Northern NSW Ride

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

First topic message reminder :

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.

Paul,  aka Hammy,   aka Eskimo Joe.

We're coming from Armidale Sat morning and are planning to be there in time for the ride.

.. but it's "only" 572km from Newcastle to Drake via Thunderbolts! Trip to the shops. lol!

I do that round the Island in the morning before work.    lol!

What's that 100 laps Hammy?

Would  love to make it all the way, but Chris has a four hour shift on her Postie bike before we set off on Friday. Then four and a half hours to Armidale. A big days riding for anyone.  
I copped it when she found out how long the ride home would take, so we're making a weekend of it stopping off at Armidale again on the way home. Will be going via Casino, Grafton and The Waterfall Way. 
Will be at Drake well before 10am. Looking forward to meeting everyone and doing the mountain ride.  Laughing

I didn't realise that you only had half a day plus it only seems short after the ride I've just done. Very Happy

Planning to be in Armidale for lunch on Friday, hoping to link up with MM, Ewok and Boatz there. Do you guys have a rough plan for Friday? I assume you will just go up the New England Highway from Muswellbrook.

Looking forward to meeting some more Bandits on the weekend, had a great ride with 2WA and the VFR last Sunday and EWOK on Friday and Saturday.

Only 2 sleeps.  cheers

No real plan, just get up Friday morning and head to Drake. Don't know what time we'll get to Armidale. If it's around lunchtime we'll look out for you.
