A large gold mining operation like the Super-Pit requires large and heavy equipment.

MANLY >>> MANLY RUN 2014
Arrived Valentines Day 2014 in Sydney, picked up a rental BMW R1200GS-LC for basic transportation between business meetings and some relaxed cruising.
Mates offered generously to take some bikes for a while but rather get a rental (all inclusive deal like unlimited mileage / insurance, etc.) just in case an incident or accident of any sort happens...













Busy days at my favourite Northern Sydney area = Manly Beach due to the Australian Open Surfing Competition.
Manly Beach: http://www.manlyaustralia.com.au



















Quick lunch run up to other Northern Beaches (Sydney) for lunch and to get to know the BMW better and try out the different riding modes.

Last minute errands done, roadside snacks prepared and finally getting ready to depart from Manly Beach.
Route takes me North via the Sydney - Newcastle freeway (M1/F3) to the NSW Reptile Park http://www.reptilepark.com.au (Gosford, catching up with a mate for a coffee and pork ribs lunch).













Onwards North from Gosford along the coastal Pacific Highway via The Entrance and Swansea to Newcastle (overnight as mates live in Newcastle / NSW).

Departing from Newcastle along the costal Pacific Highway heading North towards Byron Bay a stopover at the Australia National Motorcycle Museum is mandatory as usual.
Australia's largest collection of vintage, veteran, and classic motorcycles. The Museum is in Nabiac NSW, 140km north of Newcastle before Taree on the Pacific Highway.
Museum website: http://nationalmotorcyclemuseum.com.au









































































Of course had to buy a souvenir for my personal gas-station memorabilia collection, a Michelin "Bibendum" Statue (Detriot Car Exhibition 1918).

Up further along the Pacific Highway through Coffs Harbour / NSW (The Big Banana) and passing the Giant Prawn (Ballina / NSW).











Resting up in Byron Bay for the night. Byron Bay is a beachside town located in the far-northeastern corner of the state of New South Wales, Australia.
It is located 772 kilometres north of Sydney and 165 kilometres south of Brisbane.
