Snowy 2015

Slowly creeping towards us... the date this year for The Snowy Ride is Sat 7 Nov 2015.
Be really nice if we get a dry period this year... last years rain was... well, not awesome.
We'll be heading down Thursday 5th.... it makes for a nice break having a couple of days either side.

Who else is thinking of going this year..... its nice to catch up for a drink and chat if we can arrange it in our busy social schedule....

Re: Snowy 2015

Getting closer, no one else thinking of heading down (up/over)?

Re: Snowy 2015

One of our former LT mates, Barry Lane, is heading back down to Snowy this year from Brissy. Will be good to catch up. Think he's on an ST1300 these days.

Re: Snowy 2015

Sun is finally trying to shine through in Thredbo after a very rainy start.
Numbers seem down at the moment, maybe more will ride in tomorrow with better weather predicted for the weekend

Re: Snowy 2015

Thought I should update since its been a couple of weeks since we got back...
2358 registered riders (includes pillions and anyone else who paid to go)... so probably at least 2000 bikes. Great weather for the weekend, beautiful ride up to Charlotte Pass this year.
Here's a video clip of what The Snowy Ride is really all about.. raising funds for research to help kids with cancer

Re: Snowy 2015

Would love to come out and do this ride with you and Kerry next year or the one after. Hopefully all healed up by then! Sounds like a good excuse to head down to your part of the world again!

Re: Snowy 2015

If you feel so inclined Tony I'll be happy to help sort you out at this end.
Possibly this time next year (still going to Snowy 2016, accommodation already pre-booked) we'll likely be up to our necks in renovations at home... half the house being replaced.
I reckon 2017 it will all be done with and we'd be happy to have you and Suze come visit, if you want a base point.
Plenty of time to look for a bike too.. (got a mate with 2005 for sale... lol, shame its "gold").

Could even do a followup trip down to Tassie again..... mmmmmmmmmm

Here in the states we call that color Urine Yellow.

2017 might work. Every time I try to get to the site, it seems that they have connections from USA blocked. Grrrrr.
