Northern NSW Ride

Post  Hammy on Fri 08 Nov 2013, 10:19 am

OK. Sorry about getting all excited and rushing in about a stage 2 event.  But I would like to try and organise a long weekend ride sometime in the new year while the weather gods are  still kind to us. My pick would be Drake as a 1-2 overnight base camp. Obviously if some of you guys/gals were coming up from a fare way down , then you will organise rest stops along the way.  There are so many fantastic ride roads all around that area that I'm sure that it would be a great location. John and I did Cowra to Drake comfortably in one day, and he was aboard his Triumph Tractor. I'm not suggesting that that is what everyone should do. Only pointing out that it is pretty easy.  I truly hope that we can get something going and look forward to any ones interest.

I'm absolutely interested, however , considering how harsh you all were about my inability to attend the last ride, I'm sure you will schedule it on my wife's birthday or some other significant day that I can't get a leave-pass on! lol!

Cheers ReCycled.  The ball is starting to roll.  We can decide on a mutual date that is ok with everyone. Am sure that you will be able to meet up with one or more down your way to make the trip more interesting. As soon as we get 3-4 starters we will decide on the date. How many Ks are you away from Drake ?

I can usually rely on my brother for some company, as for distance, it depends on how much fun I want to have on the way. Twisted Evil

Of course there's some other guys around Newcastle that might join in, and Boozer a forum member and usual suspect on our rides.

I'm up for this but definitely need to do Oxley on the way up there, or on the way down. Any dates suits me but would like to miss the monsoonal rains that generally happens up near the border there.

Pre-Xmas is out as I've used up all the available dates! 17Feb is out as I'm doing a V8 raceday at Wakefield Park. 24Feb is also out as I have to go to Wollongong. But early or mid Feb is good for me or any of March and April.

That's my new satellite internet connection.  Good job it was fitted free under the NBN plan as we're in a fringe area (as you can tell by the quality of the upload).  So don't expect me to comment on any post that contains video as the link is too slow to load video.  What I really need is proper NBN (ie not one that consists of two empty soup cans connected by a piece of string).

OK with that.  As soon as we decide on a date I will ring the Drake Hotel and book the accommodation.  You guys will love it up there.  Hows about you "Jimmy" ?  Coming ?  Paul ? Mad Max ?  Heaps of time to plan it.
