Yes, a piece of cake, just did it.

As an option, email Deanne at TNL Auckland to receive the bike. She'll take care of the tax and the refund and walk it through quarantine. They were so slick I'll use them for Oz coming up.

Aaahh, New Zealand! I went there in 2011 and rode around the North Island. I was so flabbergasted by the scenery, the roads, the people, that I returned the next year with a group of friends for a dream ride , this time through both islands. The experience was pure bliss.

NZ= Motorcycle Heaven

Noah,

This bring back any memories of a former life?



Was playing hurry up and wait at a steel mill this morning in Brazil, decided to take a pic of the hard hat. Forget which critter we weren't allowed to trench through its nest on that job. But do remember hours of training about the critter

I know there's a lot left on my list.... but I might be stuck in Australia for a while so no bad thing.

I lived in NZ about six months of the year for the last eight or nine years. For me, even being Australian...., its like one big country town. Some of the friendliest peeps you will meet anywhere in the world, and definitely the friendliest traffic cops. The bonus for travel by road is everything is about two hours away, where I live everything is 5 hours away. local shops 130Kms. hope you get the logistics sorted mate.

rideon.
I will do as many of these as possible. I'd love to do the Canning stock route but it is 1800 km with no fuel unless you have drop-offs. So this is probably not an option unless someone is doing it north to south start of August and wants to let me join

We will do the Simpson desert and part of Gunbarrel highway. I'll go north and he will go back to Sydney. I'm going to try to do as much offroad I think many places its inevitable.

I'm not sure where that one is. But I don't think I worked on it. I forget about it some times.. but then I meet someone in a similar industry and we can nerd out for a while.

That was the wind farm project outside Milford, UT. I was only on that project for a short time supporting one of the trenches that were laying cable on the project.

Im not sure but I think you can get fuel at one of the aboriginal communities along there now. Though still probably not a good idea to do it solo anyway. Lots of info on the canning on the Australian forum.

I've been on the road for almost 2 months now and I find I'm always behind. It's kind of like my job!

It could be. I saw a pic of Noah and Anna Grechishkina (solo from Ukraine on a KTM 1190) together in a photo last week, in Sydney.

Probably just a coincidence.

This is true. We met up for lunch. She has been on the road for about a year now. Soon she will be doing a ride report on adv. She is shipping to USA tomorrow and will be riding route 66. She loves doing meetings with schools, kids, old folks homes ect. If she is coming through your town, I'm sure she would love to meet you, especially if you want to set up some sort of talk or something. She is a very inspiring woman.
You can find her website here. http://www.ihaveadreamrtw.com/

A post from Facebook.
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

I've been staying with Guiltyparty for the last week or so. On Thursday he is taking 2.5 weeks off of work and we are riding into the outback. We will do the Simpson desert then he he will come back to work and I'll continue on. Yesterday we met up with David Darcey of "Continental Drift" fame. In 2012 they took 2 690s from London to Australia and made some cool videos. In May a few of the crossed the Simpson. It was good to get some pointers and tips. Also David is letting me borrow his 12 liter fuel bladder. I'll have to carry 20 liters extra water and 15 liters extra fuel. But there aren't many non-Australians who can say they have crossed the Simpson. Since we have to carry so much extra fuel and water, I won't be riding with my computer or any other luxuries. So after Thursday.. expect some silence for a few weeks till I get to Darwin where I'll send some stuff ahead of me.

The handing of the bladder.
