Arrived in melbourne on a very hot day 30c and tried to find the ferry terminal as GPS was not showing how to get there. They treat bikes well in melbourne you can park on the footpath anywhere.



Just after this photo i ran into a fellow ADV rider with same bike as mine who gave me directions to the ferry thanks very much.



Lining up to get on the ferry sucked especially for bikes it was hot and just creeping line I couldn't keep the bike on as it was overheating and melting the clutch so had to push it, that silver Subaru next to me overheated as well.



Finally strapped down on the ferry at 9pm time for a shower and beer it has been a very long day started riding at about 7am.


The BMW next to me was a guy from Tasmania who had just spent 3 weeks on the mainland they did about 8000kms and also did the crap Braidwood road resurfacing section i had to endure, we met for beers and i got some local info on where to go etc.
