This Tour is designed for those wanting a great weekend riding, some excellent company and a course designed so that everyone can enjoy the scenery and the joys or riding your BIG adventure bike.
BIG Bikes accepted without question. Small trailies will be welcome should we have spare spaces but not gauranteed. BIG Bikes get preference. There will NOT be hard loops for Trailies.
This is a Tag Along Tour meaning Guided for the whole journey travelling at a modest pace taking in the views and terrain provided. There will be a mixture of Sealed Road, back country Gravel Road, Forestry Roads, Farm Roads and depending on weather, some more adventurous trails gaurantgeed passable by BIG bikes wih average pilots. So no silly biuke damaging terrain, no wet slippery hills or bogs and definitely no big rocks or the like.
Greg wilkl be guiding on his Transalp 650 which is a touring adventure bike so you can be gauranteed that there wont be impassible terrain. Beriong guided, Greg will be able to change the course as he goes to take in the conditions of the day. An example is that we may get to ride some smooth bulldozed clay tracks if dry but will be left out if they are not in perfecgt condition.
There will be some farm land with gravel tracks, a few paddocks (if dry) and lots of sites to stop at and enjoy. Thiungs like wind mills, water falls, caves, cliff views, villages, cafes, glow worms, beaches and much more to enjoy on the tour.
