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

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.

A Quickie.

G’day

On our way back from Port Arthur we came across a place within the Tasman National Park called the The Tasman Arch so we stopped for a look.

Port Arthur Tasmania

G’day

Port Arthur is one of those places that should be on the list of every Australian history buff.

It’s an easy 1-1/2 hour ride south-east of Hobart, with lots of scenic spots along the way. Once there, you could easily spend a couple of days just wandering through the ruins.

Just as well the entry ticket is valid for two days entry.

The Reward.

G’day

As is the case with any great adventure, The Pillion and I set off on Bluey one Sunday with no set destination and no deadline to work to.

We were just going to play it by ear.

Hidden Places

G’day

It’s fine to say “Hey! Lets head off to the black stump, its only 500km (300 mi)” but what do you see?

Endless black top, other vehicles, dust, maybe a wallaby grazing on the side of the road?

The Boat Shed

G’day

It was a beautiful morning, about 25°C (77°F), hardly any breeze, the sun was shining and not a cloud could be seen for miles: Perfect riding weather.

I donned a pair of Kevlar flavoured jeans, threw my leather jacket over a T-Shirt and headed of with The Pillion for the short ride up to Dove Lake at the foot of Cradle Mountain.

One of the most iconic natural attractions on the Tasmanian landscape.
