Worlds Greatest Shave

Posted by Peter (Chopper) on April 7, 2019 at 4:45 AM Comments comments (3)
At the Presidents meeting today Gatton Branch raised an idea to support the Worlds Greatest Shave day and hold an event in March next year at the Gatton showground, now I would like to support this event and propose as a Branch representative I will grow my hair, from now (however bad it looks) and have it shaved on that day. We should have a Branch ride out to Gatton and show our support I will however need some donations/sponsorship. If you think that this is a 'goer' please let me know.

Ride idea tomorrow

Hi All. I am going to go for a ride tomorrow (Friday) Looking at going to Helidon and coming back through via Back Flagstone Creek Rd. This is the road Jay showed us on her Roads less travelled ride. Morning tea at the floating cafe in Granthum and open to suggestions from there on. Looking for a companion or 2 to keep me company. Leaving Maccas Yamanto at 10 am. From what I can remember, this road has quite a few twisties but nothing to be worried about cheers. Ado

Hi everyone, hope your Christmas planning isn’t too draining and that you’re finding time to keep sane.

Ado and I have been on a few trips to plan our Christmas Lights Night Ride … and this is what we have come up with.

Leaving Yamanto Maccas at 700 pm ish- we know that the advertised ride says 6:30 pm but what’s the use of looking at lights if the night sky isn’t with us.

We will slow drive-by visit the lights around Ipswich region, and ride t...
