Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by godfather, Mar 11, 2005.

  1. g'day all easter is around the conner im thinking of taking a trip to corryong and then spending a few days there whilst there will do thredbo jyndabyne ect . we would leave friday return monday the last time we went we had a blast of a time frank allways puts on a good ride hopefully he'l have he's bike back in time to join us so who's in ill post some more details a bit later

  2. i'll be coming for sure "Manny" , was an amazing trip last time, wouldn't miss this one for the world :D
  3. wont be able to make this one, wont have a new rear tyre in time :(
  4. You seem to always be at that point you need a new tyre just before any ride, I think you need to get a better bike! even an across will do for you
  5. nah i just seem to ride to much since nov 2004 just over 20000kms :) and 5 rear tyres. Riding two up most of the time kills rears :(

  6. thats a shame was hoping you would be coming theres still plenty of time yet .

    Howdy there sounds awesome and if the rds are anything like this wkend gone to port campbell i'm sure mark will b up4 it2!good 1! :D
  8. Shabby, 20000km since Nov 2004. Wow, I'm lucky if I travel that in a year, let alone 3 months. No wonder you need new tyres...:LOL:
  9. Maybe, just maybe.

    What will be the deal with accommodation? Will it be at a Caravan Park, tents, hotel, motel????

    Do we have any idea, since Easter in only a couple of weeks away, the times we would depart and estimated number of people going that are not from this site????
  10. The caravan park at Corryong has cabins that are pretty good.

    Let me recommend the Pinnibar Motel in Corryong. For a joke, a friend of mine arranged an executive retreat for his management team and housed them at the Pinnibar. His services are no longer required with that employer.

    Part of the "Norman Bates" chain, this is a motel worth staying at just to be able to say you survived. DO NOT PLUG ANYTHING INTO THE POWER POINTS

    For food, try the "Pickled Parrot" at Khancoban (you don't believe that this place exists, do you...). After ordering a few things and being told that "the delivery truck doesn't arrive until next week", "the fridge is playing up" etc, I ordered a Greek Salad. Out came a green salad with large chunks of tasty cheese. The waitress peered into the bowl and announced "Its the chef's special recipe". At the next table, someone muttered "Try the Waldorf Salad" at which the diners (all Fawlty Towers fans, it seems) collapsed into fits of laughter.

  11. ok it will be motel and so far there are three 3 of us and a possible 4th we would leave friday morning at 8am from peter stevens dandenong

    i will put all the details up for the trip tomowro morning
