I think there will be at least one other tiger on the road. You never know your luck with the rain. Be tough, be strong and remember you cannot get any wetter than wet.

Can now confirm that "Dean's Disco" has offered his services and will be playing at the After Ride party.

For Old Dog; Dean cannot find a copy of Morning Town Ride by the Seekers and has asked if you have a alternative request. He has suggested something from the "Grease" movie, say, Your the one that I want. I think it is about a young man wanting a KLR650 or something.

We actually have had to modify our plans a little and may spear off at some stage of the day to check out a route we need to try.

We're not sure yet, but one way or the other we'll be there.

Thanks for the reply.
Oxford Hotel just about full but plenty of other options available.

News today that we have about four riders coming down from Goondiwindi and St George.

May even be enough for a friday night session.

..........friday night session

Oh and Col can yer ask Dean if he has any Barry Manilow? If he doesn't have the Seekers (bloody peasant) then Barry will have to do.


On the serious side, my Sister and Brother-in-laws farm at Mundubbera has been destroyed in the floods and I'll be heading North to help when I can get through, so there is an chance that i may not make it. I'll keep you in the loop.

Lunch Stop - Guyra

Jo's Jo's Cafe in Guyra will be the lunch stop for the ride. Colin, the proprietor, will return 20% of his lunch taking to Down Syndrome. He is offering basic fixed price lunches at competitive pricing.

Ride Update

The route is locked in.
All the helpers have their hands up.

Have we forgotten anything?

Coffee/tea and biscuits available compliments of Team Inverell.
Ride brief at 9:15.
Depart at 9:30 (Sharp, I hope)
First leg 130 km approx.

2nd Leg 120 km approx.
Quick smoko and Fuel at Glen Innes.
3rd Leg 115 km approx.
Arrive Inverell Approx 5:300 to 6:00 PM

Remember to refuel prior to departure or we will heap lots of crap onto you.

After ride party and Lucky draw at about 7:00 or 7:30.

I stated before that you had to be present to claim the major prize of a $200 spanner set.
Not correct, be there if you can and if you win it we will sent it to you.
There will be lots of other draws also.

At this stage, we have starters from Inverell and District, St George, Goondiwindi, Coffs Harbour, Tamworth, Brisbane, Casino and more on a range of different bikes from KTM990's to a Yamaha 125cc.

Be there, it will be a great ride.
