so rode the 250km into Perth early saturday morning...

headed down to Cottlesloe beach to find some accomodation for Saturday and Sunday night...

backpackers booked out for the next 4 weeks...

pub booked out

motel booked out

12 storey hotel booked out

hmmm... not looking good down here....

rode around a bit, and ended up getting a bed at a backpackers down in Fremantle with secure parking round the back..

for some reason i didnt originally want to stay in 'Freo',,, but it turned out to be a great place to be...

for some reason i have no photos of Perth..

spent 2 days wandering around Freo and the odd ride around...

even washed my riding gear

(it was a bit 'fragrant' after 12 odd days on the road in 40 plus degree heat...)


Monday morning was pack and arrange gear so i could drop off bike about 8am for its 10k service (even though i was upto 12,500kms ) and be in 'civies' to walk around town all day, then hopefully have bike ready about 2pm, change into ridin gear, and start the long haul east again...

got to the dealer, had a bit of a chat with the end result being them asking "if i wanted to wait for it?"

"how long will it be?" i enquire..

'hour n a half, maybe 2 hours..'

'sure, i'll wait' i grin... should get the miles down i wanted to today...

drank coffee, plotted a bit of a route and had a look at some bikes..




that g450x if a nice lookin bit of kit.... but the chain is on the wrong side

anyway, i was having a read, when i hear the familiar sound of the F800... but, uh, no, that doesnt sound quite like mine...

sure enough, a 'new' orange one...

a little while later..

i hear the familiar sound of the F800...

yep, that sounds like mine..

i stand up but no, that a shiney yellow one...

about to sit down again when i recognize my panniers...

bloody hell thats clean!!

anyway, the paperwork gets done, i get changed into my riding gear...and


gone...again..
