  3. I'm planning on going up for that. I'd most likely ride up Friday night and would want to stay till the end of the racing on Sunday. It's only 2hrs back to Melbourne so it's no big deal.

    If I don't go there is no shortage of hotels in Benalla. There's also a caravan park and backpacker's accomodation. If I do go, I can sort some more ideal accomodation for you Dan. :)

  15. damn.. didnt even think of that caz.. bit of a planning blnder on the motorcycling fraternity too.. go to the pink ribbon ride.. you arent supporting aus sport.. go to the races, you arent doing enough to support australian cancer sufferers.

    im still gunna go to the races, been planning it for a long time. might have to donate a bit more to the pink ribbon foundation on the weekend though.

  16. re Winton Supers

    I'm sure I'll be going since we just live at Benalla. I know sometimes they allow camping at the track and there are heaps of pubs and motels in Benalla.
    If we go it will be myself and mate on 2 Waterbottles. The racing at Winton is fantastic unless it's wet. Would be good to meet some other netriders.

  17. Thinking about this one seriously, might just have to see if I can get out of few things.
