24th works for me, thanks Tommy.

4 of us (adventure virgins) did a test ride to Northcliffe to learn some lessons (and we did)

1200kms all up, saw some amazing places, incredible tracks and had a lot of fun (as we were learning)

We rode sand, rocky outcrops, single track, hard pack with green slime, winding 4x4 tracks, gravel roads, creek crossings, amazing forests, spectacular views and a few sections of bitumen.

2 guys were on enduro bikes with sling over type luggage and one on a DRZ adventurised bike.

By my rough calculation

60% my BWW was as good as anything else (better once we got over 90kms per hr)
30% my bike was fine but I probably would have had more fun on my Beta
10% my bike was sh*t, not enough suspension and limited clearance with a center stand.

Definitely a 4 day ride I will call in the future (if anyone is keen)

I'm thinking I might set my tent up at the park just up the road. After the last pub with its rock hard mattress and gigantic pillow and the smoke alarm beeping all night the old air mattress ain't so bad after all.

The twin room sounds like a bargain Tommy but after a couple of beers I will probably snore and annoy someone so I just rang and booked one of the single rooms.

I phoned the Nannup hotel they have 3 twin rooms with 2 single beds each for $90 a night or 2 singles up stairs for $65 each on the 17th
I would be happy to share a room and split the cost
