Smile Snowy Ride 2011

Okay gang, it is time to consider your accommodation for the 2011 Snowy Ride again. First weekend in November is the date. Last year was a blast with over 3000 bikes in town at once. Help children's cancer research with your entry. First prize in the draw is a Honda VFR 1200.
Let's do it.

Re: Snowy Ride 2011

Hi Colin... didn't get to meet you last year, but I plan on going again.
Now if only I can convince Kerry to get back on the bike... though she might car it down with her friend.

BTW, I'll ride pretty much past your place tomorrow by the looks of it!
I'm in Hervey Bay now, and tomorrow (Friday 20th) booked to get a new rear tyre fitted at Coastline BMW... hope to be there mid morning so they can get onto it so I can continue on to Byron Bay by end of day.

cheers

You should give me a yell. PM or email me one day. I will be attending the Childers Multicultural Festival on the 31st trying to sell my old photographs near the ISIS club if you want a day out and some fun.
BTW, Have you ever tried Tor Motors for your repairs/service? Closer and he is a specialist on BMWs particularly the LTs. One LT bloke comes from Biloela for service.

Re: Snowy Ride 2011

Hi Col... just read the last post.
Went straight to Byron after getting new tyre, spent 2 nights there now back in Sydney.
If I'd been spending longer up the Sunshine Coast I would have called!
Will have to wait to Snowy!
cheers

Re: Snowy Ride 2011

Hey Guys,

Who's going to the Snowy Ride this year? I'm staying at the Snowman Apartments in Thredbo and it would be great to catch up.

Re: Snowy Ride 2011

Well, for those of you who went had a fun time... we did too and have already booked accommodation again for next year... for 4 nights this time so we get an extended break, same apartment.

Bob, great to meet you & Lynn (hope I got that right?). Hope you have/had a great trip down through Vic & back!

Almost got home without incident..... almost...... but it was only minor
