[QUOTE=outback jack;21150996]Err sorry about the no show at the Seaview fellars, i got a better offer. But the general plan is Thursday, Townsville and CQ crowd riding to Barc'y via Lake Dunn or whatever way ? , Camp here at my joint, then meet up with Henry and Speedwobble at Isisford and hit Windorah Friday night. All those in favor say AYE![/QUO


i think the aye's have it.i will be in barcy thursday arvo. will take it easy across from clermont to alpha and on to barcy. how adventurous are we getting after isisford, (knees are still a bit average) and what sort of fuel range. i may even take off from birdsville on monday morning,as i'm running low on leave. see what happens.


cheers charlie.

Nothing hard this run, mostly all gravel roads and a few creek crossings. I'll be leaving Monday as well, won't have a bike ready in time i'll be in me ute.If your knee claps out throw the clacker in the back.

It looks like Barra, Dale and myself will need to leave Monday am as we all need to be back in Townsville on Wednesday, not sure about Kenno. We were thinking about going home via Bedourie and Diamantina Lakes/Old Cork Station to Winton, then track back to the coast on dirt. Fuel range may be an issue, 575km across from Bedourie to Winton! I Think that is 35lts for mine.

Sounds good to me- Spoke with OBJ tonight and discussed this very problem. We have previously arranged a fuel dump at Diamantine NP on our last Central West and Gulf Trip but this time round OBJ said he should be able to carry fuel in his ute. Me and OBJ could head East from Winton while the rest of you go north

Unfortunatley when the blokes started planning this run we didn't know the ashes were being spread on Monday, we all assumed it was Saturday or Sunday. Most blokes only have 5-6 days off which means full days of riding and not enough time to stay for Bill's ashes. But with Phill's blessing we will head out to Big Red either Saturday evening or Sunrise Sunday and say our Goodbye's.

On another note for our crew, if we are heading home through Bedourie/ Diamantina Lakes/ Old Cork. etc I need to know numbers to organize enough fuel to get us back to Winton.

Pete,

I was going to take my 2 x 12lt fuel bladders. I have not run the bike loaded before on any long runs so I am guessing that I will need an extra 15 lt. the extra would be a safety margin.

Let me know if there is room in the back or if it is better that we just take jerries to cover everyone.

good run with a bit of new scenery and a chance to catch up with of you wankers.

To clarify, the Run will the first weekend in may 4th and 5th. Monday will be the 6th.
At the begining I told everyone that monday was the evening out at big red.
