Too much moderation is bad for you.

Hey Britbikers...apologies for not sharing rally updates on the forum. Will try to do better going forward, phone permitting.

Arrived Monday, met with Shane after arriving Sydney. Shane arranged bikes for a few and we left the next day for a 3 day ride to the rally site in Victoria. Ride started with Shane, Steve, I on bikes, Pete & Trevor driving support and extra loaner bikes. Met with Gary & Debbie Roper from Oregon at day 1 pre-lunch stop. Overnighted near Tathra.
The ride was beautiful...nice country roads and scenic coastal views. Fish & chips lunch in Batemans Bay. Then more beautiful riding to Tathra.

The next day was to be up and over the Snowy Mountains, and unfortunately the weather decided to turn wet and cold. I opted to ride shotgun with Peter. The clouds were low hanging, the rain cold and the mountains and high plains beautiful.

More to come later, we are off for a ride to see more of Victoria.

Jim

The 2018 rally is over, and everybody has dispersed.

The Victorian club did a fantastic job of organising things, and we all had a great time.
Looking forward to Jim posting some of the myriad pictures he took once he arrives home; not just the rally but some of the scenery as well.

I caught up with some old friends and made some new ones. Our travelling companions were excellent company, the weather was excellent, and there was a nice mixture of rides.

Currently in Albury on the way home - back in the motel after a superb Thai meal and a couple of Peronis, and should be home tomorrow afternoon.

Life is good!

We also had a great time travelling with the blokes from NSW. Shane and I became friends climbing to the Pinnacles on the Grampians, Trevor and I sang Zappa songs together, Eric and I discussed old Indian mechanics, and Steve enlightened me regarding the proper way to fettle a bike for cross country rides. Seems we have a lot in common, not just BSAs. Shane and I were tractor riders and like the same music! The rally had something for everyone: farm equipment, fast motorcycles, scenery, and rooms for the criminally insane. Strange, they tried to get us to go into all the little rooms with the straight jackets. Good thing I didn't try them on or I'd still be there! The teas were always coming, I was able to throw a boomerang that actually returned to me, and we learned about Cooper's brews. Thanks to all the guys: Steve, Shane, Trevor, Mark, Peter, Eric, Jim and the friends that kept coming around to talk. We shared the cabin that was both the nearest to the venue tent and usually the center of attention at the rally due to the antics of the boys from NSW. I rode Thomas' Yamaha to the Great Ocean Road after the rally yesterday and found myself on the ferry from Queenscliff to Sorento as the sun went down. Riding back up to Narre-Warren in the darkness was interesting to say the least for this right hand side of the road rider. I'll post some pics after we return to the states. "It's good to be us!"
