Hey Mat,
Great ride, good to meet you guys, and yes I had some fun in the mud. A dirty bike means you've gone places :-)

Looking forward to the next ride.

Cheers
Pearsy

Re: Sydney ride, Sunday 21st June

Here's the last video from me from our iBMW Sunday 21 June ride... south of the Grey Gum Cafe down the mountain (?) into Colo or thereabouts...

Re: Sydney ride, Sunday 21st June

Top video Mark, bike sounds awesome. And the riding into grey gums cafe with all the bikes really looked great. I'm going to have to lift my game with these videos!
Better get that bike checked too, engine seemed to be revving a bit hard in some spots.....

Cheers

Re: Sydney ride, Sunday 21st June

Really nice video Mark. I see that Kiwimat has shortened his name to KMW. So I guess from now on we call him KWIM. Very nice. I like.
