I'm loving it. It's economical. 20 ks per l. Comfortable enough. And the engine is just sweet. It's a beauty!

The start of your report I thought to myself why didn't you take the car.. Now I saw where you were riding too, how silly of me.

Beautiful part of the world and great riding too

No offence, mate but those 2 look like they've just kissed a bus! Head on!
No doubt they belong to the same family!

My week in Brisbane was over soon enough.
So Brissie does what Brissie does, and sends me out with an all too familiar sight.



My mate had a busy schedule but took time out to escort me to the border.



We said our goodbyes at Woodenbong, and I continued on through this fab forest.



There were plenty of B grade roads to bump and grind through, but at least there were no average speed gantry's. So on occaision I could open it up and do the speed limit.



After what seemed like every road in the State of NSW, I made a b line for Coonabarabran. Checked into 1 of the local pubs and just revelled in the air -conditioned bar.
This was the un air conditioned bit!



After dinner I went for a stroll. The streets were alive.
Nice enough town I thought.
