February 8-10

The BMW Touring Club of NSW will once again be holding the Karuah River Rally.  All are welcome, it's not necessary to be a club member or ride a BMW (just no cars OK, it's a motorcycle rally).  Location is the Frying Pan Creek campground inside the Chichester State Forest near Dungog NSW (last spot for any supplies).  There is a fabulously well maintained dirt road to the site. There will be basic catering available for Sat night and breakfast is free on Sunday morning(as long as you buy a badge).  BYO Grog.  Final navigation instructions are available at the Bank Hotel in Dungog.

It's a great green site, swimming holes are available, the leeches are very friendly etc.

In the occurrence of an extreme weather event if the Forest is officially closed we may have to move to Dungog showground (it has happened once).

I'll be there Friday pm sometime (it might be in a car as Marie and I may be chauffeuring a downed rider who must get there (he has been to every KRR so he has to be at this one too, yep it's Frank(K1100RS) again, he's broken his left leg, again!))

It's a great way to start the year off, be there if you can. Dog friendly site too!

AL

I will ensure that there is only Bagpipe and Banjo music available for Franks pleasure. It worked so well last time. I'm sure it assisted his leg to heal. 😊

just to reprise this thread

Krr is on my list this year , (especially as i'm 400k closer this time .)


I believe a survey run  has been conducted in preparation... any news Al ?


if you have the vague thought that if any northerners might be attending ...I do have a spare bed in glenn (single only - so far )

im planning an early morning (nsw time ) depart for the rally site ...down the usual route - thunderbolts on Saturday morning


this is all depending on projected heat temperatures  down dungog ways ...if looking over 40 deg c  ...sorry wont be coming …

recently local temps up here have been hot for this locality  with riding temps in the mid 30s ...and not too bad at all ...with the cooling breeze and over night change a welcome relief ….but down in that valley ...who knows !!!

I am hoping to make it but still busy enjoying the Thai "cool season".

I get back to Sydney 6th so if all goes well the K100 will fire up and take me there!

Recon run is mostly just to inform/remind businesses to be ready for our influx. That raised no issues.  Other than that it's a get together.  Long range weather Marie tells me is for 20s-30 with possibility of precipitation.  I also wont be there if its over 40.

Hope to see you there Charlie.

That'll be easy Charlie. Lovett runs the KRR. Will be 'riding' a crewcab LandCruiser to carry supplies from town.
Often seen at the presentation a bit under the weather and rambling about The Who. 😉 There are various BMWs at home.

I've been on many rides with Rob since meeting him in the mid 90's. He's good company.  And he does like a long ride.  I've yet to convince hime about the qualities of K-bikes though, he's firmly in the Boxer camp.

Yes..

But there is the R1200RS, the R1200ST, the R100R Mystic, some other old R series thing, I think an R80GS of sorts as well.  He got the Suzuki for the OCR

Is anyone riding up to Karuah from Sydney? I think I can not get away until Saturday morning.

I am on Northern Beaches planning to ride my K100.
