Well now, that was, umm, different. Good read, and very interesting. Colorful would be my best adjective. Most of us think this way as we ride, but few have the balls to actually type it that way. Good report!

Take another trip, but don't change your style at all ! Fun read, I can relate to way to many parts of it... Enjoy the DR, I keep hearing great things about them. Looks like you live in a great spot to use it.

Love the Noob energy. Some blokes I know it would take 6 months of planning, $$$ spent on equipment and a backup helicopter to make that trip on a $20K BMW. I have the same breakfast, except without the coffee.
I have also heard the 'he'll be dead in couple of hours', but it was my mum, not my dad.

Long lost brother

Goddamn that was entertaining! Even if you never made it out of your driveway the first post was worth the price of admission. Thanks for the RR and look forward to the next.

Dubbo, Mrriwa, Dunedoo, Nyngan, Wilcannia, Arkaroola, Oodnadatta, Orroroo, Woomera, Andamooka. Fun read. Now I understand why Johnny Cash's “I Been Everywhere” was adapted from an Australian song.

Very entertaining

We sure hope to get another RR from you soon



Seriously your style of writing is just purely awesome.

Other than that, Ride Safe

Thumb Farkin Funny mate

Thanks heaps for posting that RR mate.

I've been sitting here pissing myself laughing out loud.

Mate, good on you taking on such a big trip first up. It's good to see a joker on a late night ebay purchase made wearing beer/rum goggles and with a sensible amount of gear on your bike. Most of the time you see blokes with $20,000 bikes with $10,000 worth of gear strapped on doing fuck all compared to your cherry-poppin' ride home.

Best RR I've read for ages mate, nice one! Looking forward to the next one. Boneman
