Sydney Ride - Tues Dec 15th

Hey guys n gals, I have taken Tuesday 15th December off to go for a ride, destination not in concrete yet, but the berowra-Wollombi-putty loop is always a good run.
I haven spoken to a few today, looks like a few of us going, be good to get some of the Aust Rally guys together to get a ride in before the rally.
Anyway, lunch and a beer somewhere 200km from Sydney is the plan.

Cheers
Kiwimat

Re: Sydney Ride - Tues Dec 15th

Hey Guys, we are going to do the Putty Rd Loop from Berowra to Wisemans Ferry. Map is Below
Meeting place is the 7/11 (Mobil) at Berowra at 7:30am.
Basic plan is to ride from Berowra to Kulnura and have some breakfast/coffee at Jerrys cafe, food, coffee and service is great. Meet up with Grey Spikes there. Also a chance to have a chat and check out the bikes. Mark says the carpark at Jerry's has been sealed so that will be nice to see.
From Kulnura we ride to Bulga via Wollombi, Photo opportunity at Wollombi Pub around 10am, i think they have Coopers Pale Ale on tap, and in New Zealand its Midday, so i will have a beer........then onto and fuel up at Bulga.
We then head into the Putty Rd and this time we will go to Colo Hts for a quick stop and fuel up if needed, then cut down to Sackville Ferry, up to Maroota and onto Wisemans Ferry for a mid afternoon stop at the Wisemans Ferry Pub. From there Grey Spikes and Gosford/Newcastle riders can head back through Spencer/Mangrove Mountain and the rest of us can find our way home from there.

Anyway, be at 7/11 (mobil) petrol station at 7:30am on Tuesday 15th December.
Im going, rain, hail or shine. Anyone who chickens out because of weather, thats ok........ we will post up pictures of the dry roads 200km from sydney for you......
Message me if your not sure.
Ring me in the morning if your running late, i have my phone connected to my helmet so anytime is ok.
Looking forward to this ride guys, see ya there!

cheers
KiwiMat

Nice to ride with the 'inimitable' Smogs (K13@Man), KiwiMat and Rocks0769 (Ray) again today.

Also great to meet Stansie (Adam), Heapy (Grahame) and Dobbo (George) and eat all their dust too!

Thanks for organising us (KWM) and the superb weather, to boot!

Sorry Mark. Too busy being a slave. Unfortunately not the type of slave that gets led around on a leash.

Max Speed from Bulga to Colo Hts was only 129.5km/h!
Very well behaved I thought.

Hey guys, thanks for coming along, the weather was perfect, the roads were clean and empty, food was great and of course the good company along the way.
I will start a "Ride Tale" thread tonight when I get home and pinch all these pictures across.

Thanks again lads, awesome ride!

Cheers

What a superb day.
Finally, I've caught up with some excellent riders who are of like mind with regard to riding style and attitude (and two of them are a lot gamer than me)! And, all excellent blokes to boot.
The 2016 Rally will be an event not to be missed!
A thousand thanks to Mat for arranging the ride and the creating the wonderful camaraderie.

Not does Mat seem to be a great guy, but he's done a wonderful job of 'colonizing' Australia for I-BMW.

Thanks Bruce, this great forum makes these get together rides and friendships possible, and I just love planning a ride, even if it's just for a day.

Re: Sydney Ride - Tues Dec 15th

Great video Mark!!!
I see you caught "last to leave Smog" on video, casually sliding his gloves on as the last victim/person leaves.
Love the commentary as well, I have made a start on my video, I have to say that due to my GoPro being mounted closer to the road than yours, it can give the impression or illusion of possible excessive speeds, and the engine noise close to my camera also gives and unrealistic interpretation of my possible "caning the fck out of my bike" riding style.
Will work on mine tonight.

Cheers
