All ride's start in Adelaide right ..................... Did you get a smile.(At least one member should have a smile):motorbike2:
The bike is ready the sun is up and we are expecting about 85f. We will start by going over the Hills, crossing over the river Murry and down along the Coorong. Then we will follow the sea down to Kingston. At Kingston we will head inland to Horsham (Victoria) to our over night stop at Stawell.
So climb aboard, there will be photos.

Today was the first IB ride for this year.(For a Candy Arsed Tourer)
We got a late start because one of those:spam: type low life crashed Vanessa's lap top. So before we could leave we needed to take it to the Dr to get it fixed. And we needed to cover 400 miles today.(That is a IB ride for a CAT member)
The rebuilt seat on the 1200 was not a big improvement, so I think I will order a after market seat for it in the States. Otherwise the 1200 ran sweet. We rode at 65-70 mph and got 35 mpg.
Leaving Adelaide at 9:30 and arriving at Meningie for an early lunch. Meningie is only 100 mile out of Adelaide, so that ment we still had 300 mile to go. The camera was put away and we had to make tracks.
So for those that are new to the forum, here are some photo from my trip down here last year. The first photo is Meningie, second photo is of the Coorong, 3&4 is at Kingston.(The lobster is called 'Larry")
We will lift our game with photo's in Victoria tomorrow.

I run into Australian customers now and then and it's great when I ask them where they are from. I can respond , " Oh! You're such and such from Adelaide near the such and such town of....... " Have you ever been to such and such place ? "

There's no way Vanessa is on the back of the 250!:2guns:

She loves her Wing too much.

Great pics Eric. Never see too many folks in the pics from down under. Must not be a very populated place...

For 300 miles of the ride we would not have seen more than 30 cars. We were riding country back roads. Today we will start with 30 miles main hwy. Then it will be back roads for 300 miles. We are goimg to see some good country today. But I dont think we will have the internet where we are staying.

Hope you are having a good time but how did you get Vanessa to put up the camera? Also old pictures aren't really sporting. Still looking for that proof.....

At Ararat we turned of and went down the Pyrenees Hwy through the Pyrenees ranges. The sun was in the wrong spot but we did what we could with the photos.

We have our breakfast at Avoca. It is a small town and a old town by Australian standards.
