Snowy Ride 2010??

Anyone going to the Snowy Ride 2010 this year?
I thought I would break in my return to riding with a big one. I will be leaving from the Sunshine Coast of Qld. possibly picking up a couple of other BM's along the way.

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Yep, but only if Kerry & I can't get away from work to do the big "round the island" trip....
Ithink my work will screw up that plan till next year.

Ideally we'd end up at Snowy on the way home at the end of the run....

I look forward to catching up with a few folk from the forum whilst there. We should fly a flag or something!

I will post more as we get closer.
I am stopping at Grafton & Oberon, NSW on the way down and camping at the Lake Crackenback Resort for a week whilst there. Accommodation could be an issue that weekend as I took the last room at this place.

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Hi Colin
Probably can't make this one this year, due to starting new job end of April and also having to move to Brisbane. Just don't think the board would appreciate me disappearing for a week so soon after starting.
Planning some long day rides over Easter if your interested. No idea where , but thought if the weather is good , might go up through Kilcoy, Sommerset, Towoombha, Warwick and back via Beaudesert etc . maybe the Lions road.
let me know if your interested.
regards
Paul

Sounds like a temptation. I will have to check with my wife and see if she wants to come or am I allowed out alone as I just bought her all new gear yesterday and she may want to try it out. I am working at Eumundi Markets Saturday though.
I will be in touch.

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Hey Guys,

Have managed to talk my better half into her first "multi-day tour" on our '09 LT. We are leaving Sydney on the Friday, staying in Canberra overnight then on to Thredbo on the Saturday / Sunday. Leaving Monday for Eden then on to Ulladulla for my 55th and home to Sydney.

Hope to catch up with some fellow LT owners in Thredbo.

Cheers,
Bob Mc

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Bob, where are you riding from? I'm at Little Bay, and heading down on the Friday also, but probably straight to Thredbo.
Add your mobile number so we can meet up down there, or maybe along the way...
cheers

Chris,

I'm leaving from Cronulla. Probably head down the coast then up Macquarie Pass and across to the Hume.

Cheers,

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Ha, ha.. you gonna take the missus on her first long trip on the LT and doing the twisties! Love it...
Went there last weekend with a mate on a Ducati, I lost him on the way up... and he was behind me!

I'm only 5 mins from the start of the M5, so its a highway trip to keep my partner Kerry happy to get out of the traffic....

Maybe we'll catch up along the way... will try to remember to give you a buzz closer to time.

cheers

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

G'day Guys,

Been away for a short while.... (You last visited: 11-14-07 at 8:13 pm New Posts 233,623) Got a bit of catch up reading to do........


I have the Snowy Ride brochure on the desk next to me and am hoping to make it this year. I haven't been since I caught up with the Aussie team a few years back and we got together for dinner on the Saturday night.

The clutch started to slip on the bike about 12 months ago on a weekend sprint to Coonabarabran and when I got home I parked it in the corner and started to ride one of the other bikes and it's been sitting in the corner ever since. Time to make it go again......

I'll stick it on the bike hoist and start heading towards the clutch and if I can get it finished in time I'll head down this year.

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Hey Daz, welcome back.
Good luck with the clutch job, hope you make it in time!
We haven't had a "gathering" since that last dinner.... at least no more than a quick beer/cider and chat. LT's have been few & far between.
Hope to see you down there.

Thanks Chris,

It'd be good to catch up with a few of the guys.

I am yet to find the "definitive guide" to clutch replacement on the site but as soon as I do I'll be on my way.

Got the bike up on the bike lift and started to remove tupperware. From what I've found on the site so far I need to make a few tools as well. Should be an interesting exercise overall.

Did you watch John Zeiler's videos of tearing the bike down to do the weep-hole drill... that goes a long way I think to showing the job being done.. click

Re: Snowy Ride 2010??

Whoever's going... hope to say "G'day" next weekend.
Have a safe trip if you're heading there.
Weather forecast says fine, but max 8-9 deg C each day, down to 1 deg C overnight... and I've just come back from a week surfing at Lennox Head (mid 20's...) :-)
