Hi all,

As raised by TacKler ( https://www.k100-forum.com/t18115-southern-ride-23 ) I indicated I'd be happy to organise a Southern Ride for next year.

With some assent and no dissent, my suggestion of 4th and 5th March will be the basis of planning.

I'll contact Walwa Hotel with a view to meeting there again, but failing that I'm sure I can find something somewhere that won't require a tent if you don't want it.

Doubtless there will be associated plans for those who have a liking for the long cut and various meet-ups along the way. I'll leave my planning to the nights of Friday 3 and Saturday 4 and join in other plans where I can.

Any further inputs and suggestions are welcome. (Internationals would be especially welcome.)

Bill

Definitely interested.  I probably have a bike available for any visiting OS visitors.

Good to get a date out there Bill. Like many of us this year my riding trips have been pretty limited so that gives us a target to plan towards.

Maybe the waters will have subsided by then.

Thanks

Can't see why not.  

As long as we lock in the dates and Bill gives the thumbs up for the location.

You would be only too welcome. Now we just have to find you a bike and some accommodation.

Just confirming that I've booked us in to Walwa Hotel again. Under new ownership/management since last May.
Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th March.

I've provisionally booked us in for 10 people, on the basis of room sharing but not bed sharing. There are a couple of rooms with a double bed only if anyone wants to go solo.

Under the 'herding cats' principle, I know that people can't do a rock solid commitment at this early stage, but anyone who has an interest in coming, indications of interest and to the extent possible an indication of the likelihood of being able to actually join us would be welcome and helpful.

Thanks.

(I've sent caveman a PM expanding on the expressions of welcome already in this thread.)

Well all,
I'm going to try to work this out. The timing is good for me I just completed a work project/commitment that was started as a year but with changes in scope of work and the pandemic it drug out for two years so I'm going to take some down time. I'm heading out to Montana to visit my daughter (she is due to have a baby the second week of December) and help out on the ranch for a month or so. Normally I get out on the bike for 6 to 8 weeks out of the year but the last two years i've only got out for a couple of weeks. It is time for me to get back to my normal!

Any K forum member is welcome here in Bathurst.  My RT is probably available but not really suited to taller people.  I can guarantee that the fuel filter won't blow off mid ride.

I would be only too happy to show you round some of the sights and a few nights accommodation but my extra ride is already reserved for one other international traveller.

Bill, I’m a Yes barring the usual contingencies at my age i.e. I’m still healthy enough to ride.

I might have to contact and book the whole place out! And its not even December! 

So, this post, as amended from time to time, will be the authoritative list to save people having to troll through the whole topic to find whether the person you'd be happy to ride with, (or the person you want to avoid  Razz), will be along.

Bill
