Sydney Ride Report - 31st August 2016

Hey guys, I have taken Wednesday 31st August off and I'm going for a ride.
Anyone else keen to come along is welcome, same old run from Berowra to Wisemans Ferry via Kulnura, Wollombi, Broke, Bulga, Putty Rd, Sackville Ferry, Maroota, Wisemans Ferry.
That's 6 weeks notice, so no excuses girls!

Cheers
Kiwimat

Hey James, the weather forecast is supposed to be good, its a long way to come for a day ride unless your already in Sydney. The Tempo varies depending on who comes, but fair to say we all ride pretty well. That aside it is good to meet a few people too. Are you coming on the 2017 Rally?

cheers

Re: Sydney Ride - 31st August 2016

So keen to come in March. I have not made any bookings yet. Work may change all that because I work for myself.
I have been reading the 2016 trip reports and think the ride will be great. I wonder if the pleezmen have been reading the forum and want to meet us all?

I would need to buy some whisky from Costco before I join in though, based on what happened this year.

Hey James, tell your boss your coming on the rally or your going to quit your job! The Piglets were here and there on the last ride, im sure they wanted to meet us, but with helmet comms and phones/nav's on board with quite a few of us, we had a pretty good idea where they were waiting.

Unhappy Re: Sydney Ride - 31st August 2016

Sorry everyone...I will be unable to attend tomorrow's ride. I've no choice but to perform daddy duties tomorrow so cannot get out for a ride. Weather is looking ordinary, so maybe we can change the date and do another one

That's no good you can't make it bro, I'm still hopeful for decent weather. Unfortunately I already took a day of annual leave for tommorow, so I really can't change the date, but, as we discussed Paul, I could do a Saturday morning thing, Worthingtons are doing their ride and are putting on breakfast at 8:30, so we would turn up there for Breaky, and do I bit with them, or shoot off somewhere else.

Cheers
Mat

Yeah it's a goer, hoping it will be a nice day like today was. We will see. Make a judgement call on the rest of the day at Kulnura.
Tim (DNSDC)
George (Dobbo)
Mark (Greyspikes)
Mat (Kiwimat)
And maybe Patrique (not feeling positive about the weather)

Pictures of Tim's bike, please Mat. Pretty sure I looked at it when I first got the K12S itch.

Re: Sydney Ride - 31st August 2016

So the forecast for today was slight chance of rain, 0-1mm. Looked a bit cloudy but I was going anyway. Surprisingly warm morning for the last day of winter, it was 15degees C at 6:30am. Roads were dry.


I headed off and decided to go to berowra via the Berowra Ferry. Took this shot on the way down to the ferry along Bay rd at Berrilee


Took a few shots down at the Berowra Ferry. Did I mention how much I love my BMW K1300R and how good it looks!!




Not sure if the panoramic pic will come out, here goes.


View from the ferry down the river. There is a freshwater creek that joins the river down here that the local dropbears are known to drink from, last year a man was attacked and had his ear bitten off.





From the Berowra ferry I made my way up the hill to Berowra, and rode back to the 7-11 servo to see if anybody had decided to turn up, 7:38am, nobody there, so topped up fuel and off to Jerrys at Kulnura. This shot is on the way, coming down the Old Pacific Hwy to Brooklyn, you can see the river down in the distance. Roads still dry, no rain.


8:40 I pull into Jerrys cafe at Kulnura, nobody there, I have a chat with Jerry, practice a bit of my Vietnamese, and head back out to the carpark.


The lads rock up soon after, Tim (DNSDC) on the K1200S, Mark (Greyspikes) on the black K1300R and George (Dobbo) on the K1300S , and we have a yarn and order some food. Maybe a heartstarter first.




My usual Steak sandwich with the lot and a cuppa tea for breakfast


We set off to Wollombi, onto broke via Paynes Crossing rd, and over to Bulga for fuel and a few beverages. Roads still dry, no rain




Who owns that beautiful red bike!!

Re: Sydney Ride - 31st August 2016

From bulga we head up into the Putty Rd, the first part is the best, very twisty, road surface is excellent. Get about half way along the putty road to Colo heights and get a bit of light rain, road is soaked for a few 10-20km stretches. Continue onto Colo Hts and Dobbo fuels up and we wait for Mark and Tim, they arrive, and it start pissing down rain. Put on the rain jacket (dumb me didn't put rain pants on) and we head off, maybe 10km in the heavy rain, and then it backs off. Just have to mention how fckn great these bikes are in the wet!!!
Anyway, down to the Sackville ferry and onto Wisemans Ferry pub for lunch.


"Old mate" checking out the machines at the pub.




Food and beers


Yes Mogs, it turns out this bike was covered in CF, a lot was taken off before Tim got it.

Re: Sydney Ride - 31st August 2016

It was a great ride today thanks lads, and some great company and stories to go with it. Weather was a bit erratic towards the end, but we had a clear run all morning and the best bit of the putty rd. Hope you guys all got back safely and didn't get rained on again.

Cheers

Home safe and sound... no rain on the way home but was VERY black to the north of Newcastle as I was heading in from Doyalson... Thanks for a great day out KWM (Mat), Dobbo George) and DNSDC (Tim... nice to meet you!).

Thanks Mat, Mark and George! I had a blast today. It was great to ride with you all, swapping some stories and a few laughs.

Looking forward to the next ride!

Re: Sydney Ride Report - 31st August 2016

You lucky lucky bastards! Am jealous! While my poor bike sits on the back verandah hooked up to a battery tender. I can't even wheel her into the shed. Will have forgotten how to ride when the day finally arrives! Let alone keep up with you lot! Nice report dude! Keep em up for us housebound lame ducks!
