  3. count me in, that is if I can find warners bay, and the maccas there lols, I know the maccas on the pacific highway at swansea (just before the seperated dual carriageway heading to central coast) and I know how to get to the John Hunter hospital - any chance of some directions from either of these spots? (are they even close?)

  4. If you are at John Hunter hospital, head south on the newcastle bypass and take the hillsborough Rd exit. Turn right and follow that and you will come to a shopping area. McDonalds can be accessed by turning at the service station and driving through, or if you miss the servo turn, go to teh roundabout, turnround and then into the macas driveway.
    If coming from Belmont, easiest way is to get on teh bypass again, and folow that to the hillsborough rd exit, and turn left instead of right.





    Regards, Andrew.

    If anyone is thinking of coming, I need to know tonight, as I might book a table to be sure we get a feed and need to know numbers.
    Remember, it's open to all experience level riders, I wil be taking it east for everyone!

    Regards, Andrew.

  12. Its not a huge trip by any means - Im about 50clicks north of newcastle, It took me about a hour to get to warners bay I guess (but the roads were really wet for a while) not sure how long it took us to get to morriset from there cause i was havin too much fun :)

    On the other hand, using the F3 I was home in 45minutes from leaving the pub, including a fuel stop.
    Luck was definatly on my side rainwise, managed to stay just ahead of a decent drenching near where I live :)

    Time to crack a tinny or 2

  14. Yeah, was great to actually meet other Netriders, wasn't sure if they existed! Dunno about the Wollembi run, will have to see what's happening at home, we have a new puppy and I have my licence test next saturday(fingers crossed!).
    Anyone in Newcastle should come along next time...if you have only been riding around newcastle itself, you are missing out on what teh region has to offer.

    Regards, Andrew.
