    Ok Steamer, another one for August, meet up in Emerald.
    Well I can do Qantas and you can do the stockmans hall of fame. :)

    We are all getting older Beefa :(
    That's why we were thinking 600 or so kn per day. That isn't to bad when split into 4 stints.

    Cheers Ken

    Gday Steve. 

    I dipped out for a little while but have been back now and again ;-)  I’ll keep an eye on this thread. I’m not fussed on dates, I’m pretty flexible.

    Hi All
    Been busy with work! Would appear the go month is AUGUST 2019 (date to be confirmed). So for those who are interested, can we get some starting locations, I know some from up north QLD and some from south and others I'm not to sure? The purpose being a starting point/s and meeting point prior to crossing into NT. Happy to do the Longreach gig!
    My suggestion, for those in the south we meet in Toowoomba and meet the northern folk in Emerald, or we take the coast road north, meet in Rockhampton and head as a group from there????

    Above all up for comment, but please list your start position first. I'm Brisbane.

    Cheers and Beers

    Steve

    As with most of my plans, I’m probably not gonna be able to commit until late but it sounds like it’ll be great to do. Fingers are crossed here in SA :-)

     Keeping an eye on this. Am keen to go but leaving from Adelaide. Throwing around the idea that I may ride up to Rocky and do a loop out to the rock then head back south straight to Adelaide. Grew up in CQ and always said "Happiness is Rocky in your rear view mirror".


    Any one else from SA up for a ride in the country?

    Stay off the crappy coast road, go via the inland bilo emerald way, it is soooo much better.
    I can add on a bit off distance and hook up at Emerald.
    Hoping to have the new suspension done and dusted by then :)
    Cheers Ken

    In all serious, its now late Feb and the last agreement was August, So the dates are from Monday 5th August-Sunday 18th August [so thats a 2 week block for those seeking time off], not that I'm suggesting this is a 2 week trip, but allows to organise a time frame within that period [if that makes sense]???

    Whilst I recognize we've had expressions from all over this great country, in order to facilitate those responses, it is a case of numbers and location!

    The original plan was to leave Brisbane and head North West and meet in Emerald with our Northern friends [trust you have held up well in recent weeks]?
    Stopping in Longreach then heading over the boarder! Hit our Target, then either head back, or South into SA, then NSW, Canberra to be precise then head home!

    So my current question/s are this:
    a) Do we stick to the original plan Bris. and North meet in Emerald?
    b) Reverse the run, head south into NSW first  [Canberra, I do want to do the war museum], then west then north then home via Longreach if that makes sense?

    From my perspective, it's hard enough organizing a Sunday bike run, let alone something of this magnitude!
    So for those that are genuinely interested, please let me know your thoughts, and at the end of the day [numbers will decide]!
    Cheers and Beers

    I am 50 / 50 if can still make this ride. $$$ are the biggest thing at moment. But will deff try my best as been wanting to do this run past 3 years.
       I reckon head West ( anti clockwise). Just a thought, but maybe the Brissy guys can head out via Charleyville to Longreach and meet there instead of Emerald. Just my two bobs worth.

    I am still keen.
    However dealing with the aftermath of my mother inlaw passing away.

    Hopefully it will all be sorted out by then.

    Plan you trip Stevo, looks like Im the only one up this end of town contemplating the trip anyway. If the Brisbane creq want to go via Emerald and Longreach I'm happy to join them, if not I'll ride solo and see ya's at the rock.
    Cheers Ken

    Geee, Thats a long way and a lot of time riding through red dust to see just a rock! (that your not even supposed to climb, although it looks like you can f'it and climb it anyway)

    That would not even make the reject list for my bucket list.
