David we will see you there late Fri afternoon. Will need a cold after 2 x 800k plus days. We have 6 in our group so far. See another thread in Australia/New Zealand forum. Maybe we can talk about those secret back roads when we meet.

Newbie needing a ride

G'day boys,

I'm in Sydney and would love to come to the HU weekend (23rd to 25th Feb '07) but I currently have no means of transport to get me there and back!

If anyone knows of anyone who'd be prepared to put an extra 85kgs on the back of their bike for the trip down, I'd be extremely grateful and happy to contribute for costs, fuel etc and shout a few cold s too.

Please let me know if you can help or are aware of anybody who might be in a position to.

Many thanks

Rob

Exclamation Important Info

We will be sending a message to all, but thought I would give you the heads up here first :-)

Please bring enough cash with you to Tintaldra for the weekend, the Hotel doesn't take cards!!

Not sure where the nearest bank is, but have a sneaking suspicion it could be Albury/Wodonga!

I'm sure you can correct me on this one David.

Thanks,

Sian

I think Red Bull and Cone of Silence are in the same boat. Sounds like I am talking in riddles doesn't it, but both seem to be stuck for transport. Maybe you can get in contact with each other and find a solution.

No rowing I can assure you - but I've definitely got no transport options so might have to miss this one and get to the next one.
