Looking out my bedroom window to the East at 7am. The sun is poking its smiley face through some puffy white clouds and it feels very warm compared to last week. My thermometer says 13 and rising.

On arrival I saw the Dookie burger on the menu for 21 bucks. I thought that was a bit steep but then I saw one being served up and decided there and then, that was for me!
By the time they took our order, Marcus had seized upon the last burger. I voiced my disappointment and he graciously offered me his burger while he opted for the chicken parma. Although the parma was ok, I think Marcus was regretting his generosity when he saw what I was about to hoe into.

Bottom right shows nothing left but the beer battered wedges. You can also see Terry's steak which was left begging after he reached his fill on lamb chops, bacon and eggs. I should have got a doggie bag. The serving sizes were far more than the average Joe can eat. Young Johnny did rather well to polish off his parma and chips along with a fruit drink and a choc wedge. All up, very good value. Thumbs up from me.

Sorry Marcus was not lusting after you, I was just looking at the incredibly large meals and that someone could actually eat them.
Thanks all for a good day. Cheers Debbie (The Lady in the back)

Ok, looks like this thread will do for pics then.

With Williamson overseas enjoying a well earned 8 week holiday, John and Johnny joined the ST owners for the Dookie RTE. We had previously met most of you at the Mansfield RTE where I unceremoniously tipped my bike over in the car park and caused my arm to turn blue (along with with the air!) Well the arm has healed but now my stomach is stretched and swollen after today's effort!


Spot the odd ones out. Give ya a clue. Honda Honda Honda Honda........



Johnny amused the ST riders with his newly acquired fidget spinner.
