    We're fortunate in Melbourne as we have our own 250 group who meet regularly and organise rides. One of the founders is a member on this forum (@Joker) and the group has its own FB page where they promote events etc. Search for Club250 and you should find them. They're a proper club and have membership and can organise Victorian Club registration for your bike too. They recently had a ride that I was hoping to go on, but as usual, I didn't make it. They're also planning a Tasmania Ride in February 2020 if you're interested. I think this link will take you to their FB page https://tinyurl.com/y4rol2my

    Too bloody hot for anymore Bunnings for a while. We might have to look at the evening get togethers where ever they are held now.

    If I wake up enthused enough I may get out there Sunday ... it at least looks like much lower temps than the usual lately and Im without child ... but the forecast keeps changing

    Yep nice turn out with some reasonable weather as well :thumb_ups:

    Something I tried yesterday and used alot today was clutchless upshifting .... 2nd/3rd to top with decent revs and its silky smooth , if u get it right .... being wary of your speed though as that gets up pretty quick too :cool:

    The Sunday mornings have started up again with lots of cars and 11 bikes. Don't know if a ride was organised as not well so went home early.

    It was tossed out of Bunnings due to 'mass gathering' restrictions , so moved to a random carpark next to the river

    Biggest crowd Ive seen for awhile though ... everything from bandana heads to Asian rice racers :D

    Was a good gathering, many more than I thought would be there. And I was the only 250cc there. :p

    Wow, it would be nice to be able to go outside, meet people and not have to wear a mask.
    Sigh!!!!!
