1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    Here we go again... for the 37th time. DOCNSW presents you with the opportunity to attend this long running event. One week later than is usual due to MOTOGP being scheduled on the last weekend of October (without any consultation I might add).

    Entry link here... https://www.ducatiownersclubnsw.com.au/thunder-rally-registration/

    All profits to Royal Ryde Rehabilitation Hospital who do remarkable things with those who have suffered spinal chord and other neurological trauma. Please help us support this worthwhile cause by coming along and having a good time with like minded folk.

    At Sheba Dams which is aprox 14kms from Nundle and a great spot to camp beside two trout filled dams. Drop dunnies on site. The local lions club will be present from Friday night until Sunday morning to provide some basic tucker (which is what vegetarian nightmares are made of). Other supplies available in Nundle>

    I will attempt to get some more info loaded over next couple of days.

    Hi Duckslider, that is a bugger. We did search early in the year for other conflicting events but this one did not come to attention. We are too far into the organisation and promotion to change things now.

    Apologies to BMW Tourers for this oversight as they are regularly our highest club attendee winners over many of the years that the Rally has been held.

    Hi Baza,
    It is our intention to return to the last weekend in October next year (2019) as is usual. Having said that there are a few folk we were hoping to avoid with the date change...

    I'll be on the 1150GSA mate, same as last time:lol3. Actually it was an outfit last time. I'll be doing a fair bit of dirt going up to and around Byron/Nimbin so leaving the shiny one at home. I had the Multi all packed to go last year but piked at the 11th hour:(
