Default Aussie Victory Birthday Ride

WOW!...What a day!...up at 5.30am for a 7am leave to ride 100kms north to the Brisbane Victory Indian Dealership for 4th July ride.
Which we actually had today being the fifth but the fourth in the USA.
We're a day ahead see
OK arrived 8.15 for an 8.30 leave, When everyone was assembled I asked to say a few words and told everyone a bit of history on the V92C unveiling on 4/7/98 and offered a few words of thanks to the blokes at the dealership who organise these shop rides and such.
They do a great job, we must have the bestest dealership/workshop in the whole world I reckon!
Rode to Woodford Bakery first then further north via some great mountain roads with a few nice straights thrown in to blow the cobwebs out!
Ended up at Ricks Diner in a little town called Palmwoods behind the Sunshine Coast ...Amazing joint packed to the rafters with memorabilia, and people everywhere...big lineup for food and it was worth the wait.
Victory covered the first $20 of everyones order too
Pretty late here now as I one finger type this after 14 hours in the saddle so Im gonna upload a few pix and leave it at that.
Happy Birthday Victory...heres to many more!

Sounds like a good time! Looks like there were some nice bikes there too. Any idea how many bikes showed up to the ride?

The panorama shot outside the diner shows most of the bikes plus there were half a dozen across the road that got there later after a corner marker failed to stay put till tail end charlie came past.
They arrived later, I'm on my phone replying so theyre to small to count but I'd guess 25 or so all up, maybe more.
Im still buzzing from it, great to have biker cameraderie without all the bullshit, all the 'bro' and 'scooter' talk.

You do have a great dealership. Nothing like that around here and never an attempt, most of the dealers are too busy selling 4-wheelers, can-ams, and jet skis to worry about doing an event like that. The exception was our new Indian/Victory/Slingshot dealership that opened up here a few weeks ago. They had a big ride planned for last Saturday so I show up hoping to see some cool Vics and Indians but like usual I was the only Vic in the parking lot besides those for sale. It rained on and off so they cancelled the ride but failed to come out and tell all of us sitting on the outside patio waiting to gather up and ride. Really pissed off myself and the other dozen or so riders . Very unorganized and the owner/managers just didn't seem to care.
