    That's right...seem to recall promising somebody I'd bring beer. If that takes up too much room it'll have to be tequila. Aye Carumba!

    Idea, suggestion, reason -
    The originators of the OCR and others that where there at the first one and many after that are either not riding, sold their bikes, passed on or are over the crowds.
    So a rebirth is due.
    A return to somewhere centralish like Innamincka again could start a rebirth of a kind. At that Rally/meeting it could be decided where to go next and what rules it should follow and stick to it. Stopping all the back and forth chat on the Internet helping those that don't do this forum plan in advance. Those that turn up to the REBIRTH have the SAY.
    If you need to know, yes I was at the first OCR and did many many of the others but not all.
    All the best to all.

    Thanks for your input Beet, I think you’re on the money.
    I’ve been watching this thread and wondering if the OCR as we know it is no longer.
    I’ve not been to many but know enough to understand what happened at the last one is not how it’s supposed to work.
    In my eyes it has become too much like what the originators were trying to get away from.
    Perhaps a reboot is what’s needed and will get things back on track.
    Here’s hoping.

    Me personally I would love to see the OCR go the same way as the "Desert Raid" that the West Aussie lads do.

    Make it self sufficient in really remote areas.

    Just my 2c worth.
