Melbourne / Vic get together

Post by Mark36 » Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:51 pm

I'm just new here and it seems to me it may be time to get some Victorians (and any other members of course)in the shed or on the road or both. I think Rick may be posting something soon so I'm not out to steal his thunder but if everybody puts on their thinking caps and posts at least one idea here then maybe we can come up with something that will appeal to a few and maybe we can get it up and running . As it is already April the cooler weather is coming so it would be nice to make something happen soon. If you do put an idea up then perhaps you could list a couple of dates you are available as well. Some of the obvious are: shed days, meet and greet at a central pub/cafe etc, actual ride for a day, overnight ride etc. if you are interested in one of these then post a comment, if you have a better idea then post that. If your location is not on your profile then add that in your comment so we can maybe tailor something geographically to suit those who are interested . I hope I have put this in the right section of the forum and am not stepping on anyone's toes but at least if anyone wants to tell me to pull my head in then it will give us all something to read :D

G'day Fluffer, Thanks for the quick response mate! Which weekend/s are you available? Saturday or Sunday better? Do you prefer shed day, meet and greet, short ride or something better? By the way, have I read it right that you are bootin' off to the mutha country soon? If thats the case hopefully some of the Vics will come out to play even if it's just to say see ya later. I don't know how to "PM" people or even who to "PM" so hopefully a few will read this during the week and show a bit of interest 8)

Aaaaaaaaaah.. the thing about bein an old retitred pensioner is that every day is a weekend for me so i have to fit in with other folks who actually have commitments around which they have to fit their leisure activities..

That said, I'm outta here on the 24th May and have sold everything that moves including my house. As such I wouldn't say no to anything involving a cruise on the bike before that too is sold...

Think nothing of it.

Aaah Cromag, there is tear of joy running down my cheek as I realise the sacrifices that blokes like you are prepared to make for blokes like me..

It warms the cockles of me heart that ya would perform such a remarkable act of kindness for me...

Would it be fair ta say that as part of this magnificent service you would also lovingly warm my baby up on a regular basis and just to make sure the leather didn't dry out to much, would you also sit on it once or twice a day....

And I guess it would be churlish of me not suggest that you should take my baby to the pub on a regular basis so that other people could revel in the wondertment of the bike and your sacrifice...

Aaaaaaah, gotta go now and have a little weep of joy at the thought of your sacrifice...

Noblesse oblige et al.....

Hey Fluffer, no takers yet but if you're still up for it and still have your bike maybe we can pencil in a date and see what happens. I've got a sneaking suspicion there may be a couple of extra takers for Sunday 28th of April, how's that for you?

Aaaaaaaah.

All these wonderful blokes willin' ta babysit my luvly FXR while I venture orf to the wilds of Yorkshire (swingin' me piff helmet with a stiff upper lip).

Pygmy: True, all pensioners are not the same, there's ones like me: charming, erudite, tall, good looking and quietly modest.
And then there's one's like you...blokes like you are the reason blokes like me lock up their daughters or anything else that can be ridden into the ground by a
post-pubescant hoon...

No mate, my little FXR is gunna remain pure, virginal and unsullied by evil little hands like yours. :lol: :lol:

Hey Fluffer, it seems the enthusiasm from others is somewhat lacking and with your pending departure some decisive action may be required.The weather looks good for this Saturday if ya keen,it may end up just two of us but at least you'll get out before ya go ?

Me... I'm still puzzling over how it is that Fluffer is retiring. I mean as all and sundry (sundry being those NSW guys met at Bombala) who have met him can attest, while it is obvious that Fluffer looks much older than me, I am pretty sure he is in fact a fair bit younger. So how is it he is retiring????????
That's just wrong on so many levels!

I am out of town this weekend and every other weekend after this one. So if someone wants to put up a date, let's see if we can't send the old codger off right and proper.

Mark: The way things are shaping up around here it looks like it is this saturday or nothing, so i was thinking of a ride up the front and down the back (spur) but I'm open ta suggestions..

Rick: Aaaah Rick my boy, come and sit on Fluffies knee and i will tell ya a story (a true story at that)...

A long, long time ago in the kingdom of Oz, a handsome knight by the name of Sir Fluff rode around in his white charger (VJ) ridding the country of alcohol (by consumption) and virgins (by consumption) until the evil hunchbacked prince offered Sir Fluff a job in his counting house.

However, Sir Fluff was really, really bad at his job. So bad that the princes minions decided it would be easier and cheaper to pay Sir Fluff to stay home drinking beer, sleeping late and cuddling naked women (well 1 naked woman).

Ans so it was that peace once again settled on the kingdom and indeeed as you may have guessed "They all lived happily ever after"

The End

Truer story ......

After Sir Fluff was appointed to the position, there was an uprising within the Kingdom. The drinking houses all complained because they were losing their customers due to the constant intolerable behaviour of one particular customer (Sir Fluff); any virgins who were left in the kingdom (after Sir Tex had deflowered most of them) also complained that due to his constant state in intoxication, Sir Fluff could not "complete the deed". And so it came to pass that the prince decided that it was far easier to pension the poor old buggger off, pay him his "redundant" money and send him back to the Old Dart (from whence he came), in order that he may rest his weary bones and recuperate and hopefully regain his drinking, deflowering and fast riding skills, in the forlorn hope that, one day, he would return and once again be able to join the Merry Band of Northerners on their legendary ongoing conquests throughout the Kingdom.
