Here are a few pics from the weekend. Sorry if some are a bit blurry I tried to adjust them as best I could.


The venue for the Muster


Crappy looking good


John relaxing


The checkers did a fine job, here is Jeff the Chef, Philmor, Skidoo with Gateman having his ride checked




Derrick and Tory


Spaz and Farkleit having their routes verified


IBA Tiger, Tele and Wombattle


Liz and Marls, did they really chop all that wood?


Kwaka with Derrick


Gateman, Crappy, Gags with first timer Liz (Derrick plus 1). Well done Liz on seeing it through to the finish, you looked as fresh as a daisy at the end!

Vlad, KiwiMartin and Pillion Piglet


Derrick plus 1 (Liz) with Derrick, IBA Tiger and Jeff the Chef close by


Congratulations to Henk who after having to hang up his riding gloves accepted Jeff the Chef's very kind offer of a lift as a pillion to the Muster.
It was great to see you there Henk.


Spaz receiving his certificate from Skidoo


Tory


Hagar, is he trying to kiss Skidoo??


Hackle


IBA Tiger did a fine job as Quartemaster at the event


Group photo taken at the memorial for the 3 Policeman killed by the Kelly Gang in 1878




Gee they learn quick, a good power nap is worth a good night sleep in this LD riding caper, as first timer Derrick plus 1 (Liz) found out, no wonder you looked so fresh at the finish Liz.... Well done to you.

Guess mine should go here too?

All the front and instruments behind the bars, then down the right side.

Collecting some fur.

Lights now point up or down, but not ahead.

Banana-shaped light-guard.

Bars saved the engine, but plucked the frame at the upper rear mount.

Roo hit centre and back legs took out RHS plus kicked the wheels out from under me.

I am actually pleased the roo hit full on. That pulled the speed down a bit and it was a slower hard drop to the road.

240 kg of propelled bike at 90 kph versus 120kg of roo at 30 kph tangential impact …………… Yep, do the math and see what forces were generated. It would have been nice to miss it altogether, but a bit more left or right side and I think I would have ended up a lot more second hand.

As they say: ……………… BUGGER!

Thanks folks! Was so sorry to miss this year, but it was for a good cause ( being Jeltje's handbag at a conference in Unzud). Terrific to see those pics.

Ah Mick, we've talked about this already, but still really feeling for you. Glad you are in one piece.

Henk you let me know if you ever want to do a ride with me, I'd be honoured to have you as my copilot.
