Even though it was an unusual day for me, it was great to catch up with everybody again.Food was really good.Just remember it's 80 k`s going into Daylesford. Nuff said. Nice ride though, and other than the wind, all good. :wht11

Yes Richard, I agree with the enforcing speed bit, and I always do my best to comply, but he must of thought that 96 was unenforceable, go figure.  o:)  :wht11

I didnt have quite as 'good' a time as Nigel but an errant magpie took out the right hand mirror cover and indicator on the way to Hepburn. Poor Ruby. Took it off as clean as a whistle. After stopping and running back part way it was run over by a car so I left it in a thousand pieces on the Calder Freeway. Saved me trying to run between the cars I guess. Slow and careful trip for the rest of the day.
So apart from the incident and the wind it was a good ride. Good to catch up with the gang.

Maggie V Mirror is a bit better than that wich happened to one of our Ulysses guys. He took a maggie in the shoulder, he rode to Joondalup emergency to have the beay removed. Raised eyebrows that did, and then he rode home.

G'day guys,

It was great to get there in time to actually sit down and have a chat this time!!  Good to put some faces to some names too. It was good to meet Neil & Val, I had a great chat with Val about touring the Island of the Long White Cloud, you've got me really excited about our trip now!  When I got home and told Em I'd been chatting with a Kiwi, she regretted not coming along (a bit homesick at the moment I think...).

Awesome to get that strange noise diagnosed too, thanks Greencan!

Back in 1979 I took a magpie to the face wearing an open face helmet, just south of Tamworth, heading to Qld. I had two teeth broken off, an hour later my whole face was black, I was Still finding feathers,blood and guts in the helmet 6 months later,.. needless to say this was the laST time I wore an open face,,,  OUCH!!!

 I was wearing a full face when I encountered a suicidal Murray Magpie full in the face while travelling late one afternoon between Waurn Ponds and Winchelsea about 8 years ago... it split the visor top to bottom.
Unpleasant ride home.
