2014 Scrapheap Adventure Ride - Nymboida - 19-21 September

Were off again!!! Let the Madness begin!!!

The Scrapheap Adventure ride travels to Nymboida in 2014!

The Scrapheap Adventure Ride is a call to all motorcycle collectors and madcap enthusiasts from around the country to join an extraordinary Aussie adventure and raise much needed funds for kids with Down Syndrome.

The challenge for hardcore scrappers is to buy a bike for no more than $1000 and fix it up for an adventure ride through the outback. All motorcyclists are welcome and the ride usually gets a great turnout of classic bikes and sidecar rigs as well.

Over the last four years, the ride has raised in excess of $220,000 for Down Syndrome NSW.

Check out our new web site and we are ready for registrations.

www.scrapheapadventureride.com.au

This is the thread with all the details and a place to talk about your bike builds, and groups.

Adventure Moto are Supporting another 2 day ride to the event.

Hi Pezz, I know you get this question every year, so you'll be well versed in answering it for us! What's the go with registration and permits? How roadworthy do the bikes have to be (if at all)?

Might be tempted to have a crack this year, it always looks like a lot of fun!

That's about $5 a metre travelled under it's own power isn't it?

Hi Pezz

The ride this year looks great and I'm looking forward to it. I've signed up already. There looks like some excellent roads to be travelled between Sydney and Nymboida. Unfortunately the NX650 has been stolen so I have my eye on a KLR650.

Cheers,
Peter

Here we go again, the adventure continues! What crazy bikes are we gonna see this year I wonder. And where the hell is Nymboida, sounds like a hippy commune to me mate. Maybe this year our shirt colour should be tie dyed?

Time to break out the maps, roll on September!

Having just got a $1000 bike back on the road I've been looking for this.

Problem is the same weekend as the Far Cairn.

Maybe next year.
