Hey that sounds like a plan...bit longer than a weekend though...

I am planning on around Aus trip Mar 2009, so this would be a good test ride up that way...

Hi there everyone,

Sorry - been away on work biz and very busy in the clinic at the moment -so haven't been on "FJR's" for a while.

YES - thank you fastdevil - it's on for young and old for SoONT 08 - we have plenty of camping space, concrete floors and beer here, and there are pubs and caravan parks in town that have camping space and cabins.

Thought sometime in June/July is best. Heavy tourist season as far as accom is concerned, but everyone moves on and it's just a matter of booking early.

As a family, we are more available and flexible from about June 20 to July 20-ish - as it's school holidays for John and the boys. I can apply for leave basically any time during that stretch.

We have been exploring some rides and places on the bikes - a few good tourist things to see and do. I rode past a small MB group touring through the other day as I was on my way to work - we all waved etc, and I was sorely tempted to wag work for the day and go touring with them! :P

We've been really enjoying the FJR riding - sure is good. We sold the YZF 1000 and I saw it going into town the other day - the new owner is enjoying it now which is great.

SoONT08 - go for it - see you then.

cheersssss

It's Official!
State of Origin 2008 will be in Kyogle, Nothern NSW.
A date to be decided sometime around April - May.
The agenda is much the same as previous SoO meets, meet and greet on the Friday
Saturdays ride will be taking in some of the best riding on offer in SE Qld, over the mountains, across the dales and some very impressive "private roads", about 450km's worth!
Then of course the offical dinner Saturday night.
Myself and David will slip down to Kyogle and check out the accomadation, and will post details here as soon as we can.
There will be the official "limited edition" T-shirts made for the occasion.
So, lets get this party started

Kyogle? Didn't this start out as the Northern Territory?

Have I missed something here?

No Jwm - the NT part was a bit of a jest. At this stage SoO has always been held more or less mudway between Sydney and Brisbane, but next year it will still be between those two cities, but will include great roads in SEQld. I have led a few rides on this loop, and everyone ends with a smile on their face.

Exact timing will be decided. I have initial looking at Kyogle accomodation, which is OK but just not near anywhere convenient to eat.

Watch this space.

hmmm....Geraldton would be 1/2 way between Sydney and Brisbane (technically speaking), but somehow I don't see you guys wanting to make that an SoO

Here for a good time, not a long time.
