[QUOTE=TowPro;22129430]Did you put another one of these tires on?
. Yes I did. The 50/50 for where I am riding is probably the best option. Just will refrain from riding "briskly" in the twisties.

About that shattered lens on that Yamaha; perhaps find out the specific model and year and post it up and someone might come up with the replacement lens.

Cheers
I was thinking the same thing about the lens

Mark, I will be following along with great interest your next expedition.

I just finished up watching Ewen and Charley's Long way Down (on netflix)

Africa is going to be quite the treat

The biggest difference is you are your own man, no stinking SAG chase vehicles following you

Your Da Man................ Things to come

Has been great meeting up with Rob and Di in Perth!

On the weekend, we met up with some other BMW club members before they rode north to Karijini area...



Did a bit of sightseeing around Perth.



And here is Davey.... With his mascot traveler



We stopped to see Rob's Mum, and have a cup of tea. They have an amazing collection of history.





It was a lifetime of collecting ....all on display. Was a real treat to get to see where his parents passions were.







Then we stopped in the town and watched the Targa racers at the pit stop



and a tour back through Perth





Then a quick wash of my bike..... to get ready for Service at BMW



Then down to Fremantle to check that out, and stop at Little Creatures brewery.
and a Tall ship that was in port



And the local artwork...



This little girl was interested as we encouraged her to get in the photo



and some Colombian Dancers! They were glad I had visited their country



Then a look at the beach. Indianna Restaurant at Cottelsoe Perth



And another great day in Australia, with new friends!



Monday while my bike was being serviced. Needed a new clutch cable, and new front brake rotors as the floating rivets are really loose. then a full checkover.

I met John at the mine town of Tom Price. He took a photo of my bike,and then googled Radioman, and emailed me to offer accommodation and a chance to go for a ride. Had too many offers in Perth to be able to stay with everyone, but a chance to go ride off road on a smaller bike.... Oh Yea



John showed up with a Honda Cr 500 two stroke and WR 450.

We road up to Jarrahdale and rode around the water reservoirs.



Just a great time on dirt roads, single track, bush wacking !





Thanks John!! Was great. Back in time to pick up my bike at the dealer!

As the sun slowly sinks in the West on Radioman's great Australian Adventure, and the new horizon of the African continent begins to appear, a final musical tribute to the land down under. Here on the Radioman Network.

Mark,
Perth is a great place, only a bit behind the times, at least two hours behind the East Coast. Settle guys just joking!

Freemantle is a wonderfull place with many boutique beers. Don't forget to visit the Brass Monkey at Northbridge and have a stout for me - think I got that right, not been to Perth in a while. Last but not least is the famous Redback pilsener from the Matilda bay Brewery.

When do you depart for Africa?

Stay safe and enjoy a few more days in Australia. Not forgetting the prayers.

cheers

Rob A.

Finally got caught up. For some reason school keeps getting in the way.

Ride on, Radioman!
