RIDE DAYS ONLY / Newcastle Big Boys Toys Expo 24th & 25th August 2019
« Last post by noboot on 12 July, 2019, 09:35:06 AM »
The Newcastle Big Boys Toys Expo is on the 24th & 25th August (see their face book page and web site https://bigboystoysexpo.com.au/ This is a Hugh expo (actually 6 Hugh Expo's in the one location) with over 20,000 people expected to attend over the weekend.

I have arranged with the promoter to secure 10 Spots (with only 8 spots left) for our Spyders / Rykers for the Show N Shine on the Sunday 25th August. We have our own Category which is on the entry form.

So the first 8 people to Private message me will be allocated a spot. I'll email you an entry form and you return it to me for processing. NOTE the "bump in" and "Bump out" times on the entry form.

Your entry to the Show N shine entitles you to free entry to the Expo. There are only have 8 Spots left so first come first served.

Nice to see I'm not the only one that's not scared of mounting the steed in inclement weather.
Sounds like a good investment!

Ridng Gear / heated riding vest
« Last post by stu on 10 July, 2019, 07:36:42 AM »
ok so we are all getting older and i find the cold is really getting to me.plus im a skinny bugger so not much meat on me,i recently bought a lithium battery powered heated sleevless vest.
thin enough to wear under riding gear or use at any time some heat is required.its a ororo brand from amazon aus.its got three heat settings and what i like is it has heat in the back the two front pocket area and the collar.a lot only heat the back.
im yet to test the battery life on full charge,doing that this morning.it was about 140.00 all up.so as a all purpose vest or a heated one this might be the goods for the warmth challenges.

hopes this helps the chilly rider.

update.it got 5 hours on low setting and with it unzipped and letting some heat out it was still very nice.it does have a usb charge port so it may be able to ride and charge.but not sure.

And the camp ground at Eucla is mostly limestone so if you wanna drive in some tent pegs stay 13 km east at Border Village.

...  Any idea what's wrong with Nundroo and Balladonia?...

I agree with Dutchy. Camping in Nundroo is (was, I haven't stopped there for a while) cheap, but the campground is sand and the showers were bore water.

I took a motel room there once and stayed dry, but that was about the best part of the stay.

It has new owners who seem to be trying, but they have a long way to go.

Plenty of options in Penong, but it is a bit short. Yalata seems to have finally got the old fibro building demolished, but I didn't see a sign offering accommodation when I passed.

Balladonia is better than Nundroo, but still sandy.

Balladonia has a very small ablutions block for the camp ground tho there is/was a transportable unit a bit to the north iirc.  The motel section and roadhouse itself is ok.  Nundroo is past its prime - Penong, a bit further east, is very much better.

I'm planing on an 8 day trip from Penrith to the Muster site  and will use some of the reference points that have already been made.

More than happy to meet up and join the convoy along the way. Although I'll be trailing the Spyder as I just couldn't do a trip that far riding.

I also hope to meet up with Merlot (Russ) along the way also.
