Unfortunately I'm going to have to give the Narrandera run a miss as I have a couple of clashes with dates. Disappointing, but always another time.

Dissapointing but there will be another, Bathurst in September for the 30th anniversary of the Brick and Ulrich was suggesting Jyndabine or somewhere like that for next year.

I am the worlds best procrastinator so am still thinking about what to do. I don't feel like a 600 klm straight out jaunt to Kancobahn but can't get away Thursday to tag Rickmeister. Meantime the bike is in 100 pieces, think I may have stripped a bolt on the crankcase cover doing it up, can't tell until I get it back together and go for a ride.

If you have get a helicoil kit for 6mm and do it yourself. It's quite easy.

It might sound a bit daft RT, but why not break the trip up on the Friday?

If you left home at the same time as Mr K and myself we could meet you on the road at some determined spot and you would have had over an hours break from riding.
Might be just enough time out to allow a 600km ride.
True, depending on the meeting point it would be a solo ride for a good part, but it will get you a long way down the road ahead of us and time to digest some sauerkraut and kranski.

Just a thought.

While the Friday ride will be around 600km the trip to Narrandera is only about 450ish even going the long way.

I can bring my 10mm socket down if needed before hand.

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

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!

Howdy Halo.................just to refresh your memory!!

For our British friends I thought I would post this.

So I have been having a bit of a chat to Alheng and thought it would be good if he came along to Narrandera.
I wonder how far that really is?
Take the exit 650m
Turn left 535km
Turn right 165km
Turn left 1,198km
Turn left 1.0km
Continue 222km
blah blah blah 3,734km

See you on the 4th mate.
Better leave now.

Plenty of time for the details Saxkxson.

Can you get to Sydney by Thursday night? You can stay here. I know it is a few hours further than Newcastle but if you wanted to catch us on Friday you may have to leave quite early on Friday morn.

At this stage Bella and I will leave Guyra on Chewsdee and go to Newcastle, there visiting my old mate Karl who dropped his Bonnie and broke an arm. ( Told him we don't bounce when we get older) On Thursday I will meet up with Ulli Grabau and his mad mates and head down the Putty rd. At the third bend, when they leave me for dead, I will then ride on in the lovely autumn sunshine we are going to have and make my way ever southward in the hope of catching up eventually with them and RT and others....etc etc ad infinitum.
Sane.

ok alby ....lets see what we can do .. i can probably make warwick by 7.00 ish (thursday ) if pushed (sorry i get excited on the start of these planned ventures ) is that what you had thought or should i head up the hill wednesday night ...for an early start thursday .......now now ...not that 4.00am stuff old mate

do i need to send some tiedowns and a muffler for poor old nicki on the back ...it would be crewl to put her through that ....um unless we can come up with some form of diversion therapy

perhaps we should plan some sort of game on the way down ???

if i could id buy that other bluetooth thingy from rossko ...and stream some awsome tunes over the "k" local southbound eithernet ...might help with the boredom factor ....

i guess i better get that usb charger installed on old gerty ....just in case ....its an awfull long ways from brisbane to bega ...then west to cooma ....that over the hills "alpine track" sounds cool though

do you think we could make sydney on the thursday ? or sparrow fart 5.00am leave from near singleton to hit windsor about 7 ish then connect up with klompy

just wondering what the overnight stopover for the sydney guys on friday was ....did i miss something ? or is it a place ive never heard of ?

cheers to all

thanks rossko ...just hoping its tent friendly ...this extended trip will be ...an "economical " travell experience till we hit neranderra pub ... grin

but riding as a group is fantastic ...should be enchoraged more often

i dont mean like the "hog's " but in a safe and distanced manner that we have experienced on quite a few of our travels in the past .... (insert pic of trip to bundara here ) with the sensible "k"weensland members and friends

If you make it as far as castle hill you can all stay here.

4 mins to start of M7 and black tar bliss boredom till we can get off and see a bit of country

I left Seans at 8.30 and was at my place by 4 and that was a casual ride.

wednesday night leave from brissy sounds sensible to me right now ..allows for a comfortable leave from warwick and not to many ks before heads down thursday

where ever that might be


oh !!!...just though to ask at this time if any other banana benders were thinking of joining in .....this might change the dynamics of leave times etc

speak up ...we dont bite ...but would love to have as many folks join in as possible we can fudge arround ...if we know .

Bit of snow on the alps last night I see, could make the Omeo to Mt Beauty leg a bit chilly.
Thanks Rick, hadnt really expected to have to worry about snow! Maybe we had all better keep an eye on this :

Khankoban pub is booked out for the Friday night. There is a push bike ride heading through town. There is a caravan park with cabins available.

KHANKOBAN caravan park has family cabins with 3 rooms for $90. I will call today and see if they are available

Next option is Jindabyne. Surely there will be plenty of stuff available there, but more pricey?

I stayed at KhanKoban Karavan ParK on my recent travels. Its good: clean hot showers etc and cooking areas and a nice view. It's also Bike and Bella friendly and it was there that the Hardly riding maintenance bloke did an excellent welding job on the chair.

Just called the lady from the Karavan park and they have 2 family cabins available for the Friday night.
Cost is $96 for 2 and $10 per person after.

Three rooms each cabin.
Would be good to book them today to secure something if possible.

If someone does not want to share that is fine, but the smaller cabins work out more expensive.

see Saxksxons comment above.

Inge winter here means less rain and the occasional frost for brisbane and where I live we sometimes get a very light snow fall at some time during winter. It's not quite as severe as your winters.
Like Ainsjac was saying the global warming is because of all the warm daylight the government is saving up and storing in big warehouses.
We haven't seen very much of you on the forum lately I thought you may have been off riding somewhere.

Gents, I've been away a bit from the forum myself; much going on with work and my living situation. I hope you'll all have a splendid getaway. Wish I could be there but this work gig is prolly gunna be seeing me through the N American Summer for an October return. Watched an Aussie movie (The Sapphires) this arvo at a little theatre in Seattle and got a bit more than homesick...
Cheers.
