Wouldn’t it be great if there were free motorcycle specific touring guides complete with maps and places of interest dedicated to each region in Australia?
There are of course several websites around that identify great riding roads, but these don’t seem to mention other attractions that may be of interest to motorcyclists visiting the area.
Many touring guides are geared to auto-mo-cage drivers and don’t seem to list the great riding roads we as riders tend to seek out, or motorcycle friendly towns/ regions too for that matter.
Additionally, any motorcycle specific guides you do find are thin on the ground, or are difficult to find.
In the last 12 months, in Australia at least, more and more towns and regions are declaring themselves “Motorcycle Friendly”. But how would you know if you couldn’t look them up someplace… like the internet for instance?
Planning is all part of the fun. Right?
So without further ado, and in an attempt at making the looking part a little easier, I’ve created a new link at the top of the page entitled “Australian Touring Guides”.
The page will by no means have a complete list of all Australian motorcycle friendly towns, regions or guides, but it’s hoped that in time it will grow to become something worth while.
I take no credit for the publications. Many are written in conjunction with local motorcyclists their representative organisations or local councils. I have credited the authors where known.
If you know of an Australian town, region or guide, and can provide a website or PDF file for same, drop me a note by clicking the “Got Sumik Ta Say?” link at the top right of this page.
I’d appreciate your input.
