Sounds good. As soon as the "official" route is decided I'll join in somewhere. With luck I might even get both days.

Smithy, count me in the number for a Sunday night stop and I've also got an escapee from the BMW Touring Club in Newcastle that is going to tag along with me and would be in for the Sunday night as well.

Cheers

Sounds great Smithy. Bruxner is a great stretch. It's a very nice climb from Drake up to the top with many switchbacks and bends. Coming down is almost as good. Laughing
How about a stop off at the Lunatic Hotel in Drake for a breather/lunch.
I'll be heading north from Casino. Cheers

There are mumblings here about 5th and 80% so there may be a toad invasion yet.

Marie has cleared both the Friday and the Sunday off work (we need to confirm our dog sitters are available still). Once we know where the stops are we can work out what's viable so we can get home easily Monday.

A reborn Smurfette may yet be in attendance (under Maries guidance). I can pick it up once the 80% vax has been reached, after that it really depends what is required to get it up and running, safe and passed a Blue slip inspection. I'll likely have 2-3 weeks. I already have the steering head bearings ready and waiting. I'm sure a new battery will be required, won't know what else till I get my hands on it.

Hi All, Smithy and I have been discussing the possible routes and accommodation options for this ride over the last few days and have info for those who have indicated their interest.

Our gathering point will be the hotel at Bendemeer for our Friday night stopover.

On Saturday our plan is to ride north via the Manilla - Bingara road and on to Inverell via Copeton Dam and then onto the Graman Hotel to the north west of Inverell for our Saturday night stopover.

For Sunday we started planning to go across to Tenterfield and down the Bruxner Highway to Evans Head as was suggested by Rickmeister however that would have put those who live south of the New England area a very long way from home for anyone who needed to be home Monday night or even Tuesday for those like RT and Waz who are further south and west from Sydney.

After a ring around of a few of the participants it was decided that on Sunday we should travel down the Gwydir Highway via Glenn Innes to Grafton then back up to the Ebor Hotel for our overnight stop. We think this makes a more central location for people to make their way home on Monday.

I've attached a couple of maps of the proposed Saturday and Sunday routes.

Smithy has been in contact with the three hotels in regard to being able to accommodating our number. At this time I note that NSW has just announced that Queenslanders would be permitted to travel to NSW without permits or other complications however its still doubtful that they would be allowed back into their home state so our expected number does not include you guys at the moment - lets hope that changes.

So far the list of participants looks like this;
Smithy, Charlie, Sean, Al & Marie, Rickmeister, Tom, Gaz & mate, Bill & mate, Waz, RT, Stan, with Rockman joining us somewhere.

If there are others who plan to join in please post up here as soon as you can as the accommodation could get tight with the general community being allowed to travel soon.

Look forward to seeing some smiling faces again.

It is increasingly unlikely that the toads will be able to get back through the rabbit fence but I will keep my options open for the time being.

Great work Gaz.

After just listening to Premier Ferretheads press conference this morning, I have no confidence I'll be able to go still. He's just pulled the pin on a previous firm committment to allow regional travel when 80% was reached (all layed out in their rock solid roadmap), I'm certain he'll have no trouble extending it again.

Sounds like a great route. Haven’t been up there for let’s say a while. Too many good roads south of the state. But the yellow brick won’t quite be on the road by then. But a good way to celebrate beng out of lockdown. Tony

So Rick, about that property with the two gates?  

On the other hand, I have just approached a mate and asked if he can organise a cross border training flight with one of his helos, or schedule some urgent maintenance from one of their assets in NSW for the 15th.  

Or as Al suggests, just wear a State of Origin jersey.

The current state of play: ( last evening)

As of November 1st, people from the greater Sydney area will be able to travel to and from regional NSW and vice versa.

As of November 19th* (frustratingly), fully vaccinated QLDers will be able to leave and re-enter QLD without having to quarantine upon their return, either in a hotel incubator or at home with a pumpkin scone and a glass of cold Powers Bitter. 

As of December 17th* fully vaccinated people from Covid hotspots ( ie: NSW and anywhere else Ms Palate-Chook doesn't like much) will be able to enter QLD without the need for special exemptions, quarantine, or the need to purchase a maroon footy jumper.


* These dates reflect the anticipated achievement of 70% fully Vaccinated in QLD and 80% respectively and may be brought forward, if these levels of double vaccination are achieved sooner. However, the date of December 17th remains as  the cut off point, even if 80% is not achieved by that date.

As of now NSW will allow folks from the sunshine state to travel over the border in a southerly direction without an Entry Declaration.

So it seems to me that our Queensland contingent can plan to come to this gathering and they just have to hoon around in NSW until after 19th November before going home. Job done - start planning.

See you at Bendemeer!

Cheers

Not wishing to be the bearer of bad news but the November 19 restrictions still will not allow us out to play without 14 days quarantine unless NSW is no longer declared a hot spot.  We have to return by air and the usual negative test results.  

If I can push my bike over the border and then jump (thru the air) from a fence post, I may just be eligible.    Northern NSW Tablelands Ride - Page 2 652573

Otherwise it is December 17 and 80% double vaxed, etc.  

All restrictions will be removed at 90%.  As long as Queensland is the banjo playing capital of Australia and NSW is a declared (by us) as a hot spot I cannot see that happening.    Northern NSW Tablelands Ride - Page 2 694830

She has been 3 years in slumber, be good to see her awaken Al. 
Head bearing is a priority , brakes will need servicing, new battery is a definite - as this prevented a trip to the inspection station when needed. Tyres are new and have been kept under cover for the duration. Blinker fuids could be low and may need topping up. 
Hoping all goes well for the krew on this ride. It has been a long rest up for many of you.
