Toy Run Ipswich

Posted by John (Colonel Bow) on October 30, 2019 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (1)

For those who read the "motorcycle rider" website you may have noticed that it says that the Ipswich toy run is to be held at Winston Glades shopping center this year. Please note this is not correct and I have confirmed with Ian "foggy" Winter that as usual it will be held at Brassell shopping center, he has contaced Mark at Motorcycle Writer to correct this error ASAP.

EDIT: The error has now been corrected.

Stayed at the Country Club Hotel Motel as usual and enjoying excellent food .Watched some great trackwork , and this year we were privileged to see six rigid frame Indian Scouts from Victoria racing.

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 & ...

Sorry to hear another ulysses has passed on :( .

On another topic I am puting on a mystery ride on the 5th of Nov.

I will be leaving clues on the website as to where we are going, the first person to guess our destination either on the web page or at the start of the ride on the day will win a $10 scratchie. You will not have to get the exact location the closest guess wins.

So keep an eye on the ride calender for my clues.

Have fun

Hi there folks. Just got back from this years Black Dog I Dayer Ride. For those that aren't aware of the event it's a National I day ride which is open to anyone who has a motorcycle and wants to join in.

The rain was the spoiler today as numbers were down but still it managed to get around 200 bikes. approx. In the end there was just me , Ian (mate wh...

How good was that ride!! Thanks Smurf for leading the pack. Small in numbers but big in value. We ended up with 7 at the lunch table but thoroughly enjoyed the day. Just shy of 400kms!!! For those that like a long ride this one was for you.

I took a ride last week and ended up going on a ride I am sure we have all done before including me. But I have not done so for some time.

I left Ipswich and went down the motorway to enoggera, then along samford road to samford, (I was born at Enoggers and my old stomping grounds were from there to Samford, so much has changed) dropped by the samford rail disaster memorial on McLean road south before samford.

Then on to Dayboro for a light snack and to watch the bikes coming and ...
