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

Travel

Evans Head.

G’day

The other day while travelling between Sydney and Brisbane, The Pillion and I decided to take a detour off the Pacific Highway for a rest break.

REBLOG: Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads

G’day

I often harp on about how good the roads and destinations are around these parts.

History, people and the surrounding scenery come together to make most places special in their own way.

Never Mind The Bollock(ie)s.

G’day

I’ve come good on a threat I made about three weeks ago.

I don’t normally make threats, but on this occasion I saw no other way to deal with the problem. A tune-up was required.

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.

Taken For Granted

G’day

Have you ever noticed how you tend to take your local area for granted?

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.

20th Annual Ipswich Toy Run

G’day

The Lockyer Branch of the Ulysses Club of Australia hosted its 20th annual toy run in support of Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. We missed last years event as we were committed elsewhere, but this year we cleared our calendar’s and made sure we could attend.

Cabarita Beach

G’day

Last Sunday The Pillion and I took off down to Northern NSW yet again. I’m not sure what draws us to this part of the world, the roads, the scenery or something else.

It doesn’t matter though, because every-time we head down that way we find something new to enjoy.

Sovereign Hill

Cześć!*

I dunno what it is about Australian history, but it really fascinates me.

I mean, Australia was colonised by the Poms back in the 1700’s; has had significant influence from the good ol’ US of A in the 1800’s, and in the mid 1900’s we became multicultural, accepting all and sundry from places like Italy, Greece, Poland… most of Europe really.
