    And then what happened?

    Thanks for taking us along.

    Gear question: How do you like your Biltwell hemets? The Gringo S looks interesting to me with the folding shield. No vendors in my area to try one on.

    Where did everybody go ? Youse Two's OK ? Maybe you are in the outback with no access to the internet? OR? So excited about being down under you are looking to stay, finding employment and housing?

    The last update I'm seeing there was in mid-June, almost two months ago. Was that the end of the trip?

    Hey fellas - sorry for falling off the face of the earth! We definitely have some more content to add here. We're back in the USA (we only had a month in Australia unfortunately) but we have some pretty sweet shots we'd still like to share. I would have posted sooner, but we got swamped with a revamp to our website that we're still working through and then a health scare (Kris just had surgery yesterday, actually - everything looks good though!). It looks like things are on the upswing though and we'll get back to our regularly scheduled program as soon as possible!​

    Have enjoyed your trip reports and saw your names in Claude's shop. I'm soon to pick up one of his rigs on a R1150S and head for Labrador and Newfoundland and then I to San Diego via Michigan before heading back to NZ.
    Good luck on the op recovery.
