  • 250 Friendly Ride today?

    Just putting it out there.

    I was driving through gidgegannup the other day and saw a heap of bikes on the road. thought that on a decent day i would get out there on the bike.

    Thinking about heading out at about 12ish if anyone is free and wants to come. I've never been on a group ride, and i am on a CBF250, so i will be going at CBF250 pace, but if anyone faster wants to come along, i wont feel bad at all if you take off at your own pace. Just dont expect me to keep up.

    I'm near Carousel so prob leave from that sort of area.

    Meet 1pm outside the foundry.

      Interested, how long you planning to being out for ?

      I recently got new tyres put on the black shadow and wouldn't mind doing some distance to help get off the wax off.
      When I get sad, I stop being sad, and be AWESOME instead. True story.

              Well i was thinking about heading out to o'brien road, and was going to go solo but thought anyone else wanting to come along would be great.

              as far as a group ride and leading and such, like i said i am pretty new to it all so if there is any more than a couple of people, thats brilliant, but would prob be better for everyone if someone other than me set the pace.

              also, i'm not going to be in the least bit offended if you faster lot want to stretch the legs a bit and take off. i'll still enjoy it.

              could push it back to 1ish if it suits people more. wasn't really thinking about any time frame to get back. 2-3 hours later? longer if its going too well.

                    there are a couple of options for rides if ob's is covered in shit, although it is always best to do a reccy if you want to go quick. Atleast with ob's you can ride the one way to scope it then have fun on the way back. i can lead if you want dude.

                        That road always seems to be bad.

                        I havn't been up there in ages, is there still blue metal everywhere ?

                        I'll have to take the bike out and see how bad the wax factor is if we're heading out that way
