I turned up at the Coffee Club in Park Rd for my first Brisbane Bikers ride today, met a whole bunch of interesting people and saw heaps of very cool machinery The BB crowd looks like a pretty decent mob and I'll probably aim to go on at least a couple of rides with them over the next couple of months.

We left the Coffee Club and headed out along the Warrego Highway. I think it was supposed to be a learner-friendly ride, which explains why we didn't go via Mt Glorious, but I was still a bit disapppointed However, after a brief drink stop at Fernvale, things livened up a bit when we turning onto the Somerset-Kilcoy Road.

Two of the guys, Stuart ('03 ZX-12R) and some guy whose name I can't remember ('98 R1) took off and I thought I'd have a go at keeping up with them. As it turned out, I didn't have that much trouble at all, which was a pleasant surprise for me and hopefully a slight scare for them I'm wondering if the ZX-12 had been properly run in yet, though ;)
