Red face Trout Rally - Snowy Mountains

G'day Guys,

The Trout Rally is on again this year on the weekend of the 4-6 November.
Simone and I have been attending this for a number of years now. It is held at a place called Three Mile Dam between Kiandra and Cabramurra. Very nice spot. The rally is pretty sedate and its all BYO everything. We missed last year as we totalled our bike on the way up due to a diesel spill. So I am determined to make it and enjoy a relaxed weekend. Any one interested in attending let me know in this thread. It would be good to see a few LT's side by side.
Spike perfect way to put some km's on your new machine.
Just for info our bike has just had it's 20,000km service, not bad milege for ony having it 10 months.

20,000 in 10 Months WOW! I only covered around 55,000 in four years on my last bike. I think I'll do more on the LT though. Had it for 9 days now and have around 1,500.
No doubt put a few k's on it a Christmas as we'r headed for Melbourne to catch up with the family. We plan on taking 5 or 6 days on the way down, spend a week down around Melbourne then around a week coming back.

Won't make the Trout Rally unfortunately, work's going to be flat out between now and Christmas, thanks for the invitation though.

There's a few of you around Melbourne If your around the place just after Christmas and want to go for a bit of ride
let me know we might be able to work something out. It would be good to meet some of the people on this site in person.

Also you guys around Sydney, we should be passing through there around 20th December "approximately"
haven't set an exact departure date as yet.

sheesh...
6 weeks for me now and only 1700km...
I'd better get off my ass (on my ass?) and get some more k's under my belt...

then again, the more time it takes to get round to the next service... more cash in pocket for fun things

6am perfect day in sunny Melbourne, Nice sedate ride to the Snowy Mountains via Kiewa Valley. Lots of nice twisties, radio blarring away. Arrive before sunset at Three Mile Dame, Set up camp, Say g'day to other fellow riders and then turn in.
Up at the crack of dawn, nice little Trout or maybe bacon and eggs for breaky. Lifes wonderfull.

Can't wait.

Talking What a Weekend

G'day Guy's,

Had a brilliant weekend, made it to the Trout Rally with perfect weather. About 80 bikes of all ages and brands showed. Great atmosphere. We will be heading back again first weekend in November.

"We will be heading back again first weekend in November"
????????????
Hi Jake, it must have been good, you've totally lost your sense of time!!!

Why don't you try & come up for the Snowy Ride.... or have I asked that already...?
Party of LT's would be great.... I know there were some others there last year that I guess aren't on this list.
We'll be there from 26th to 27th November in Thredbo.
