    ADELAIDE, HERE WE COME!!! :sneaky:

    :peace: :peace:

    Time for something a little different:

    -A 5 Day Trip along Great Ocean Road to visit Adelaide and return via Grampians.

    -As well as the trips into the High Country and the weekenders down GOR, I thought I'd put together a ride just that bit further west so we can explore some of what South Australia has on offer for us keen bike riders :applause:

    -Places en-route include Mt Gambier, Cape Jervis, Birdwood, Hahndorf, Strathalbyn and Halls Gap, not to mention the many towns along GOR and the beautiful Limestone Coast. The Adelaide Hills are a well known mecca for riders and I'm eager to get back there after a long absence.

    -We'll see the Big Lobster at Kingston SE, have the opportunity of crossing the Murray River on the Wellington Punt, visit the national Motor Museum at Birdwood, also a stop in the German settlement of Hahndorf while we're over there is on the agenda.

    RIDE LEVEL: 4 See: https://netrider.net.au/threads/ride-level-ratings.159944/#post-2611160

  8. WOW!! You guys really are keen! :D Close call hey Blackadder, looks like you're in then. Thanks for payment too.

    Wednesday 4th will see us exploring the Adelaide Hills region RRdevil, so you're welcome to come and meet some of us fellow Vic riders and spend some time carving up the corners, assuming you live in the area and you've got the free time to do so (y)
  9. Payment received, thanks Desmo :riding: (y)
  10. Well this trip filled up quick with lots of "interested" people!:eek: The planned itinerary sounds like a hoot, great roads, great scenery and some great company.(y) But only if you put your money down before someone else does. :sleep:..... MONEY SENT:whistle:
  11. Yep, will be a good one Brusa, still playing around with the route to make sure we get as many of the best bike roads covered as we can in the time we have over there, not forgetting the interesting places to stop at too:playful:

    Thanks for your payment, the opening post has been amended to show this. Only 2 places to fill now :D

    Thanks Fred, all good. That fills the last spot of 6 riders. If anyone pulls out there maybe someone willing to take that spot.
