    I'm in Townsville for the next week, and will hopefully get some time off soon. I'd like to get in a ride, but have yet to find a source for a rental. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance!

    Here with the Army on exercises I presume ??? You buggers are everywhere :D

    You could try one of the bigger bikeshops, Rising Sun Honda (Bowen Road) they might help or at least maybe point you in the right direction.

    Thanks for the info. I've heard of Road Runners? Can't find them in the local phone book.
    Any suggestions on roads?
    I've been here for two weeks now. Townsville seems like a nice place. Hit Magnetic Island all day yesterday. That was fun...what I can remember, that is.

    For a town that thrives off the extra income that the defence force injects into it over a short period of time you seem a little unhappy with its presence.

    Well, I'm back from AUS. No bikes to be found to be rented in the Townsville area. Harley dealer didn't even have a demo.
    Thanks for the help.
