My favourite Sunday morning run , is up the Black Spur , across to Marysville for a coffee, over lake Mountain and back down the Reefton Spur , to Reefton Pub for lunch and a couple of beers then back home through Warburton .

Makes for a neat ride before all the Sunday perckerheads get out there , I find after luchtime a no no on the spur roads as too many idiots on bikes out by then, makes it more dangerous than worrying about oncoming cars.

cool, we just need to set a day.guys:cool:
maybe a sunday in the next month?
i'm thinking your run might be 4-5 hr return to metro area.
but i've found roads not so great in the morning up in that area due to frost etc?

The mornings the best time to ride and enjoy the experience , sure the roads are damp and foggy in places , but your in the mountains , and it is for me anyway one of the nicest rides you can have to clear your mind , enjoy and feel refreshed at the end of the day.

Its all about the vibe , for me anyway.

I agree with spooner, I don't enjoy the ride so much when there are a lot of guys trying to prove themselves to better than Casey, but frosty/slippery roads are great either, but an enjoyable (cautious) cruise can still be had.

no worries, assuming weather is fine shall we try Sat 19 th September in the morning, perhaps meet near city?
or maybe Sat 26th (if you're not into footy...)

generally maybe Saturday is a better day for (literally) fewer Sunday drivers...

Sounds good. I'd prefer not the Grand Final w'end personally.

My two brothers ride Buells (XB Lightning - naked streetfighter) would they also be welcome??? Not sure if they can make it, but thought I would clear it with you guys first before offering.

Cheers.

Have the proposed bikie laws come in yet?
If there is more than 5 of us going on the ride, aren't we then classed as a gang? :D

sundays are fine too - buells' loud enough so why not!
if we have a few on the day it will be a cool rumble from a distance...

sunday before grand final (20 Sept) or the week after grand final (4 October)?

the b-double's a back-up for the buells:)

great - we'll lock in Sunday 20th - ideas for meeting place?
i'm leaving from city - we can make several stops if needed.

There's a very slim possibility my mate with an old Duc and his brother with a Triumph might drop in.

Me and my bros would be happy to meet up with Garcia in the city and then out from there.

Just let us know what time....

Looking forward to this!
