Default 2016, as seen by my Spot

Another year is in the mirror, and it was a year which had a lot of riding. After being made redundant at the end of 2015 I had plenty of time for job searching, or riding, mainly riding....

Started the year by going to Leongatha for a couple of nights with Jo and doing a bit of riding out along the grand ridge road and Tarra Bulga NP.

I did a loop out to Talbot

Jo and I joined the Austouring 10th anniversary beerathon in Eskdale


A dayloop with a lunch stop in Colbinabbin

I cooked up some alphabet soup

A dayride to Mt Macedon

A dayride out to Alma

A dayride to Ballarat and Geelong

Jo and I spent a weekend away to Corryong with the OpenRoad Tourers


Jo and I spent 8 days in Tassie

A dayride through Woods Point

I dayride up to the Hay Plains


On April 1 I met up with John and Johnny in Yea. I'm not sure if they were the April Fools or if it was me.

Jo and i went to Hamilton for an overnighter

I made a quick overnight dash to Sydney to attend a funeral of a fellow FarRider


I attended the FarRide in Lobethal, it was planned as a dayride but I did spend a few hours snoozing in my swag in a truck stop on the way.


I started not just a new job but a new career in June so there was no time for riding


I attended the Iron Butt of Australia inaugural muster in Parkes which included an iron butt length ride (1600+km/24hrs) to get there

Jo and I joined the OpenRoad tourers for their overnighter to Tungamah


Jo and I went for an overnighter to Ararat

There was no riding in September


Jo and I attended the Golden Dragon Rally in Tarnagulla again

Jo and I spent a couple of weeks on the roads heading to Qld and back


Jo and I attended the Domino Rally in Mitchell River NP

Jo and I joined the Openroad Tourers for an overnight ride to Barham


Jo and I joined other Austourers for an overnighter in Bruthen

The entire year looked like this

Total km for the year,

26,290km on the Super Tenere
6,187km on the Terra.
'13 TR650 Terra
'14 XT1200ZE Super Ténéré
