Cape to Cape.

I've always wanted to do a Cape to Cape ride. That is West Cape to East Cape, the Adventure way. I'm thinking about Labour weekend, two days over, then Monday to get home.
What ya reckon ?

PLEASE NOTE: This is not an official organised ride. Just a forum to see who may be interested in coming along. If you wish to come you will need to organise your own accomodation etc. I will post where and when we will start and where we will stay. There is no back up vehicle or support of any kind. If there is only a few of us we will run as a group using the corner man/woman system. If there is to man of us for that to work I will talk with Colin about making a GPS file available so you can do your own thing.
Cheers Phil

The list of those who are definately coming on this ride and what you are riding.
Phil BMW R80GS
Colin BMW R1100GS
Alistair (The silly bugger who lets Colin play with machinery) KTM 990
padmei R80GS Team Loud Valves Racing
Boxabits BMW 100GS
Aslan BMW 1200GS ?
Ztaj BMW 800 pistons in a line thing
