    To say im dissapointed with the Vic turn out is an understatement. We wanted to bring the meet here but with a turn out like this it will never happen.
    Anyway im leaving my workshop Thursday arvo. Im staying overnight somewhere near Bairnsdale and continue on to Merimbula in the morning. Anyone need anything carried up my wife will be driving up in our Ranger so she can carry luggage for you. It needs to be at my place or the workshop before thursday. See you all up there. Those who arent coming.....SUCKS TO BE YOU.

    I think Hop and Disco are the last surviving active members on the forum that own and prefer to ride a 9 in VIC..... Bit hard for some Vic members to bother to attend when they make an effort to be active on here and get donuts in return. Probably explains the lack of enthusiasm and piss poor turn out.:dontknow:......... Might have to join the Facebook page....Hmmm might have to join facebook first...:p

    I thought you were down as coming? Put your skirt on mate mines 2600 km round trip.

    Few Queenslanders doing even more then that.

    It’s not like we all didn’t have time to plan it.

    I reckon people just make up bullshit excuses.

    And I don’t even own a 9 lol

    Shhhhhhit .....Ross had to kneecap his misses to pull out

    As you said..... it is what it is.

    Don’t bother. The shop closed down five years ago.
    Frame it and hang it on the wall.

    Here's some questions...

    How many registered Vic members are there?

    How many ACTIVE Vic members are there on here?

    When was the last time a Vic ride was posted and supported? We see pictures of individual and small group rides, but never posted as an open invitation.

    Understand there's always times when we like to do our own thing and have time to ourselves.

    There's been more dinner catchups posted in the Vic section over the last year than rides. (and before anyone comments, a few of us have posted before and zero turn out or lack of interest).

    Also, those of us here that no longer own a boulevard, turning up to a "national boulevard" meet without having one, feels kinda weird.

    I'm coming only because i booked in ages ago for it. If i didn't make myself book in i wouldn't be going. But, we are, and I'm looking forward to it. I think the last time i rode with anyone from here was about 6 months or so ago when we went to Turtans track. 99% of my riding is last minute spur of the moment stuff when i find i have a couple of hours off unexpectedly. So it's usually only about 90 minutes of riding total which doesn't let you go far.
