The idea of an Aussie LT Riders "Meet and Greet" weekend has been kicked around for some time, and now its finally going to happen.
This year a Meet and Greet weekend will be held in Thredbo on the weekend of November 10th, and will coincide with the annual "Snowy Ride" in support of the Childrens Cancer Research Institute.
for more info on the Snowy Ride.
While the Snowy Ride has always been a fantastic annual event on the motorcycling calendar. This years event will provide the opportunity for all Australian owners of the legendary BMW K1200LT, to come together and enjoy a weekend of friendship, good company and no doubt plenty of laughs, in one of our countries premier motorcycle touring regions.
This will be an excellent opportunity to meet up with fellow K1200LT riders from all across Australia, and participate in an LT owners group ride on the Saturday around some of the fantasticly scenic roads that the Snowy Mountains region is well renowned for.
Plans are underway to arrange a group dinner on the Saturday night, which will cost approx $40 per person for a 3 course BBQ style meal at one of the local resturants in Thredbo Village.
Most people that have thus far shown interest have indicated they will likely be staying in Thredbo on both the Friday and Saturday nights (the 9th and 10th of November). So there will be plenty of time to get together and chat over the coarse of the weekend, and to re-acquaint old friendships, and perhaps make new ones.
Accommodation in Thredbo over that weekend does tend to fill quickly, as the the Snowy ride usually attracts some 3000 + people to the region for the weekend. If you intend coming, its best to book your accommodation early and avoid dissapointment.
This should be a great weekend, and hopefully we'll get a good roll up of Lt's for the weekend. The more the merrier it will be!
If your interested in coming along please add your name to the list below, and advise if you'd like to take part in teh group dinner on Saturday night.
Finally, I'd urge everyone who intends coming along you take a look at the snowy ride website, and in particular, enter the ride itself.
The entry fee costs $50 and that enters you into a raffle to win a number of possible Honda prizes, but more importantly, the entry fee goes to the Childrens Cancer Research Institute which is a great cause.
Hope to see you there
