Rightio!! The last of the pics from the AGM from me ..
The day dawned bright and cheerful .. ok it was slightly overcast. Breaky was do it yourself so Cray and I met up with Rodaco and Pam as we headed over to the local bakery for something yummy. Wasn't long before Happy found us too. Umm no pics from me for this auspicous occasion .. they're on Cray's phone and if you can pry that out of his hands for 10 seconds to get a pic from it good luck
While we were there we looked at the weather maps .. umm the next day was going to be rain and strong winds on Mount Hotham .. and that was the way we were headed ... umm time for an executive decision .. it was unanimous .. Cray and I decided to give the Sunday ride a miss and get over that mountain while the going was good. The rain was bad enough but twisties .. and mountain twisties which I have never done before and Cray hasn't done in years .. with strong winds thrown in, just didn't sound like fun.
So everyone met to line up the bikes again this morning .. this time it was organised and we were under strict instructions about where to park .. and which angle to park at .. and how to dismount .. oh OK I made that last bit up.
The bikes did look good all together in a line like that.
People were even lying on the ground to get pics .. I would never go that far honestly ...
In between getting pics of bikes we said our goodbyes to everyone ... hope we got everyone, not sure that we did .. but there were a lot of hugs going on
Finally the last bike turned up and parked at the end of the line .. anyone recognise those handlebars?
Then we gave all our cameras to Helen and she took some happy snaps of the riders with their bikes .. everyone smile
Ok let's just try to get everyone looking at the camera ...
Alright then .. everyone look at Corky ?
Alright close enough ...
We had said as many goodbyes as we could fit in .. and it was time for eveyone to roll. People started getting on their bikes and the leaders and followers had one last discusion ...
Then they left on their adventure and we went to quickly pack our gear to head on the next part of our adventure.
Pics of the guys leaving will be posted up as a slideshow again, as I got a few too many pics to post up seperately.
Pics of the rest of our adventure will not be shared here .. it's just our holiday, but if you are interested as soon as I get the time I'll be posting it all up on the blog .. just give me a week or two to get organised then come check it out

george: Hi Gordon. You should post you question on the Honda Shadow Mods board in the Bike Talk area. Easier for people to reply there.
