    I have a brother in Ipswich who tends to ride thru the week as he works most weekends. 5 of us are riding out to Goondiwindi this weekend. I mainly ride around Tamborine Beechmont and Canungra on Sundays.

    I'm in the Switch, haven't quite got my trainer wheels removed, after being off bike for a lot of years I'm taking it steady. Did a quick run up Splityard Creek road (back of Wivenhoe) yesterday to try to understand the bike better, bumpy but fun.

    Tried again today... but, well you only have to look out the window...

    I'm on the Northside of Brissy,  ride Mt Mee, Melany, Somerset, Esk, Kenilworth areas for day trips when I can. Doesn't seem to be many catch ups with SE qld forum members, should get off our arses and organise some I suppose.

    Nice to see a 23% reply based on the number of views! Thanks to all who passed comment!

    I acknowledge its a big week, Anzac Day [important], then the gig at the RNA on Saturday [Hog Lights Sponsor among others].

    Any one wanting to ride this week and Sunday by all means let me know [2 weeks off...lol].

    Forecast showers till Saturday....and I still have some round the house jobs...so later in the week is best!

    Cheers and Beers!

    As Pauly says, that's a great ride. If you like the open road and a bit of diversity another good ride from out your way of head to Fernvale, Esk, up to Hampton, then Crows Nest, Cooyar, Yarraman, Blackbutt, Moore then turn right before Kilcoy and head back through Toogoolawah to Esk then to home. You get a bit of everything on that route.

    I'm in need to get some hours up on the bike, house jobs here to. Weather seems to hold until about 2-ish most days and then it is scattergun showers.

    I'm at North Ippy btw.

    I’m always keen.....got a couple of mates who’d be in too......all of us from Ippy. I know quite a few great backroads that turn into great loops around here too.

     Ipswich isnt that far from Brisbane or the Gold Coast so maybe put up a ride and see if you get any response. My bike is going back in for some more work soon but in about 3 to 4 weeks I'd be keen.

    Any Ipswich, westerrn suburbs based riders interested in exploring the great south east??

     There is a bike show / swap meet at Canungra on mothers day. Might be a good common destination for a ride for those available.

    I'll be camping on the HD that weekend down south but will try and get up there for a look on the way home

    Hi All,
    My apologies for the late reply [had to duck over the ditch to see the sister], no...[I'm not] ..... she married a kiwi before you ask!

    As a Wesitie I'm fully aware of whats on offer this way as far as rides!...A fantastic place to explore]..perhaps I didnt explain that to begin with?

    I guess my question should have been...anyone out this way wish to ride?? And it would seem a few do [thank you]!

    I have a 2017 Breakout [in the intro section].....just clocked up 16k....and trying to get a service [and rear Tyre this week]....to no avail..in Bris!...thus far!

    Like many, my work hours vary...I'm on call..for Day, Evening or Night Shift 24/7 ...7 Days a week...dont find out the next days roster till 4pm in the arvo ...so plannings a curse!

    And no I'm not a Copper!

    Same said for dating...lol!  [Ladies only btw...lol]

    Be nice to get a group together out this way was my thought??

    Given the comments...I'm sure we could organise something to kick off?...and yes timing is an issue!!!

     Think several of us are in the same boat with odd days/shifts. And don't care if your a copper or not our focus is the common enjoyment of bikes

    Lol. I care that you’re not a copper.....anyhow, I’m happy to sort a ride in the next few weeks and if it suits join in...all welcome. How I roll is this - provide a general ride rundown, meet at North Ippy Caltex.....and go. If you’re there, we’re on.

    Too good a day to waste, home chores in the morning but wouldn't mind a spin up Mt Glorious n around the dam. Short notice but, say, be at North Ipswich Matilda @ 12.30 if interested.
