Thumbs up

I wish I could go.
I saw Troy at a recent track day in WA and he was doing big wheelies all down the straights with a passenger on the back . Very awesome to see. He also broke a few pit lane rules like doing burnouts and wheelies in pit lane .
He still has it.

CB4265 and I are mates and have already discussed the event.

I will be there and we have already booked motel rooms in Taree for Friday and Saturday.

We should meet up and put faces to "names"

I have been to the first two and blown away by the racing and how laid back it all is.

Just do it if you love racing.

Are you blokes riding there? Or is that a challenge with access to the track? The "wonderful" tropical weather we have at the moment with afternoon storms every day might have buggered off back to the deep North by then. If I'm up in the Hunter I'd love to do Thunderbolts Way on the way there.

This has been on my want to do list all year, my timing actually might work for once. I hadn't thought about Friday in Taree but that would make a lot of sense.

We are driving - the bike is not big enough for the suitcase required for 2 nights by Gabrielle! Two others will probably be on one bike, but may jump in the car with us to get to the track.

The only road to the track, Old Bar Road, is narrow and the traffic backs up a long way. The new lane splitting laws may make it easier on a bike. Last year a copper at the gate booked a bike rider for passing stationary cars held up in traffic queuing to get in!

There is parking at the track and is all dirt, so if riding take a puck or squashed beer can for the side stand in case it is wet.

We have booked into the Highway Motor Inn Taree, via booking.com.
About $100 when we booked for a twin room or double room per night.

G did heaps of research, read reviews etc. and as we know we have to drive to the track, she chose it so we would be a walk to town for pubs etc.

There is food at the track, but there were no beer tents either year.

Thanks for all the handy info. I'm trying to sort out if my member for the opposition wants to come along also. Then I'd be stuck with the cage. Dunno what it is about sorts and the need for clean frocks. Plus I'm not sure if a day of flat track and noise is up her alley. Having said that she did get up early to watch the MotoGP and Moto3 with me all year. She is a blast with the "Oh my God" when things get on or over the edge. Freaks her right out.

Who else is going? I'm going, Ableduc is going. I am driving so I can take gear if anyone needs a pack horse.

Would rather be riding but will sleep in car Saturday as no camping available.

Americans keen to take Troy Bayliss Classic

Troy Bayliss Classic boasts incredible line-up - Cycle Torque Magazine

Supposedly Mr Stoner is a no show, unless organizers are being cagey.

Clerk of the course has told me otherwise, but not listed here.

Oh well, we'll see
