    Looks like the cbr is suffering from fuel starvation, we have made it to tenterfield , I'm confident I can nurse it home from here

    yep, we are all good, the Honda seemed to be struggling for fuel but eventually I was able to rev her from idle to 10000 PRM without loosing power.

    thanks everyone for a great weekend, already finished my first beer :thumb_ups:

    Here is the route

    Thanks to all those that could make it a great weekend. Good weather, good (mostly) roads and good company. A day of rest and I will be ready again. :dance2:

    haha GI< yes sir, we bow to you

    Here are a few more pics, the lodgings were a bit dated, but that didn't matter because as soon as my head hit the pillow, I was out. Coffee in tenterfield, then onto Warwick

    We did manage to drop into Morgan Park for quick hello to @Brizfox and @danlar81 , both lads were pulling some great times out on the track. Dan had an off and was getting his spare bike ready for the next race so we didn't stick around.


    I will tee another ride up in October this year, they really are fun and we hope to see some new faces on the next ride as wella s the usual suspects. :thumb_ups:

    Great to meet everyone. Huge thanks to Kiffsta for the loan bike and for nursing it back to his place. Looking forward to the next get together ride. I will post some video when I get home.

    Cheers
