"I don't give a fark what you do" - I'll take that as approval to attend this one. Will hopefully plan it well enough to get to the cairn for a pic before settling in for an evening of argeling (stolen from mid 80's Qld BMW jargon - shit, showin me age again).

Dirt Surfer is dragging me over the unsealed approach, can't wait.

Catchya.

Can anyone advise of the condition of the road between Willow Tree and Merriwa (Merriwa-Murrundi Rd, also shown on maps as Willow Tree Road). I haven't been able to find on the Net if it's fully sealed or still partly unsealed. Google maps sattelite view show it as unsealed in the middle section. I've ridden the Merriwa-Scone Road (good fun) but not this other road. I'm wondering if its suitable for the K1100RS or best left for another day to do on my DRZ400S?

Also need advice on pub (cheap) accommodation (preferably with somewhere safe to park the bike) in Merriwa (or Denman), Bathurst (plan to go to the motor museum), Wellington (want to visit the caves) and Coonabarabran (Siding Springs Observatory and the Warrumbungles).

Groomed dirt road - easy going no probs on a K. Causeway dips - lots of cattle on road when I went through and some great tar twisties in the middle - a short cut highlight for me when Newelling North.

Here tis



Pie shop in Meriwa was good too.

I've already threatened Max with gross intoxication to get the detail of this yarn from him and, no, I won't be asking for a demonstration.

Catchya.

I will be leaving Nowra Friday early, went last year and it's a good rally

Baz if you have not seen the "Cain" yet? You are missing out on a BIG "WOW" factor by not doing that

Last year went over to Nymagee for lunch and then back to the rally, it was a good lunch and ride

Anyone going Friday and want to meet up?

Mallee

Probably be @ Parkes about lunchtime, well that's if we don't get waylaid somewhere, doing the tourist thing on the way up
Anyway, at this stage - thinking of trailer being towed, yep I know I'm a sucker for punishment but if ya don't try - ya don't know,

'White Beast' for this trip, & Strudy will travelling with us too, good combo to spot - white XS650 Special towing a trailer & a dark purple Harley - both with old farts on board!!!!
Cheers

Far Cairn Rally

Still need advice on Coonabarrabran accommodation. I'm concerned about truck noise as the pubs all seem to face the main street. Don't particularly want to be woken by a B double going around the roundabout at 3am.

Merriwa Pub

Pegasus, Merriwa pub knocks up a pretty good feed, but I haven't stayed.
Put the Bylong vallley way on your route, which comes off the Golden Hwy at Sandy Hollow.
Can't help with much else, sorry, but it will be good to have you at the rally.
cheers
