After a light breakfast at the Park Hotel, Bathurst it was time to line the bikes up outside to take a formal group photo, a copy of which was to be provided to our host.  I'm sure a few of the locals raised their brows at the site of one of our number squatting in the bushes on a nearby roundabout.  It wasn't immediately obvious that

An early morning rise in Wee Waa was required, I needed to be home in the early afternoon for a social engagement.  Also planning to leave early was another member of the local HOG Chapter who had also taken his son on the trip.  The young men with us were similar in age, and it turns out after the conversation the previous night,

My first HOG weekend ride with just the local chapter saw us meet at 8am sharp at a designated location.  Dust was on everyone's mind and everywhere else, the wind was lifting but there was no talk of going home. 

So with the sky a dusty red hue off we went, 10 bikes, 16 people (I think.. must learn to count) with the first

Awake at 6am and really looking forward to motoring up the Snowy Mountains Highway this morning.  The night was mild and the forecast good enough to not be concerned about black ice.  Thinking about breakfast was too hard, I couldn't face another sausage sanga and I'd decided the night before to perhaps look for a cafe in Tumut for something

The organisers of the TMCC Charity Ride to Tumut and the locals had organised a bus to make a number of trips from town to the Racecourse where the Lions Club were putting on a feed, a band and some drinks. Bike Biz were also there with a number of donated items that were up for raffle including a very sexy Shark Evo helmet, some jackets and other

A 4.30am rise in order to get to Warnervale for a 6am meeting with some localish fellow riders striking out for Tumut for a charity ride run by the Blue Liners TMCC.  This rally used to to run regularly in the late '90's and ceased in 2002 and was resurrected this year when the TMCC decided to take over the management of it.  Given I have

A special mention for one of the attendees of the Blue Liners Tumut Rally.  A 30+ year veteran, now Macadamia Farmer (no names in the blog) approached me in Goulburn after a short chat in Mittagong and said (approx) "My mind must have been a bit fuzzy back there... 2009 Road King.. are you the guy who writes that blog?"

Good weather again saw about 20 Harleys head to Raymond Terrace via Williamtown, ride along the Williams River, Italia Rd, crossing the Highway to Medowie Road and stopping

Today saw a miscommunication causing my son and I to turn up seriously late for a local HOG chapter members only ride.  A quick glance around the deserted meeting venue gave us three choices

  • go home
  • go for a ride somewhere
  • go on the HOG ride anyway and see what happens
