So it seems Saturday bike maintenance and Sunday riding is most convenient.
What's this "AM" you speak of?

any perth riders this weekend

Hi , sorry to jump into your thread , Im from Ireland and am planning a bike trip across oz april next year, will try hire a bike in Sydney and head out west to Melborne Adeilade Port Augusta Alic Uluri back the way I came [to risky to go outback on my own] west along cost heading for Albany and up to Perth, I have relatives in Ellenbrook where I will finish, Can any of you guys on here offer any advise , will be camping as much as iI can to keep cost down, have done route 66 in US but stayed in Motels on route, Do a lot of rallys in UK but I know I will have to deal with heat instead of rain, although I know you get your fair share when it does rain. Was in Perth last year had a great time, stayed in Mullaloo, Kind Regards Noel

Place is full of irish backpackers.

Did the west to east trip with a couple of Irish lads on CBR's on the way to the Moto GP last year.
We met them in Norseman and the beer consumption went up for the rest of the trip.
They/we stayed pretty much in budget/backpacker accommodation which was cheap enough and it allowed us to travel light.

Plenty of guys with more ADV miles than me who will chip in I'm sure.

Really cool roads for really cool riding memories, loosely based on your travel plans.......and my failing faculties!

Sydney-Melbourne
Kiama up thru to Canberra and Braidwood
Back roads around Warburton, Vic, and thru the Dandenongs.

Melbourne-Adelaide
Great Ocean Road, hills into Adelaide from SE of South Oz.

Adelaide-Uluru return
Try to go the long way tp Pt Augusta via the Riverina, then thru Peterborough and the Flinders Ranges. On the trip north, John's Pizza Parlour in Coober Pedy has the best damn pizza's in the world (if it still exists, used to be run by an old Italian POW who stayed!), and MUST SEE underground homes in Coober Pedy.

Pt Augusta-Norseman, WA
Breakaway rocky country, dry scrub and parched earth, HEAPS to see across Nullabor if your into watching wildlife, underground artesian basins of gigantic proportions.

Norseman-Esperance-Albany
Roos, lots of them, then more, etc. The bush changes every 50km, sometimes over each other hill or ridge. Pink lakes caused by bacteria in the salt lakes, dunes so white they burn the eyes.

Albany-Perth
If you go via Walpole along the coast to Margeret River, more vineyards than you can poke a stick at, amazing limestone caves. Stop at Valley of the Giants outside Walpole to see the Tingle Trees.......I swear they hum.....

Lucky bastard!

what Rod said but throw in the Grampians after the Great Ocean rd and stick to the Barossa and Clare Valleys instead of going to Adelaide (place is full of church's-apparently)

The Monaro highway or the Alpine rd's are worth a look when going from Sydney to Melbourne.

Bought a bike on eBay ( 85 R80) last year in California then rode it to Missouri. Put it back on eBay again and sold it. Should be able to do the same here or similar. I am in Perth.
Did bits of route 66 as well. Then went around the world.

No info here, but I do know that Nanga has at least 2 terrific (dangerous) bends on the tar section depending on your perspective. The graded parts are all pretty easy to follow.

I wonder where this incident took place?

Condolences to all concerned.

Rider hit a patch of gravel on a bend and lost control. He was a rider with PSB and has now given up smoking, drinking, sex and motorbikes.

That road is notorious for loose gravel and as such should be ridden with caution.
