Tools in the front, kitchen in one pannier, misc and tools in the other, clothes, tent etc in the blue bag. The tank bag has become like a massive handbag.. can never find anything. BUT it does expand to fit a 6 packs at the end of the day (Yes Mum they're cans).
I am at West Wyalong and have had a couple of beers and a swim. Life is damn amazing! Had so many long chats to people today as I went. I love how Charlie brings a smile to everyones face!
Post some more later and answer some posts.

Hello Melbourne Had a small incident yesterday (near Seymour) where I binned it in a rest stop, got my foot stuck under the bike and bent the gear lever in. It was a tired mistake and a couple of guys lifted the bike up for me. Then I spent a while working out how to straighten the lever. I thought it was done and had a big rest but 50m down the road I found I couldn't get past 2nd gear so I had to do it again, this time in the sun. Made me glad I carry a good selection of tools. Anyway its all good, sore ankle and hand but nothing broken.

It's not an adventure without a bit of drama.
Glad you & charlie are OK.
Safe travels girl.

Nothings broken but I have some nice bruising on my hip, swollen ankle and sore hand. All part of the adventure Would like to say I have been relaxing but since I got here we have been shopping and going out almost continuously lol. That's probably why the ankle is swollen.
The rest stops here are great! Nothing like back home.

I'm a roaming cowboy riding all day long,
Tumbleweeds around me sing their lonely song.
Nights underneath the prairie moon,
I ride along and sing this tune.


See them tumbling down
Pledging their love to the ground
Lonely but free I'll be found
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.


Cares of the past are behind
Nowhere to go but I'll find
Just where the trail will wind
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.


I know when night has gone
That a new world's born at dawn.

I'll keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.
