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.

eBook: A Riders Guide To Touring Tasmania

G’day

I’ve been harping on about Tasmania quite a bit over the last 12 months or so, and rightly so too, it’s a great place to visit and explore.

Especially if you’re on a motorcycle.

Never Leave A Rider In Distress

G’day

Many states in Australia have adopted lane filtering laws.

Each state has their own rules, and while much is similar, there are some differences in what you can and can’t do legally. Which in turn can cause some confusion for interstate riders.

What’s legal in Queensland may not be in New South Wales or Victoria.

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.

Riders Stories.

G’day

You might have gleaned from my posts that I don’t give too much away about myself. Strewth*, it took me 2-1/2 years after starting this blog to fess up to my name!

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.

I Wish.

I wish you blue skies and sunshine, a smooth winding road.

I wish angels to watch over you, where ever you go.

I wish you much love and laughter, with those you hold dear.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

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.
