N.B. This ride was to support local (NSW) fire brigades but has been changed and will now support the Vic appeal.

BIKEBIZ Bikers Back The Bushfire Brigade's Bash
Sunday 8th March 2009.

Meet at McDonalds McGraths Hill (Windsor) at 9:00am for a 10:00am departure.
$20 donation for the ride incl. BBQ lunch at destination (Lithgow Showground).
Another optional $20 buys you a souvenir tee and a raffle tix for this little trailbike.


http://bikebiz.com.au/v2/bushfire-bash-09.php

"We here at BIKEBIZ are proud to announce our seventh annual Bikebiz Bikers Back the Bushfire Brigade Bash as the motorcycling community joins forces once again to raise much needed funds for the Lithgow and District Rural Fire Service.

We're hoping to see hundreds of motorcyclists participate in the ride as we endeavour to raise in excess of $5000 for the day to be donated to a very worthy cause. And now with the addition of a trail ride, we're hoping this will be our biggest year ever!

In addition to the ride, a lively entertainment lineup will greet the riders upon their arrival in Lithgow. And to help raise the much needed funds for the Lithgow and Districts RFS, Yamaha Motor Australia have generously donated a TTR-50 as part of their commitment to the event!! The awesome little TTR-50 will be presented to the winner on the day during the lunch time entertainment. "

Good thing is, this will cater for trailbike riders too with designated bush track fr Mcgarths to Lithgow.
Please register your attendance ONLINE on Bikebiz' website above.

Harry, this may well be an opportunity to meet other Vulcan riders and get a 'card' to them with site details. Your thought?

I would love to come, but I am working in Central Coast at night and won't be back until about 2am.

I wish I could come.

Hi,

Name is Cam and I ride an 08' 900 Custom. Have been looking for a Vulcan club in Sydney for ages now and happy to have stumbled on this group. I am active in the Kawasaki Riders and Owners Network forum (www.auskawasakiriders.com/forum). Unfortunately many members are in QLD and most group ride activity is up there.

I am registered for the Bike Biz bushfire ride and would love to meet up with some people there in a couple of weeks.

Hi Cam,

Welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately I am working Saturday night and will not be home until 2am.

Ed will be there, so you will meet him, I am sure.

He has the same bike as yours, the one on the picture.

Could you please put your details here and we will keep you posted with our rides.

See you soon,

Hi Cam

I registered today + t shirt.

I live at Naremburn, near Crows Nest if you wanted to meet and ride to McGraths Hill as a group. I expect to have others with me. If so, we would be meeting at The Shell servo at Lane Cove on Epping Road.

Harry, I will make up some basic cards to take along and flog your site to Vulcans. Rudy asked me to tell you to come along. You will enjoy it, even if it's later in the morning or for lunch. It's only Lithgow. You don't need sleep.

I plan on leaving Shell servo on Epping Road Lane Cove at 8:00. I also plan on having my mini camcorder on the front of the bike to video it.

Mark Condon, Director of Bikebiz has been good enough to give me an update re the route to be taken on Sunday.

"The road ride is fairly straight forward; it is leaving from
McDonalds at McGraths Hill taking the Windsor bypass then through
Richmond, Kurrajong, Bells onto Lithgow (using the Bells Line of
Road).

Depending on the number of people we have on the ride we will
stop at the Lithgow Council Yard to regroup before heading through the
main street of Lithgow and then turning right into the Showgrounds.

The ride home is left to the individual.

We are expecting Police assistance from McGraths Hill to the start of
the Bell's Line of Road at about Richmond. We are led to believe
that we will also have Police assistance through Lithgow, this is to be
confirmed.

Hope you can join us. We are hoping to raise in excess of $30k for the
Victims of the Vic Fires, so the more people we have attend the more
chance we will have of making a worthwhile contribution.

Also you might want to jump onto our site ( http://bikebiz.com.au/v2/bushfire-bash-09.php ) and check out what we have managed to persuade our Distributors to contribute towards the Lucky
Door Prize.

People will be able to pre register online up until the close of business
Thursday 5th March. After that they will need to register on the day.

Regards,

Mark Condon
Director"

Hi Stew, Cam and Ed.

I will try my best to see you at McGraths Hills Mackers at around 9.

I just rang Peter and David and left a message to see if they can come too. I think if Pete's bike is ready he would love to come too.

I think Steve is working.

See you soon,

Hi Stew, Great to meet you too.

I really like the sound of your pipes. I am thinking of getting them, but I worry if I would bother my neighbours.

I am glad I went even though I was soooooooo tired with only 4 hours sleep.

It was great to meet Cam too.

I was a bit turned off with the ammount of bikes...... I've seen that many bikes on at once before,but it was the first time that I was actually part of it.

I had a good time, more than I thought I would, which was great.

I hope they raise heaps of money for the fire victim.

I am looking forward to the next ride.

The neighbors will be fine, I just try and keep the noise down by going slow up the street or keeping the clutch in when coming back again. I'm sure they will be fine Laughing

Harry, if your not that keen on big groups (I mean mega big ie well over 50), then the Snowy Ride http://www.snowyride.com.au/index.php may not be for you. Imagine today times at least 4. Great experience though and the rides that you can take on the saturday to places like Khancoban, Charlottes Pass, Dalgetty etc are the best.

Had fun today. my pics can be seen @
