After a Five day "Overnighter" to Crookwell to buy Wardy a Beer, I guess my Numb ASS could be refreshed with another 600K short trip.
COUNT ME IN
Thunderdowner just tying to break the 60,000k/year Touring barrier. (Damn you V-Man and Gotawee)

Hey dont blame me,it was Gotawee who took you on a 650k joy ride last sunday,mind you I am spewing I missed it. Yeah she does like to ride but it really isnt a good idea to call her an"Stupid woman" when you both have a scala...LMFAO
Are you sure you can make it all the way to Crookwell? I mean to say only 650k's...whos the old woman

Default room for one more?

Hi,

Would love to ride up from our place in Elands, if there's anyone else planning on carving through the NSW countryside maybe we could hook up?

New to the Strom, bought a DL1000 about 2 months ago, must go dig out a tent...

Glad you can make it, Dean.

wobbly_boot, 230Rocket, Strongarm (Ian) are coming up from down South, though different places. Maybe you can meet up with them somewhere.

For all the Maybes out there: now is the time to come for all good VStrommers to come to the aid of the party and make a decision please - helps catering and planning.

Of course, if circumstances dictate and you can't say yay or nay yet, you're still welcome to bowl up at the last minute, but if you can RSVP now it is a help.

And if you know anyone on the "Waiting to hear from" list please get in touch with them and invite them to come.

I've yet to decide which way I'll head up as I have my Parents living in Grafton and My Sister and her mob living out around Bundarra and would like to see them all before Xmas.Might also call into my Aunt's in GI for her famous scones
I was kinda planning to go From Newcastle via Gloucestor, Walcha thru Uralla and up to Bundarra on Thunderbolt's way...then after a night or two with Sister & her mob, go back through to Armidale then to the back road to Grafton via Nymboida but I've been told that road is pretty chopped up (anyone with current reports on this road?) then after a night or two at the Oldie's place, I'll head up through Copmanhurst, Fineflower, Baryugil to the bruxner and head up to Urbenville via Bonalbo.....I'll worry about the way back when I get there but may probably come back the same way.
My main worry at this moment is bike luggage....usually I just pack up my andy strapz A bag accross the seat infront of my top box but am now unsure how I will go also strapping my tent, sleeping bag and self infl. mattress as I have no panniers yet. I may have to quickly invest in some soft expedition bags and racks from A. Strapz so if I can get my clothes and stuff in them, I can place my sleeping bag and mattress in the A bag (I hope) and the tent tied ontop of the A bag. Jeez free camping adds so much extra gear doesn't it

Cheers

wobbly & others in same predicament - If anyone's taking a car from Gold Coast I can loan 2 tents and 2 sleeping bags to save you carrying stuff. Don't have spare mattresses though.

So, the questions are:
anyone taking a car from GC?
if so, wobbly, wanna borrow a tent and sleeping bag?

Thanks for your offer Steve but I'm gunna try to overcome this problem even if it means buying a set of panniers from Andy Strapz....I s'pose it'll be a good opportunity to set my Wee up for free camping on other trips as well as the longer pub jobs.
So Santa...I really have been a good boy this year....worked hard...blah blah blah....can you bring me a set of panniers for my Wee-strom a bit earlier than expected....please please pretty please

cheers
