Another one for the QLD and Nth NSW contingent.

Daryll the publican at the urbenville pub is holding a dakar party on Jan 7th.

He will have Dakar highlights screening on the big screen TV. Rooms are fully booked but $5 will cover camping out the back and a shower if ya need it.

Darryl also has free GPS downloads of the tracks in the area if you want to explore.

He needs some idea of numbers to arrange catering, so post here if you can make it.

Urbenville is a bike friendly town that could really use our support, so come along buy a beer of ten, a feed and some fuel and everyone is happy.

Saturday loop

McGuyver has promised a re-run of the famous "Ride on Sunday" loop, enroute to Urbenville on Saturday (long way round).

It's reasonably demanding, not the least because it's a bloody long way so you need to keep moving along at a reasonable clip.

I'm wondering how to get my camping gear to Urbenville beforehand so I don't have to lug it around all day, and risk drowning it all in a river.

Dakar weekend

Ensure your plans are flexible as the weather is predicted to be wet:new_shitsmiley:. The Strom will look a bit unusual with flippers and scuba tank.:green_lol:

Brett (or whatever your name is ). Stop being so sensible.....just stop it! :)
Gee Guy this threads gone quiet, you must have frightened a few off.
That infamous judge that said in a court case " sometimes when a woman says no she really means yes" you know he may have been right, cause now Hiew is coming. Our plan is to go down Fri. arvo, set up and head east on sat morning up the cond river rd hopefully come across you high speed chappies somewhere.
A muddy plan at this stage, See ya soon.

Bloke on AdvRiders said he was talking to Darryl the other day and Darryl didn't know anything about this Dakar Night thing.

I messaged BrettStrom1 and he popped into the pub earlier today. Said, "Just went down and the ladies at the pub weren't sure what was happening. The accommodation is fully booked out so I left a message for Darryl to ring me."

Last post on their facebook page is Dec 10. I think Mrs Darryl (Amanda) is currently in hospital. She may be the organising brains ....

We shall see.

Dakar not on at Urbenville 7th January

As I have also just PM SuzyStrom re the 7th it aint on as far as the publican knows. The accommodation is booked out by another group of road riders. The Dakar is not actually on until Sunday 15th January when I believed it will be televised.

Not sure who fu____d up, someone has loose communication.

Cheers

Spoke to Homer this morning. He is adamanat that it is on, although he did sound a bit vague.

Regardless we are going anyway. Meet at Caltex Beaudesert at 8 am. Ride will basically be a repeat of what we did the other weekend.

If it turns out that we cant camp at the pub we can always camp at Bretts (or whatver his name is) Place.....hello Brett you there??? Brett? Where did he go?????:biggrinjester:

Let me know if your coming.

One More...

Mark, one of my workmates will be coming on either his 660Tenere or XR400, he hasn't decided which yet. He will be heading out with the gravelly guys from Beaudesert, Howard and I will head down the tar and score the best tent sites, and then go and explore some local roads. :thumbup:

Pete.
