After getting washed out for our Wiseman's Ferry ride, I was really looking forward to swinging a leg over for this mystery ride!  It was a nice warm day, plenty of sunshine so I knew we were good to go.  Obviously being a mystery ride no one knew where we were going but Chewy and I planned to an easy loop around Mt Sugarloaf and the

Man it was good to throw a leg over the hog again.  It had been about 6 weeks since my last ride so the loins were itching to get out!  Now I'm certainly not making any excuses but after working on the house for a number of weeks and the amount of bloody rain we've had, I hadn't really made time to get out.

It had been a really long week and I was really looking forward to this overnight ride.  We had plenty of sun forecast for the weekend, which only added further to the excitement.  I don't know if it's just me, but if I haven't been for a ride in a few weeks, I start to get a little unsettled and a night away was just what

The goal of this ride was simple...  Ride an IBA SS1600K on a small single cylinder bike to claim the coveted IBA title of "Not Right Rider".

 

The ride was originally organised by Wom and he thought it would also be great to open the ride up to the FarRiders forum and see if we had any takers.  OX-34

Pulling in to Fraser's I had the feeling this was going to be a great day.  The sun was shining, with only a slightly ominous front off the southern skyline.

 

By 12:00pm we had approximately 30 bikes pulled up, so it was shaping up to be a decent number for the ride.  As always, the BBQ was cranking along

After much convincing, my lovely Wife signed up as a pillion for her first Iron Butt Association approved ride — the SS1600k.  Essentially, this ride consists of 1600 kilometres in under 24hrs, with signed witnesses at

It was one of those days when I woke up and just felt like going for ride!

 

After a quick discussion with Wifey, we had decided on heading up to Tea Gardens for gelato.  The other alternative was Gloucester for coffee, although given it was a 30 degree day on the coast, we thought it wise not to head inland.

Today was WomBattle and my first official ride as HOG Road Captains.  Wom was up the front and I was chasing up the tail making sure we didn't lose anyone.  The plan was to meet up at Beresfield BP at 10:00am for a 10:30am start, then head to Nabiac via Gloucester.

I pulled up at the Beresfield BP at 10:00am a little

Today was the wedding of a close friend of my fathers daughter, which we were lucky enough to be escorting the fine young groom and his entourage on the back of our harley's.

The wedding was taking place at the Sebel Kirkton Hunter Valley at 2pm and we were all under strict instruction to be prompt and deliver the groom's

Before I get too far into this, a little background couldn't hurt.  I've been a member of our local HOG chapter since '09 and over that time I have only ever been involved at a social level — attending rallies, events and whatnot.  More recently, there has been a need for some members to put their hands up for the role
