    Scott:

    Who is good with the route planning?

     

    maps.google.com 

    Finally had a look at maps.google.com and all I can say is THANKS!  I used Whereis.com.au in the past but that has now changed.

    Help appreciated and of full value Tubsta!

    Wife first, scooters and birds second.
    Got to remember that order......

    The 125cc Bug Agility is rather ill, may be terminal so onto the Mighty Mio 100!

    Hey folks!!!  Just a little insight into the 19th Weekend Trip.  I was planning on making this a long one. A long one where you don't have to put your foot down much (ie intersections, stopsigns etc).  Roads travelled on should not have speed limits more 80kms  ( fingers crossed, hope I'm not fibbing...)  Brisbanites if you keen to come along ,meet me at Garden City Saturday morning at about 9ish. and Gold coastrians if you keen to come up this way a little, meet me at the BP near Yatala (should get there about 10ish).  From Yatala, next stop will be lunch at a Mystery location. (Hope I can find it....heh heh heh) Springbrook is a little too far so it won't be there.

    I'd advise you to bring water.

    Now just to let you know, I was intending on doing this by myself to see what the terrain is like, as I'm baseing it on my memory from about 6-7 years ago. When Shell I did this 2 up on the Fzr1000.  So please don't crucify me if ride turns pear shaped.  (No reason I can forsee that it should but just saying...)

    Ya just can't beat having a good tinker.....

    Just to add a little note about the Social gathering nights.  If for some reason, your scoot is out of action or it's raining. Come anyway, walk, catch a bus or car, Car pool?  If it's raining on 1st February, I'll still be there same for 7th March.

     For the months after that, please nominate somewhere you'd like to try.  I figured that we could do this rather than stick with the same place.  Might give us something extra to talk about. The service? The food?

    Denni, Anthony! Don't be shy about nominating a place down the coast?  If you like it, it's fair game and I'll be interested to see how many Brisbinians I can drag down.  Actually (and I'll be posting this elsewhere as well.)  It's about time we caught up with Mr & Mrs Venturi and the new bub!!!

    Really sounds like someone is planning on running by the seat of his pants Tongue Tied

    What is life without a bit of adventure?  Bring it on! Big Smile

    Oh, and where at Garden City do you want to meet?  At the cinema entrance, under cover?

    Yep That sounds like the ticket. Also where we'll meet for the Social gathering.

    To get to this area folks. It's right under the cinemas where there is a good area for bike parking at one end closest to the shops.  Three enterances can get to it. The one on Logan road closest to lights if coming from the south, One on Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Rd adjacent to cinemas and the 3rd in the side street where the Shell Servo is,  All with visual range of the cinema complex.

    Choice!!!

    All sounds good Craig.......ironically my previously non-existant social calendar has started to fill up.  (I always said 2008 would be a better year!)  The 19th of Jan is out for me (am away for the weekend) and Feb 1st has been booked out for a while, I'll be in brissie, but am scooting up to have a long weekend and going to a concert that night in the city.  The rest of the weekend is pretty much booked out too.....but there is always March!!! 

    looking forward to catching up soon,

    Re: Brisbane Rides 2008

    Sounds great k-star!

    Will be at Garden City at 9ish...for me, probably come down via Logan Rd (or maybe even the SE Freeway :), and in via the Shell servo entrance.

    Water for us, but is there anything else you need? Re: the mystery location for lunch, how much lunch/play money will we need? :)))

    Fuel stops?

    Cheers!!!!!

    Re: Brisbane Rides 2008

    Hey people,

    I'll trundle down to Garden City to meet up, but won't come on the ride. Other things to do unfortunately. Plus it will give me a chance to get a route there from the city for the First Friday meet-up. And also time it. But should have plenty of time after work...

    See you around 9..

     Hi K-star,

    I looked up the BP servo and it gives the address as Stapylton, it's on the corner of Jacob Well Road  & Henry Hester Drive. Is this the one you mean?

    Mystery location for lunch huh...... sounds interesting!

    Look forward to seeing you all there around 10ish,

    Cheers,

    Denni:)

    Hey Dakoda,

    Are you coming down on the 19th? It would be good to have more female scooterists represented in the rides!!!

    Shazz was on the last ride but don't know if she is coming on this one though. 

    Mark it in your diary!!!!!!

    Join the others for the adventure ride down, had lots of fun when Anthony and I rode up, its an easy ride no roads over 80km.

    Hope to see you there.

    Cheers,

    Denni:)

    Yeah Denni, Stapylton/Yatala is the same place just depends on who you talk to & which side of the Freeway your on.

    Re: Brisbane Rides 2008

    I live in Newmarket, so will be going over Storey Bridge, and then onto Logan Road and out to Garden City if anyone wants/needs another person to convoy through the traffic.... Probably leave Newmarket around 8:10 so over Storey Bridge around 8:20 and then on to Garden City.
