Probably because for the last few years that is where it has been.

Mita is not far away - and a good ride too.

Hey Dave, good to see someone has picked up the ball and is running with it. Count me out for this one, I will be just getting back to Bris from a 5 week trip to Tassie. As much as I would love to turn around and head south again, it just isn't going to happen this time
Bugger, I reckon I would have had a good chance of winning the Postie Tyre Changing Challenge, as you know I got a lot first hand experience recently

Enjoy the meeting
Glen

Dave: Thanks for taking on the organizing. I definitely plan to be there. If you want I could give a talk on riding in Mongolia. I live in Canberra now but lived in Mongolia 2002-2006.

Hey Maxi

Mitta Mitta

G'day Dave,

I will still have a broken foot, so don't really want to camp. Is there any accommodation at the Rally?

Thanks.

Ummm the meeting is in March .. will it still be broken then (about 10 weeks time)? Or are you planing on having it broken for the meeting?

Apart form the pub there might be some 'onsite vans' or cabins at a local carravan park ..
