A happy group of us left the BP at Beresfield right on time today for an easy 420k stroll down the freeway to Canberra for the NSW HOG Chapter Challenge which is to start tomorrow.  We had all day to get there so there was no hurry, it was a sit back and relax atmosphere with time to enjoy the scenery and dodge the lunatics in tin boxes.

An early start saw a group of 4 of the local HOG® Chapter discussing the route we were going to take to cross as many Hawkesbury River Ferries as the inclement looking weather would allow today.  We decided to head towards Wiseman's Ferry first with a quick stop at the General Store at Spencer for coffee on the way.

One of my mates, Dave, is just off his P's and decided to trade in his Honda 400 for a very nice 4 y.o. low k's BMW K1200.  He reckon's he's not yet ready for a Harley Davidson and I understand his logic completely.  He likes to go fast, he's developing his skills and he's looking very forward to taking his new "rocket" down

I had a few things to do this morning including meeting up with some of the local HOG® Chapter to discuss an upcoming event.  I drove to the meeting because I ran short of time to grab my Harley Davidson® Road King® from its air conditioned home at my office and when I joined the others I was quite jealous of those

I was talking to a mate a while back and actually said that I'm not the kind of Harley Davidson owner that fired it up to go to the vineyards for lunch, preferring a longer ride.  Circumstances today made me eat my words.  Certainly not the first time, and definitely not the last but I did have good intentions.

A different mate,

A mate had decided he wanted to take a trip to Sydney to have a quick look at Trivetts Harley Davidson who had advertised a BBQ, not that food was the sole reason. After doing 6000k's plus over the last few weeks riding to Mt Isa, Townsville and back home I was suprised that I was itching to get back on the bike and I'd not been to Trivetts

After the rain yesterday I was pleased to see that the sky was clearing when I woke up in Lismore this morning.  A quick check of the wet clothes and boots I'd been drying under the air conditioner all night revealed reasonable success and the breakfast of scrambled eggs and lots of coffee delivered to the room was tasty.  With less than

For my Harley Davidsion Road King and I, leaving Maryborough QLD was an imperative.  I didn't take the time to have breakfast, that was going to happen at the first fuel stop.  The roads were wet, the sky threatening but at that point despite the bleak forecast for the last couple of days, no rain.  Maybe I was going to be lucky the

I left Mackay a little later than I expected this morning. I was up early but it took me a while to get going.  Perhaps something to do with the mini bar's demise but maybe I just didn't feel like rushing.  In any case I took some time to enjoy a very decent buffet breakfast at the bistro in the apartment complex and was very happy when

After a relaxing breakfast and morning at the Casino at Townsville that included watching some of the Running Festival we were suppose to be in my wife and I said our goodbyes with her getting ready to head out to the airport to fly home and me packing my Harley Davidson Road King ready for an afternoon ride to Mackay, my first stop on my ride
