ANother great ride, met up with a lot of interesting people that own Kawasaki bikes. Met Peter (PK2000), Annetter (unknown user name), Joffaboy and Colsie. There were probably over 500 bikes for sure and we were all escorted by the Police from ALbert Park to Frankston and back. The only thing that was itching me was how slow we were moving, but anyway, better that than fast and unsupervised, right?
The Police band at Albert Park was a great touch to the end of the ride, Joffa might disagree but I thought it got pretty interesting after they started singing "SPider Man". Some of the guys found the big chested lady member of the band more interesting than the songs, ha ha.
I will post some pics soon.

Thanks for looking at the photos mate, that bike was a VN900 in Meanstreak green. Good looking isn't it?

Where were you, did you see me?

Yeah the exhaust note on it was superb. I was around the middle of the pack, just riding solo. Think i saw your bike when stopped at frankston, though there was a nice 996 duc that had my attention.
