Are you guys going to wanna do maintenance or oil changes when you get here? Do I need to stock up on oil?

There's a couple of spare beds here if anyone wants them.

You beauty, more night riding on Cams Adventure Ride rated driveway, I admit I was nervous and asked him what the best line was. Left or right, turning my Headlight on helped a lot. Pitch black it would have been nasty, way better with the light on. And I was NOT DRINKING.

Hey Cam, might do an oil change, but probably easier to bring 3 litres with me.

Nothing an experienced off-road man like yourself can't handle, Vince. I do it all the time. :D
Although there is a much easier "wimp's" route for bikes that completely bypasses the rocky horror that is my driveway. Smooth going all the way, mostly on mown grass. See map below.

We had enough trouble finding your place in the twilight last time. The 2 with GPSs sat on the corner doing the head swivel for a good 5 minutes, till someone noticed the bush track on the vacant block. It was a good night though in the end, even if I made the rooky error of just a half a turn more on the chain adjuster. Loose, loose, bowstring tight. You would think after 30years I would know better.

Well, can we take the Bears round in Old IronBum and still allow you to participate in both ?
I mean, who will willingly fix other blokes bikes when they misbehave on the annual rally ?

Don't forget, Marty said only 3 beers worth of planning so far, so there as least  6 months of brewery production still left before it is finalised.
Unless of course the president has been formulating this route since the last time we visited Tassie.  Mmmm, maybe we should question him closely on Wednesday night

After my adventures in Europe this year I doubt I'll be able to do the fully Tassie trip either, but will likely provide some companionable drinking assistance in Bombala at least.  Not sure which pub you're talking about but we stayed at the one on the corner (next to the roundabout) this year on the Vicco's run and it was pretty bleak.  Would recommend "anywhere else".
Various 120, 180 and 360 Laverdas - and a single.
