    Got the word that TIM S G was organising a ride today so I thought I'd join in. The very popular 6 ferry trip.
    Took the Ultra and met up with Tim and Linda SG on their SG, Graz on his SG, Ash (Softail06) on his soft tail, Ralphski on his turbo Vrod at the BP at Mt Barker. Ralphsky there to pass on his christmas wishes only. The trip on the freeway was wet and miserable but with a forecast of early showers, then fine and 28, figured the weather wouldn't last. Headed off through the hills to Wellington where we crossed ferry 1, on to Tailem Bend and crossed back at Ferry 2. There to Murray bridge and Mannum where we met AndyK on his soft tail and a friend of Tim's on his new BMW.  Still damp. Had a great meal on the deck of the Pretoria Hotel overlooking the river. Graz had plans and headed off another way. Eric did too. Tim, Andy, Ash and I crossed the river at ferry 3, followed the river to Purnong Landing and crossed the river at Ferry 4. From there to Walker Flat ferry 5 to Swan Reach ferry 6 with the skies overcast but dry. Linda took some great pics as we had a bike procession to Sedan. Up over the hill to Keyneton, Eden Valley and a final drink and farewell at Mt Pleasant. From there to our respective homes. Total distance around 400kms of fantastic scenery on a variety of roads. The convey of 3 tourers and 2 soft tails was ably led by Tim so I knew we were in safe hands. Thanks folks for the invite.

    Tip: Don't carry too much, phones, keys and the like in your jacket pocket. It can make you look fat. :-)

    Some good shots there Tim. Photos of riders on bikes in full flight are always so much better.

    Funny thing. I'd been humming that song Don't Pay The Ferryman all morning. Perhaps I was there in spirit. 
    Great action pics. Thanks for sharing.
