Hey mate, did they say if there is anywhere to throw a swag down? most biker events at country pubs have beer gardens/balconies/grassed area that they don't mind people chucking a swag on for the night

Post by: bigmick on Friday, 27 January 2017, 12:33 pm
I really don't know mate. 

Bov is probably the man to ask - perhaps contact him, try PM here or more likely will get info ion this via the Aussie FB group if you are on that.  I know Bov monitors that reasonably often.

There's probably someof you know this area like the back of your hand, but in any event for tripplanning a local-isg guy has toldme:

Quote
Waterfall way from the coast to Dorrigo is a really great ride Michael. Also the Kyogle to Uki then over the range via Tyalgum and Chillingham. I'd give the Putty a miss these days unless you haven't done it before (really rough last time I rode it). Thunderbolt's Way from Gloucester to Uralla still a good ride esp the top half

Title: Re: Aus MCR 9 - Our Annual Get Together Weekend
Post by: Bov on Wednesday, 22 February 2017, 03:34 pm

Hmm you might just be right. Just googled it and got this back:

"verb - transitive. to give someone a ride on the handlebars of one's bicycle. Australian. We gotta get there quick - I'll dinky you."

In the UK, Dinky is slang for "Double Income No Kids Yet" as well as used for something small, probably from the Triang firm who produced Dinky Cars (model cars) for kids to play with back in 60's and 70's.

Never heard it being used for riding on handlebars though..... :whatever:

That doesn't make sense?  If he is looking to free up a room, and I can't come, then that's a free room?


My shoulder is still quite sore, I haven't ridden in a couple of months now and a trip away (especially as I was planning to go on to Sydney afterwards) is likely going to be too much.  I may have to make a tough decision....

Snapey believe me as much as I like the motoGP I would very much prefer to be an MCR !


I didn't restart this forum so I could stay home and watch TV...  :cry2:

Is your shoulder so bad that you can't go in a car? This bloody sob story tells me you never wanted to go in the first place & using a shoulder problem seemed a good excuse to get out of it. This event is not all about the ride, it's a social event  with your internet friends too, so stop feeling sorry for yourself & go to Dorrigo. Two ways ... drive or HTFU and ride.

Thanks to all who attended wot was another fantastic weekend, hope you all enjoyed it enough to attend next years event.
We stayed dry until the last hour on Friday but on Saturday by the time it stopped raining for many it was too late  :cheers:  :cheers: Hic.
Our ride home was in perfect sunshine thankfully, and after a lunch break in Grafton made it home by 1.30pm, just in time for V8's and GP.

Please post up any photos you have if only to make the poms jealous.  :clapping:

Great weekend away.
Pity the weather on Sat stopped the ride going ahead, but 5 of us got out for a quick spin at 2pm.
The extra day that Irish in Oz, Buddy & I added on worked out well, with good weather for our ride up the Oxley Hwy to Walcha for the night. Pity Irish was riding some old ugly looking Yamaha that ruined any photos  :whistling:

A great weekend, for sure the weather could have been better, but it's those details you will remember for ever. It certainly tests your mettle when it rains as hard as it did on Friday upon our arrival. I have posted some photos also.

Great bunch of people and made some great new friends  :boogie: :boogie: :boogie:

Well - I must publicly put out a massive THANK YOU to Jeff. He gave me the opportunity to attend the MCR by lending a bloke he had never met his GSX1400.

S0 - it is my fault that he had to take an inferior motorcycle on the trip and park it separately and defend the FJR all weekend  :stir: :rofl2:

Yeah Buddy, it was a top thing he done there, as you say & that shows the type of guy the funny Irish bastard is  :salute:  :onya:
Just don't tell him i said nice things about him  :grin:

Hope you had an uneventful journey home & it was great riding with you both for 4 days & spending quality "men bonding" time together (don't take that the wrong way either)  :grin:

Wal, Mark and I had a fantastic ride home - the Gwydir Hwy up the Gibraltar Range was especially awesome (except for that one unintentional stop), the Bruxner was good except for a little bit of traffic, the ride up through Urbenville was bumpy but great and lastly the scoot up the Mt Lindesay Hwy was once again fantastic, although I was worn out by that point and was left for dead!!

Was a privalege to meet up with you all again or meet you for the first time. Looking forward to early November 2018 :onya:

He should be there most of the time Chris, there is a workshop out the back with a hoist and shit everywhere.
His sort of father in law owned the place but he passed a few years back so he sort of inherited it through his missus  :confused1:
I was giving him some advice on testing electrics on a Suzuki V twin and he wanted to stay and find the intermittent fault lol.
Nice bloke.
