I will really try to make it on Sunday but as far as I am concerned it depends on the weather because I'm still getting use to my bike and wet weather has the tendency to scare the crap outta me .......... I'll blame that on my age and the will to get older LOL ;)

See you Sunday morning all going well :D

Out of curiosity guys, and forgive me if I am ignorant at this (it's my first Toy Run), what will you be wearing? Will you be decorating your bikes, or will you be wearing something special? How about the presents. how many are we suppose to take? Can wa take cash instead in an envelope? Can someone or better yet can everybody tell me what they are doing and wearing?:D

Well IndioGomez as far as I'm concerned I have dug out an old helmet to which I've glued a Santa Hat and I have a back pack with a Christmas Stocking around it with a LARGE teddy that is my present in it and he has an Aussie Flag in his paw. The bike has some tinsel and raindeer andlers on the tail section ...... don't know if you'll notice me or not LOL

Sure hope weather is kind to us .......... see you ALL tomorrow :)

I'm riding in with a friend. My red reindeer has grown antlers and a big red nose. Colsie, I'll give you a ring when we get to Cranbourne, but if we don't manage to hook up then safe riding everyone, and have fun. :D PS. I heard there is a Bon Scott tribute band and a sausage sizzle going on at Williamstown.

Hello ALL, I'm just home after what turned out to be a terrific day. I started off at Cranbourne car park about 8:50am and after parking the bike I wandered around not knowing who I was looking for but playing the part of belonging there really well :) Then I sighted a person that I thought matched his avatar, IndioGomez, and thankfully it was him. He was with Joffaboy and Colsie and I want to thank them ALL for a warm welcome. The ride to Williamstown was fantastic with the Police giving us special treatment along the Freeway and cutting off the cars and lanes on the Westgate so we had a smooth exit to Williamstown. Once there parking was easy with thanks to the Police and the Marshalls. The array of bikes was mind blowing and some people really go all out with dressing up themselves and their bikes ..... it was really nice to see :)

The one and only let down of the day ............... I never got a photo of myself and the bike, bummer LOL (but managed to get quite a few of others folks).

Once again my thanks to Colsie,IndioGomez & Joffaboy and my apologies to any other AKRF memember who I missed out on meeting.

A great day, and good to hook up with Colsie, IndioGomez and Joffaboy again. Sorry I missed you, Rob1943. Must have been getting a cuppa at the time, but will meet you sometime, no doubt. Sorry you coudn't make it, Andrea; you were missed. The boys were reduced to letching at a PVC-clad
Santa. Wish I'd had a camera to capture their faces! :D

You are so right on that one GPXBABE, we got caught bare handed looking at that Mini, I mean.... Woman.
Anyway, we missed everybody else, maybe next time we can organize with the whole Kawasaki Riders gang a get together before the Toy Run so we can have more numbers. The number to beat is 43, that was the biggest presence of members of a certain club.
By the way, Colsie and Joffa, I got lost because I had to leave straight after my misses rang, the little one was a bit unsettled. But thanks again for inviting me and for being there to ride with me, It was grat to finally meet Rob also, good on ya Rob. I will post some photos soon. Cheers

Yeah Zac
Was a great run.
I didnt catch up with AKRF guys and gals, was too busy talking and lookin at all the pretty bikes. :) :D :cool:

Run into williamstown was great, and the rumble through the tunnel was awesome. (sounding like a big kid).
Didnt get any pics of the run itself, (no pillion this year), but will post some pics in the next day or so. Couldnt be stuffed tonite,

Hi ALL, I have a couple of photo's and I'll see if I can post them in this thread and if they get thru look for the close up of one as it's of 2 guys I had not meet at the time of taking the photo's but as you will see it's Colsie and Allan. The pin up photo :D is of Allan as we got ready to leave from Williamstown. Sorry I missed you other guys down there as after handing in my gifts I wandered around taking pics of bikes and then headed for a feed in main street. Look forward to meeting up again possibly for the chrissy bash :)

(Footnote : I've just looked at the required file size for photo's and @ max of 112.7kb's for a jpg my photo's would look crap so sorry I won't post them here )

Rob :(

Rob1943
10-12-07, 05:26 PM
Hi again, sorry but I've used a program to reduce my pics and if they turn out crappy it's because the resolution is way below what they were taken at but if that's all is allowed so be it ......... least you get the idea I guess :)

IndioGomez
10-12-07, 05:57 PM
hey guys, sorry I took a while to upload the photos, but here they are: Just a few of the people that help out to load these gifts onto boxes. Check out the Star Wars Clone, that was probably the coolest dude I saw!

Thanks for the heads up on the Photobucket site Joffa and I've open an account but I'm not too sure what URL to put in here I'll try this one and see what happens :o

Besides this it looks like Allan seems to have covered most things so I will only try this one for now to see if this URL thingie works :rolleyes:

Cheers for now, if I post each of my pics that will get me much closer to my 100 posts ............. :p

Well Joffa it seems it works so guess what being a keen photographer I'll probably bore the S**t out of most of you now ............. nah don't worry I'll be kind and limit my input to what I hope is interesting to ALL. Please let me know if I do get too carried away with photo's or any other of my threads as I have a tendency to rabbit on a bit :rolleyes:

Rob1943
11-12-07, 02:23 PM
If I post more than one mate I'll use ALL my photo's up and not get my posts up to the 100 mark quick enough ........ LOL, only joking and yes they do look much better using this method and by the way mate Photobucket do restrict the size to 1024 x 768 but that's cool cause they show up nicely. ( My original photo's are in 3072 x 2304 but this means each one is approx. 3 - 4meg ! ).
