    That is a nice run from Canberra! Is that a Triumph Cruisers organised event?

    That would be a nice event but it's the month before the RDU, I won't be able to go to both.

    Lame excuse! ;):p:D
    I think the gap is much more than that:
    5/8
    27/10 - 29/10

    12 weeks - nearly 3 months :thumbsup:

    What a schmozzle:(:eek::rolleyes::whitstling::whitstling:.

    Three Rockets turned up at the 'Dish' about 25km out of town after @Longrider , @HansO and I searched motels and c'van parks in Parkes for the 'Group'. We then headed out to the 'Dish' to find three locals, a Triumph America, a Suzuki Bandit and one other Rocket there expecting a decent show up. Nice blokes, beautiful bikes and good chat, had lunch, coffee and departed at 13.50 to finally see about 6 Rockets and a couple of others heading towards the Dish on the way out. No doubt a report will ensue from the organisers but unsure if they will add our two to the 'record' turn up count.;):D

    Great ride to Lucknow on Friday (despite 2-3C 35-37 F and wet fog, sleet and low cloud all day) and back Saturday (sunny, but a little chilly in the last hour before dark) and superb hospitality from @Longrider , Richard and his lovely wife Theresa and son Joss. The curry, scotch and bull**** were great in equal measure.

    Great roast pork and all the trimmings awaiting our arrival at my home in Canberra and @HansO safely on his way home to Batemans Bay this morning.

    There are reports HansO caked up twice on Saturday. I have never seen a person order cake for starters before pasta at lunch;):p. Followed by hot muffin and cream for dessert after a great roast dinner.
    I think he may be considering mounting a challenge to my own rotundity;):p:eek:

    P.S. I would highly recommend my microwave 'crackling' finishing techniques but I have yet to write up my treatise on the topic.

    820 km (500 mile) for me and quite a bit more for Hans once he gets home.
