Kath's mad warm up ride!

First solo motorcycle adventure! Very cool! I think my first one was at about 18, riding my Honda 400F to the Olympic Penninsula from Seattle. Years later, I still love that feeling of being on the bike and just heading out!

Thanks for sharing, my first solo trip was last year, about 2200 miles over 9 days. My son will be with me this year on a Honda crf230L, glad to see the smaller sized bikes making the miles.

Awesome effort 'legs

Great ride and report.

I know what you mean about going again. I did a trip from Adelaide to Wollongong and return just after Christmas via the South East, Otways, Vic High Country and swung through the Grampians on the way back. Just under 5000 kms all up and had a fantastic time. Planning for the next one began just after I'd unpacked.

All the best with your future trips.

Andy

Left Rob at home hey?

Or have you replaced him with Turbo?

Cheers: Jaq and Lin.
Yep, she left me here. Funny, I was often somewhat worried/wondering about her during the trip.

Doubt she does the same though when I take off!

Well done legend!

Yeah.
I'm the same with Lin.
Not that I don't trust her riding skills, it's all the other dickheads on the roads.
