    Don't know how I'll go for leave this year? I'll see what happens closer to the time. I hope to make it.

    I understand. My company even though I'm in negative leave then insisted I take two weeks off in a row this year rather than my planned bits and pieces. Must admit I choose to going skiing for two weeks :D Better be a good season:eek1

    Up to you. Now we have linked it to the Relay's it can be done later in the year with one of the other ones in the region. Bacchus Marsh is later in the year. This brings a bit more flexibility into the organising. Part of the reason for the change as it gives us many more options.

    Okay

    Qld is in flood
    NSW interesting it is either raining, hailing, blowing a gale, or on fire
    Vic on Fire (so Relay will be later in the year hopefully linking to Alpine Relay, good visibility around burnt corners)
    SA well we struggle to get them to care so the Vic's take it over the border
    WA - haven't got there yet, but love them dearly.
    NT - Generally open to people passing through, looking for someone to take on and an excuse for everyone to have to get there.

    Tassies: Here it comes.......................

    besides Lake Leake, Pedder and every other lake with a pub and a dirt road (okay Pedder is now asphalt); Ferntree near Hobart will see some outstanding hospitality (not hospitals) with the ADV guys putting on a BBQ, accommodation and support from the Ferntree pub. Community reigns supreme in Tassie (well every state actually are stars (especially our Central Vic crew and our Canberra Minister), but only a couple of weeks to Tass so on the marketing drive.

    For Vics if you want to come, let me know and we can discuss transport.

    Those feeling competitive to be the best go for it, I look forward to having to take most of the year off to attend each State's Motorcycle Relay and work with each state to get this up :clap

    Remember it is about riding, awareness, having fun and then raising money. More awareness and fun reduces the need for funds, though unfortunately funds are still required.

    Howdy

    Lovely to hear from you. We are doing things a bit differently this year as we are linking to Relay for Life's. Didn't you promise last year that you would organise an overseas one? :evil Yes, Bronx is still involved, he is just very good a delegation!!!

    Thanks for the link.

    Hmm, promise? :evil We'll see what I can do.... Mind you didn't Bruce say he was going to investigate my idea to auction 'a ride down under' by trying to get a loan of a bike from somewhere and a free flight from somewhere. Then find some friendly Aussies to show around the winner for a week or 2? Reckon the pommies/Americans/Germans (from wherever really) may dig deep for that?

    What you reckon?

    Cheers

    Hi GR,

    QLD fell off the radar last year due to TK Smith being unavailable. Check out the Ride Website at:
    http://motorcyclingagainstcancer.org.au/Index/Welcome.html
    to get an idea of how it works. We're trying to link in more closely with Relay for Life events in local areas now as that proves mutually beneficial for both fundraising efforts. It's pretty easy, choose a R4L event, plan a ride (road or ADV) that incorporates a visit to the R4L event and let us know and we'll get it up on the website and plug it relentlessly here on ADV Rider (as much as the mods will let us). Interested? Drop us a PM

    Cheers,

    Adv UNCuT

    Hi everyone, this year we are trialling online donations for the Tassie ride which starts on 22nd March, with a grand opening by the Governor of Tassie at the Penguin Relay for Life.

    I will be in touch for the other states shortly, and we will take about 18months to do the transition to pick up each states Relay's, but thus far we have Tassie and looking at November for Vic with the Alpine Ride. We are keen to go to Qld for the Relay. I will look up dates and post for everyone.
