 :dred11 BIKERJIMBOB                   :blk13 RGardner                      :dred11 STranger and me :grin
After going over Stranger, packing, checking it all again all the weeks of planning was going into ACTION,  :runyay
Thursday morning up and left home 4.45  As planned I met our NZ member  Rob  
and BIKERJIMBOB Jim at Windsor 6am,with a full tank,,  there was a bit of fog so after a quick welcome to OzSTocrallya  for Rob and hi to Jim again, I told them our planned ride. Putty Rd > Muswellbrook >Scone for COFFEE, Uralla 452ks,fuel and lunch then easy ride to Toowoomba via Tenterfield 410k's arriving  6> .630pm an easy ride,,  :grin
The Putty is 1 of my favorite roads but with patchy fog and loose gravel on the Singleton end "TwiSTy's" after a 'spraypatch' trucks been though, I took it fairly easy, I'm not used to leading a ride.. and had to think abit more about 'Leading Responsibilty'  o:)
As we pulled into McCafe I spotted the firST OzSTOC jackets so far arriving at the pumps, saaz and   :fp his mate, so they joined Us for coffee

 after seeing saaz n  :think1 mate off headed off to the coaST , we then headed to Tamworth, a quik  :fp  oops I've lost them  a Uturn found them at the Golden Guitar, quik photo op,, then Uralla for fuel 452ks, and lunch, at the White Rose , another good feed :like ,
Next STop was STretch and Pee in Tenterfield followed by a STop at the border for pic and briefing on HWP in the area
after another 410k's
I like the New England Hwy and not ridden it all for a few years really enjoyed the ride on comfort,
thanks Abe for lending the Corbin  ++
  ,, I had led safely without incident or fines, without a map, left at Kmart R at lights WeST ST 2nd L Eiser ST and the Big4  5.45  after STating at Windsor I'd have us there by 6.30,,we arrived in Toowoomba for the 2015 OzSTOC National Rally  :hatwave   
to be continued....

Could be a very long saga, at this rate!!     :wink1

Good collection of pix.   Keep 'em coming.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
