Keeping my eye on this one. Could be a starter if something eventuates. I worked in Narrabri for a while many years back and still have some of my wife's family and friends there.

Warrabah sounds nice. My mate who lives at Eulah Ck speaks highly of it.

Spion Kop is a Boer term meaning "lookout hill". There's a few spion kops around. Rode it a few weeks back and it has been cleaned up over what it's reputation suggested. Definitely an easy GS road in the dry.

We are off for a picnic today so Ill do some recon on the key issue.
I can't see what the problem with onighting the key would be. greg should be OK.
Regards Gateman.
PS: us old farts on oversize bikes might need some options/ alternative routes if I feel a bit out of my depth.
Snooks youll be right - hook in go faster!!

at this stage the weekend of the 20th of november looks the goods to me - I am moving house after that so a few days on the bike might be a good thing!! I also like the Idea of a run over kaputar after a night in Warabah - there allegedly used to be a road from warrabah to barraba or we could go into manilla and over borah and back to barraba?

Options are limitless for good roads :)

Regards

Leith

Sounds good to me, I'm planning on going to Imbil on 14/15 then spending a week getting home along the east side of the range, meeting up around here would suit me fine. Plan A at the moment anyway, Pete

G'day Lentil and Co
20th will work for me too.
The key situation is no big deal. Talked to BP today. You leave details of Your day in date and return date and $25 deposit for a key. You have the key as long as you indicated it is required for. No need to have it back each night.
Their suggestion was two keys so if the group has to split up for whatever reason both lots have a key to get out. Wendy and I took a look today. The first locked gate is at the John Perry Picnic Area. 51kms from Barraba. Water BBQ and covered table. Very steep past this point (walked about 1.5km past the gate). Next stop and camping area is Dawson Springs Camping Area 5kms on from Perry or Bark Hut Camping Area 10km past Perry.(61kms from Barraba). Second locked gate.
I will be going as steady as all get out in the area I looked at today and i suspect any 1200 rider will be doing the same. This is going to be a great ride. How do you feel about this trip in November and another over the aussie day long weekend some other place as the original post was aiming at?
Lentil you have 19 very hot to trot.

The 20th. Bring it on!!!

If we can't get out the top side of Warrabah, Crow Mtn Rd over to Woodsreef isn't a bad run. Although a good explore up the back of Warrabah would definatley be worth checking out.

Barraba Keys

Spion Kop has recently had a big upgrade & I bet you could put a Commodore over it now (fukked up agood ride!!!!!). Barraba to Kaputar is a great ride with a few tight spots but doable on 12g; a few issues with the key, they only have 10 & 1 is needed per bike, they don't release any keys if it looks like or has rained even a few mm's, & they are supposed to be returned same day making it hard to do a loop from Barraba to Narrabri, keys only available in Barraba not Narrabri.I am certainly interested in a ride sometime but harvest is looming so all October NFG for me.
Ride on, Bardo.
Gateman , your right about the keys, I rang the Tourist Info Centre & things have changed since we last tried to get a large group of bikes through there. They just wouldn't have it last time! Technically you need 1 key per bike as per National Parks rule, but it was suggested to me to ask for 1 or 2 keys & not to mention the 15 or 20 bikes that would be going. It is now ok to keep keys o'nite as you say.
Hope I didn't cause too much confusion with my original post. It is a great ride, we often go through, turn around & go back & do it again. I've been through in a 4wd Rodeo (Barraba to Kaputar) & didn't use 4wd at all, just poke along steady & all is good.
Ride on, Bardo.
