Cool2 2 weeks in Australia - suggestions?

Greetings fellow ADVer's. A friendly Yank from Chicago has two weeks in Australia this July and looking for advice and suggestions to fill the itinerary. Being a member of ADV it goes without saying that a motorbike experience is going to be part of the plan. Likely flying into Sydney, but Perth or Darwin are not out of the running as a point of entry.

I don't have a set itinerary as yet, some points of interest include Sydney, The Barrier Reef (scuba diver here), Uluru because it looks awesome and the Kimberley region. I know, I've picked four points of a vast continent, so looking for help narrowing things down.

Have begun investigation into a guided dirt moto trip up the Gibb River Road from Broome. Also considering simply hiring a bike for the full duration of my stay to travel from place to place. While I enjoy a great city as much as the next guy my true love is the outdoors and wide open spaces.

Looking for advice and suggestions. Thanks

American's get a lot of this cheeky jostling from Aussies.

It's best to pretend to be Canadian, for some reason many Australians have chip on their shoulder about "seppos".

Anyway here's a good blog os some Australian travels.
