PostSubject: Black Dog Ride Day - Tassie 2015   Wed Mar 25, 2015 5:16 am

Hi all,

Last weekend I took part in the Tasmanian chapter of the 1 Dayer Black Dog Ride. It is the only one in Tassie so people travelled from all over the Island to participate.

The following is a summary of what it is all about (from their website)

"Black Dog Ride began in 2009 as one man's ride to raise awareness of depression, developing into national suicide prevention charity involving thousands of Australian motorcycle riders who've raised over $1,700,000 for mental health services, fostering mental health awareness around the country."

For more info go to - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

There is even a ride planned for the USA this year.

The ride started in Campbell Town (about 70km south of Launceston, where I live) and travelled along the Lake Leake Hwy to the East Coast and then up the Tasman Hwy to finish in Bicheno.

A really good turn out - I had a walk around when I first got there and no Guzzis (let alone Grisos) but as I was pulling out I saw a Breva 750 and I spied a 1200 Sport in Bicheno (not partaking in the ride)

(sorry no Pics from Bicheno as it started pouring just as I got in and it was mad rush to get my wet weather gear on):

Thanks fellas.

I was meant to go on a memorial ride on the Saturday that was organized by the local 'God Squad' chapter to commemorate riders that had lost their lives doing what we all love in the last 12 months.

Unfortunately I missed the start and got the finishing point completely wrong - DOH!!

I had promised a friend that I would call in and see him play his first game for a new team in a local Aussie Rules football match. He had a nasty knee injury and I didn't feel right just saying "catch you later"

Good selection of different bikes and looks like you've had no rain for months, although they've had a sprinkler on the playing field
