How many are going to this rally? Be good to see a few GRiSOs there. I will be there from Thursday afternoon for some well earned RnR before the hordes arrive...

Pete, you coming up this year?

Nah, to be honest I'm a bit over the whole rally scene. For a good few years I went up and often spent time working on people's' bikes and fixin' shit like blown off fuel lines and doing proper TB balances. I also used to donate stuff like service kits for the raffle. Problem was it never got me any thanks and certainly no business!

One day one of the blokes who I'd basically set up his GRiSO properly at the rally for because the dealership he'd bought it from had made a complete pig's breakfast of it phoned me up. He'd had a spill and had a couple of minor issues with leaks and electricals. I was able to diagnose the problems and got the bike running over the phone after about half an hour so I asked him if he needed me to get him a rocker cover 'cos he'd mullahed his up in the get off. He simply said, "Oh no, I wouldn't buy it from you, you're too expensive I can get one $40 cheaper from Rick and Gordon at MG Cycles."

It was about then the 'Go and fuck spiders' clause was invoked!

Fair 'nuff Pete, understand. Just sayin...

I do know you did a fair bit of work at that rally in recent years - actually saw it in person.

MarkIII, see you there and maybe tomorrow night as well.

I am a rather tragic rally attender at the moment - I like to go early and come back late - some breathing space for the head

Depending on work I'm planning to head of from Brisbane on Friday morning. Staying somewhere overnight, getting to the rally on Saturday some time, depending on my route. First descent run on the new pride and joy.

I did take some pics from afar - up close and personal, my pics tend to be an exercise in being unable to hold the camera still - ie blurry as all get out!

Stand by...

Wish I had more pictures, especially when the rabble arrived. But I know it's safer if I leave my camera out of reach when there's alcohol involved - Friday night being particularly bad!
silent

perhaps Mark or Ian have some of note...

There was quite a few loop framed Guzzis that came out of the woodwork, but only one other 1200 Sport (Paul the Garbo, his was red). Lot's of GRiSOs though.

I refer to it as the RUGGED FRIDGE rally. These photos are from a few years ago, I was on my way to pick up Double D's Le Mans which only got half way there.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]" />

Probably a dozen or so. Great to catch up again Tony, and nice to meet you Mark. Some pics to follow. Had a great weekend, nearly 2000kms on some of the country's best roads, Mt Lindsay Hwy, Grafton Armidale Road, the Oxley, Thunderbolts Way, the Gwydir Hwy and Waterfall Way. How much better can it get. I'm really starting to feel comfortable on the black devil after 15 years on a MkIII. Now all I need to do now I have the Termignoni is sort the mapping out. The new screen arrived on the weekend, just have to get it repainted and modify the mounting brackets.
