Force Ride Oz 2008, Where?

Where will it be guys? I'm happy to go anywhere, although crossing the Nullabor might be a bit far. Drove to Cairns once, 3300km, in 2 days to ride Cape York though, so I'm keen wherever.

Steve

Looks like Louee & the Sunny corner are going to be the winners.

I think as long as we can all get on the piss together somewhere it doesnt really matter where it is held. Louee got a bit boring for some of the guys after the first day so if Cafey & some of the other crew could arrange some loops that were in a 100km vicinity, & have a different one each day, it might spice it up a bit. Anyone that's not licensed can decide if they want to sneak in the group.

Everyone's backyard is the best riding place but the reality is Louee/Bathurst is about the most central location for everyone involved. It also provides the best low cost accomodation that we can all stay in one place.

Just my $2 worth.

Your'e right Wildman,

Sunny corner sounds great, but it is a hell of a long haul from KI, either way, I'd be making a trip, I think a gathering like this is too good to be missed.

Thanks for the input Taffy. When I was trying to get last years together with Steve & Ozrider, the biggest challenge was to get someone to say "yes" to any bloody thing so lets make a decision.

Lets make Cafey in charge of the whole thing cause he came up with the idea !! Just kidding, but if 3 individuals can put their hands up for leading a day ride away from &/or back to Louee using the surrounding area's the event is practically organised. Good oportunity to bring the girlfriend/missus so they can recon the vehicles back to base camp or refueling something. Last year we got about 22 peeps to the ride & most were travelling without partners. The Shearers quarters hold 40 so it wouldn't be hard to book the whole thing now & start arranging the rides around the accom that is booked cause we got to start somewhere. Dont book any Louee park rides unless you want to go for a ride but maybe Steve & Cafey can pass on some of their suspension secrets whilst we use the park to 'test n tune' our bikes.

Just another couple $$ worth, I'm in no matter where it is.

OK executive decision !!! Louee it is. Hope that is OK with most people ???
It would be good if we can start the ride in Bathurst and have a great ride to end up at Louee. I can guarantee you will be begging for a beer by the time we get to Louee. Non riders or riders who wish to go straight to Louee and ride the first day there could transport vehicles from Bathurst to Louee. Unfortunately Louee is approx 30km from any other riding so a transport section is required to get to other riding. We can work that out later.
How's this sounding so far?

Cheers
Garry.

Ah at last, a decision has been made. I have been a bit pre occupied getting ready for the Safari so I have stayed on the sideline this time.
All you have to do now is put up with a few wingers I guess that it wont suit, but hey everyone has had plenty of time.
