A big sheep and an explanation.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04945
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04946

This is more like it. Despite the lovely blue sky and bright sunshine I was freezing my butt off. Still not going to put a fairing on.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04947

This is Lake George. If you zoom in really close and look really hard you still won't see any water.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04948

This is a road and there are trees. And Ks
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04949

More road. More trees. Same Ks
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04950

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04951

Another road. Probably the same road actually.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04952

Fuel stop. Cooma. Just before the real riding began. Nic and Alby.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04953

Before we got to this little gem of a ride I thought I was cold. This place was cold
And it will be ridden again during daylight hours. What a fantastic bit of tar.

Part 2.

Kiandra.
Stopped here at about 5.20pm and put on the warm gear. Unfortunately I was already wearing all mine so I took the photos.
Charlie warming his hands over an imaginary camp fire. Or rubbing two sticks together to light his smoke.
So at this point we are about 5km from the turn off taking us to the nice warm pub in Khankoban. Stupidly we ignored the turn off and continued on another 90km to Tumut where we had to refuel and retrace our steps.
Thankfully the local council thought fit to warn us of the dangers of driving/ riding these roads at night.
Danger.
Kangaroos.
And emus.
And wombats.
And brumbies
thankfully all but a stray wombat stayed to the side of the road and out of our way, but it is a bit off putting seeing one appear on the edge of your beam.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04956
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04957

This is that little patch of...lets call it heaven as it would have been if we could see it.


So we made it to Khankoban. Only took 13 hours. No solid food in sight so we had a few steaks in a glass.
Then this little fella met us in the morning.

Then it was off again.
Charlie, Alby, Nic and Andyb
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04959

And Halo
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04960

And a very nice bike in front of some very nice scenery
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04961

Then it was breakfast time. Vegemite on toast all round. Even for Bella.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04962

Don't try this at folks home. Trained professionals here.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04963

This is safe to do yeah?
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04964

A road. More trees. Different Ks
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc04965

Saxon (Sean & Bella) declared this as a designated photo stop so here is my designated photo.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05012

Damn you blue sky and brilliant sunshine for ruining my photos.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05013

Thats better.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05014

A stop.
Charlie, Halo, Bella and Sean
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05015

Then off again on another road with power poles and different Ks again. the fun just never stops. It is still cold btw.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05016

And this is what Andyb looks like when he is stalking you from behind.
I guess this must be Tallangatta Creek.

A road

A fuel stop. Andyb, Halo, rossco, Alby and Sean at the pump.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05020

Finally they let me go out in front. Stupid camera strap.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05021

Narrandera Hotel. You would think they would be happy to see us. Maybe Sean is smiling? Probably not.
Alby, Halo, Mr Klompy, Marg, RickG, Sean (back to camera) Nic (barely visible) Ainsjac (Stan)

Not surprising to see a crowd around the /2. More surprising to see me with my mouth closed.

Halo, Bella and Sean.
For the last time you cannot sleep with my dog!!!!!!

Mr Klompy and Waz.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05034

After that the camera went flat. Just enough juice when I got home for one last photo. For those playing along at home that is 1713km for the weekend. time for a bath and a beerbon.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dsc05035

Excellent weekend. Great weather and fantastic company as always. Looking forward to September.

Just uploaded a bit of video. Alby, Sean and Charlie. All zorsted.

well the above pictures by rossko have said it all ...some fantastic pics mate ....thanks for taking the time and sharing

a fantastic run with some great friends ...and thanks to seanii for recommending the "khancoban" meet point ...unreal.....although i would have loved to see the road in down the hills and dams ...in daylight ...

oh well ! we all had a great time and more the pleasure to ride with friends, from khancoban to neranderra as a group . rickmeister , rt and pete turned up within a few minutes of the main group arriving .

for us queenslanders ....the road was a long one... but enjoyable (alby and nic are still out there enjoying the sights some where in western New South Wales) ....awesome !

for me ....expected leave time was about 4.00 pm to meet nic and alby... off in the tourist back routes of Warwick ...(some 150 ks west and south for me ) ....pity was i didnt knock off work till 8.00 pm and leave home till 9.00 pm .

gerty passed her 200,000 k mark on the way there somewheres (what an amazing acheivement from the old girl )

arriving somewhere after 11.00 pm ....not knowing exactly where i was

as morning broke i had a bit of a look around

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-011

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-012

packing up ready for the road south

we passed seaniis place at guyra .....some 3-400 k south .....hoping to meet bella for nic to pat ..

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-013

where's bella ?



of corse we had to stop some way down the road to admire the scenery of the tablelands dropoff into the coastal hinterland May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-014

for me ...tired as all hell, (as the excitement and expectations of the trip had taken its toll on this old fella ) especially the late arrival at warwick and the big ride south to make a point meet with rossko in sydney had us stopping quite frequently ....but we made it

what a great welcome ....rossko and family did a brilliant job at making us all feel at home ...and also providing a welcome bed and food for the "banana benders" heading south ... thanks mate, really appreciate it ...huggs and stuff for the missus etc

next day had us heading south still further ...fuel p at phesent nest and on to golbourn ...little detoure via the gaol at berrima ....grin ...sheeesh it was only an additional 5 ks (besides its all heritage stuff ...over 150 years old and sandstone and all ) just to break up the boredom of the big highway....honest !

a break at the "big marino" was a great break from the featurless road of concrete and paint markings .

canberra acheived. it was onto the southern regions and "cooma" the last "fill" before heading up the mountains

awesome is all i can say ...rickmeister and rt were right ....must do this again in good light

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-015

just about last light as we hit kiandra

a little bypass of over 160 ks had us returned to nearly the same place ......this time heading down the hill

through some awesomly twisty and dark surroundings

after an eternity ..."khancoban" was acheived

the warmth of the pub was awesome ...and to meet past friends and new was fantastic

halo , andy and seanii were well primed

the "group house " was reached ...with lots of banter and comearadreie, seanii isolated by distance off in the backlots

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Img_1311

some great scenery ...if you got up early enough

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Img_1312

along the road after a confusion event

me and seanii, rossko caught up with the rest of the mob ...then onto woodonga .....along that fantastic road of nice sweepers along the valley of the "Murray River " awesome !

caught up with alby at woodonga amd headed north ...along some extreemly straight roads ......the like i have not seen before ....for many many kilometers

nerandera acheived .....ulrick, rt and pete arriving verry soon after

the old pub at night

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-017

halo inspects the menu .....verry suspiciously modified ...(which i said allowd ...not knowing staff in attendance )

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-018

the shot "

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Img_1410

the other shot ...where we took over the street



May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-019

we set up for a good breakfast in the main street ...then broke up with friends heading north, south and east

pete , ulrick ,rt and i heading towards the northeast ....at 5k revs avarerage for many a killometer or so

we parted ways at Temora ....but met again at the air museam

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-020

me heading back towards harden -murrumburra and then onto yass and canberra ...

the boys heading more north

a stop at canberra then sydney had me heading north again towards home ...just another 1000 k to go

woohoo ...a big ride

May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 2013-022

add another few ks and there you have it ......how to do it with friends.................. enjoy guys !!!

most commended

The event reminded me of how much we are an international group. Sean was seen in the carpark talking German to Bella. Apparently she needs to brush up on it when they move there. There was an exchange with Rickmeister, but Bella didn't understand Rick.....different part of Germany.
At dinner Halo and I conversed in Polish and then Halo and Charlie were deep in discussion in Nerdish. Klompy talked to himself....double Dutch, whilst Rossko led the rest of the group in Jibberish.
We have the common love of K ish.

It looks like a good time was had by all, as I sit here from afar taking it all in and getting a tug on the old heart strings for the land o' my birth. It looks like it got a tad chilly though. At least here in usually grey and rainy Seattle it hit 30 (86f) yesterday so lately I'm reminded of good OZ weather. Cheers to all. See ya's in Spring.

When's the next group ride?

The "top pub" in Narrandera was a proper pub. At one point during the evening Rossko asked me if he could get me a drink. I had been drinking low alcohol beer and then Carlton draught beer, neither of which tasted very good. I don't drink a lot of beer these days and consequently tend to enjoy some less mainstream beers such as Coopers or James Squire's etc. I decided to ask Rossko if he would get me a glass of red wine.

" Sure mate, " he smirked, and went off towards the bar. It was Saturday night and the place was reasonably full, with people playing pool and listening to music from the jukebox etc. Real music...Acker Dacker and Barnsie and not some girly dance music. There appeared in the humm and throng a lull just long enough to hear the barmaid shriek.....:

" Red worrrrn?!?!?!? Well......I suppose I could asssssk. Don't think we got any though...." She looked at Rossko with the kind of expression which said just what she thought of people from the big smoke. The lull continued for long after what can be considered momentary and the pool playing beer swilling younger fellers began to stare openly at Rossko.

" It's for HIM. " he screamed, twice, pointing at me, then turned away to the barmaid again.

" Schooner of Carlton then mate. " I squeaked and Rossko told the barmaid, gratefully.

"Cheers".

Geez Charlie, 5 days, I somehow think you would have doubled that over here with all the roadworks on the motorways, travelling between D and E which is down my way would have taken a day.
What was your fuel consumption like?

oh !...pretty average ungass

i guess about 330 k to the tank

when i got home still had more than quater tank from 3 fills for the day and 973klm (or something like that) distance travelled

dont think i ever put more than 16 liters in at one time

so i guess $75.00 per 1000 kilometers round about

know what you mean by cluttered traffic and road works mate ....they are a regular pain

on long trips i try to do my runs after or before normal working hours ...for just that reason (and its cooler ...mostly ) ... besides no nutters drive with the big 34 + wheeled trucks at night .....just the mildly weird ones like me ...grin

i wouldnt be far off by saying i saw perhaps over 300 + big wheels on the monday night

wow. Great pics. It's lovely to see all those K's out and about. Such a shame I couldn't make it - I was enduring post cyclonic conditions up in Cairns instead.

So when and where is the next get together?

We shall be going to the Far Cairn rally as part of the 30th birthday celebrations. There may be a meet in Bathurst on the Friday night before but not sure of that yet.

Finaly got the time to post some stuff as going back to work killed all my enthusiasim.

It was a good weekend and always great to meet people.

So on our way down we made our first stop at Nics parents at Karara then onto Leslie Dam whre we met up with Charlie.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Leslie10
Her we had some visitors that Bella would have made short work of. They were curious lil critters.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Imag0510

While we sat and enjoyed our Pasta and Bundy Rums we watched the sunset over Leslie dam.
Later that night Charlie arrived and we set out for Sydney.

I cant thank Rossko and family enough for the warm Hospitality shown to us.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dscf1410

Here is some short videos of on the Snowies and leaving kanakoban and Rossko waving..Happy with the Gopro.

Kanakoban Early Morning

Rossko Waving..

And lets not forget the oddly all to familliar sight of HALO!!
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Dscf1411
Nicole and I left Narrandera after Breakfast and made our way to Dubbo.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Imag0511
We spent the next week doing the couples touristy thing. I have to give Nicole a big thumbs up May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 112350
for being such a good pillion. I can hardly notice her back there
(unless she goes to sleep..then her helmet leans against my back) and
does not fight the bike conering. She just has got to the stage where
she lets her body just follow the bike.
The real reason I suspect Nicole came along was to just Feed a Samartran Tiger at Dubbo Western Plains Zoo. I was sceptical about this idea untill I had a tiger looking me in the eye and not liking me!!
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Tiger_10
Nicole measures herself up against a baby Giraffe.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Nic_an10

We also went to Dinner with Stan and his wife. Lovely lady. I also had to make running repairs to one of the hangars for my towbar. The weld had broken on the lug that bolts the z frame to the bike. Thanks Stan!!.

Nicole had never seen a real cave before so we went out to Wellington and took the tourist tour. Well worth it after there has been some rain.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 20130510
From here we made our way home through Goondiwindi were we stopped and had a rest while we waited for the sun to set.
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Waitin10
Sunset on the Warwick Goondi road is bad going either east or west as the sun hits your mirrors square on!!!
May 2013 what we doing? - Page 7 Reflec10
Our old Bike Ophelia performed marvelously as always. I only ran out of fuel twice mainly because I was more interested in the scenery than watching how far we had travelled. 310 km to the tank roughly with two up and a trailer with our camping gear.
Now to work lots of hours for the september meet. Sorta used all my leave up Very Happy.

Seems like a great time was had by all over the May weekend. Just been able to read all the reports of the weekend and sorry I missed it. As fate would have it I'm going through Narrandera next week on my way to Sydney - not on the bike though. Hopefully I can catch up with you all on one of these some time in the future.

I thought it would be appropriate to resurrect this post as a tribute to RossKKo. It sums up the character of the bloke. If you look over all the pages you will see how his wit and banter really worked.
