Bridge to Bridge; TK memorial Ride 2014

Looks like Sept 6 to 11
Sydney to Brisbane
Nav ride with the route loaded into your GPS
Ride at your own pace and meet up each night for pub/camping
TB and Wolfie are organising it and can probably give a link to more info
Any Queenslanders keen to organise a group deal on freight down to Syd and fly in morning of the ride like a movie star?
I'll go thru me old Sidetracks and see if I can find the original Bridge to Bridge Story

RideAdv is a commercial venture

What is the link between this and the TK memorial ride?

I guess the link is that its not about making money
it will cost less than the original bridge to bridge a decade ago
i think tb said 60 or 70 bucks a day
Its different to the format of the last couple of tk memorial rides
but no ones going to get rich out of it
and theres a sweep vehicle to pick up alll the bmws

I think it was the 2nd TK memorial ride when over a few beers we reminisced over all the Sidetrack subscriber rides and the Bridge to Bridge was the ride that really seemed to stand out as everyones favourite at the table.
After much discussion Greg Yager said he would put his hand up to put together a route that would take us as close as possible to the original, most people said it would be too big of a ride to recreate.
The original ride took place in 1997 and with the help of Yamaha Australia it cost $450 plus fuel,camping fees and drinks etc plus the trip home for bike and rider and the total was about $800 each, and we put in some extra funds along the way to donate to the local towns that looked after us. Tony never made any money and it actually cost Sidetrack.
This ride is under Rideadv because it is a big event to organise and there is expenses like insurance, support , sweep riders, pre running etc etc.
Once again as i understand Yamaha Australia has put its hand up to help out and this will help keep costs down to riders. There will definitely be no profits on this ride in fact a lot of work has been put in by Greg, Wolfie and others at their cost.
I think that 17 years on, we have people willing to put in the hard yards to try and recreate this ride as close as possible to Tk's original, is a testament to the man, his rides and magazine.

As some wise person once said " there is no such thing as a free ride "
