We had a bike trip night the other day and of 8 people who said they were coming, including John for whom the night was chosen, decided to not turn up. So it was basically just me.
I voted (and it was unanimous) that the trip be moved to July 2007, start on a Friday morning (to be able to meet the train on time) and finish in Darwin (to make it cheaper/easier to fly out and get the bike(s) out)
I now have to order my BMW R1200RT shortly so I have it ready by the day I leave. Theres a 3 month wait but I want a 2008 build so timing will be interesting. I also want to be able to get the 1000km service done before going.
