  1. Ok, Sue (suzyq) and Lou (chickbabe) are going to be in Victoria on the weekend of the 14th and 15th April and we are planning to ride along the GOR. As neither of us have been along there before, (well, not for many years and definitely not on bikes!) we would appreciate some company and guides... :biker: especially to get through Melbourne! :shock: Tramp64 (Dave) has already kindly offered to come along.

    We want to do the touristy thing and take our time and taking lots of photos along the way, so we want to do it over the weekend, staying at Warrnambool?? maybe, overnight :beer: :beer:.

    We will be leaving from the the eastside *waves at Woodsy*. I did try to put this up in the event calendar, but cos i have no place to leave from.. it got rejected... :oops: so if someone with some local knowledge can organise this as an official event maybe?? Ta.. I'll buy you a drink or a coffee at one of the many coffee nights we propose to attend. :grin:

    Thanks guys :)
  2. When are you planning on turning up at my place Sue? i'll try and scam a couple of days off work

    I wont be able to go the whole way with you but i'd be happy to escort you through the city.

    Any one between the city and say geelong have some spare floor space, we could do southbank coffe on the friday night and then may be head geelong way after that if theres some spare sleeping space some where.
  3. :) Woodsy, I'll ring you soon :) umm but we will be there on the Thursday.. the 11th I think and heading back north on the Tuesday afterwards, the 16th..

    Yeah the geelong plan sounds good.. I've go no idea of distances/time in Victoria.. thats why we need guidance :)!

    PS we don't snore!!
  4. Well I dont think I do, never been told I do. :shock: .
    So looking forward to this.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cool: :grin: :grin:
  5. Can hardly wait to get my bluddie license back, so as I can do this kinda stuff with ya's.
  6. MVrog when do you get it back?
    We are hoping we get a few more riders to join us along the way
  7. 9 weeks
  8. Ok, organised the Friday off, i'll work on acomodation.

    Woo Hoo Gippy group, whos up for a ride on the Friday?
  9. Definately up for a GOR sightseeing ride if you don't mind me tagging along. :grin:
  10. Yeah I maybe up for this too.... I'll be able to tell you in a day or so
  11. Lou and I are starting to get pretty excited about our adventure. We can't wait to attend at least one of the legendary coffee nights!

    Woodsy: Thanks.. yeah guys.. we want to meet as many of you as possible.. so ride on the Friday??

    Hopper: As far as we are concerned the more the merrier! Everyone is welcome.. and if you don't wanna sightsee.. that's fine, we'll meet you at Warrnambool Pub! Whoever's there first buys the first round!! LOL :beer:

    Mach: Hope you can make it!

    See you soon
  12. Seeing how things are at that time, I may join for a few hours or something :grin:

    Can't really make that call until that day, I wake up each day different! :oops:
  13. Work won't give me leave for Monday and Tuesday, so I thought Stuff it, I'll go anyway!

    I'll be in for this ride, are you going to coffee on Friday night before hand?
  14. There staying at my place thursday night, i'm taking friday off and prob take them for a ride around, may be up arthurs seat and then Friday coffee.

    Is there any one can help them out with accomodation friday night, close to the city, they can stay at my place again if they like but it means heading off to GOR fromm gippy on the saturday.
  15. I'll see if I can put a good word in, but don't hold your breath, the people I live with arn't the most accomating. Sue and Lou *may* have to share a futon.
  16. Hehehe. I'm sure sue and I will not mind if we share, well we are sharing a pub room and other accomodation :LOL: . Thanks for that, I'll even sleep on the floor if there is some really kind netriders out there. :) .
    13 days to go \:D/ :dance:
    Now if only I could work out these bl**dy saddle bags.!!!!
  17. Thanks guys, yeah Mach we dont mind sharing.. I promise i don't snore Lou! :LOL:

    Woo Hoo! 13 days to go and counting...
  18. I'm sorry Ladies, the people I live with are being their typical un-accomation selves.

    (Mach stops being cynical for a second or two) So does anyone else have some floor space spare?
  19. Has anyone set up an itenery / meeting point etc yet?
  20. ^ Yeah so um... Like what's the plan?

    Sorry I can't help out again :(
