The Piglet Express - Rider 3


Bacon has been handed on to rider 4 today.

I spend yesterday showing Bacon the sights of Canberra and getting him visas for the hundreds of countries he is likely to visit.

Firstly, catching up on a a bit of Ozzie Kulcha at the museum.

Considering whether to take on the 'big jump' at the museum.

Picking up some political history at Old Parliament House.

Then off to new Parliament House to give Kev, the new Prime Minister some advice about cheap pork imports...

Chinese Embassy for first visa.

US Embassy (or as close as we plebs can get to take a photo) for second of many visas.

Checking out the path northwards for tomorrow's trip.

Me and my porcine mate checking out the view.

Then back home for a lovely bbq of pork chops, oh the irony...

Saturday morning, we headed straight up the freeway towards Sydney for a meeting with various ADV members. We met at Picton, about 70k out of Sydney. Then a nice little ride to Warragamba dam lookout. Warragamba is the main water supply for Sydney.

Andrew, Steve, Troy, Dave, Bacon and Me after a long chat about the merits of XTZ 660's.

The formal handover to Andrew2.

Bacon has now done 1800K's.

We headed back to Picton,

to give Bacon an introduction to Ozzie drinking customs with a few 'like minded' individuals on large chromey V-twin things.

Farewell little piggy, have a great trip.
