    Thought you might be interested.

    There are 5 of GS owners going - trying to entice more off road riders, so we can outvote those that ride the Bismarck!

    Participated in the last 3 events Rhino Boy & had a great time on each of them. Unfortunately this year is out of the question. :cry

    Rod, while the cost is a bit on the heavy side for a weeks ride, bearing in mind you still have to pay for the accom, meals & fuel, my wife & I get a hell of a lot more out of this event than we do with the Ulysses annual events - go figure.

    Maybe it's the one brand syndrome, or the smaller number of participants. Maybe it's the organisation. Whatever the reason, I will continue to attend whenever work commitments permit.

    On each & every event we've attnded, the off road boys allways seemed to have a hell of a time.

    I don't like the though of paying that much money just of a T shirt and to ride with a bunch of brand snobbs.... Rhinoboy and your self excluded...

    The $$$$ are worth it for the work they put in to the trip prep and the route maps.

    I did lasy year and we avoided like the plague the evenings entertainment, each night we found a great pub or restaurant and entertained ourselves.

    We also took Andrea Mayer to dinner in Echuca one night and had a great time (just the 4 of us), listenting to her stories about the Paris Dakar.

    Next year, will be the same, do the off-road route, ride, have fun and avoid the hordes at the end of the day.

    If you went last year, I gave em the video they showed on the 1st evening in Thredbo, the one with the desert footage.

    That's what makes this forum so interesting ... the difference of opinions on various topics. I don't think there is any brand snobs as you say - merely a BMW arranged, & customer supported, week long ride & as long as we get the enjoyment we have in the past, will continue to support it ... but without the tassels.:rofl

    Yep, saw the video ... great, & enjoyed the evening immensely.

    Not sure that I liked the stop & go format from last years event, would prefer to be travelling every day ... after all that's why I attended in the first place, to travel see different places with like minded people.

    Will be interesting to see if they continue with the rest day format or revert to the original.
