A friend and I are going to Phillip island for the Superbikes in 2018.
We'll leave on 21st February and take two days to get there.
The route we take will be nice winding roads, possibly staying around the Bright area overnight.
Next three days at the island- looking to spend the extra on Aussie Superbike Club package which enables us to be inside if needed. This also provides lunch and others goodies over the three days.
We'll take two days to return also. Getting back on ...27th.
We have a three bedroom house already booked in Cowes which is walking distance to places to eat.
This is where you come in (see! it wasn't just a brag!).
We will take only two more people.
Cost still being worked out. Entry will be $685, accommodation around $400, plus the two nights there and back.
If you would like to join us, be quick.
So after serving this business for a few years the time has come to say farewell to a loyal friend.
This bike has helped out on many courses and, although it has worked hard, is in great shape.
It has always been well looked after and had the best oils, has a brand new front tyre and a nearly new rear, new brakes, reupholstered seat, LED lights that switch up with high beam, attachment to power a TomTom and a service history from when I bought it.
If you would like a very reliable and good friend to join you on tours, you have found the right bike.
Call or email to discuss price.
I was at... a loss! We live in the Shire, I had heard about Stay Upright, HART and the like but there was nothing on the southern area of Sydney!
One quick call to the RMS changed all that. The lady gave us Skill Master Motorcycle
What a gem this called turned out to be! Paul Riley from Skill Masters is not a fan of "doing the test to pass" he is a genuine bloke that provided both my wife and daughter with the necessary skills to not only pass the test but also save their lives!
Needless to say, both had passed the test with flying colours!
Skill Master Motorcycle
Their next ride is Sydney, the Rock & Reef, one that interests me greatly!
I think before this though I have to book one of their courses so I can improve my skills!
P.S: Oh and Dianne's cookies are really tasty.
Well put together viewpoints and makes a lot of sense. Fatigue and boredom will soon become bigger killers if we don't do this.
Road fatalities have been in steady decline for years due to vehicle safety improvements and policing that targets the worst offenders. Despite this, serious in...juries have been on the rise at over 12,000 this year. The majority occur in urban areas under 70 km/hr, rather than high-speed collisions.
Research overseas has shown that roads are significantly safer when limits are set to what drivers are most comfortable with, at the speed range where the least accidents occur. Instead of sticking with default limits that are applied to vastly different zones, we can measure driver behaviour and produce safe limits.
At last. Some common sense demonstrated by those who manage roads. Hope someone in Oz takes note.
Each year Breakfast Torque is on to encourage riders. At Heathcote Oval, this Sunday morning (29th) from 8-11, it will again present riders with information, stunt shows, riding demos (this year I'll be doing one of these but it will be more about some basic skills many riders never quite get), stalls, guest speakers, a crash scenario and don't forget the free breakfast. Created to be an event to inform riders and help them get the most from riding safely. Hope to see you there. You don't have to be a rider to enjoy this great morning.
