I really don't want to post this but .... I'm out too! As a result of some trauma a few years ago, I suffered a compression fracture of a vertebra which is not responding to treatment over the last few weeks and it"s giving me hell. At this point in time I plan to meet up with Thunderdownunder at Blaxland then meet with the others at Maccas Richmond. But that's as far as I can go.
After I missed Bingara, I promised myself to give touring away as it's becoming all too painful now and it's time to be serious. So as not to be tempted to continue I'll post the Strom for sale in the next couple of weeks.
Enjoy the ride and camaraderie fellers, wish I was going along as well.

If nearly everyone is meeting at Maccas Richmond to ride the Bells Line of Road, wouldn't it make sense for Thunder to tide over there, too. Then I can pick you up at home, Brian, and take you, by car, to Richmond.

Default Confirm meeting time/place.

I will make the meet at Maccas Richmond but am still in doubt for the overnight part of it

So will someone confirm if it is Maccas Richmond and the time please [or the alternative location].

If I turn up with the camping gear on the bike it means I'm good to go, no gear means just coffee

Default FullThrottle Diner Hartley

I was chatting with Brenda who owns/runs the Full Throttle Diner at Hartley where Lida and I will be waiting about 10ish Saturday Morning and she said to mention she would do a $10 breakfast including coffee or soft drink for V-Strom riders. Worth waiting for! Rod

Saturn, I'm sorry to read that you can't do the ride, but I understand that you must do what's right for your body .
It would be great if we could all have nice meeting together, and as Ron has kindly offered to pick you up, may I suggest that we all meet at Richmond. That way you and Ron will get to see the boys and it will save time (instead of two stops in the one area).
I was thinking of departing Maccas Richmond around 9.30. I'll be there by 8.30 so that gives us plenty of time to chew the fat .
That will put at the Full Throttle Cafe a bit after 10.30 to meet the westerners, and be on time for a counter lunch at the O'Connell pub

Here is a map of the route

I went to the surgeon today. He thinks I may have torn the repair so will need to have surgery again. Now to book for another MRI. If that's happened, it's put me behind by three months.
