My Mum and her best friend in 1950 rode from Brisbane to Cairns and back (2200 miles) the tar finished 10 miles north of Brisbane and so did most of the bridges.At most towns they were photographed for the local paper as women, especially riding motorbikes without a male escort was unheard of.
This is the main highway, mum's friend checking the depth ready to cross
After that ride Mum then rode Brisbane to Adelaide and back (3200 miles) mostly gravel roads by herself
She is still going strong at 85 and goes back packing all over Australia
Regards Eric

Bikes even when I started in the 60s were tough and we regularly took our 305 Hawks etc on off road trails and jumped dunes etc.
Spills that would do a thousand dollars in damage these days or more were the norm and you might bust a lever or lose a turn signal.
Most thinks just got bent back into place.

I recall riding the clay hills north of HWY 403 on various road bikes.



Sure the later Bultaco or TL125 were far more precise but hell we had fun in the mud and hills on anything that would keep running

I think my leg still gets sore in rainy weather from a suddenly appearing gully under the Superhawk.....damn that was a loooong way down.
Bike took it....leg.....not so much.

Adventure is where you find it and tough lighter do anything simple bikes opens more opportunities. One reason I like the CB500x.
It's also one reason I encourage street riders to get off the pavement.

Downside is trying to find places to ride :(

Still.....doing a heavy old Harley off road takes a special breed.

My GF road around on a similar vintage Honda 175 on Palm Island and out in the bush in Australia. Simpler times.

Sometimes I wonder we are too coddled with our speciality machines....my KLR is closer to that spirit.
