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.
