    The pig hasn't started his journey yet. I was actually trying to hold off his start until mid January when I head off to Tasmania for 9 days and then hand the pig over to 'Justal' who will take him to either Ayres Rock or Birsbane Australia. I'm thinking though that maybe we cant wait till mid January and maybe I just have to start the pig off with a big day run somewhere??:D Anyone heading out of Victoria Australia in the next month on a ride? I'd love to ride the first few hundrede K's with the pig and then be happy to hand him over?? Maybe hand him over on the murray river somewhere or on the GOR?? Any thoughts. maybe 2-3 weeks time?? Otherwise I'll wait for the Tassie trip in Jan. Bacon is definately IN THE BUILDING :rofl but he's keen to go.....

    I'll also write up some headings, details in Bacons personal travel log so people know what to fill out. I.e. Start locatation, end location, how many kilometers, who carried him, what sort of bike.....dates etc....:clap

    I'd gladly take him!

    After the last 2 weeks at work my manager is begging me to take some time off!

    I'm heading to Adelaide on Boxing day so there's another option.

    Let me know.

    If Bacon needs a ride in southern Ohio or North/Central/East Kentucky, I would be happy to give him a lift if he doesnt mind riding a KLR.

    I can do a leg in or around Norway (possibly to Nordkapp if the timing is right). I am certainly in for at least a rendezvous rideout in Southern Norway or Sweden.

    OK, as everyone is keen (including Bacon) to get things moving, I am working towards a start in a couple of weeks.

    Stay tuned.....:evil

    Good work Gazza will this now move to ride reports or it might be a better idea to start a new thread there?

    I reckon it deserves a sticky.

    This is nice, but the pig head and tail is funny as hell. Make the stickers small so the head and tail will fit.

    I see no one has the north east?
    I will take him from Long Island and the Montauk Point Light house into CT, MA, and if no one steps up in NH and VT, I will do those too. I think Geode will take Maine and some other states. :augie



    Bacon doesn't ride inside. strap him to the outside somehwere and of into the wild blue yonder!
    Bacon needs a helmet

    I'd be interested in the AR, OK, MO or TN (USA) part of the trip. I'll check back often...this is a great idea. Good work fellas:clap

    I just remembered I may be going to the Virgin Islands in the spring...think Bacon would be interested in some island hopping!?!

    Count me in for Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee....maybe a leg between helixblue and boottothedoor. This is one of the coolest ideas ever. I know there is no telling when Bacon will be in my pan:rofl but I'm going from Barber to Indy in September and would love to take him to the MotoGP:clap

    thanks for reminding me scooby...I was planning on going to the GP in Indy. We should get a whole group of ADV riders and escort Bacon to the races.

    I'm still paying attention and willing to help as needed. Have just been reading to keep up-to-date; nothing important to post right off.
