A few years ago I organised a ride to Broken Hill . We stayed at an old ex-pub . Think it was The Grand Guesthouse . Plenty of rooms and a big lounge we could chill in . The owner even took us in her ute to the bottle o to get all the booze , and she emptied fridges for us to use . She cooked a roast for tea Sat night . We rode there Friday , did a day ride Saturday round Broken Hill , then out to Silverton . Rode home Sunday .We had 20+ bikes that week end . Secure parking out the back .
Sounds like Pitchi Ritchi, the only thing i require is a Pub, i like to socialise with the locals, i cannot sit around like old women in the Lounge room watching telly.
Classic Mickle .....
I'm up for Moama, Broken Hill or anywhere really but needs to be a deceent ride to make it worthwhile. Still a bit pissed I had to cancel this year.
By the way this just reminded me the pricks at Moama still havent refunded our cancelled booking even though Gnoo took the cabin aand he promised an immediate refund.
Plenty pubs within walking distance , but this is just a throw it in for discussion post .
Port could be playin footy ...
Great point so is Cobar !! lol
Be keen on Broken Hill . Decent ride and pretty central for most apart from the Sandgropers.... but Keith and Trev don't mind a little ride!
They are assholes, I left a pair of expansive shorts in a cabin by accident which were giving to me by my daughter.
Had a hell of a time getting them sent home, kept getting told they had forgot.
After a few phone calls I gave up and sent an abusive email. They showed up yesty.
Btw why don't we have it in qld, a decent ride for everyone and that way we might get one qlder to show...
Second thoughts naaaa fuck em
Sent an email after writing this. Got the refund yesterday. But..... was promised immediate refund at the time. Thank fuck Hutchy did this post or I would have forgotten. Customer service a bit lacking. (along with my memory}
Bit pissed with them Hutchy but still a good spot. As long as its a decent ride, a good turnout and a pub anywhere is good.
Talking to Blair at ABW on the weekend, and he mentioned Kiama in NSW as a fantastic spot to visit with some very nice rides in the area. He had stopped over on the way back from the HD dealer meeting in Wollongong. Don't know anything about accommodation , but the New South blokes might be able to offer an opinion. Pretty central unless your from WA, but at least the Vic boys would get their engines warm, hey Mickle and China?
It is a nice spot, great little town but like the GOR it gets overrun by tourists these days.
Also accomadation is lacking.
Excellent riding though Kangaroo valley,Jambaroo Mt as well as the coast rd etc
Moama is a great spot, but need to change it around a bit to get others involved. Broken Hill was a good run, Somewhere central NSW, Bathurst, Katoomba, Tamworth? NOT PRICKTORIA!
Never been to Bathurst, but it would be good to have 20+ HDs cruising the track (within the speed limit, of course )
Broken Hill would give most a decent ride to get there. The guest house is a good venue, not sure how many can stay there, but there would be other options too.
What's people's opinion on dates? Maybe bring it forward a few weeks to avoid being too close to Edenhope??
I've been chatting with Keith over in WA. He likes the idea of going to Tassie for the National Run.
The boat is very cheap if you book early.
The roads in Tassie as just insanely awesome. Well worth the trip.
Second motion from the West in favor of ! Seen enough of SA/VIC tracks to last a year or two,Launceston based ride out of ?
