At last, after four long years, We've booked airline tix from Seattle to Vancouver BC to Brissy. We depart 25 September, arriving early Tuesday the 27th @ BNE. The Mighty red K100RS & its stablemate the '77 R75/7(R100) will be dragged out into SE Queensland sunlight from their storage shed for the first time since early November 2018. I'll be sure to pack a spare fuel pump & the usual hard bits that go gooey, despite treated fuel. 

Our plans are to spend a week or more south of Brissy in the Beenleigh area, as well as the Sunshine Coast visiting friends. Then it's off to Victoria to see mum, cousins & old mates. 

I'm hoping to stop in to at least see RickG & Charlie on my way south, but it'd be great to catch up with other forum members along the way. The loverly Pamela will accompany me. Closing in on ten years she's put up with me, the past two and a half pandemic years have us needing to get away. We made a long weekend trip over the border to Canada a coupla weeks ago but haven't done much travelling interstate since early 2020, save a quick trip to Albuquerque last December. Bike rides have been limited to weekend trips & commuting to work after a really wet & cold Spring this year.  The heat is finally here with today's temp reaching a wonderful 31, tomorrow 36, 35, 34, 28 dropping to 25 by Sunday.

This coming week I'm on holidays so it's a week on the red GT camping and touring the Pacific North West: Washington, Idaho, Montana & Oregon.

Best to all.
Daz

You're most welcome at Broadford on the way down. Or maybe catch up at a pub in Melbourne somewhere, I feel there would be a few more meeting together that way.

Sometimes I've thought of making a thread to meet at a Melbourne pub maybe once a year. Looking at the Queensland krew meets makes me think that.

Cheers.

Thanks, guys. We don't know how much touring time we'll have 'on bike' but either way, will be travelling to Barnawartha & Clunes Vic. Most likely route is inland through Stanthorpe and Glen Innes to Victoria. Hoping to catch up with as many as possible. 

One priority, during the first days back, is emptying that Beenleigh storage shed which went up from its initial cost over 25% to $175 per month during the p'demic. I had to have it so took the risk, but it's been a healthy bite of my budget to support it the last four years, plus all the years I was away prior. 

The K bits in totes are gunna get scattered to anyone who needs them, and the venerable old Airhead sent back to the States for a proper return to rideability.

Daz there is a Kluster of K Kronies on the northern and southern sides of Bris. If you are not too pushed for time a meet up may be possible.
Regards Martin.

Looking forward to hearing familiar accents, the squawking noise of the masses of mad birds, and smelling the scent of eucalypt wafting through the air. Sometimes it can be so sterile in the relative wilds of North America, long surrounded by pirates with their rhotic tendencies.
