    Learner/Pillion friendly Great Ocean Rd overnighter trip to Port Campbell :playful:

    Hi all, this is a ride I've put together for the newer riders amongst us who would like to head off in a group for the weekend along the awesome south west coast of Victoria, taking in the views of the ocean as we go, before ending the day at scenic Port Campbell.

    While aimed at newer riders, more experienced ones are still encouraged to attend. The pace for this ride will be fairly easy with numerous regroup/rest/photo points along the way, and while taking in most of the GOR, an inland route is also incorporated into this trip. Anyone wishing to pillion is most welcome also.

    RIDE LEVEL: Touring 1 intermediate. See: https://netrider.net.au/threads/ride-level-ratings.159944/

    WHEN: Sat feb 7 and sun feb 8 2015

    MEET: McDonald's Western Ring Rd, Sunshine West (inbound) See: http://goo.gl/maps/E5h9G

    TIME: 9-30am for 10am sharp leave. (Pick up point Waurn Ponds BP at 10-45 for any riders from that area) See: http://goo.gl/maps/C07Ap
    Please post in the thread if you are meeting at Waurn Ponds.

    Port Campbell via GOR and some inland route :woot:

    ACCOMM: Fully self-contained units at Port Campbell.

    COST: $50 per person. Your attendance on this trip is confirmed once you have made payment which is via direct deposit into my account, PM me for details please. 2 double beds are available, first in best-dressed :)

    This will be a casual, easy-going type ride where each rider is expected to ride within their limits and the given conditions at all times, at a pace they feel safe with. Everyone wants to arrive at the destination at the end of the day in one piece and relaxed, happy with what they've just achieved.

    Corner marking and TEC (tail-end Charlie) will be used on this ride and will be explained at the rider briefing prior to departure.

    WARNING: As it is expected to be hot this weekend and with all the excitement, to avoid becoming dehydrated and fatigued, please make sure you have access to and consume sufficient fluids, and top up as necessary. Regular stops will allow for this.

    For your own benefit and that of others, please ensure your bike is in good condition by giving it the once over and checking items such as, but not limited to, tyres, fluid levels, chain/sprockets, lights, etc. Make sure the controls (brake, gear and clutch levers) are adjusted to suit you, which makes for a much more enjoyable, and safer ride. If you don't have the skills or confidence to perform these duties please have someone qualified assist you.

    OK peeps, who would like to be part of this trip??? 046.

    I'm interested for the missus and I but I'll need to seek permission!

    Edit: damn, apparently we have a wedding to attend that day! I suggested we might still make it and arrive in our gear...she wasn't amused...

    Have fun you guys!

  17. Please note, when making payment you need to state your Netrider nic in the "reference" section, not "GOR trip" or some other name.

    Hope you get it in time. Fingers crossed.
