Bonang Hwy - 31st Dec 2016

All right you Lot!
Planning a hardcore ride to Orbost on New Years Eve. Stay the night then ride the 'nang on New Years Day, stay the night then ride home the next day.

Jenny and Randall are coming from Maryborough to do this. Anyone else is welcome. Just need to organize your own accommodation.

Sydney gang can meet up at Kiwimat's place probably around 9am. That gives the Gosford/Newcastle guys time to get to the starting point if they are keen.
You guys in Canberra/queenbeyan/Bungiedoor could make an easy day ride to Orbost in a few hours.

Moggsy, just an easy 4 day ride there and 4 day ride back, no excuses.

Anyway, exact times to be determined, but that's the general idea.

Cheers
Doctor 350

Re: Bonang Hwy - 31st January '17

This is a 100% legit. Randall and Jenny are staying with us in Wangaratta before New Years Eve (Randall is going to clean out my liquor cabinet) and then we will travel to Orbost for New Years Eve, ride the Bonang on New Years Day and travel home the next day after which Randall will finish off the contents of the cabinet. Everyone's welcome.

Can`t make this one sorry John. Will be up that way though, we`re taking the van up to McKillops Bridge leaving boxing day. Looks like an awesome road but definitely not for `K`bikes.

Sounds good mate. I'm gonna pick your brains about that trip. Looks like somewhere I'd like to camp and take the dirtbike
