Post by: Jdbiker on April 06, 2017, 10:06:05 AM
All low level speeding speeding fines which had exceeded 12 demerit points in a 3 year period. I had elected to extend the demerit point period but if I incurred any further demerits license would be suspended. Recently got pinged on ring road doing 80 in 40 km work zone. I have sought a review as signage was quite confusing. I do lot of driving in my line of work averaging 300kms a day and of late am finding it impossible to avoid these low level speeding fines. Well I hoping for positive outcome from the review, meantime no driving or riding for me  :'( and yes walking will surely do me good :crackup

There ya go Kev...even goood for blokes with dodgey knees :wink1. Now if there is ever an RTE within 50km of where I am, I'll ride it there...any further and I would need to make it an over nighter ;-*

Actually, it does get ridden once a month on 30km round trip with a Mate on his mighty 250 Greeves twin road bike...cant see us for smoke! So bring on the country wide fracking to keep us on the road I say.

Hi all,
Seems like we will make it to Port Fairy after all. After some prompting from Sir Richard of Sunbury, I spoke to the missus and she has most kindly agreed to drive us there :thumbs
See y'all there :hatwave

Hi all :hatwave
Just a suggestion for those of us who are making this an overnigther whether a BBQ for the evening meal would be an option? As we will be traveling by car and have fridge, could procure and transport necessary cuts of meat and other requirements for BBQ. Would need volunteer to do the actual barbecuing 🤓

Cheers.

Hi de hi intrepid motorcyclists, have we our warm and weather proof riding gear all laid out n ready to hit the open roads of bleakness? You know, we may need to turn the heated sets up to level 2 on Saturday too.  :eek And cannot wait to see Strop in his full wets n helmet burning cow parts on a BBQ on Saturday nite...should be most entertaining.

Hey, and Jonathon, its days like this not having a bike licence, but having a chaffeur, cannot be such a bad thing.   :thumbsup

Howdy all,

I'd been planning to come along, but must have forgotten to pipe up! Initially we were both planning to come and make a weekend away of it, but Em had to head back to NZ on family business last week. I'll still hope to get there, won't be able to stay for the cook-up though, will need to get home to make an airport run in the evening!
