Hi VA,

Sent you a PM and would love to come. Will probably have to meet somewhere as I'm a Geelong person.

Right down on the waterfront where they have spent all that money on developing a "cafe precinct" there are some good coffee&cake places (I think) and plenty of room to park bikes....

Hi Guys,

It sounds like a great weekend!!

I am just trying to convince the wife that she wants to do it!! She is on ZZr 250 so not sure if it might be too fa for her?

Otherwise, are there any other local rides going on?

If the weather is not good we will not go. Not too enjoyable riding in the wet and cold!!!

Otherwise... Can't wait!

With the people that live on the East side of the Bay.. My Wife and I are thinking we will catch the ferry and get to Geelong that way?

Would there be anyone else up for travel across the ferry?

Hi all

Just checked out the weather forecast for tomorrow - not looking too flash (rain, possible hail and thunder storms) think i will catch up on some much needed zzzz's. Been traveling the last 2 weeks - China then WA then SA for work - ahhhhh, to be back in Melbourne! (there is not a better town in my opinion)

Weather does not look promising for the weekend!!!

What are the journey plans? we are planning to go across to Geelong via the Ferry as we are south eastern... Are there any takers for the ferry?

Hopefully weather holds out!!

Hey Andrea,

Hope your other half is OK and just as importantly i hope you are traveling ok to mate, sometimes it is harder to be the carer than the caree.

Thinking of you both.

Not good news Andrea. Hope things are on the improve. After getting home from the Gold Coast holiday on the Saturday a couple of mates and I flew down to Apollo Bay to catch up with you guys. Didn't see you and din't know of the cancellation until logging in tonight. No wonder i didn't see you all:mad:
