Jules here - I live about 90 kms from Melbourne, near the start of the Great Ocean Road. I have a 2001 VFR 800 which I mainly use for weekend rides and usually one 7-10 day trip away with mates over summer. The best trip we've done was around Tasmania, that place is just made for bikes and the locals are very motorcycle friendly.

Hi guys.
Been snooping around ST-N for a couple of years now.
New site looks great. Just had to register.
My name is Peter and I'm 52, from Brisbane and have been riding constantly for 35 years.
I currently ride a Blackbird which without doubt IMO, the best all round bike I have ever sat on.
I do not commute (never have), and ride weekends with as many overnighters I can fit in.
My wife Jane is a newbie rider and is currently riding a 2002 SV650S.
This is the first bike she has ever ridden and she has gained considerable confidence on it.
I've ridden it and love it. Thoroughly recommended for any new rider.
Heading off on the 23rd for a 3 dayer staying ay Yamba, then over the Gilbraltar Range via the Gwdir, staying at Tenterfield, then on to Brisbane on the Sunday.
Did this run late last year and it poured all day on the Saturday.
Promised to go again.
Well, enough about me.  Hello to all you Aussies.

Long Ride info is here http://www.freewebs.com/longride2007/index.htm

Becoming a FarRider info is all on the site and does involve either being a IBA (Iron Butt Association) member or having done a FarRide.

I am Sunshine Coast not Gold and its only 3000k from here to Katherine where I meet up with them to ride into Darwin on the 27th.

G'day all - Steve from Melbourne here and fellow Legend from the Long Ride.
Now, that turned out to be one hell of a 10000 km party!
I'm on a '04 ST1300 most of the time (don't drive a four wheeler) and other times on either a '75 Bonny or '58 Square4.
Last week took a run up to Brissie to catch up with some of the other Long Riders, and round the end of July will do another up to Airlie Beach - will give you a yell before I leave Davo - catch you on the way through if you're around!
Have fun and stay upright...Cheers, Steve

Welcome Argentum

Always good to have another Buell rider to chat to.  The only Aus site I've joined is ABR.  I don't see your name on the list but I guess I will when I look around more.

I like STN, the site works well and has a good feel.  Lots off feedback and lots of people.

Hi all! I'm from Murwillumbah in northern NSW Australia. I don't currently own a bike Sad (I don't know if that status is allowed on this forum!?), but I'm not a wannabe sport-tourer. I didn't buy my first car until I was 27, I just had bikes. My first 1000+ km ride was on a 91 model FZR600. Total distance for the day was around 1100km and around the 900km mark my concentration started wander. If you have ever ridden one of these bikes you'll understand why! That was on the way to the 95 Oz GP. Last bike was a 94 model CBR900RR, but was sadly sold to purchase a house Sad.

That one will do me for a while.

G'day All,

Peter here, from Tasmania.  I've recently purchased a 2004 Triumph Sprint ST... and love it.  So does my wife and we plan to get out and explore this great country of ours on two wheels after having already travelled thousands of kilometers in 4WDs.

I stumbled across this site a while back and was immediately impressed by the quality and breadth of discussion.  Guess I'll be lurking and reading initially, but will hopefully have something to contribute as I go along.

G'day! Spotted mention of this site on vfrd.com so thought I'd check it out. (apologies, this is almost a verbatim copy of my "new members"-post)

Tee and I often tag on to or even organise rides, so this seems a good forum to expand the network.

Are there many more South-East Queenslanders on here?

Here is a pick of 2 of my fav girls:

Thats cool too. though not too keen on droning down straight boring highways, always up for a big adventure Thumbsup. Time is always the biggest abstacle.

Having said that, Tee and I are thinking of taking the bike down to Tassie in January, when we have to be there for a wedding anyway ...

Neither am I, a common misconception.

Sometimes you got to ride the straight bits to get to the twisty bits. I have ridden just about every twisty bit in Australia. Yeah that entails riding some straight bits.

Yeah, same. For the Tassie traip we're considering driving down in the tin-top, trailering the bike along until Melbourne. Or even freight it down by train and fly to Melbourne (know some people in the train business).

Sure, if it was just me I would, I love to ride all day, for days on end, but I'm gonna blame this one on the girl.

The objective is Tassy, and I dont want her to be over it all by the time we get there.

Plus, she's been wanting to bring some stuff back from the parents place.... ah... Hang on!... it just dawned on me that that might be the real motive for the trailer thing.... Hmmmm! Headscratch haha

Correct - very very sad.

He was riding without his helmet int he last leg ( last few hours actually) of the 2009 IBR last summer and hit a deer somewhere outside of Spokane WA.  As far as I know no  one really knows what happened - at least i never heard definative information except his helmet was not on.

It was a crushing blow to the Rally and all LD riders.

RIP. Sad

G'Day all - Robert from Brisbane here

Have spent 15 years riding, mainly in SE Qld and NSW - then made the serious mistake of shipping our bike to Europe about 5 years ago - and spent 6 months riding there with my wife. Supposed to be the "Once in a lifetime" big trip.

We have now spent the past five years working like dogs and are currently planning to go back (for the third time) next year...

I pass this on to warn all the younger ones of the dangers of addiction  Smile

Cheers!

Hi Pete - I know my bank manager would like me to get rid of this addiction!

Seriously, the amount of fantastic roads, great food and wine, brilliant scenery, lovely people, amazing history and sheer motorcycle friendliness of Europe is hard to beat.

Where are you heading?  Are you shipping with Dave Milligan from Get Routed?

Cheers

Been a member of S-TN since last October and only just noticed this thread.  Rolleyes

Cantankerous old fart in Perth; ride a BMW R1150RT.

Leaving in a week to ride east -- Adelaide, GOR, Snowies, back again. About 8500 km over 3 weeks and a coupla days, with Dearly Beloved (otherwise known as the Leader of the Opposition) on the back.

Should be fun.

My only "concern" for touring is that I prefer shaft drive, so I don't have to mess about with chains on the road. But that's just me.

George here from Sydney. Done most of my long distance travel on the boat which is now for sale since I've become addicted to riding. So far mostly weekend or long weekend trips around NSW but who knows. Wife prefers the boat and I'm happy to solo on the bike.
Been a while since anyone posted here but I just joined the forum.
