Thanks Chops. I had surgery on 28th August so there is a fair bit of physio to go. It really brings what MotoGP et al riders do to get fixed and back on a bike so soon afterwards into stark reality!

To-morrow, I'll book 8 beds at Spuds with that number being subject to change, a couple either way. I should point out that there is 34kms of good dirt roads. There are a couple of kms of gravel but the tyre tracks should make it easy. There is however, some sections that appeared to be clay based when I last rode there ( in the dry ) almost 1 year ago. In the event of wet weather this may turn road tyres into slicks so I think it prudent to postpone the ride to another day.

Meeting places: My suggestion is, anyone riding from the East or Southeast meet up at Maccas Blaxland then onto the Imperial at Mt Victoria. Those riding from East or Northeast meet at Maccas at Richmond then onto meeting with the others at the Imperial Mt. Victoria which is on the corner of The Causeway. From here we meet those riding from the West ( Giddy Goanna and Ozzy Strom ) at the little restaurant eatery at the bottom of Mt Victoria, Hartley or The Pit Stop. Ozzy, the "Pit Stop", is that at the bottom of Con Rod at Mt Panorama?

Anybody want to change or add to that?
Anymore takers?

Let's hope for good weather and the 'maybe's' can all make it on the day. Don't forget cameras and mobile phones.

Saturn 5 ..... I need a country fix!

PS. Ron,it's a shame the shoulder is still giving you grief. See you at The Mens Shed.

Thanks Saturn, I was going to meet at Bell, but if you're not doing Hartley Vale Rd (off Darling causeway), I suggest Ozzy and I meet others at Imperial Hotel Mt. Vic. (it's only at the top of the hill, less stop/start for others).
I await approx meeting times closer to the date. My mobile is 0402 386 045.
Hey thanks for booking some beds, better than all of us ringing.

I'm excited.

It was getting better but falling down a number of steps onto my shoulder at Darling Harbour last Friday evening has screwed it up. No, I hadn't had a drink and I did save my camera with its brand new 30mm f1.4 lens from smashing onto the concrete.

I'll have brekkie at Blaxland, so I can see Ron. But I wanted do the BLR and Hartley Vale, but what ever. Why can't we all then meet at the Pit Stop (Ace) Cafe, which is 100m north of where Browns Gap Rd meets the Great Western Highway at Hartley.
I'm still going if it's raining and maybe modify the route, and camping at Crookwell CP
See yaz soon

Default Full Throttle Diner

Brendas Full Throttle Diner at Hartley is certainly a good meeting place. Please suggest a time. Thanks. Rod

Hi Saturn 5,

My regular riding partner (Bruce, F800GS) will be joining us.

FYI, I have booked a room for Bruce & I @ Spud Murphy's Inn.
Informed them that I was one of the 8 shared singles that you had booked if she wanted to take that into account regarding numbers. She said didn't matter, she will leave the numbers loose at this stage.

Should be green hills after this heavenly rain.
Cheers all,
Ben.

Default Crookwell O'nighter..

I spoke to Spuds and they are very casual about bookings. I told him we have something like 5 definites and another 5 maybe's. They have 15 rooms ( we may be the only ones there.)

Rod 1: Chops comes from the 'Gong so if we meet at Blaxland Maccas say 8:30 it will be 9:30+, maybe 10 AM, before we get to Hartley as we will go the long way via Bells Line of Road. I'll tighten up times here as we get closer to 24th. The ride is not too long, so it's smell the roses, not a fast ride.
I'm looking forward to the ride and meeting up with the familiar names.
See you there on the 24th

Saturn 5
