Ok  I know it's early notice but nothing like planning ahead, The ride through the northern tablelands is on again, the weekend of the 22-23/ 11/2014. Plenty of accommodation in Guyra with van parks pubs ect: This year I'll make available a paddock at the Smiths farm(Riverdale) for the campers to throw a tent down near a fire, with BBQ  on the Saturday and Sunday night after the ride. This will be a full day ride on Sunday again, that will take us on a similar route through Ebor, Dorrigo, Coffs Harbour, Orara Valley to Nana Glen. But this time we'll return via Coutts Crossing, with a stop at Russel Crows  Coaching Station Inn at Nymboida to checkout the museum of interesting things, then on to Tyringham, Ebor and back to Guyra. Hopefully no tornadoes this year . All welcome

Hey Waz, we should be familiar with some of those attractions by then after the Scrapheap run. Great country up there and as we all know everyday is a good day for a ride - just some are better than others.

Hope I can make it Smithy - the only thing that might hinder me is the small matter of a new grandchild being born on the other side of the world around late October. It's gonna be busy trying to fit in Scrapheap, Phillip Island MotoGP, teenage granddaughter playing soccer for Australia in Spain in November and new baby in the UK.

Cheers

I'll be out unfortunately.  End of November is end of the teaching year for me, finishing marking etc for the end of the course makes it completely out of the question.

Ed, the baking skills of the original poster would mean that a skone bake off would be a non-event or maybe a masterclass.

Hey it's good to see the tornadoes of last year hasn't deterred anyone from coming again, or is it that K riders will go anywhere with skones involved, no real mystery in sKone making when you have a 20ltr commercial Hobart mixer on the kitchen bench. Could be a good laugh Ed , don't know how Kay would handle biker types in the kitchen making scones!

Maybe I'll pre mix and wrap the dough up in foil, bake em on the way up. Might not look too good tho, and that
cream may not be too healthy by the time I get there. How are those roads, any improvements? I've only got one fairing mount bracket left.

 They should be about the place somewhere. Will have a look when my hands don't freeze to the shed door trying to get in!
We hillbillies will certainly pop along for the ride if the Brick is painted properly etc by then!

Glad you can come Warren, there should be others coming up from your direction that you could tag along with.
Can anyone remember how many Ks we had on last years ride, I thought we had 12 bikes and 9 were Ks.
Is there a record for number of Ks on a Aussie forum ride?

Great pics Charlie, 11 looks like the magic number, surely we can muster that and more! Your right about Ghosty, when he turned up at Far cairn rally, what a ride he had. Surely Gordo must have got the trophy for longest distance that weekend .

Yes Waz. It is I.

Schorn was in the tub or shaving or packing up or having one off the wrist when photos were called.

Poor Bella was most confused.

Narrandera.

As you can see my time was limited.

Note Mr Klompy doing up his helmet.

I think I had time enough till he put his gloves on before I missed muster. Damn you armed forces training.

Just as an aside, if you are travelling on the New England Highway I recommend the roadhouse at Deepwater.

I got to spend from late sunday arvo to lunchtime monday there last weekend when I had a flat coming back from Stanthorpe. Very helpful in arranging a new tube to be dropped off, and let me use their gear to fix it. Then Kevin the mechanic wouldnt take any money.

Fuel isnt any more expensive than anywhere else and the bacon and eggs for breakfast was tasty.

Ever since I have been riding up and down the New England Highway the people at the Deepwater Roadhouse have been friendly and it hasn't always been the same people and the Bakery across the road makes real good meat pies.

Hey Gaz and all others
                                 The ride dates are the weekend of the 22/23  of November, there will be camping available at our farm ( Riverdale) on Saturday & Sunday. I'll get some wood together for a bonfire and BBQ on the Saturday night, then we'll have a full days ride on the Sunday. With the closure of the Coaching Station Inn and museum of interesting things, we'll still head down via Tyringham, then on to the Golden Dog hotel for lunch, then riding through the Orara valley to Coffs and back to Guyra via Dorrigo and the Waterfall Way.

Thanks for the quick reply Smithy. Got it in the calendar now - gives a couple of weekends breathing space between the Snowy ride Waz suggested and this one - unless of course I try to go to the Bombala Bike Show the weekend of 15/16th November as well.

I might need to give up work to fit in all these rides.

Cheers

Talk of numbers of  K bikes at meets got me thinking about the Irish.

No official claims have been made but I have a gut feeling that they have outdone us

on a couple of occasions. Are we going to stand for that!

So make a big effort boys, to at least beat our own record, 'cos as you Know..

I won't be there.


Far Kairn. Best I have got. I can positively count 12 here and Al had his chair, not shown, so 13 with quite a few others not there for various reasons. Feel free to up the count if you are not pictured or Know of the others.
