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.
