Noah, be warned! When you get to Australia the beer will be $10 or more! (and even crappy beer)

Great report, thanks for posting

Hey Noah,
Been following from the start and just want to say, thanks for the RR. I know it's a ton of work, more then I could do, but
I think the followers would agree it's very entertaining.

You need a DONATE button in your signature line.

Yes beer is EXPENSIVE in Oz. I was shocked at the price. And didn't find any beer I particularly liked.

And thanks for your efforts with the ride report Noah. You are writing a great story with some awesome pics of some places I may not get to see. Thanks!!!

Don't mean to hijack the thread here, but there is pretty good beer down under, but you will pay for it! Look for the Rare Breed from Mountain Goat Brewery. A great IPA, but ... $17 for a bomber.

Beer.

Been following this since i got my 690 in june. Very entertaining.
You guys must have been hanging out in Sydney.
So many delicious beers here i dont know where to start.

Hot tip are the suberban bowls clubs in summer for sunday barefoot bowls and beers. Set there prices in 1957 i think. Some still have $1 pots!
Cheers noah, enjoy the Asahi. Lotta work man. Id be just ridin.
Cam.

Awesome ride report Noah! I have been following along for quite a while now. Your ability to “Improvise, Adapt and Overcome” the various obstacles you have encountered is simply inspiring (you should have joined the military…but then your travels would be seen from a slightly different point of view ) Great write up and photos, you really bring us into your world! As a side note, you have got me seriously thinking about adding the KTM 690 Enduro to my stable of rides

Noahs RR has sold quite a few KTM's They'd be wise to keep him in their good graces

Mate I'll buy you a beer when you get to Oz. I know of a few decent brews already, but I'll keep looking in the mean time just to be sure.

thak you

Hey Noah, great ride and report. Thank you for taking us along, you are living the dream, not only yours but many of ours as well.

I will have to wait a bit to be back on the road, I chose to have a baby. No regrets, I love him, but somekind I miss motrobike trips. Now I "travel" trhough your updates, so thanks for that mate.

keep it rolling,
