My wife and I are coming from NSW and are about to book the ride.
We're doing the car hire thing for a week prior to the ride and will drop the car back to the depot (266 Great Eastern Hwy - claimed as 3km from airport) on Thursday morning.
We were going to book the BV bus from the airport to MR but are happy to help fuel etc if someone wants to share costs of the trip. We'd need to be picked up at the car drop-off depot around around noon or so.
Our bikes will already be at MR via alternative transport so our luggage would be the usual pair of 20kg soft bags for the ride PLUS a suitcase with the added gear for the car trip. The case is hard and measures 26 inches square x 12 inches so please keep that in mind.
If we can tee something up by early next week to suit everyone then fine. Otherwise no worries as we'll book the BV bus when we fill out our entry.
