Thumbs up Australia - BDR National 1 Day Ride

Just wondering if anyone here is partaking in this years National Black Dog Ride to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention?

They are looking to beat last years record and get 1,300+ black dogs on motorbikes in one day all around Australia.

I have signed up for the March 24th Canberra to Batemans Bay ride with my dad and am really looking forward to it.

Keep an eye out for a guy in a .net hoodie under his leathers

This ride was amazing, over 250+ black dog riders and over $10,000 raised for charity; no spills and no tickets.

For those who could not attend (probably everyone here as I was the only 600rr...) I have a few pictures to help you pretend that your day was as cool as mine.

First, the bikes:

Just about everything and anything...

Bastards!!!:

Had never seen the DB8 in person until today:

Not that many, however there was the occational Harley:

This crazy Russain woman in a Ural was crazy...

Another bastard!:

There was also a nice V6 valkyrie, but I never managed to get a photo of that :/

Eeww a Kawi... but the guy who owns this was a pretty top bloke, donated $800:

I still dont know what this is...:

Like the 1198's, this thing sounds horrible while idling!! damn fine when its going though:

And lastly, my baby:

Next, the ride:

Started in Canberra, ended at Lyons oval in Batemans Bay:

The famed Clyde Mountain was part of the route:

The best corner, without a doubt:

Braidwood Stop:

Batemans Bay:

My Black Dog Winston!!!!! loved it how his little tail wagged in the wind:

mmmmhhhmmmm:



I totally have to get a mounted camera for the next one!
