G’day

Sometimes you make decisions based on what you know at the time, hoping they are the right ones. Sometimes these decisions are made months, or years in advance of when results are expected.

A Trip Down Memory Lane.

G’day

I arrived home from work today to find a box full of old photos strewn all over the floor.

Yep, you guessed it, The Pillion got bored and was reminiscing about the old days.

Motorcycle Touring… And Planning… And Such…

G’day.

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.

eBook: Ballina Base Motorcycle Touring Guide

G’day

Last week I presented an eBook about touring Tasmania on a motorcycle.

This week I thought I’d share another eBook, this time a little closer to where I live.

She’s Buggered Mate.

G’day

Well, it appears my (t)rusty old computer has carked it.

The manufacturers smoke has escaped and I’m damned if i can get it back in.

So, as I’m not keen on publishing from my phone, I might be a bit quiet for a while ’till I can get it fixed or replaced.

Watch this space. 

Cheers

St Bernard’s.

G’day

I’ve mentioned previously that I really enjoy the ride up to, through and around the Mt. Tamborine area.

No mater which direction you come from, the ride is always enjoyable.

Goodbye, Farewell, Thanks For The Memories.

G’day

You might remember the photo I put up a couple of weeks ago contained the words in the title of this post (complete with the spelling errors!).

Since then a few of you have asked for an explanation, on that and a couple of other posts I’d put up recently… so here ’tis.
