With the weekend ride plan out the window, JP and I spent a little time on Google Maps last night trying to work out a new plan for today.  Initially we were to head to Tuncurry from Walcha to meet the HOG chapter for lunch, but we were only 100k's or so from there and it didn't give us much to do for the next 6 hours.  There didn't seem

May is a wet month here around here, it's risky organising bigger rides but after seeing a brochure about riding the Thunderbolts way between Gloucester and Walcha NSW I decided I was going to do it on the first weekend I had free. I was going good weather or bad. This weekend was the one (Mother's Day and my son's birthday aside) and a workmate

A beautiful morning and an impending new members ride for the local HOG chapter got me out early to pick up the Road King, fill it with fuel  (14.69l @ $20.29) and set my son some homework goals to complete in order for him to join in.

On getting the bike back home I noticed that it's been quite a while since it was washed and it was

Rain was forecast today and there were a few clouds about, but after spending the day indoors yesterday the commitment level was high for a ride. The family was also keen to go somewhere nice for lunch so we decided to head to a little town called Dungog, across to the Bucketts Way and then to Gloucester.  The lunch location was flexible.

We

Today was the HOG ride to Toukley.  After a big day yesterday doing boring stuff I was keen for a ride and after quick SMS to Roy we decided to meet up and head for the ride's gathering place at Belmont.  My son on the back of course!

A quick fuel up (13.29l @ $17.40) and waiting for the start time saw about 13 Harley's ready to

The general plan for the day was for me to head north with my son and the HOG Chapter for a ride, turn around and meet my wife and other kids at Tea Gardens for lunch on the way back.  My wife had planned to leave an hour or so after me and the quick but late departure put a spanner into the works about what the new plans were.

I headed

It's been a few months since I joined the local chapter of the Harley Owners Group and other than the ride to Denman a while back weather and other commitments have kept me from riding with them again. I unexpectedly found some free time today, looked at Hogswill and found that it was the day for March's New Member Ride.

I organised my son

It's Saturday, and the weather looks OK but before I go for a ride I need to wash off the grime that settled on the Road King riding home from Sydney in the wet on Monday afternoon.  My daughter was keen to help in order to secure a seat on the ride for her second official outing.  An hour and a half later the Harley-Davidson was sparkling....

There

Oran Park is on tomorrow, hopefully it won't get rained out this time.  Today, however, was the trip down.  My son came along and we left around 3pm for the 200k trip to Narellen for the overnight stay. A quick fuel stop 10.31l @ $14.94. Great riding weather, we headed down the freeway and took the old Pacific Highway (of course)
