    Scooter Adventure Weekend Away

    Hi Folks, Want to keep this in folks minds for a little Adventure northish

    Date and time to still be advised.

    Planning to ride from Brisbane to Sunshine coast, then guided tour round S/C hinterland then Camp at RPMs for BBQ tea then Home next day.

     No major luggage will need to carried by any scoots especially the 50ccs  (planning to accomodate a route that will suit yous) unless you happy carrying personal gear ie clothing, toothbrush,  All camping nesscessities will either go up the day or so before or accompany us in a mother vechile. I'm thinking the mother vechile will have a trailer to pick up any scooter that's fallen by the wayside.  (to and from)

     I know it might sound logistically heavyduty but if enough folk pull together, it'll be great.

     

    Ya just can't beat having a good tinker.....

    I would be in for sure if, but knowing my luck the baby would be born when I was half way to Rob's!

    Maybe an annual event? Enduro Event from Anthony's @ Kingscliff to Rob's Sunshine Coast Hinterland Hideaway! Via the Backroads for the 50's!

    Re: Scooter Adventure Weekend Away

    Yeah, thanks for the thumbs up guys.  Been thinking of something like this for awhile.

     Just need to nut out a few things first.

    Firstly the route and I'll do a little reccy first to make sure there ain't any surprises in store for 50s or any scoots for that matter.

    RPM, if you're here, Would you be able to help me out a little in that area? Mainly the roads closer to your end of the journey.

    next the support vechile I still would prefer to have one, and preferably one with a trailer.  I don't want anyone or anyscoot to be left behind no matter which direction we're travelling.  Also to have a vechile that can bring any extra heavy or bulky items. For example a guitar ( for singing round "campfire") Any instrument players?  I can bring the guitar (I'm crap at it so don't even think of asking me) but I might dust off my tin whistle.  Also eskies for the meat and other BBQ necessities unless we get rob and shell to get some things together for us. I'd prefer not to burden them with this but if folk were to chip in about $10 or so, we could get that to them a week or so ahead of time.

    also a handy assortment of tools, fluids (human and machine)  Tents and sleeping gear

    Ummmmm.....just trying to thinking of anything else. Anyway, if anyone has any ideas/suggestions regarding the above. Please let me know.....

    Riding along motorway, doing about 100 on speedo (85 or so ground speed)...Power dropped off, picked up, dropped off, picked up, dropped off and LOUD rattle appeared.  Motor died, would not turn over.  Turns over with spark plug out.

    First time it has been on a motorway in months.  Funny thing is while I was stuck on side of road, I saw a red G-Max 150 cruise past with the traffic at 100 or so ground speed, which my scoot would be going flat out to do (equates to 120 on speedo) - how come they get to commute on the motorways and mine blows up?  Damn!  Oh, saw a blue 250 go past as well...Dang...

    So me scooterless with a $4000 boat anchor right now...And hating it!

    Enjoy your run guys...

    k-star...i can give you a hand mapping out a route (from Bris northside towards Caboolture, etc) by checking out some of the possibilities (being that i am based just near the southern end of the redcliffe bridge).

    In that case I'll supply the ear plugs

    5 weeks & counting, But Karen is tiny framed & is under very close watch by the OB (quack) now.

    So I think if it is before I will have to give it a miss, but saying that, an early Autumn adventure next year could be on the cards!
