Full of cattle ticks, big blue bastards, you can keep it,
cops can be tempermental too!! [ mainly mental ],
then again it's been 35 years since I crossed the border on a bike,
maybe the bad ones moved to Victoria????
Cheers

Now this reminds me of the letter to Mike and Mal Leyland asking what it was like to go to a city with some form of life, it was from Lisa in Adelaide.

Is that why your details are blank?

But it must have left an impression to remember that all these years later.

I must pass credit for this one to the old Samuel Peppy's Radio Show which led onto How Green Is My Cactus, the main voice being Ross Higgins (I think that was his name), who was Ted from Kingswood Country.

My vote is for my home state Vic.
We have, within about 3 hours of Melbourne each direction..
- the best high country in the land.
- potential snow riding any time of the year
- desert through Hattah/sunset and beyond
- beaches and dunes down along the west coast
- great scenic views, great pubs, remote locations
- some of the best touring roads in the country, although the fun nazis have recently reduced speed limits. Bah.

I've ridden all states bar WA and Tas. Whilst other states have good terrain, Vic has it all much closer together.

Any thoughts?
Yeah you like Victoria because you're never more than 10 minutes from a latte machine !!!

Vic = too small and too full of uhmmm people.....

As Bazza would say,

I was down by Brighton Pier, drinkin' tubes of ice cold beer,
With a bucket full of prawns upon my knee,
When I swallowed the last prawn,
I had a technicolor yawn and I left my mark in ole Victoria!

looks like I have to come fishing here more often not only got a few nibbles but landed a couple as well Truth of the matter is it doesn't matter where you are there's good adventure riding starting just outside your front door (even S.A.). You just got to get up off your rear end and go find it....for me with having only one leg all trips, even to the local shop are an adventure but for most people a major part of the adventure is actually looking for the road (or Trail) less traveled and discovering whats around you, either by yourself or a few mates and sitting around the campfire after a good days ride....just my two cents worth
