:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: very jealous :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ...... :lol:

You'll have heaps of fun...... just be careful...... the Victorian polite farce know you're coming and will be out to get you. The NSW guys are not so bad. ;)

:mrgreen: You'll love the destination too...... Victoria is a beautiful place to ride (we used to take as many back roads as possible to stay off the major highways).

Just remember there is a zero tolerance policy in force re- speed limits etc and they have koala cams in gum trees.... :lol: ..... which is pretty crazy when the MGp brings huge tourist revenue into the regional areas.

I never had any issue but I was careful not to be noticed as a target ;)

The racing has been brilliant this year....... and PI will be superb - I'll be watching the telecast so you better behave eh :lol:

Thanks for the advise Aussie Dave

If you are watching the GP on the goggle box.Keep an eye out for me. I'll be the one wearing the KTM tee shirt :D
As for speeding NZDave keeps the cops busy up in the North Island and away from the South Island 👍

Get well soon too

Should be an awesome trip DaveW, I've been to the Moto GP on at least 5 occasions, last few times we hired a fancy camper, stayed the 3 days at the track, then toured to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road, watch our for those cops, Kiwi's get double the fines, they hate us i tell ya, but if you don't pay the fine you will get a free trip home, with the other exporties. Have fun, pics and story to follow. :D

How'd you go Dave-o-W.... :lol:

The telecast was fan-bloody-tastic....... and it didn't rain....... what a race! Maverick was the man, but what about Alvaro Bautista on Lorenzo's GP18........

Hope you had an excellent adventure........ post your photo's of the Camp Ground Crew for the world to see how sophisticated us Aussie's are...... :lol:
