    Yes folks it's on again this time on the 13th, 14th and 15th September at Bretti Reserve just north of Gloucester (NSW of course).

    Who's going? I believe there will there will be a possibility or two from the west coast...

    Richard is planning on it if his Norge suspension linkage is fixed in time. Dunno, maybe he'll bring he mashed Bellagio?

    Anyway, I'll be there if the weather looks fine and I'm not snowed under when I get back. I have to say I have a bit of an issue with the NSW club. I've done on-the spot tune ups, fixed people's bikes with problems and given lots of shit as door prizes at this rally and not one recipient of this largesse has ever even bought an oil filter or gasket off me. I've also ordered bits for people in the NSW club and they've either never picked up or I've trusted them and the. I've not been paid.

    It gets old after a while.

    Well, Mister Roper
    If you don't want to go to Bretti Reserve you could always come and sink a few
    coldies with me in Mandello del Lario at Café Rosa Elefante.
    We're heading or for the Mandello Guzzi Club rally 13th,14th,15th sept.

    Superflee,just remember there are always 2 sides to the story.
    What happens outside of a club meeting is of no connection to the other members,
    With any transaction between the bike owner and Pete it is between those 2 people only,the club has nothing to do with it. We don't even know if they are a member.

    Whilst I am friends with Pete and wish to remain so,he should really name and shame them.

    S'not the whole club Brett but there is the 'Old School' for whom all dealers are bastards and nothing is ever cheap enough. I'm just over it. Its the reason I no longer work on anything over ten years old unless I know the person well.

    Name and shame? What's the point? When someone stiffs you on payment and then steals your tools while your back is turned its highly unlikely they are going to care if they're called out on it.

    If the weather looks good I may come up.i'll probably stay in Gloucester though. My back doesn't like sleeping on the ground much any more.

    Tony,

    Hopefully there will be plenty of people to have a beer with.

    For those that don't know this is the NSW Guzzi Owners club rally on the upcoming weekend 13,14 &15 Sept.
    The location is Bretti reserve about 30km from Gloucester on Thunderbolts Way heading towards Walcha.
    Some great roads getting to and from this site.

    Pizza guy selling lunch and dinner on Saturday and there will be breakfast available on Sunday morning.
    You will need to bring you own booze but it is a nice location to camp with plenty of open space.
    There will be a number of good trophies and raffle prizes and there will be some organised activities on Saturday afternoon.

    Hope there is a good rollup.

    Mark

    Charlie, I think you are looking a bit sick - better call into work and let them know...

    I'll be there on Saturday morning but will be staying in town that night. No camping gear because i forgot to dry it out after the last rally :oops:

    Hey Brett, make sure you have plenty of XXL Tshirts please. You always seem to be sold out by the time i get there :(
