Crookwell o'nighter

Following on to M.L.'s thread, I propose an o'nighter on Saturday Nov. 24th and Sunday 25th. V-Chops P.M.ed me with a map he thought would fit and it is exactly what I had in mind.
Don would you post that map up here for those who don't know the area?

I'm away from the computer till next Monday. Anybody wanting to join in can indicate so here, even if they cannot be definite at this point in time. Accommodation will be organised in the coming weeks I'm sure there will be a suitable spot for those who want to camp somewhere close to town. I'll probably need a real bed although I'd love to camp.

I'm meeting my brother at Temora this weekend to watch the air display. The old Sabre will be among those flying. Back on Monday.

Thats all right Wardy, you go off with your head in the clouds, we''ll do the orginisin' for ya
Here's the proposed route, changes can be made if anybody has better plans

A few months ago I stayed at the Crookwell Hotel/Motel. Good beer, big menu and the room was ok for the money, undercover parking if you beat the locals

I'll let you know closer to the date. It depends on how my shoulder is recovering from the surgery (6 weeks ago) and if the surgeon will let me ride.

I'm a "definite maybe".
Work every weekend.

If I'm on afternoon shifts, I may wangle Saturday off, joining the group at intersection of Cox's River road and Gt. Western Hwy.
Otherwise may join group till Bathurst then work.

I will say a possible yes for this one.

Brian, what are you planning to ride?

Maybe I could lend you the KLE and I will take my Wee.

Or if you are taking the Honda I will take the KLE [we can both be the "slow" ones then ]

I keep wanting to do a camping run on the bike, but pub would be ok for this one.
