The Plan.........it was a simple one. Hop on the KLR & ride to Wollongong via the coast rd. from Brisbane on day 1. spend two days visiting my brother. and return on the 4th day via New England H'way.
Preparation was minimum, I had recently returned from a 5000km Outback trip. Oil /filter and a chain adjust was about it. As usual I did not sleep too well and was on the road by 2.45am.
What a great time of day to be on good highway, alone. Reaching the Tweed I saw a flash of lightning ,or was it a speed camera on the north bound lane. Yes lightning, but I thought I'd be 90k south within the hour. no probs.
In the cool of morning the KLR was just purring along. I reach the Byron Bay range just on dawn.
