Was looking at it, but my brother said A and B grade were full so we cut it away. Haven't even bothered to bring my leathers.

I'll be doing a day in Jan. I got caught in the slowest group when I took a mates spot who couldn't go once. I couldn't move up because the fast group was full. Was a dangerous day. Couldn't punch out consistent laps trying to dodge wobblers.

Macca, Benny et al, if this hot weather every decides to bugger off then I would be up for a ride. Could be fun to ride with some other S1000rr enthusiasts. I often get up Kinglake way. Was at the family Xmas in Strath Creek today, took the cager thank god!!! So damn hot and windy with crap all over the roads definitely not a day to be on the bike which was a real shame as lots of good roads to and from there.

A few family members stayed away this year with Black Saturday still alive in peoples memories. Fortunately none of my family got caught up in that horror but it has made everyone a bit jumpy on days like today.

That might work Between now and the new year is a busy time for everyone. I will wait to see what the 7 day weather forecast is looking like in a weeks time and then throw out some possible dates.

Monday 4th of Jan or Tues 5th are possibilities for me. Probably Tues will be better with less holiday traffic around. We could meet up at Kinglake servo.....
