    We are heading down to Daly Waters pub on the second night JUST in case any southeners come along for the ride. This way we can join up , head west, return and head North to the various towns. The route is fixed BUT the camping vs motels is still open. Last year 6 of us motelled everywhere for 8 nights and it cost about a grand each. We cruised at our own pace and had no bike issues at all. Where we are going the scenery is magnificent and the roads are great to ride.

    Anyone looking to come please e-mail me at  dickobigfish@bigpond.com.au.

    cheers
