Hey Mark - Great going, congratulation on completing 02 years on Road.

Now don't you think you should have been celebrating it with a typical 'RADIAOMAN JUMP'

Mark - Thank you for the inspirational journey; in more ways than one. Like many others, I log on every day to see where you are and how you are. Congrats on two years on the road!

Amazing Journey!

Hey Mark! Congrats on two years on the road. What really amazes me about your trip is what a great job you do sharing it with the rest of us. I know that it is a huge time commitment! Fortunately, that commitment is much appreciated. Thanks for taking us along and amazing us with your entertaining stories and terrific photos.

I'm glad you are still enjoying the experiences the world has to offer and thanks for sharing it with the rest of us. . . . .

But, it's June and you're in Australia

Keep on enjoying your adventure.

PS I really like that last jump for joy.

More Great Aussie Hospitality!

Had a great stay at Precis outside of Melbourne. Loved the conversations. In the morning Steve road out to King Lake to see the places that had huge fires a couple years ago. Destroyed this area about two hundred people. Very sad !



Saying goodbye to another great ADV rider!! Thanks Steve, Liz and Bronwyn



Lots of burnt tree along the way.



Then I met up with friends of Simeon's who agreed to have me come and stay. Arrive at their home, they had cleared the garage for my bike.....



Figured we would get a few photos of Steve and Helen on the bike..... So they could send them off to Mum to tell her they were ready to head off for a RTW ride



Helen was having fun imagining careening down some twisty road



Once again I was treated to a lovely meal, with my new friends. Great conversations over dinner with some lovely Red wine.



One Glass of wine turned into a few more and we were of late. Great evening

Overdoing it a bit, I decided to stay another night and wait for the weatehr to improve a bit on the Great Ocean Road. So I had a the breakfast of the Aussies



Got some logistics settled, reviewed some Ride Reports, and relaxed. In the evening I was treated to another great meal! at a Coopers Sparling Ale (my favorite beer of all time!)



Lovely Vegetables ...



Never leave your camera unattended!!



And Helen helped me remember to get the camera and tripod out to get a photo of the evening! Thanks Steve and Helen for a wonderful stay!

A question on those photos -how come you were drinking beer from a jam jar? Is there a story there? Coopers tastes great straight from the stubby!
Hope you get good weather for the Great Ocean Ride

That would be one of the "12 Apostles" in the background? Many moons ago I rode a Yammy RD125 onto "London Bridge" which I understand has fallen down now (no, seriously). They let you do stuff like that before OH&S became a scourge and before NPWS became the Nazi Parks and Wildlife Service. Nice photos of your ride!
