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

NSW

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Alpine Way.

G’day

On the return leg of our trip to Tasmania earlier this year, I had the opportunity to ride a road I’d heard a lot about, but never ridden.

Far Too Medicated.

G’day

This week I’m not going to post anywhere near one thousand words. I’m far too medicated to write anything coherent.

Mooball Roadhouse.

G’day

When you’re out on a ride, you inevitably end up at a pub or café/ restaurant some place where you can relax for a bit before hitting the road again and continue your journey.

Some of these places have live music, like the Hotel Brunswick, while others, like the Tumbulgum Tavern have nice views of a river, beach or valley.

Programming Has Been Temporarily Suspended

G’day

Due to technical difficulties with local Internet access, programming has been temporarily suspended.

Zero.

G’day

First off, I’d like to apologise for some double posts you may have been receiving in recent weeks.

As I alluded to in a previous post, I’ve bought myself a Tablety/ iPady thing for our trip away, and I’ve been learning how to drive it, using the last couple of posts as test beds.

One limitation that I’ve noticed was that if you use the App to draft the post and then schedule it, all is good. BUT! If you then make some quick mods on a computer or laptop and don’t sync the app with the new computer version, you end up with double posts.

This shouldn’t be a problem once we’re under way, because I wont have access to a computer. If it does happen again, please accept my apology in advance.

Half Dozen Shops, A Pub And A Bit Of History

G’day

Have you ever gone out for a ride and stumbled across a place you thought was just perfect?

Not perfect because it has all the mod-cons, or because it has a great view or anything like that, but because it’s a sleepy village with 1/2 dozen shops, a pub and a bit of history.
