Exploring Australia - Where the hell am I?

Hey everybody
My Name is Dominik, I am from Germany and right now I am on my first big trip. The country to visit: Australia.
I have one year to explore the shit out of OZ :)
My plan so far: arrive in Perth and go around Australia anticlockwise.

This will be my first ride report ever so please excuse any mistakes especially my grammar as I am not a native speaker.

Lets start with the last preparations in Germany.
The last few weeks before leaving to Australia turned out to be a bit hectic. On my list were the following things to be done:

A motorcycle maintenance with oil changes, tire and wheel baring replacement, replacement of the chain set

As Australia has very strict quarantine regulations there had to be an extensive cleaning of the machine


Without the front panel

The bike had to be packed for shipment, luckily I had some help from friends and neighbors

Construction of the transport crate

Ready to go

Help from neighbour

Obtain all necessary travel documents, including among other things a Carnet de Passage, International vehicle papers and drivers license, a health insurance

80th birthday from Grandpa

My sister's wedding in Hamburg

A visit to the doctor for vaccination and to renew my diving medical examination, after which I also had an ultrasound of my heart but everything is alright

Greetings from down under.
