Take a look in Google maps on the map mode and you'll find a few BB's off the main drag. And some on the Timor Rd

Nice ride out through the John Renshaw Drive ( Timor Rd) past the observatory and that road takes you all the way through to Gulargambone or up to Coonamble. Both good stepping stones for Tottenham

This year we're also encouraging any K series BM owners to come along and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the start of the K. Special awards for K's this year also.

From an email I received as webmaster of the BMW Touring Club website:

At the 2013 Far Cairn Rally, Josh and Duncan will be showing the second Eye of the Rider documentaries Arrows of Fire

The film will be started after the awards, at dusk.
It is 65 mins long and it's quite a different film to Eye of the Rider.
The DVD will be sold in a mini movie canister tin, nice and rugged for the pannier ride home.
The P.A will be a lot more capable than previous years also.

Check out the video trailer

Arrows Of Fire 2013 Promo from Lost Highway Productions on Vimeo.

Going again this year and leaving Friday
And as smallengines said look out for wildlife or as I call it the three FFF,s
Fur, Feathers and Farmers. Last year had Roo's running between us, seen a few Emu's and the old Cocky (farmer) fulled out into the middle of the group. He has been driving this road for 60 years

Can't wait. See you all out there.

Good pics Baz

Good pics Baz,
how nice is it to be at the Cairn having a beer on a warm spring arvo barefoot in that saddling yard?
It has to be the best patch of turf west of the great divide...which is why the locals won't let us light a fire on it!
cheers, not long now!!
