I Ride To Rediscover The Part Of Myself Lost To Just "Existing".

Are You Listening?

G’day

I’m a motorcycle tragic: There I’ve said it.

If I’m not riding bikes, I’m talking about them. If I’m not talking about them, I’m reading about them, and if I’m not reading about them, I’m attempting to write about them.

But maaan… er… or woman as the case may be, what do I do when I can’t do any of those things because I’m… gasp … driving, or worse, wirkin’?

City Under Lights.

G’day

Its’s not often I head in to the city for a night of fun and frivolity, but when I do, I take photos.

Allow me to introduce you to Brisbane; my adopted home town.

Mooball Roadhouse.

G’day

When you’re out on a ride, you inevitably end up at a pub or café/ restaurant some place where you can relax for a bit before hitting the road again and continue your journey.

Some of these places have live music, like the Hotel Brunswick, while others, like the Tumbulgum Tavern have nice views of a river, beach or valley.

The Sow And Piglets.

G’day

If I said I stopped and saw The Sow and Piglets, you’d probably think I was at a farm stay or something. Right?

Earlier this year I did just that while riding along the Great Ocean Road towards Port Campbell.

And what a sight it was.

Cape Otway Light House

G’day

You might remember a few months ago The Pillion and I had an epic adventure down Tasmania way.

No need to stress, I’m done flogging that horse. I would like to share some history and photos from another part of our trip though, one that took place on the mainland.

Share The Good Times

G’day

In 1982 a couple of blokes were sitting at a pub in Toowong downing an ale or three while admiring their bikes.

One turns to the other and says. “We orta start a motorbike club”.

What’s He Gone And Done?

G’day

Dunno what happens in other countries, but in Australia there is no such thing as drivers ed at school. Instead, when a teenager reaches the ripe old age of 16, they are eligible to sit a 30 question road rule theory exam, and, if they pass, they are “awarded” a learners drivers permit.

TUTORO: Top Up, Turn On, Ride Off

G’day

I have never, in all of my riding career, used a chain oiler, I’ve always relied on cans or tubes of chain lube, which cost anywhere between AU$14 – AU$24 depending on what brand and size I bought.

For the most part both methods worked well and were relatively easy to apply – except for the chain paste which was a good idea,  but tedious to apply. Nowhere near as simple as the spray can.

That’s a Wrap – Three Weeks Just Isn’t Enough.

G’day

A few weeks ago I did a guest post for Dan over at Daily Bikers. It’s the second time Dan has asked me to guest spot for him, the first was waaay back on August 28, 2014 with this little gem.

This time around I thought I’d re-post my piece here for those of you who haven’t had the opportunity to see it.

Cataract Gorge – Natures Fury.

G’day

Most Aussies would be aware of the deluge that Mother Nature unleashed on the Australian eastern seaboard in early June, where it seemed no city or town was spared along a 2000km (1250m mile) stretch of coast line.
