South Australia / Toy Run in S.A. (5 Dec 19)

Lots of Spyders in the queue today, looks like most had a bath before coming.
I did the run to Hahndorf then the back roads home.
Sadly the Christmas Tree didn't like the twisty roads post freeway, didn't fall off but was horizontal on the carrier.
At least the Christmas Lights were still flashing.
Thanks to Stu for the big wave enroute at Bridgewater.
The kids were great along the route and I rate the Ryde as good as the Bay to Birdwood but just different.
The sound in the Heysen Tunnel was brilliant.  :victory:
Hopefully next year's weather will be more favourable to take my daughter as shotgun.
 :sunny:

Latest forecast is 39 degrees.
At this stage I'll not be enduring that temp.
May just go to Vic Park and drop my parcels off.

Seen a Northbound RTS on a rainy Sunday morning at 9am in the 50 Kay zone middle of town.
Flashed my lights and offered a thumbs up  :thumbup:, the Spyder was travelling with 3 or 4 two-wheeled warriors.
Hope you had a great day irrespective of the weather!

2020 Spyder Muster

Hi everyone, I had a get together with a couple of South Ozzies to discuss plans for our travel plans over to the 2020 Spyder Muster.
I will be riding some of the time and Sharon will be driving our car, towing a trailer which can take our Spyder.  We intend on taking 6 days to PERTH, approx. 5. > 7 hr travel time per day, somewhere around Avg. 450 km per day give or take, hoping still allowing for relaxed travel, rest stops and some sightseeing.   Depart Adelaide 9 days prior to the start of the muster.

DAY 1, 19th Mar   
At this point Dave Pye, Peter and Silvia  and maybe Burra will travel with us, leaving Adelaide together mid-morning on the 19th March for a 300 Km , 4  hour ride to stay over night at Port Augusta.

That is a good point.  We/I rode the relatively new RT to Hahndorf in 2017 and back home again without any problems.  Now with almost 30k on the clock it's tossing up error messages. Maybe it thinks WA is too far.  We'll see.

Given thar our bikes can be somwhat troublsome at times and its looong way there and back is anybody drving over with tools,or trailer room in case of breakdown.

 :confused0068:     :scared:  That's a good point really, taken from some HOG's procedure manual for group rides.  Heck I've seen WA Spyder owners trailer their trike to Ulysses events.  Who ever said reliability is a worry for Spyder owners, especially newer models? 


Actually, I think I may have alluded to that here and eslewhere on occasion.   :spank:  But we need to be realistic, practical and good scouts (prepared).  I've travelled east-west 6 times on my old GS and enjoy the ryde.
