motorcycles, travel, friendship, respect… I may drift off into WTF-land at times so hang in there.

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.

Well, it’s about 2-1/2 hours ride from me, but I consider it part of my backyard because I can easily do a return trip in a day.

I Can See Clearly

G’day

In last weeks post, Take The Long Way Home, I mentioned arguing with myself about why I don’t ride the scenic route home from work more often:

The days were too short during winter for this route (but there is a slightly shorter alternative I retorted, you’d be home before dark. Easy)

Take The Long Way Home.

G’day

When I worked on the Gold Coast I was lucky enough to have an early knock off on a Friday, usually around 14:30.

This allowed me to take any one of a number of routes home through the Hinterland.

Cormorant Bay

G’day

Its been years since I’ve been out to Lake Wivenhoe for anything recreational.

Years ago, when we lived in Browns Plains on the southern outskirts of Brisbane, we spend quite a bit of time out there just running amok with the kids during the school holidays.

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.

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.

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.

Travelling Companions.

G’day

I was going to write a blow-by-blow account of our vacation, but decided against it.

What A Trip It’s Been.

G’day

To quote Toad (Hugh Keays-Byrne) from the Aussie movie Stone (1974):

“What a f#$ken trip it’s been eh?.”
