Smile Melbourne - Coffee Morning

G'day everyone,

Firstly Simone and I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas. It's going to be busy season again so please take care.

How many of us are living in Melbourne or for that matter Victoria. Thought it may be a good idea to look at having a coffee morning. I was looking at my roster and Saturday the 15th is good form me. Great time to look over bikes and discuss the finer points of LT's

Once we see how many are interested I will come up with a location that would suit hopefully everyone.

Ride Safe

Smile Coffee, You mean REAL COFFEE !!!!

Oh, how we dream of coffee !!! Loads and loads here, just bl**dy too stong. "Mucho mucho Leche por favor" helps, but boy does it give you a buzz.
Great idea for a get-together, we'll be there in spirit.
Chris, take care with the X'mas do's. Cheers

Talking

Coffee, real coffee, Hilton you may not like the coffee where you are but I reckon the cakes/pastries and chocolate would make up for that.

Chris, you gotta harden up. 9hrs of riding is easy and you could drink coffee at your Christmas party. Just think you could start a trend.
Dam my ears are burning as I type this. Yep, I know Chris I will give myself a talking to.

Ian how does Healesville sound, The Wattle Seed Cafe. Its at the start of the main drag on the left side as you come in. I am pretty flexible on location and time so if thats not suitable let me know. Time, I thought about 0930.

Enjoy your morning fellas.

I know Hilton and Rena are enjoying theirs, especially if all he's got to complain about is the coffee's too strong!

Smile No complaints

Nope, none at all. Back in France looking south towards the Pyrenees. Slight dusting of snow. In this part of the world, " Le grand café au-lait svp " works a treat. Thank god for "bable-fish" Enjoy the coffee where ever in the world you are. The important thing, Enjoy the Ride. Cheers.

G'day Everyone,

Looks like we do not have too many followers in Vic.

Ian 1000 is fine by me. Some time between 1000 and 1030 will makeits easier for others that may wish to come.

G'day Everyone,

If the Coffee morning is too far away we can always meet somewhere central if needed. Williams Town maybe. If changes are needed or you cannnot make it, then let me know via here or give me a ring on my mobile o428311205.

Axle after Christmas could be a good time for another coffe as well. All subject ot temps and fire season for me.
