Here’s an idea.
Anyone interested can send me AUD 3,000 and organise a plane ticket to land them at Melbourne International Airport on June 1 2023.
I will buy and prepare a CT 110 for them to do a lap of Australia with me.
The bike will be registered in my name and at the end of the trip I’ll sell it in the condition the rider left it and return that amount to the rider.
If you don’t trust me, don’t bother replying.
If there are multiple participants, you only ride the bike that’s assigned to you, that way you cannot blame anyone else for mistreatment of the bike and subsequent destroying of it’s value.
Currently AUD 3,000 is about the minimum you’ll get a good one for and any costs incurred over that amount to get it trip worthy and registered will be additional. But remember, if I can sell it for say, $2,000 after the trip, that’s what you get back.
Looking at my bike, you would not know it had ever been around.
I would be suggesting an anticlockwise lap following my tracks from 2021.
You will NEVER get a chance to ride around Australia cheaper than this. If you decide to abuse the bike on the trip, you’ll need to remember that you are destroying it’s resale value, so no one loses but you and. 75 kph is the cruising speed…(It worked for me..)
There will be a support vehicle this time…(I didn’t have one..).
Now I’ll field any questions from those who want to find holes in the idea for a certain period, but after that if you haven’t committed, you won’t get a response.
No PM will be answered, all enquires are on the open forum on this thread.
Anyone who sends money will need to publish it on the open forum so it is common knowlege what I have received on your behalf. I will run an account for each participant detailing what has been spent.
Once numbers have been finalised and monies paid, I will organise accomodation for a couple of days between arrival here and departure, to allow for purchase of any gear you might want.
I will collect you at the airport on the day.
It kind of occurred to me that a large proportion of the members value the friendship as much as the ride and on a little bike like this, there should be no realistic barrier to anyone.
It would be the trip of a lifetime if you’ve not been to Australia before.
Anyway, start picking holes in the idea and I’ll give you the solution.
