Arrived at Panhead Petes in Buddina for a stay.
One of his childhood mates came around and was going for a ride in the AM.... So I rode west of Nambour through a few national parks.

Met Eric and Will at The Big Pineapple.



Cloudy Morning but some nice scenery, and saw lots of wildlife. Wallabys, Big red fox, Deer, and Some Black Cockatoo's





Eric and Will as we stop for an overlook.



Then I took a ride up to Noosa Heads for a look.



It's School holidays so lots of people out on the beaches.



Then I stop at Peregian Beach where they had some live music next to the beach.



And of course the warnings that there are Speed Cameras EVERYWHERE.

Thanks Will for keeping tabs on the stats. Just so glad to be able to share the journey with so many ADVriders!

Just made up the Camera Mount with some part like these. Mounted with custom bracket to Handlebar.

Plus a ball joint and then quick release. Could not find the one I have, but something like these....

Hope that helps!

Day off the bike

Sometimes you need to just enjoy a day off the bike.

Pete was picking up his 36 Ford, and doing some errands



I headed for a walk on the beach.



Nice sunny day on the Sunshine coast. had a great walk on the beach!







Just a few other runners on the beach



The inland waterways remind me of South Florida



And of course getting my laundry washed, and hung out to dry.



Tracked my package of my new Woodys rear wheel... Arrived Sydney and hopefully passed through Customs and should deliver tomorrow and be shipped up to Brisbane so I can run down and pick it up!

G'day Mark
Been a lurker here for years but reading your adventure from the start over the last few months has inspired me. (Amazing the things you do when forced to be sober) Currently in the UAE for work but only for a few more weeks before I head home to Perth.

I know you have had offers already but I haven't ridden my tigger for several months now and am keen to give her a good run if you want some company. Even have approval to offer lodgings down Rockingham way.

On another note I will be heading over to far north Queensland later in the year, again with work, to start my own new chapter and the plan is to do lots of adventuring so am interested in your thoughts.

Keep up the good work and enjoy the lucky country.
Roger

Another day on the Sunshine Coast.

A part of normal everyday Aussie life. But I have not acquired the taste for it



Took a bit of a ride, but have had a really sore neck and shoulders. So I stopped at a Physio place. Good move on my part. They did a really good job getting it back in order. Not a dodgy massage place







Then rode over the Australia Zoo.



Big Croc here.



And the whole Erwin family in Bronze



Was in time for a Croc Show



Learned a few things about Croc's





Still behind the fence





Then a bit of exploring to see the other Aussie animals.





Watched a Birds of Pray show.



Then as I was looking at the Wombats....



A guy looks at me in my moto gear. "hey are you Radioman?" Yup. "your famous"

It is ADV rider Jelkie and his family enjoying an afternoon at the Zoo! Nice to meet you



Was a really great Zoo.



Stopped and Bought some new maps for the middle of the country!






And finally my new rear Wheel has arrived in Sydney and SYDADVGS has generously forwarded the wheel to Brisbane so that I can pick it up tomorrow and start heading further north!
