I've talked about it a few places in the Ozsylum but I thought maybe it would be better to start a thread. I am planning to come over next February or so and will be there for a month to celebrate my 40th birthday. Plans are to fly to Auckland or Melbourne first, somewhat dependent on weather and ticket prices. In NZ I'll be stealing @MrKiwi's Transalp and in Oz I'll be stealing @nevgriff64's XTZ750. Then I'd like to go ride around. Ideally I can get over to see @lentil in Not Gunnedah , to @Russ in Sydney and otherwise... have fun and be a doofus? If I can I'll come with my camping gear. @troy safari carpente has already warned me about the drop bears. I have a million questions about stuff like routes, signals to other riders, road courtesy, etc. In the US, for example, we tap our helmet to warn oncoming riders of police traps. This sort of thing. Any local knowledge is appreciated.
