    Amazing opportunity for a Brisbane or Sydney rider!!

    OK I have an amazing opportunity for some lucky Queensland rider!!

    Let me lay in out really simple...

    1.  I am Perth

    2.  The Scarabeo 250ie I want is in Queensland

    3.  Adam and Adam want to buy vehicles that are located in Sydney

    4.  I need to get the scooter from Brisbane to Sydney cheaply

    5.  I will cover the flight from Sydney to Brisbane (seems to be around $80) for your return.

    6.  Adam, Adam and I will ride the scooters/car from Sydney to Perth :D  (hell yes!!)

    What do you get...

    An amazing riding opportunity!!!!!  You get the chance to ride from Brisbane to Sydney, some of the best roads in Australia so I am told... 

     

    As you can see the important part of our plan is getting the Scarabeo from Brisbane to Sydney, cause I really don't want to do that extra 900km on my own then ride another 3,800km another day later... my poor boney butt just couldn't do the trip!!!!!

     

    So I guess what I need to know who wants in on my plan!?!?!! 

     

    SIDE NOTE:  If a Sydney rider wanted to fly up and ride it back, I would cover that airfare too!!!  (Pete Gailey, looking at you buddy!!)   I could send across the touring screen for the rider to use on the way down too, which makes long distances way more bearable... I would just post it I guess... don't think it would cost too much!

     

    Plus the added extra bonus is that you will get to meet the adams and I!!! Stick out tongue

    The reason for the time constraints is

    1. I need to go in the school holidays

    2. I have to be back in Perth for a charity benefit concert I am organising in Perth on the 21st of July

    3. We think it will take about 5 days to get back to Perth but want to leave room for 6 in case we are really soft!

    Therefore we are thinking that we need to leave Sydney on the 15th of July.

     

    Any takers!?!?! :D

    Where abouts in Brisbane is the Scarabeo located? How reliable is the scooter?

     I can barely understand a word of it. It reminds me of one of those story-based mathematics exam questions: 

    " John has to travel from Brisbane to Sydney in five days. He has 300 quasar dollars. Each day will cost him 25 points of Aprilia sanity. If John travels at this current rate, with two friends named Huck & Finn, how many kilometres per litre will he complete before he must sit down & drink a crate of cold Cola bottles? "

    You eying it off too Paul? Big Smile

    I'm keen to do it, but I would need the scooter in my posession so I could leave Friday night & be down there Saturday morning. I have a function on Sunday morning I need to be back up here for.

     Wow, big ask hey !?

    Would certainly be a nice ride for someone who had some time up their sleeve. But not sure how much luck you will have. Mate have you thought about just biting the bullet and freighting over to the West?  I know of a few people who have used that e2go service (google it) and have been really happy with the price etc. Perhaps you could contact them and see how much it would cost to pack it up and get it on its way?

    They do a good Depot to Depot service that costs very little. I just sent an 1.3L Turbo 4cly engine to Sydney from Brisbane for $39 !!!

    hmm googling it comes up with a BBQ... pages and pages of BBQ... which is portable, so when combining E2GO with "transport" it is pages and pages on how easy it is to transport this BBQ... any more suggestions?!? :) 

     

    I think i will have to bight the bullet on this too cause transportation issues have arisen with the Adams... they are a little bit like nougat... SOFT! :p
