Join us as we ride to Mt Baw Baw! This year is a little different!For the adventurous, Noel and Jo are considering camping on Loch Valley Rd, about 8km from Noojee on Saturday night. Imagine cooking over the open fire, sipping on a beer or local glass of red, at one with nature..... Having said that there are toilets at the campsite! It is a large purpose built area.For those who prefer creature comforts, pub accommodation is available at Neerim South Hotel, 16 minutes from Noojee, or slightly…See More
Great to meet you and Greg today....no worries at all, I was already well up the hill when I saw you guys turning off but as I also needed fuel figured I’d make my own way home.

It’s cold, wintery weather. To quote the immortal words of The Chats, “all I want, and all I need, all I crave is a good pub feed.”(Check out the song here.... https://youtu.be/1LGM82uPuvA)Weather permitting, The Gippy Crew will ride to The Warburton Hotel for lunch on Sunday July 21st.

Oink oink! Toot toot!We’re off to the Pig and Whistle in Trentham East for lunch. This quaint 1940s hotel sits at an isolated intersection amongst a farmland setting once famous for potato growing in the area’s rich red volcanic soil. The food at this hotel has been personally road tested by Pete, Jo, Noel and David and determined to be several cuts above standard pub fare. Ride description:This is a cracker of a…See More
"Hi Bo, Another simple option is to pop the oil feed tube off the engine and drain all of the mineral oil out through the tube. (might take a while so make a cup of tea...) Save the old 2T for the lawnmower/chainsaw or squeaky hinges.
Once the old…"
"Hi David, thanks and makes total sense. Had a soft seize on my old Lambretta years ago on a country highway run down to Second Valley in SA - fuel too lean for sustained high speed cruising - not fun!"
"Hi Bo, its not a good idea to mix synthetic with mineral based oil. I've been told by a motorcycle shop that the lubrication technologies of each type is too different. I was also advised not to mix two different brands in the same tank.…"

Hi Bo, we look forward to seeing your red special in the display in Maling Road tomorrow. I believe you said you were arriving around noon. Its probably best to approach Maling Road from the south down Bryson Street. You'll have to wheel you scoot through the crowds being careful not to scratch the Rolls Royces along the way, ha ha. Sunny morning, rain later in the afternoon. See you tomorrow. David
