ok ...lets start to clarify ...who in fact is comming on the venture

i mean. just who in fact intends on getting to neranderra

there will be a few heading out of "k"weensland, my suspicion is that could be thursday with a stop over at guyra on the way ?

in fact i dont think we have had a comment from any of our "way down southern" friends in victoria or further south and west

this might give others a clue to who they might be able connect up with ...if not thursday , friday ,or i guess saturday ...and where along the path they could maybe connect up ....beats riding alone

so ill start off ...you know the drill ....copy and paste your name and planned leave day



Charlie 99 ...... thursday (at the moment)

If you are planning to go to the zoo then be warning they don't let motorcycles do the trip around thanks to the zoobs with loud exhausts. They may have changed but will pay to find out.

You two head north, us two head south and just before we crash into each other we all head west.

I have not travelled these roads since the early 80s so I have taken Ullrichs route and googled it up.
Now RT said Ulli is the only guy he knows who can cross the Great Divide 7 times on the way home from Queensland. Based on his suggested route I believe RT.
At the moment I don't have the luxury of leaving on the Thursday so while Ullrich's route is enticing he may have to travel it without me/ us.
Check it out everyone and see what where when and how we can meet somewhere along the way.

Ullrich's Route

ps. This route starts near my house and not Maitland, but you knew that yeah?

Click the following if you like, but just having a play with google and if I find a good route I don't want to lose it.

Ross' Alt one

So where is a place that is convenient for NSW Vic to meet? Cooma ish?

According to my map Cooma is 420 from Sydney.
Add a bit to that to get out of town and find a pub for the night.
Then the second leg is 500km to Narrandera. A long way round, but not as far as Ullrich, but he has an extra day up his sleeve.

Cooma is a long way from Melbourne 600 ish up the Princes Highway and those stupid hills get in between anywhere and a direct route.
Think about it. Only 4 weeks to go.

seems a lot of KM's but I have taken Friday and Monday off....but I am nothing if not flexible.....went to bega from Newcastle once...fell off at Mclouds hill just north of Bega, where my FJ1100 met its maker...I would really like to avoid reenacting this but the roads to there are amazing and the pubs excellent....just saying.
But i am sure wherever we stop we will enjoy the beer and the company......

To meet Andyb and Halo we need to get a bit either closer to Victoria (shudder) or westerer than Cooma before heading north west.

Would be easier to meet Halo and Andyb on route on Saturday, but Andyb is a bit of an unknown quantity so far and Halo might be in trouble if they spend a night alone together affraid

I mean the rest of us are all okokokokok ..damn the nervous tic okokok bottom bosom arm pit sniff sniff...and the turrets.. pretty well normal well rounded folks who enjoy a ride and a quiet 7oz of low carb low alcohol amber fluid shandy with a twist.

Just saying

Rosco, I assure you, I'm not a mass murderer!
I do like to have a few beers, then after need spirits (read sugar hit) to keep me going..........
But I agree, going around the hills to the east from Melbourne is a big day, I recently did Melb to Dalmeny on the NSW coast in 8-1/2 hours, and was fair knackered, although it was 35c.
I'll go with the flow.

Stick up a link to a map where you will be coming from. That way we can work it out a bit better.
Klompy and I are lucky in that he pretty well has to come past my house so where we head from there is not a problem.
Wonder if a Thursday leave might help? Probably stretching it.

Some options for us Mexicans.......

Melb - boring - Bairnsdale (getting fun) - Orbost (getting much more funner) - Delegate (about 20k's of good dirt app.) - Cooma (all fun!)
http://goo.gl/maps/WXueA

.......Or Via Cann River

http://goo.gl/maps/o6Ma4

or the the backway past Mansfield - Whitfield - Wangaratta - Tallangatta etc (bit longer but nice too!)

http://goo.gl/maps/eZI6I

Any way would be a full days ride, but it'd be up in some country I've never done so would be great to do!
Spoke with Halo, we agreed we're both happy for a long ride, if we can avoid as much boring stuff as possible!

As nice as the coast road is Mr K it seems if we don't head inland from the start it is going to be harder to meet up with Hamish and Andy anywhere half decent.

With that in mind and Seans Omeo idea how about Hamish and Andy 544km 7h30m
Omeo is out due to dirt.

Ferntree Gully Cooma
Ferntree Gully Cooma 595km

Mr K & rossco 628km 9h
or
Windsor Bega Cooma meet Hamish and Andy and ride to Khankoban
Windsor Cooma 558km
Cooma Khankoban 170km

Khankoban Narrandera 343km

Not trying to make this harder than it should be but that big hill down south is getting in the way.

I am also looking at Monday off so maybe a trip back through West Wyalong - Forbes - Orange may be in order.

As far as I can see on google maps the route from Omeo that Sean suggested is all dirt..................a little too much for me,
shame though as it would be a nice way to go..............the road up to Omeo is a great ride.

We need a few more names on the list.
Pretty sure there are more than those listed who will be attending.
It will help with organising who is going where and when and with whom.
I am being a bit of a forum demon Twisted Evil and sending out pms to those who said yes but are not on the list.
Aisnjac?
Sakson and bella
RT? (he told me he is coming. Just want to see names)
Basic/2?
Mozza?
Larry Kin?

Ha! Purse carrying nancy boys ! The road from Bairnsdale up is some of the best scratcher's road you'll see....kilometre after kilometre of twisties...then about 60km of dirt. Fantastic scenery...lovely looking streams filled with trout... :cyclops:

Hi Jim,
We have just been over the Omeo Hwy and back Just 2 weeks ago,they are working on the road from both ends and there is now only 20 klms. of dirt road,and 9 klms in the middle is the old road all the rest has been made wider and was fairly smooth but a bit dusty.It will be fully sealed by mid March next year.We had no problems,just take it easy and enjoy.

Hi Klomy when you click on the link symbol and the little box comes up with the link, just above the link is a little check box - short URL, tick it!

I am sure no matter which lovely little country town we grace with our presents they will be happy to see the back of us.......yep been to quenbeyan and can understand your reticence.now it's only 4.5 hours to wagga from home but no corners and correct me if I am wrong it snows in Cooma which would be ironic given our American and European friends are only now coming out of hibernation and they could giggle at us "slip sliding away" anyhow as they say on the boards "lead on Macduff "

Klompy,

We are indeed looking at summer and nice weather, but you know we had some good runs in October which is same as your April, although we would very rarely see snow in either month but frost is always an option.

What is particularly nice is to read of the exploits down under in your summer while we make do with wet and cold winter and occasional good day rideouts like we got here on 29th December....and 16th March [which I missed].

A good time for doing the essential maintenance. But what is really good is that although most of us have the K in common we also seem to have a lot more in common as well- very sociable Knutheads?

Yep 92KK...can I call you 92?..it is so much more personal....I agree that although we all have a common love the K, that we may have something else that that makes us all feel at home or in good company and have you noticed that in any other gathering there is always one who is an asshole that makes you want to leave the group...as far as I can tell we do not have one of those..( please tell me it is not me)..I taught aircraft maintenance for many years and every class would show its dickhead within 20 minutes and although it goes against all logic you/we are all kindred spirits and I enjoy your company...even more so over a beer and a steak...roll on the next get together.

aye indeed mr k ...my sentiments exactly and was great the see the fantastic exploits of our irish friends so far 92 and all

the common bond is strong ..with a lot of us ...

personally i thank ulrick grabau for the start of the aussie expeditions ...and the comeradery of fellow souls, who have made an effort to get out and about ...and meet some of the "not so weird" bmw guys around the place

looking forward immensly to the next trip and meet

it is trully a bonus to ride with others on the same old girls ...and be proud all the way ...its not how finished the old bird looks ...its in the effort and friendship ... crikey i remember we had a real surprise when a dude joined in unannounced and unknown to any ...at areluen ...(ghost who rides ) wow what an effort ...he knew the names ...and i could see the smile as he associated the faces ...

it is trully amazing

good on you all ...cheers

now, to nut out a good path south to meet with all you guys

like this ?....Rossco how is that?...
http://goo.gl/maps/dTf7F
and by the way had a look at HALO's bike today it was a little tight in the hip joints for me....But by and large a very good price given the potential...it is in very good mechanical condition but surface corrosion in areas as well as some work required in the paint/plastic department...and as I alluded to this would be horrid around town until such time as the wind takes the weight of your wrists etc but perfect as a scratcher or showoff opportunity perhaps would be ok over long distance but there is only one position.....now this beauty is technically sold but will not know whom until Tuesday...there is no reserve and the ABS works!!!!

Mate, you'll die of boredom on that route...that's freeway all the way. Go to Bathurst then down through Cowra etc.

Good thinking Sean, that is a nice run, I'd go via Oberon and meet you somewhere around Bathurst/Orange or even Cowra. That's the way I was going roughly anyway. The worst part would be the run over Katoomba etc, so much road work.

If no-one is coming through Guyra, then Bella and I might leave a day or two earlier and go south to Newcastle, then down the Putty rd to Windsor, annoy Klompy and then tag along. Smile

Still not decided down here.
We can go the boring fast way to Tangalrangatata and meet Ullrich on Friday night or go the funnerer windy longer route and probably get as far as Khankoban and meet Hamish and Andy.

Chime in here RT and let us know your preference.
Waz must have a preference too.

We know what Sakkson thinks. Highway? Yawn.

With a bit of highway to Goulburn and back roads Braidwood to Cooma, we can do Khankoban in 600km Tallangatta is another 90 minutes on that.
We are meeting RT at Robertson/ Mittagong Highway bit I am assuming so the run to Goulburn on the highway is only 90km and we really have no choice but to go Highway to RT's anyway.

All times are Google times so they could probably be reduced by a decent amount.

Yes, generally there are plenty of options, but to meet RT and Waz at a reasonable time we are probably stuck to main roads for that part of the trip.
After Goulburn we can turn off the multi lanes and while still highways they are less travelled and more interesting.
