Thanks to Greg, Julie, and the human GPS otherwise known as David. Great ride and great people. That King River beer ain't bad either. 

Now time to clean a couple of kilos of bugs and dust off the old '300.

What a top long weekend - thanks so much for organising and to everyone for making it all happen!

Anyone got a 'poor ned' ear worm song going around in their heads?

Thank you David, it was a great weekend.  We were blessed with perfect weather, great company, great riding and thank you everyone for putting in some great Kelly history readings.  Hope everyone got home safely that wind was a bit of a test.

Thank you Greg and Julie for a wonderful well planned weekend away. History, myth, legend, story telling, dust and Vespas. With fun loving company, what a great combination. David

The Moyhu Hotel is now offering us a room at $80 per night, which works out as $40 pp. We will eat dinner there, and they are booking some music for us on Sat night too.
