Hello, I booked a room for myself at Spuds when we rode through Crookwell the other week, yep Mrs Spud was pretty flexible with any change in times, numbers or dates and her offer of a bacon & eggs breakfast sounded good too.

The caravan park is the only nearest legal camping spot I know of as the Pejar Dam only allows day visits.

Ron if I had the choice between a new lens and my shoulder hitting concrete I would have chosen my shoulder too, shoulders heal, lenses don’t!

Saturn will you and Chops be meeting any Stroms at Richmond Maccas about 9am-ish? Then onto BLR – Darling Causeway – Hartley vale Rd – Pit Stop cafι (on Great western Hwy near Venice caravan park & 200m from Cox River Rd) I am a solo rider for this one; my wife was not keen on being a pillion over the same dirt roads twice in one month.

The smell the roses pace sounds good, its daylight saving and the Crookwell Pub bistro/pizza bar takes dinner orders up until 8pm (sharp)

I'm happy to meet everyone at Richmond Maccas if the preferred ride route is Bells Line of Road. I'll go and take some pix at RAAF Richmond afterwards.

Rod 1: My apologies for not replying earlier to your post re. your lady Lida joining in. Lida is most welcome, I'm sure she will enjoy the weekend away.

Giddy Goanna: (Great name ) Same too with your mate Bruce. He is very welcome, thoughh he can expect me to put a few fingerprints all over his F800GS.
See you all on 24th.

I'm waiting to hear from Thunder as he is planning to ride from Qld and is planning to visit his sister at Penrith South, he is welcome to stay at my place if she doesn't have room. At this point who else wants to meet at Blaxland Maccas? Stretch 49, which place best suits you? Then to meet up at Richmond Maccas then BLoR to the Causway and on.
Gee this is like trying to herd cats.

Richmond Macca's works best for me, and seeing as Chops is camping I should probably keep him company, unless its wet in which case I'll head to Spuds

G'day Muddy. I'm pleased you can make the 24th, good to catch up again. I never got to do the Wattagans with you but maybe soon as I haven't forgotten. Maybe we can persuade Chops to give his old bones some comfort and try a softer bed. I'd camp if I could but those days are gone for me now, perhaps camp in a caravan. As a matter of fact I am to-morrow buying the first materials to build a 16' caravan which will also take a bike along via a rear door. The finance minister doesn't know about it yet but I can hide the unassembled pieces in my garage for long enough for it to be too late for her to complain. (much)
The family had a 6 months trip around Oz in '88 and I've been wanting to do it again ever since.
Interesting times ahead me thinks.
See you 24th, hope Ock can see his way clear too.

Richmond sounds good to me Ron,
I'll adjust the camping situation as we get closer

PS Wardy, I sent you a PM

yes looking forward to it Wardy, not 100% confirmed yet (but should be OK), in the process of replacinging all the fuel lines on the big pumpkin aswell as work and domestic commitments

Here is a copy of my tank bag ride sheet. The google map times per km given for different terrain & dirt sections are always generous, with a list like this on my tank bag to follow roads signs and my nose I rarely look at my GPS or maps (which may explain why I sometimes take a scenic route)

RICHMOND – HARLEY VALE (dirt) – PIT STOP
– 75 KM 1H 15M
PIT STOP – COX RIVER RD (dirt) – LOWTHER – HAMPTON – TARANA
– 55KM 1H
TARANA – OCONNELL – THE LAGOON – MT PANORAMA
– 48KM 1H
MT PANORAMA – TRUNKEY CREEK (dirt) – ABERCROMBIE CAVES (dirt)
– 55 KM 1H
ABERCROMBIE CAVES – TUENA (dirt) – CROOKWELL
– 77KM 1H 10M
CROOKWELL – LAGGAN – WOWAGIN (dirt) – TARALGA
- 38KM 1H
TARALGA – OBERON
– 99KM 1H 30M
OBERON – HAMPTON – BILPIN
– 103KM 1H 35M

Thunder has the new Shinko E-705's fitted, 50K full service complete Panniers on, tent/mattress and blow up Doll strapped on the rearseat and will leave Brisvegas Thursday morning via the NE Hwy to Walcha - then the "Thousand bends" down to the coast for a home cooked meal/ Bed at Mum's (Laurieton). Friday I've got to do the Putty Road (an old friend that road is) and on to South Penrith for a sisterly meal/Mag and bed. Saturday, apparently I'm meeting up with some sort of weird rabble who think a short ride should encompass half of NSW. I'm thinking I'm so looking forward to six days of me time.
The meeting place/ time on Saturday morning is not clear to me but I'll send Wardy my Mobile number and we will work something out Friday Night
