  4. Awesome, thanks gal!

    Yeh I guessed alot of people went down, was wondering if anyone (..probably P platers actually since I can only go 93) wanna go with meh :LOL:
  5. That week will (probably) also be the week of the Annual Netrider Dinner; when you've done six impossible things in the day, why not do seven and go to the Netrider Dinner as well*

    (Usually the Wednesday night of the week)

    *apologies to Douglas Adams

    Phizog, a P Plate ride to Melbourne for the GP is eminently do-able, even on one day, depending on your level of fitness and your bike. Most riders break the journey at Eden and stay over there, but it's around a 15 hour trip via the Princes Highway if you stick to the limits and make regular fuel stops, etc.
  6. You're most welcome :)

    For future reference, moto GP and world SBK calenders can be found here
  7. I shall be going to PI on the Hornet this year
    and having an extended stay in Melbourne too.

    now to sort out accomodation...
  8. If my brother moves out in time ( he's been given his marching orders :wink: )
    you are more than welcome to stay at my place :cool:
