Thanks for posting up your holiday.

How huuuge was that Yack steak

And the double cheese burger

Couple of nights later I finally got into the Punkah Pub.

Gotta say the burgers are better at Yack

excellent report Doug. pity re the dodgy weather up north but I'm sure it will remain a memorable trip. Also that beemer of yours wouldn't even have broken into a sweat gobbling up the km's I reckon. Good touring machine for sure.
