Latest News - 23rd Aug 05

The Geelong RAT website is now officially listed on the Triumph RAT website
. Go to the site, select the Web Links on the left navigation bar and then select RAT Packs Australia. There’s also a Geelong RAT photo album and if you do a search on Google for Geelong RAT a link to the Triumph RAT is displayed.

Remember the Monthly Meeting is this Thursday night (25th Aug 05) at the Wharfshed Café. A couple of trips are planned for later this year (Melbourne Cup week-end) and early next year (East Coast) so we need to start planning - now’s the time to throw your ideas into the hat.

Next Ride Day is Sunday 4th September 05.

Sunday 18th September
The Australian Motorcycle Expo is coming up soon and this year it’s being held in the Melbourne Exhibition Centre (Jeff’s shed). Meet at the Wharfshed Café 9:00 am Sunday for a 9:30 am start.
“All new location, all new set up, more exhibitors, bigger displays, all new activities and a full size Supercross Stadium under one roof, its going to be huge!”
For more details see the official Motorcycle Expo Website

Melbourne Cup Week-end
The Melbourne Cup week-end is a 4 day trip to Everton which I am told is near Bright. The plan is to depart on the Saturday and return on Tuesday. That means getting the Monday off work for those working in Melbourne and maybe the Monday and Tuesday for those that don’t get the Melbourne Cup public holiday. Accommodation and route is to be confirmed.

East Coast 2006
Next years trip is taking place around the end of Feb 06 and start of March 06. The plan is to explore the East Coast and Snowy Mountains. Dates are yet to be confirmed but it is likely to be discussed at the Monthly Meeting this week as it’s gonna come around quickly.

Well that’s it for now. We’re off to Tassie on Saturday for 5 days – who knows; maybe we’ll be the advance party for the next big trip down to that beautiful, motorcycle friendly island in 06/07!
