  1. Travelling from Sydney to Jindabyne and spending 2 days riding the glorious roads of the NSW and VIC snowy region. This is a must see area for any enthusiastic motorcyclist. Australias best roads, and wonderful scenery.

    If you have wanted to see this area, but don't have anyone who has been there to guide you, this is your chance.

    Sydney to Jindabyne via Braidwood, Cooma.

    Jindabyne >Kosciousko National Park over Selwyn>Elliott Way to Tooma>Khancoban>Alpine Way to Murray 1 Power Station to see how the hydro works>Thredbo and back to Jindabyne.

    The big one, we will ride one of the best motorcycling roads in Australia, the Bonang!
    Jindabyne out on the Snowy River Way towards Dalgety>Monaro Hwy to Bombala>Delegate rd to Delegate and then onto the legendary Bonang as we cross into Victoria for the magnificent run into Orbost.
    Return via the Princes Hwy to Cann River>Monaro Hwy to Cooma, then back to Jindabyne.

    Jindabyne to Sydney at out leisure, but I prefer to leave relatively early to get home without wasting the whole day doing so.

    If you are a noob, I will look after you, there is no need to fear being left behind or pressured to speed, ride dangerously.

    I will arrange excellent accommodation in Jindabyne, very central to the service station and both pubs for meals etc. Lock-up garage for the bikes, laundry and kitchen facilities etc

    Bedding consists of;
    2x Queen
    2x King Single
    2x Trundle (single bed size)
    I am taking 1x Queen, and the remaining bed options are on a first come basis.

    Cost is $450 TOTAL (not per person) divided equally between those that attend. There is no provision to only attend and pay for 1-2 nights as that just makes it difficult, so everyone will be paying for 3 nights and it's your choice if you don't stay for all 3.
    There is provision to sleep 8 if there are 2 couples sharing beds, and 6 people if there is no sharing. I will base initial cost on 4 people = $112.50 per person nett (meaning if you pay via Paypal, you need to send it as a non-commercial payment or eat the fees yourself). If we get 5-8 people going, I will refund the difference to you.

    The ride routes can be changed to suit conditions and weather, so it is flexible, but priority will be given to the Day 3 route.

    If you want to secure a bed, you will need to pay your cash to me via Paypal or direct credit upfront. No payment = no spot, unless I know you personally.
    If you book a spot then can't make it, you are free to sell/give your spot to someone else, but I will not manage that transaction, it will be entirely up to you to facilitate that.

    Why do I do it this way? Because it stops time wasters from putting their hands up and taking all the spots, only to pull out or not show at the last minute causing others who would have gone to then miss out.
    I have done it this way a number of times with great success, and if you don't think I can be trusted with your $$, check my posts and past ride threads, but don't message me trying to tell me how you feel uncomfortable paying upfront and try to arrange some payment plan, it isn't going to happen.

    You will need a reliable bike and a willingness to ride it.

    Check past rides I have listed, feel free to contact those who have attended if you need to be assured.

    Lock me in for this ride, payment has been sent via Paypal.

    NB/ I will have a bed this time since I had the trundle last time:)
  16. Ride Now Full - Nil places remaining

    Got your payment (I think). PM me with who you are as I know we discussed the Oxley ride back in July, but there was no further correspondence. I might be low on iron and my memory is fading....sometimes I need a kickstart!.

    Got it thanks Steve :)

    Now that all places are full, there will be a small refund as the initial pricing was based on 4 people. I prefer to just give you guys cash when we get there if that's ok?? Why? I hate Paypal, and don't want to support it!
  17. I have another route in mind for Friday 30th. I will start a PM conversation and include everyone and we can discuss there..

    If the weather holds out for us, this will be an excellent weekend, and I'm looking forward to sharing it with such a great bunch of guys again.

    Never mind about telling me who you are. Im an idiot. It will be great to have you along again mate ;)
  19. Very much looking forward to this and I apologise in advance for my limited fuel range, although I just might be riding a different bike this time:sneaky:.

    That's fine with me, whatever is easier. Maybe keep it in a kitty for a round of pizzas or something like that.
    All Im concerned about is the weather gods smiling down on us and me being able to sneak away from work.
  20. See if you can at the very least sneak away Thurs afternoon and take Friday off ;)
