Pedro, if you get your skates on you'll ride back in 3 days.
That's only 2 extra days.

If getting the bike back to Perth is easier/cheaper than getting it to Collie, I can get it and store it at my place.

Who you going with?
I might go this year.
Need a few cards to fall my way though.

Alternative plan

A couple of years back, a bunch of you Westies pulled a trailer with 4 bikes on it here with a 4be, parked it at my joint for a couple of weeks & went riding to The Island and then Tassie; two rode their bikes back west, two trailered their bikes.
Sharing fuel, less wear & tear on the bikes, no square tyres and by sharing the driving, they could pretty much travel 24-hours straight and without stressing about skippies on the road at night.
Just a suggestion.

Supers or GP?

Might be worth contacting the Senior family in Perth, via the MCRC WA. Adam will probably be racing, and they may have room for your bike on the return trip. Maybe throw em some $ for fuel?

Worth a try.

Too much stress trying to arrange consecutive activities like that - you're turning 50, try to slow down a little and do one or the other.

I've got a very secure garage for you in NE Melb and probably some help moving it.
Of course i could ride it back for you in a few days

That's because they keeled over from a heart attack before they managed to get the words out.

As the wise old yoga masters say,

You only get a certain amount of heart beats in a life time.


Dont waste them.
