Aah shit, you beat me to it!!! I think I know exactly where that is- It's quite close to where i live, actually. I should've got it today, but i decided to do the Nasho instead- down thru the Royal National Park to Wollongong, then up Mt. Kiera. What a lovely day out! The GTS is quite capable of a longer distance, I think I'll ride to Nowra on tuesday...

Wow great ride Fluffy. I am more the urban cowboy on mine, I should venture out for longer rides. I used to when I had motorbikes - many years ago.

It is fairly literal, Google will get you there.

More clues if needed

Ok, have deciphered the clue. Quite the sordid history when you read about it. Not sure when I can make it over there to get the picture though.

Well done Linz.
I went to a lunch and heard Roger Rogerson tell the story of the shooting, very "Underbelly"

And damn, you 250cc are ganging up on me!

I reckon we have enough players now, to meet up for a Sunday lunch

I was going to put up the youtube link, but with the actors not holding back on the swearing and the graphic nature of it , on a predominately US site I thought it may have ticked off the moderators here..

Should you've mentioned this thread on Scooter community and SCSC for more players??

A Sunday lunch sounds good..but I aint doing the roast!!

Here's a bit of an 'arty' shot for the tag thread...




I think I'll call it "All creatures, great and small". What do you reckon? maybe too easy?

I know where...but I'll sit this one out since I did the last one

The 'all creatures' was a reference to the RSPCA around the corner (their Ad)

Was mine too far out of the city?

It was an easy ride out there, some rev head in a WRX beeped me when we hit the 70 zone! The Hume Hwy is a rut ridden road, though eh?

Thank God for that! I was asking my cryptic crossword friends, if a few letters could be missing, in an anagram.
Race you there fluffy!

Got it! I love the long shaddows and the golden glow that the early morning sun casts.

Awesome set of bridges to cruise over, although it's certainly getting a bit chilly early in the morning now.

I was going crazy trying to figure it out. Looked like the architecture of the old Gladesville Mental Hospital, rode all round there but couldnt find the room with the view...then I twigged..."Awesome set of bridges to cruise over"... so Remo must be closer to the city...Maybe Callan Park?


Ward 17 Rozelle Hospital formally known as Callan Park

Pete,

That looks more like a 'Dare'; than a 'tag'

Its easy if youre in the right lane. If youre not it'll cost you $3 to have another go.... Well its going to cost $3 anyway to get back home.

Well done on the old hospital tag Pete. Very quick indeed and no formal clues needed.
New tag looks like a challenge.

Do any of you do the Tuesday’s things with SCSC? I've never ridden with the group but considering coming along.
