Ok time to organise a ride for everyone to get together. We all get on well and it would be good for a face to face and catch up.

The poll is the most active states on the forum and you decide where you would like everyone to catch up.

After the poll has finished it's finalised and won't be changed then we can try and organise a date convenient for everyone it doesn't bother me I'll ride anywhere.

Accommodation will be decided preferably a country pub with accommodation and restaurant. Anyone living in that area would be helpful.

Two nights would be good and could even get a discount on a group booking and those paying off speeding tickets and paint jobs no names mentioned Geoff.

Let me know what you think throw out some ideas and let's do this. It would be good to catch up with everyone in person. I've met some good people of the forum and made good friendships it would be good to continue it.

Country NSW gets my vote too.

There’s some sublime roads, generally low policing and heaps of pubs to choose from.

The road from Oberon to Taralga to Oberon via Trunkey Creek (see pic) has something for everyone. The majority of that loop has good surfaces and 100km/hour limits.




The Royal Hotel in Oberon is large, has some old school charm, quite a few rooms, secured parking at rear for 20 bikes or 6 GTLs snigger there’s also a pizza joint in town.

Oberon, Tarana, Neville, Woodstock, Blayney, these are all places that have hosted such events.

I have an extremely flexible schedule so I’ll leave it to other/s to select a date.

Looks like someone has nominated as Captain Navigation , well done John hope the NSW locals don’t cause a rebellion. There could be a state v state rumble

Being from ACT, Country NSW sounds good for me as well. That Dinplug loop above is nice riding, done it before, it’s good. Never stayed at the pub in Oberon though, we stayed in a Bathurst motel And then returned the next day to Canberra, via Goulburn

I've organised these before over the years it's not rocket science it's a matter of pulling the finger out and doing it 😁 l checked dinplug location looks great and only 12 hour ride could smash that out in a day

When I had the GTR14 l did rides with the far riders over a thousand k in a day @AntonZ he'll probably want 4 days to get there 😁
I’ll crate & freight the bike down and fly 👌🏼

That’s on the back roads, of course?
