6 days away, left Adelaide 2 up with my 16yo daughter on the back along with another Suzuki Bandit Australia (SBA) forum member, fuel stop at Pinnaroo, another at Piangil in VIC where we meat another forum member who joined us to the 1st night´s stop in Hay.
At Hay we met up with 3 more SBA forum members, 1 a side car all the way from Tasmania, and another 2 bikes from Melbourne (1 of the a 2 up couple)
A special plug to the New Crown Hotel who left their ute in the open for the night so we could have our bikes locked up in their shed.
Day2 was a easy cruise to our destination in Parkes, plenty of stops and plenty of time to have a look around, once in Parkes other forum members from Victoria, NSW and Queensland started to roll in
Day 3 was a couple of short group rides, morning ride to Forbes and back to visit a motor museum, in the afternoon we all met outside the local Suzuki dealer for a photo shoot, we were also joined by the dealer, Joe Kinsela on his 1200 Bandit for a ride out to \"The Dish\"
Day 4 everyone went there separate ways, the 1st to go was my riding partner from Adelaide who had to be home a lot sooner than us. We rode through Grenfell and Temora and on to Naranderra for the nigh, A special mention to the Murrumbidgee Hotel, both bikes locked away in the drive through bottle shop for the night.
Day 5 was the straight roads to Conargo, Deniliquin, and onto Swan Hill where we spent a night with another SBA forum member.
Day 6 was spent at the local Pioneer Settlement before a afternoon ride to Pinnaroo where we were looked after again, this time a park in a carport at the back of the Golden Grain Hotel.
