    Australian Caponord meet 2014

    Aussies, we can't let all the Brits have the fun. I'm suggesting we attempt to set up a meeting sometime in the new year.

    I'm suggesting we camp around Canberra as it has some great camping sites. Cotter, Blue Range, Kowen Forest etc etc. Also, It's reasonably central for most people.

    I was thinking that we could meet around late February or early March as it's getting a little cooler and slightly less chance of bush-fires.

    The last time we thought about all this we had issues with dates, so I'm getting in early and starting the planning now.

    Thoughts people????


    Mods (so far): Aprilia Rally Raid bars, bar clamp, seat, rear shock absorber, suspension link, front guard, headlight stone guard and lower chain guard. Replica RR sump guard. Leo Vince exhaust, Catfish Mapping. Mk2 Top fairing, painted to match. MG hand guards. Aprilia Dorso indicators. Honda CBR600 Reg. Autocom Intercom. Aux fuse block. H&B side racks. Trax Evo panniers. Tourfella top box Palmer aux bracket. BMW GPS quick release mount. Cyclops LED spot lights. Anakee 2 Tyres. And probably something else I can't think of right now!

    Yes big fella, they do have Guiness, LOL!!!
    I was thinking that we would base ourselves out of Canberra. Mind you I know of a few good pubs in Canberra!

    Anyway, I will go with the flow but I would like to start thinking about it now so I can book places to stay etc....

    Re base out of Canberra - sure I prefer "out", I am not really fan of towns. So camp out of town is perfect for me. Personally I also prefer to enjoy Guiness outdoor rather than inside any pub. Happy to ride to nearest "Guiness shop" and bring my panniers back full.
    Do you think could we camp on some place where they also have caravans, as option, in case of heavy rain ? Not to book caravans but to have them available if needed ?

    Caravan or Cabin is fine by me, I have Sleep Apnea and need a bed and power. The time of year is fine by me, I will just make the time to come.

    You have to have the hair to let down!!

    Ok Aussies, get onto the Private Messaging, get on the phone, send out the carrier pigeons and let's get this plan up and running. I will start looking around for an appropriate place to camp.

    I'm going to suggest the 14th-16th March as the target date. The 11th March is a public holiday in ACT so it might be an idea to stay clear of that weekend.

    Well, there's always the Tintaldra pub - it's got a few cabins out the back. When is the World Supers on at Philip Island?

    OK guys, I need some help here. I'm a sandgroper, not a New South Welshman and I'm not completely familiar with southern NSW.

    We have had one request for cabin style accommodation, is there anyone else wanting this? Or are the rest ok with tents and stuff? Karine and I will most likely sleep in a tent, but I'm happy to be directed.

    Some options are:

    Blue Range campsite: http://www.tams.act.gov.au/parks-rec...ing_in_the_act

    Old Adaminaby, Rainbow Pines Caravan Park. http://www.rainbowpines.com.au/

    Buckenderra http://www.buckenderra.com.au/accomodation.html

    and the list goes on....

    Have a look and tell me what you think......We need to book fairly soon.
