October's a busy month!

Well there seems to be something happening every week-end in October so it could end up being a busy one. One thing I know for sure - I'm not riding on the Great Ocean Road on a Sunday ever again! I went there last week-end & it was crazy. There were cops pulling bikes over, tourists in cars going at 4o km/hr & pulling up without even indicating and queues of traffic that reminded me of sunny England! It used to be an awesome road even at 80km/hr but now it's a pain in the arse - literally! The views still fantastic though!

Details on the draft plan for Tasmania 07 have been circulated by e-mail and handed out at the meeting. If you haven't got details and want them send me an e-mail & I get them to you. At the moment it's still on the drawing board but you'll need to be quick as I've made a few enquiries with e-mails and the accommodation is filling fast!

It's the Monthly Ride Day on Sunday 8th October (this Sunday). A few of us won't be able to make it but from the meeting last Thursday it sounded like a ride to the Motorcycle Expo was a good idea. Meet at the usual time of 9am for a 9:30 start.

The Southern Classic is on again at Broadford on 14 & 15 October.

A few of us are planning to go for the Sunday racing that starts at 9am. It's $15 per adult and if you want to see some great action on those old machines it's brilliant value for money. Check out the Historic Motorcycle Racing Association website for details. Plan is to leave Geelong Wharfshed at 7:30am on Sunday 15th Oct.

The Pink Ribbon Ride is on again and if you haven't already registered online then you have until Sunday October 8th 2006. Go to the Pink Ribbon Web Site. The ride is on Sunday 22nd October leaving from Bunnings Warehouse - 636 Burwood Highway, Vermont South and riding to the Maroondah Dam for lunch and entertainment. For those taking part, meet at the Wharfshed at 7:30am for the ride to Melbourne.
Last year we had a great day & even had a chat with Tara Moss - wonder what she thinks of her new Triumph Scambler.
