I am toying with the idea that a bunch of us spend a weekend early next year riding out to Dalby and going on a Glider flight. There is weight limit of 110 kg for those intending to fly. If anyone is interested please get back to me and we work out times and dates. Regards Toddy.

Rizzo???s / Ray"s Ride to Cabbage Tree Point

Posted by Ray (BENO) on July 21, 2018 at 2:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Hi all I am just writing this blog to thank everybody who came on Rizzo’s / Ray’s ride last Sunday. Well I left home at 7:30 under beautiful clear skies heading from Durack to Yamanto when I got there I asked Spook how cold it was we worked out it was 0 degrees and my fingers were freezing. So for such a cold morning we got a good response off riders and pillions I do not know exactly how many bikes but there were 24 people all up. We left Yamanto at 9:00 AM still cold, Ado & ...

Hi All. Just be aware there is a red light camera at the 2nd set of lights when you leave the Yamanto Shopping Centre heading towards Purga/ Brisbane. If you look to the left when you are in line with Super Cheap, just after Maccas, it is on the left footpath. Cheers. Ado

Hi team

Thanks to everyone who either put in an act,supported the acts, provided some gnomes, provided some groans or otherwise supported the 2nd Ipswich Branch talent quest.

Next year we have to win our Golden Gnome back....start practicing!

Update Tyroola motorcycle tyres

Posted by John (Colonel Bow) on June 13, 2018 at 2:40 AM Comments comments (1)

Just an update to the Tyroola motorcycle site, I ordered my tyres today as my front tyre was $131.00 but my rear one had dropped to $88.00 anyway I found out they do not have tyre fitting partners for motorcycle tyres yet.

However all is not lost as I rang around motorcycle places here in ipswich and found that Ultimate Motorcycles at west ipswich will fit them for $22 each. So now with delivery ( $55) to my house and fitting the total cost to me is $317 bucks for 2 PIRELLI ...

Well I recieved a shock when I arrived at the puma at Bundamba on Sunday arvo to refuel for a trip to Allora on monday, after travelling home from our memorial day via Esk.

Not having the time to retrace my ride until wednesday I knew it would be long gone, I phoned Esk and Laidley police but to no avail. So I have alrea...

Greeting fellow Ipswich branch members. I know some of you can't download photos to our web page and I have had this same problem for quite while.

As I mentioned at the last meeting if you are in need of new tyres for your bike check the prices at Tyroola  https://www.tyroola.com.au/motorcycle-tyre/sa/

I used to go to Mad Mick's but with these prices I cannot resist.

I am getting these Pirelli tyres


perfect for crusers because of the deep tread in the middle of the tyre, works out to $310 for the set for my bi...

Branch Information Nights

Hi All. A great night last night. We found that Splitty is not as quite as I first thought by being a business development manager by day, he. Is going to bring a new perspective to the branch. Great ideas and the enthusiasm to follow through with it. Silver Fox has taken to his role as ride coordinator with equal if not as much passion. The rest of your committee has decided to continue their wonderful work ethic and will continue to serve the branch selflessly. I look forward to a great and pr... Read Full Post »

2018 Branch Committee

Posted by Ado on April 25, 2018 at 5:10 AM Comments comments (1)
Hi All, As you can see most of your committee were voted back onto the committee. We lost our Ride Coordinator Smurf who is ably replaced by Silver Fox who will do a wonderful job. We also have a Vice President again in Splitty. Judging on how both men reacted to their portfolios I feel they will fit in with the rest of our hard working committee. I have full confidence in the people you have chosen to make decisions on behalf of the branch. I Look forward to another year of being your spokesman... Read Full Post »
