  4. omg, breakfast at port macquarie :shock: this can't be good.

    You know i'm gonna need regular smoke and red bull stops dom :p

    Just one thing, as much as we love the old pac dom, maybe best to give it a miss this time, at 4 am it'll be freezing cold, slippery as hell, foggy as hell, pitch black, and still animals around. Might be worth givin that one a miss, up to you.

    Cheers

  5. not a bad idea paul. ill do a recce run one morning soon at a similar time. i keep on forgetting its winter ie mist and dew :cry: but paul i think you just had brown pants after the southern recce run! wombat ahoy! PHHAARK :p :LOL:
    the route is fairly flexible, im not that fussed. obviously the oxley and thunderbolts are not negotiable, their aint no point in riding 4 hours each way without doing em :grin:

  7. I would avoid the Old Pacific Hwy at that time for reasons already stated, it will also save a bit of ride time overall.

    It's a huge day, I'm thinking about it :? :?

    Might go up Friday night to Newcastle, and meet up Sat morn with other Novocastrians.
    Mustard???

  15. guys, heres an article on fatigue, if you havnt done some serious long distance stuff, its probably worth a look.
    http://www.gtr-aus.com/Fatigue.pdf
    ive posted the link with permission from dave, founder of the farriders group. they do lots of long distance rides, entry level is 1000kms in 24 hours, and they are asscosiated with the Iron Butts association in the states i think. the common goal for the farriders is riding long distances for the pure enjoyment of it.
    im hoping to participate in their next ride btw.
    check out their website at:

    well worth a squiz.
    thanks to dave for allowing me to post the link!

    cheers

  16. Arent you a little out of place anyway :LOL: There will be one or two from sydney, tag alongs from Port Maquarie and Newcastle.

    Still not sure if i will make the ride anyway, the dealer still has not rang Hyosung for the warranty work on the gearbox and he has had my bike for two weeks now :mad:
