    righto, which of you bastards are coming to have a beer or 6 at the border, only a couple of weeks to go.

    Dennis is softcocking it up around the cape so he won't be there, so who will be ??

    Yeah, I'm coming. Bringing a few.
    I'll be on my 1150R with a Harley XR1200, a Bonnie and my bro on a V-Strom.

    We are taking it real easy, leaving on Thursday !
    If the rain holds off, riding via Hyden on Thursday.
    We'll be at the usual Friday night camp I imagine.

    I haven't booked anything this year so probably be over the road on Sat.

    Andrew.

    I'll be doing this and maybe meeting up with Chicky and Co enroute.
    Also I'll bring The Pudding to the Border.
    Who want to take it West?

    I think Hillbilly is planning to take the pudding to the Desert Raid so any of us guys heading back this way that can get it to him should be fine.

    I was there, back in '88 I think - had a great time. Rode with the WA BMW club.

    GSD4ME, can you give an outline of your route / plan - I am also in Brisbane so if you don't mind sharing it would be a good start in my planning. I intend to start the drip feed for next year with SWMBO.

    Hope you all have a good one.

    The bloke I ride with is self employed and can't spare much time so we usually make it a quick bitumen run staying at pubs and motels, although a few years ago we went via the Strzelecki Track.

    We usually leave on a Monday and arrive at the border a bit after midday on the Friday, staying at Ceduna Thursday night.

    The most direct way would probably be out through Bourke, Cobar, Broken Hill, Peterborough, Horrocks Pass etc.

    Seems like a perfect opportunity to get some kms on my new S10, but its a week before we head off for the TK run, so timing doesn't work this time for me. Enjoy :freaky
