Australia Here I come

Yes; I get to add another country to my list of countries I will be riding a motorcycle in AUSTRALIA. How is this you ask? well I will be attending a conference in the Gold Coast and decided to rent a bike and do some touring. Initially I was going to go one way from Gold Coast to Sydney but decided to do the round trip Sydney Gold Coast Sydney riding an estimated 1,840 Km.

I have rented a BMW GS 1200 for this trip since I would be alone, and the GS gives good millage to the tank. I am worried though about riding on the other side of the road, I remember that I did drive once in England but that was year ago.

Also I will be arriving at 6:30 am on the 8th of March from a long flight and picking up the bike at 9:00 am then riding 865 km in one day to the Gold Coast, I have no idea in what shape I will be once I am there? I intend to have the blog updated regularly for all to follow.

Welcome to my Journals......

Ever since I have been traveling on two wheels I haven't written any thing down regarding where I went, who I saw, or how I did it.

Most of my travels are with friend who I thank for letting me tag along, learn, and grow.

This journal will have two aspects the first a record of my future travels, and maybe some back dated ones. And the other will be my thoughts about traveling on a motorcycle, what gear I have tried, and what methods I feel are the best for traveling.

Please feel free to drop me a note regarding motorcycle travel, I will be happy to reply.
